With processes and procedures in place, I feel waaay more confident about being able to grow my team and get them doing the things that are most important for the expansion of my business.
I LOVE my life! I work from my home office (sometimes in my robe!) and love having the flexibility to work when and where I want. My office is painted in a beautiful purple and pink and I feel myself sigh and relax when I walk into the room.
Before working 1-on-1 with Melody, I was feeling challenged by trying to put systems in place, so that I could start to build my team. I wasn’t even sure where to start, so it kept getting delayed because I just felt overwhelmed trying to figure it out.
I have tried before by re-organizing, spring cleaning and de-cluttering, both in my office and on my computer and online documents, and got a few things done but always seemed to get side-tracked and forget to go back and finish it up. Or if I finish, it’s all good and great for a while, but then things start to build back up again because I don’t have a SYSTEM to keep it done!
Melody’s 1-on-1 guidance really helped me to stay focused and on-track, so I got a LOT more done and now have systems & routines in place to keep me on track going forward! I now have:
1) a wonderful filing system for my computer docs, Google docs and emails! It makes sense and is easy for me to use.
2) a routine / schedule that lays out what days I’m focusing on different areas of my business, and takes into account how my energy is throughout my cycle. This helps me feel like I’m really on purpose and optimizing my energy and what I’m capable of throughout the month, so that I get more done and feel good about what I’m working on.
3) more checklists and documentation in place so the whole business runs like a well-oiled machine. It’s fabulous! I feel much more able to continue working on my systems by myself, now that Melody has gotten me started!
When I was considering investing with Melody, I didn’t let the financial investment or my doubt about making the time to do the actual work in the program stop me. I realize now that I couldn’t afford NOT to make the time to do this, because it has really helped me to create time for other things that are important for my business growth.
Plus, working 1-on-1 with someone like that helps ME to take it more seriously and really give it my all.
If you’re considering working with Melody, having that support and someone in your corner helping you get streamlined is a real TREAT and will absolutely help you grow your business! Go for it! It was well worth the investment to get her help and guidance with this! I never would have gotten this far on my own.
Now, I’m super excited about building a strong, well-organized, team that can support me in the work I do with my clients and in other pieces for my business! With processes and procedures in place, I feel waaay more confident about being able to grow my team and get them doing the things that are most important for the expansion of my business.

Melody had everyone leaping into action immediately… Even weeks later they’re STILL buzzing about her insights!
“Melody Granger recently gave an outstanding presentation to my “Unstoppable Entrepreneurs Academy”. It was so well designed that Melody had everyone leaping into action immediately… Even weeks later they’re STILL buzzing about her insights! Melody not only provided a beautifully-designed, elegantly-simple, and well-organized talk – but her natural passion for her topic was infectious!!!
She shared from the heart, while also giving us practical ideas that any entrepreneur could implement immediately. She’s not only warm, well-spoken and funny, but she’s been blessed with a natural gift for all things “organized”. Any group would be transformed by hearing her speak, and I can’t thank Melody enough for bringing life to what can often be an overwhelming, confusing, or complicated topic — she’s an organizational GURU!!!!”

I never realized that in a couple of sessions with her I could have my office completely organized and functional for me.
My teachers and I inspire students of all ages and various instruments to love music. I have my own music studio business, Winterhalter Music, in the Washington, DC metro area. I work partially at home (taking care of administrative tasks of the business) and partially away from home (in-home lessons for my students). I have a great office to work in, but it was always extremely messy and cluttered.
The mess affected my productivity and instead of working on an important task, I would spend my precious time looking for the important papers I needed. Now I feel a great peace of mind rather than overwhelm. I am much more productive, calm and relaxed. It’s easier to prioritize what to work on. Many times I’d opt to work out of a different room (my bedroom, the kitchen table, etc.), so I could avoid my office and my desk. I no longer have to relocate to another area of my house to get work done because my office looks inviting and I feel inspired to work in it.
With Melody, I accomplished more in several hours than I ever did in months trying to tackle things on my own. She knew exactly what to do. I almost didn’t work with her, because I kept thinking I could probably get it done myself, even though it wasn’t getting done. The office was the one place I could never fully tackle myself. I was also really afraid I’d feel extremely tired and burned out after 4-5 straight hours of organizing – especially an area I had been resisting and putting off for months. The 1-on-1 intensive VIP Office sessions were so productive that I felt a good, natural, happy high afterwards that being a little bit tired was well worth the price. I was so pleased that I was finally tackling the office.
It was very cool to meet over Skype. It felt like Melody was right there with me. She wanted to make sure that the systems we set up would be practical and work for me. I never realized that in a couple of sessions with her I could have my office completely organized and functional for me. It’s been fantastic to get rid of items that I no longer want or need, too.
I loooooove knowing where all of my important papers are and being able to find anything on a moment’s notice. Giving everything a home has helped so tremendously… I feel like I am in control, rather than my clutter.
Anyone who works with Melody, listens to her ideas, and implements them, will have a much better peace of mind in their life. She’s not only amazing at what she does, but a wonderful, kind, caring person. (Thank you, Melody!) Next, I’m looking forward to decorating my bare office walls with paint, artwork and window treatments. I have the paint all ready. It’s just a matter of finding a good weekend to get started…

Melody took my topsy-turvy approach to scheduling and organizing, refining it into a polished system.
Before having my Productivity Boosters Session with Melody, I was a hot mess. Being a fairly new entrepreneur, I had a tendency to overbook people, events and sessions all over the place, which was making me feel a bit scattered and overwhelmed. You know, I was at the point where opening my inbox was a bit frightening, because I knew it only meant more bizarre scheduling. And, in my field of holistic health, this is the last type of energy I need to have. So, I knew something needed to be done, but what?!
During my Skype session, Melody took my topsy-turvy approach to scheduling and organizing, refining it into a polished system. Speaking with her calmed me for she brought me back to the basics. She handed me over a work-week schedule that was not overwhelming yet highly productive, she simplified my way of archiving emails, and she even helped me come up with a better system for all of those business cards I have collected from networking events! The funny thing here is, is that I had prided myself with the systems that I had created for the entities listed above, up until the point that my business really started taking off. Melody is a GIFT for the entrepreneur whose business is beginning to SOAR!
There is something so grounding about Melody. Perhaps, it is that she makes being attuned to fine details look so easy and graceful! From my session with her, I have already seen HUGE results. I have structured my week differently, and boy do I feel less stressed. I am much more selective with interactions made at networking events. And, my favorite part is that from my conversation with Melody, I realized how much peace of mind I receive from planning ahead! Recently, I took time to structure out the whole next month, with room for life (of course), and I feel so much more at ease. Which, as we all know as entrepreneurs, means more business, larger income, and most importantly, an increase in our ability to effectively live our life purpose and serve the planet.

I’ve cleared up physical, mental and emotional space and have more time to invest in my family and in my business.
Clutter: this has always been standing in the way. Always showing up so things are hard to find, or giving me an excuse to procrastinate. As I made the decision to set up my own business, I knew a few cluttering habits had to go. As they say: “Ask and it will be given,” and so Melody showed up in my life.
My favorite accomplishments: First, everything has to have a home. I love that. If you know where things go, even clutter is easier to deal with. And I love my Personal Morning Ritual: My “Me First” time…that’s where the energy and spirit for the day gets defined.
Now, the physical clutter and the mental clutter have a home (plus a time to get there, even if they get sidetracked). The housework flows much easier and faster, I can point clearly to someone else where things are or should be, and I’ve cleared up physical, mental and emotional space. I have more time to invest in my family and in my business.
If you are considering investing in Melody’s expertise, do. You deserve to make things easier on you!

I took a leap of faith and THANK HEAVENS I did!
Having worked one-on-one with Melody before worked off the charts and I loved it.
Previously, she came in open, non-judgmental and really created a system totally around me, not fitting me into some preconceived ideas. Her help corralling my paper clutter was the best thing I did for myself that year. I thank Melody again for being such a positive, life changing force for us.
Now, even I couldn’t figure out…”How could I possibly just work virtually with her?”
But, trusting from my incredible experiences working with her before, I took a leap of faith and THANK HEAVENS I did! Once again, Melody has found an efficient, productive and fun way for me to make consistent, organized progress on my tasks.

Not only am I more productive now, but my stress levels have decreased significantly!
In spite of good intentions, and repeated attempts to organize my filing systems, my computer files were a mess! I wasted a ridiculous amount of time looking for important information, but I just struggled along, because I thought I was too busy to take on the enormous task of reorganizing my files… again.
Working with Melody changed all that, and I was amazed how quickly! Melody helped me to access my “natural systems”, and create a simple, logical and functional system in a matter of hours instead of the days and weeks I imagined. Even better, my new system seems to be standing the test of time!
Not only am I more productive now, but my stress level has decreased significantly! If you want a productivity booster shot, then work with Melody.

I’m kind of addicted now to looking around at things and asking myself if they serve me anymore, and if not, letting go to create more space and energy.
I can’t believe how much you have influenced my whole life!
After working with you, my tiny corner home office not only looks amazing, but functions very well. I now know I would have never figured out how to do it on my own. Besides, it was waaay more fun doing it with your support, motivation, and guidance!
It has motivated me to clean out all of my closets and figure out how to put an end to clutter in other areas of my home. I’m kind of addicted now to looking around at things and asking myself if they serve me anymore, and if not, letting go to create more space and energy.
And instead of being cheap, I’m making small investments on simple things for organizing that make a BIG difference!
It’s a whole new mindset, and lady you’re responsible!! Thank YOU!!!!

Thanks to her support, my office received a fresh coat of paint and brand new carpet!
I started re-doing my office early this year and needed some help to keep me motivated and moving forward with the project, as well as some ideas on how to organize the room and make everything look nice while being easy to use. Melody gave me both!”
She gave me the support and accountability I needed to get things done and had some great ideas on how to set things up that would work for me. Thanks to her support, my office received a fresh coat of paint, brand new carpet, and is far better organized than ever before!
I love how Melody would send me links for ideas for different types of shelves, bookcases, and other furniture or tools to help me decide what I wanted to use in my office. I certainly wouldn’t have taken the time to go look for those ideas myself, and it was so great to have her suggest things.

I love opening my closet and seeing all my things organized. My closet is part of my biz!
You give INCREDIBLE suggestions that are easy to follow and implement. The direction is clear and the product links in your email are BRILLIANT!
I have to say, the support prompted me to throw out 3 bags of clothes, a piece of storage that I had been meaning to toss for 3 years and now I love opening my closet and seeing all my things organized.
It is apparent that you are a total PRO! THANK U!!

I’ve accomplished more today than I normally would due to the organization of my office and electronic filing system.
I used to have a hill of paperwork on my desk when we first began our sessions.
Due to the fast pace demands of my job, my productivity was very bad and work kept ‘piling up’ on my desk. I was only putting out fires and other work was being delayed.
When someone requests information I can easily locate the information quickly, whether it is electronic or within my filing system — and stay mentally focused on the task I am working on, then continue on with other tasks.
It sure was nice coming back to a clean and organized office. I’ve accomplished more today than I normally would due to the organization of my office and electronic filing system.
And I have had lots of compliments on how nice my office looks.
Thanks, Melody. This is a major bonus for me because I do not have to live in my office so much. Now my files, both electronic and hard copy, are well organized and at my fingertips.

It gets done and I feel relieved…happy…like I can move on. I am a lifetime learner. Streamlining keeps me clear and focused.
From start to finish, you are there. You never let me lose my way.
It gets done and I feel relieved…happy…like I can move on.
People I know now don’t believe me when I tell them how much stuff I used to have! I am a lifetime learner and invest time, energy and money to expand my life. Streamlining keeps me clear and focused. When I’m shopping I always think of what you once told me, “Before you buy something and bring it into your home, imagine a year down the road and ask yourself if it is important enough that you’ll be using it in a year. If not, think twice about before purchasing it.”
I still remember when you started your business years ago. I probably owe you credit for at least half of my sanity & moving forward to more SUCCESSES!

With her help I was able to declutter and organize my surroundings quickly and free of stress. Melody showed me how to organize and, more importantly, how to stay organized.
Stuff here, stuff there, stuff everywhere. UGH! That is how I felt until I met Melody Granger.
I function better when my environment is calm and serene. Who doesn’t? But my surroundings had become cluttered and I felt as though I was going in circles trying to get things straight by myself.
I went online and found Melody along with several other organizers. I chose Melody not only because she was prompt in responding, but also because her website was the most informative and professional.
Melody was a godsend. With her help I was able to declutter and organize my surroundings quickly and free of stress. Melody showed me how to organize and more importantly how to stay organized.
Working with Melody was a delight. She was able to take what I considered an awful task and make it easy.

Now what I need is nicely tucked away in one drawer of a lateral file cabinet. In the event of an emergency, someone else can easily find the necessary information…and…I now have a place in my “office” to SAVE THE DATE!!!!
Previously, I thought I had to keep EVERYTHING! FOREVER! Years of paperwork was piled and stuffed into boxes and bins until they filled what was supposed to be the guest room/office. I couldn’t find what I needed and felt too overwhelmed to figure out how to tackle the chaos. I needed some serious help!!
I was discouraged to find that there were no professional organizers in my area and felt doomed to either live in clutter forever or pay a ridiculously high fee to have someone travel to me. Then I found your site! I was ecstatic to discover your coaching service AND tons of useful information to help me!
I made huge accomplishments, with your help. I cleared out and rearranged items in my gift/seasonal closet and in the entire bedroom. Your suggestions have made my filing system easily accessible. Now what I need is nicely tucked away in one drawer of a lateral file cabinet. In the event of an emergency, someone else can easily find the necessary information…and…I now have a place in my “office” to SAVE THE DATE!!!!
Working with you has been an absolute pleasure! You never made me feel that I was being judged or doing something wrong, but always celebrated even the smallest bits of progress and kept me encouraged to continue. You have an amazing ability to help people find a more productive way to do things, in a manner tailored to their style and personality.
I guess we all need a little pat on the back when we’ve worked hard, and maybe that’s why I never “Got It Done” completely…no one EXPECTED me to, or held me ACCOUNTABLE to finish it. Thanks for believing in me and for all you’ve helped me achieve. Working with you is the best thing I’ve done for myself in a very long time!
Mary Pujol, Bunkie, LouisianaMary, You are very welcome. I never doubted you. Melody
I was so grateful to have had her in my life! She taught me so much more than just decluttering and organizing.
I thought I could organize my place on my own…I’ve been thinking that for the last 5 years!! I finally decided that enough was enough and that I needed someone who could coach me through it. I want to get the year started off right and by that I mean that I don’t want to worry anymore about having to organize this or that…I want to do more of the things that I want to do for fun, like read, study (yes, studying is fun for me ), take LONG walks, catch up with friends, etc.
When I read Melody’s blog, I just felt that she would get me and that she wouldn’t judge me and I KNEW someone with that much passion for organizing could definitely whip me into shape.
My sessions with Melody were so easy. She really gets me to a relaxed place with her voice. She’s what I would call a “non-anxious presence” in therapist’s lingo She slowed me down and I didn’t feel overwhelmed at all! It’s almost hypnotizing because I continued to feel relaxed even after we hung up!
While I was sad to be ending my private coaching sessions with Melody, I was so grateful to have had her in my life! She taught me so much more than just de-cluttering and organizing. Many of the things that she said I was actually able to apply to my personal life and work. I find myself repeating “a little at a time” like Melody would say while I’m at work or when I have to put things away, and, all of a sudden, “a little at a time” usually helps finish the job faster without even trying that hard!
Melody is just so supportive and empowering and knows what she’s talking about!! I know it sounds like she paid me to write this but, seriously, she did – just kidding. I can’t say enough good things about her, but be prepared to put in some work and meet her halfway. She’ll support you with ideas, thinking things thoroughly, sending follow up emails to check in and she gets to know you so well that she’ll even recommend fun items that you could like (and she’s spot on!) Melody was not only my professional organizer, she was my friend and my cheerleader. Thank you, Melody!!

I swear, just being “around” you makes me more organized! No Joke.
Melody…I never really thought of working with a professional organizer before, but I’ve learned tons from your videos and blog posts. I swear, just being “around” you makes me more organized! You wouldn’t believe how much difference it’s made to my closets. No joke.
In fact, I was looking at my spic and span bathroom counter top today and thinking proudly, I should send a picture to Melody and show her how organized she’s helped me become! (my bathroom counter is notorious for miscellaneous makeup and jewelry scattered everywhere)

After each session I’ve felt a great sense of accomplishment. Then, at some point, the cumulative effect of all the sessions become evident.
You make a real effort to understand my “messiness” and have helped me come up with solutions that work for me.
The effect is great both short and long term.
