Being organized is fun once you get the right system for your lifestyle.

 

Jane Stoller is a Lifebizz Organizer, Author and University Instructor who found her passion in de-cluttering spaces, business processes and closets. The Structure Strategist loves to help companies and individuals get more organized.

Where did Jane’s organizing knack comes from? She believes it must be her Swiss roots. Jane’s love for organizing began when she was six years old: As a young girl she was often found happily lining up her cats by size, her stuffed animals by color, her books by publication date.

What makes Jane’s organizing approach unique is her holistic method. She starts redefining your office and continues at your home – or vice versa. The end results of her seminars, coaching and/or consultations? Reduced stress, increased happiness and productivity.

“Organizing is a lifestyle, that will help you conquering anything.” Jane strongly believes that custom-tailored organizing systems and routines will massively enhance your work and life. By now, she did not only convince numerous friends and her family but also various clients of this mantra.

Accounting is important for any business but can be time-consuming and of course can be outsourced. However I use NEAT for all my receipts so I can forward from my email or take a picture with my phone and discard the paper. I then send to Quickbooks and get a full snapshot of my business. All takes less than 5 minutes a day for me to have a financial snapshot. Plus no keeping paper receipts.
