In the current podcast series, I am sharing my conversations with members of the Dream Team while we are in the messy middle of some of our current transitions. In this four part series we will be unpacking the most commonly asked FAQs for different parts of the Organize 365® transformational journey. I want to keep you updated on changes and improvements as we declutter and organize before our 10th Anniversary in January 2022. We are not eliminating anything, or raising our prices on any existing products. We are simply doing some decluttering, organizing, and increasing productivity.
This week, I am sharing my conversation with Emily Kelly, our Director of Customer Success as we dive into All Access - the complete solution to getting finally organized. Honestly, I don’t think we realize how much our physical home impacts our emotional, mental, and physical well-being. We underestimate the impact getting organized can have on our lives - even up to ten years into the future.
I designed All Access to motivate, encourage, and inspire you to go after your own dreams. Getting organized is just the starting point to sharing your unique gift with the world. There are lots of questions we get about All Access, so listen in and see if we answer yours!
All Access FAQ
- What is All Access? What does it include?
All Access is everything you need to get your entire home organized. It is also training in the skills of organization.
- 100 Day Home Organization Program
- 4 Essential Reference Binders - systems for organizing and storing all of your archive papers
- Kids Program OR physical photo program
- Supportive online community
- I want to do 100 Days AND the Sunday Basket® - can I do them both?
Yes! All of the Organize 365® systems work together. The Sunday Basket® is the foundation of an organized home. You can start with the Sunday Basket® and then go All Access, or you can buy them together and have all of your supplies for Lisa school ready to go at once.
- I’m still confused why you are not selling the 100 Day Home Organization Program as a stand alone option anymore. Can you share the decision beyond that change again please?
As a teacher, it’s better for me to know everyone has all of the resources they need to be successful. All Access really is everything you need to transform your life in one year, so we now offer it only as a full program.
The other reason we changed is to serve all of you better by syncing the cadence of planners, planning day, and the 100 Day Program. Now, no matter when you join, you will have what you need to start in the current season. This makes it easier to deliver training in the skills of organization and is less confusing for you.
- I'm afraid I am TOO disorganized… My situation is complicated. What if I am a borderline hoarder/depressed/have gone through loss? Can I succeed?
We will meet you where you are. Through All Access, you will learn to look at things differently and use your spaces differently. You can succeed! I will help you adjust your mindset and become more empowered. If you know you are going to join eventually - start now and make small progress.
- I’m ready to get my home organized, but I’m not sure I understand. In the 100 Day Program, am I trying to make every space perfect in 15 minutes? Why do you talk about three rounds?
I look at organization in a different way than other professional organizers. Most people currently selling organizing services focus on one of these three parts of the total process. Going through our home three times in a calendar year means that the same spaces are evaluated in different seasons and in multiple situations. Each round of the 100 Days has a different focus for our efforts, and this results in true transformation.
Decluttering - This is the first approach many people take when “getting organized.” It is the easiest and quickest way to change your space. Get rid of whatever you don’t need in a space and be done.
Organizing - After removing excess from your home, take what is left and organize those items. Put similar items together using what you already have in your home.
Productivity - Become more productive - get more things done in less time. Digitize, optimize, or make things useful.
- Wait, what? A new private podcast… expound please!
This is the missing piece in the whole All Access system. I understand intuitively what an American homeowner is thinking about and what they want to be organizing. I have been analyzing and thinking about all 52 weeks of the year for all ten years of Organize 365®. I am using that information to make a private All Access podcast available only in our new online community app starting December 5, 2021.
- Ok, yes, let's expound on those binders. Do we “need” them, why, what is in them, tell me everything!
I know people can sometimes feel a resistance to the binders. They are a physical product, and we desperately want to be paperless. However, as a paper expert and author of The Paper Solution, I can help you declutter, organize, and increase productivity for your paper too.
- I really don’t feel I need or want the binders. I’ll give you one more try to convince me.
You might not need or want your binder. However, when someone needs to advocate for you, they need access to your information. It’s not just about having an organized system for your papers. It is about getting the necessary information out of your head and available to someone else. Having a place to go in an unexpected event also helps to reduce your own stress. If you really don’t want them, give them as gifts to your own family, a retirement home, hospice center, or any medical facility, real estate broker. Bless someone else.
- What if now is not the right time to tackle organizing my whole house? (A daughter getting married, a daughter in law is pregnant, we are moving, etc.) -
There is never a perfect 100 days. We don’t see that as a limitation - this is a lifetime program. We have been here for ten years already and are continuing to support you and improve the value of our programs.Start now and make incremental progress.
We restart as a group three times each year. You can start any day with any single task. Progress over perfection. As a way to support you, every planning day has you look at your time, schedule, family, and commitments for the upcoming 120 days and make a plan for how much you can get done and when you will work on the 100 Day tasks.
- How can I get started?
We hope that getting your home and paper will change your life. If you still want to learn more, check out All Access. If you want to try out a week of the program for free, we have a free week to help you get you started in your laundry room.
