Let's do a little exercise, shall we?
You close your eyes for just a moment and imagine...
You wake up in your cozy bed. You arise before your children and take a look around your bedroom. The clothes are all neatly put away, there's no clutter or mess. The room feels like your own personal sanctuary.
You move swiftly downstairs for a cup of coffee. The kitchen looks as clean as it did last night. You open the cabinets and notice once again how organized everything is. There is an ease and flow to finding everything you're looking for. You sit at the table and drink in the morning sun as you sip from your favorite mug.
You look over the calendar for the day and week ahead and notice how detailed it is. Every meeting and appointment for your family is listed and organized and you feel calm knowing that your about to have another productive day ahead of you.
Dinner for tonight? You know exactly what it will be. It's planned, it's prepped and ready whenever you are.
The spaces around you feel clean and inviting. You know where everything is and are able to keep it that way every day. You're proud of the home and life you've created and open it gladly to friends and family.
But then you open your eyes and reality is once again staring you in the face and screaming in your ear.
Your toddler is now sitting on your chest in bed, yelling for oatmeal and demanding chocolate milk. Your oldest wakes up reluctantly 20 minutes before its time to leave for school and frantically gathers his homework and stuffs the crumpled mess into his backpack. You haven't changed your shirt in two days. The toy situation in the house is what some would call apocalyptic in nature and the cabinets are lined with stale crackers and Cheerio remnants.
You know one of the kids has a dentist appointment this week, but which one, and when? You look through the stack of papers lining your kitchen counter to no avail and realize you haven't updated the family calendar in 2 months. You scramble to get out the door, frantically trying to find 2 kids shoes that match each other and dig through your purse to find lunch money.
You gaze around your home office, once hopeful of being an oasis of creativity and profitability, now looks like an industrial fan was turned on in the middle of the room. You feel like each day is a game of catch up and you can't seem to get ahead. You're waiting for someone to help, for someone to save you from this disorganization and chaos and show you exactly where to begin.
Because it doesn't have to be this hard.
Motherhood doesn't have to look like this.
You became a mom to share love and happiness with your children. Somewhere along the line, the disorganization took over and became the norm. Somewhere along the way, you lost the focus and productivity to keep moving forward instead of remaining on the hamster wheel. You want things to change, but you don't know where to start.
That's where I can help
I'm Kendra and I am your mom coach and home management strategist . I give moms the skills they need to keep the home they desire, make the schedule they want and manage their time effectively.
I help motivated (and exhausted) moms, from those that stay at home to raise their kids to those that are raising a business to those hustling outside the house, build thriving homes through modern homemaking and home management skills. From cleaning and organizing, to time management and productivity, to meal planning and self care, I show you the momming 101 skills needed to enjoy being a mother, every day.
In short, I'm dishin' out homemakerish help for the reluctant homemaker.
As a mom and business owner, I know exactly how stressful it is to juggle the many tasks of motherhood. To try to keep all of the balls in the air without dropping one, and making it look effortless. Its exhausting.
For the last 10 years, I have owned and operated a successful professional cleaning and organizing business focused on helping families get back their time by living cleaner, more organized lives.
While I was building my business, I was building a family and learning how to keep it all running without the wheels falling off and crashing into a deep ditch on the side of Bad Mom Boulevard.
Organization is all about learning and implementing strategies and systems that can be replicated easily and efficiently day in and day out. From my decade of experience working with clients, I've designed a goody bag full of solutions.
You don't have to be born with the homemaking "gene" to live this kind of lifestyle. It can be learned and I can teach it.
Although I have always had a desire to keep things orderly, I had to learn the techniques that worked best for keeping things orderly, for keeping the clutter out of my home and my head, and what systems work best to accomplish that.
Because when your home is in order, you feel better. When you feel better, you do better. When you do better, well, you feel better again. It's a delicious cycle perpetuated by you.
See, homemaking and home management isn't about making your home look like a Martha Stewart magazine. Hell, I wonder if Martha Stewart's house even looks like that. It's about making your space feel good and helping create a stress-free life for you. That's it. You don't even need an apron, although why ruin your cute pair of yoga pants?
When you work with me, you learn how to set goals, make a home and enjoy motherhood, because it should be fun, remember?
