For Mandy Beemer, owner of local business, The Organizer, she is not only the queen of organization but also focuses on mindset, habit building, and improving her clients' skills.
When she started her business in September of last year, after months of living through the pandemic and being told who was and wasn't essential, Beemer was considered an essential worker while working her job as a local industrial parts distributor.
"To me, this was crazy because the only people I was actually essential to were the shareholders of the corporation I worked for," she shares. "I wanted to redefine "essential" in my mind and transform my career into something that I find to be essential, which is to focus on wellness, bringing serenity and peace of mind to others that are struggling in ways that I used to. I want to make a real difference in people's lives."
Offering various services for her community, her most popular services are her two transformation packages.
"I offer a six-week package and a ten-week package. My transformation packages not only focus on a handful of key spaces in the home and their physical state, but they also include some coaching, habit-building exercises and mindset shift work to ensure that my clients have the skills and mental clarity needed to ensure long-term results," she explains.
"Sure, I can organize pretty much any space, but the mindset shifts, setting boundaries, expectations, and habits, that's where the lasting change happens. I do offer one-time jobs, with half-day or full-day options."
Before starting her own business, Beemer had several random jobs while still learning who she was and what she enjoyed.
"From McDonald's to retail, being a disc jockey to being a housekeeper, I learned the ins and outs of several entry-level positions in many different industries. I graduated from Human Resource Management in 2011 and have been working in the industrial/construction supply industry for the past ten years," she says.
"I started in this industry after graduation as a delivery driver, working my way through the sales and operations positions in a couple of different companies before starting The Organizer. I am currently still working in distribution part-time for a company located in Oldcastle while building my organizing business on the side. Because of this experience, I have developed a skill set that will help me with the business management side of being an entrepreneur. Add that to my passion for organizing and creating spaces full of structure and serenity, and here we are!"
Describing herself as driven, passionate, and enthusiastic, Beemer shares what empowers her daily: her son, her family, and their future.
