Lifestyle Management Update
I created this blog for The Britting Group to share things I've come to know or believe during my adventures in Lifestyle Management. So far, I've discussed my beliefs around quality of life, time restoration, spiritual practices, and the benefits of simplifying your life. Every couple weeks, though, I want to discuss what we're up to, and what the day to day looks like.
Lots of people wonder what Lifestyle Management is, and what it entails. Lifestyle Management is personalized project management for busy individuals. I tackle my client's projects, big and small, to improve their lives and restore their time to do what they love.
In the last two weeks:
- Our client was a brand new family, having adopted their son just a few short months ago. They were in the full swing of a huge life transition and embracing every second of their new adventure as parents. During our initial consult, our new mama expressed to me that it was her son's closet that was driving her crazy. It had become a landing area for things baby and pre-baby and she was ready to do an overhaul. After taking some measurements and discussing our vision, I prepared an Amazon list for her to review and purchase before my next visit. In about 2.5 hours of decluttering, organizing, and installing I was able to transform baby's closet into a fully functional space, ready for a growing boy. It was such a pleasure to be a part of their new journey as a family- and to restore some serenity to a busy family.
- Our next client is a long term client, family of 5. They are some of the busiest people I know (both the kiddos and the parents) and I am always happy to provide some solutions in any area I can, to ultimately give them back some time to spend together. A lifestyle manager is a jack of all trades, and the Dad of our busy family reached out to me for a specific request that I was all too happy to assist with. He and his buddies are travelling to a Notre Dame football game in September, and needed some help finding adequate transportation- HELLO PARTY BUS! He relayed all the specifics: dates, times, locations, necessities, etc. and I took it from there. I reached out to get quotes, found the best companies, and took care of all the reservations and booking details. We took all the time and hassle that comes along with planning a trip like this away from our client, and left him to handle only the excitement and celebration. Taking the stress and leaving the good stuff is one of my favorite parts of the job.
- Our last featured client is a single mama of 3. Her kiddos are older, and she is in the middle of purchasing her teenagers cars, and prepping for buying a home. Busy is an understatement. She reached out to me to take a look at some areas in her home and work alongside her to get things back in order. We sat down, took a look at the tasks at hand, determined the ideal package for her needs- and got to work. We started in her closet, making a huge impact right away- and moved to her bathroom, dressers, laundry room, and office space. In a short time everything in her home was beginning to have a place it belonged, and the difference was pretty incredible. She was thrilled and feeling so much more confident to begin her next chapter on the right foot. Next will be her middle school daughters room. After that? Helping our busy mama get her 3rd grade classroom ready for the school year.
I love my job. How lucky am I?
I get to share some of the most intimate moments with families, and hear their needs- and make them happen. All the babies, and the moves, and the trips make my weeks so exciting and full of joy. Watching my clients have their lives restored to a little bit more sanity, and thereby have a little bit more fun is why I do what I do-- and I wouldn't have it any other way.
