A little organizational assistance

For more than 20 years, Lisa Snodgrass traveled the country, working as a professional stage manager in live theatre.

Throughout her travels, Snodgrass has had to pack up and move on more than one occasion; so much so that it became second nature.

She recently returned back to the Ohio Valley and, taking her experiences and gained skills into account, started of a unique business to assist the citizens of the Ohio Valley with a whole litany or organizational challenges.

“I’ve been on the road for a very long time,” Snodgrass said.

“You learn how to pack a truck, pack things. I get in and get out quickly and efficiently.”

Snodgrass recently began operating Just 4 You Organizing, an lending a helping hand to both residential and commercial customers alike.

Just 4 You Organizing offers multiple services, including:

  • Personalized home organization
  • Time management assistance
  • Office organization assistance
  • Home staging
  • Packing assistance for a less stressful move
  • Event planning and management.

“I relocated back home and was looking for something to do with the creative side of my mind, utilizing my multi-tasking and organizational skills,” Snodgrass said. “I did some research and there is really no one in the immediate area offering this type of service.”

Competition may be slim, but so is the local public’s familiarity with the types of services Snodgrass offers, as well as their benefits.

So far, word of mouth has been Just 4 You’s best friend.

But those who’ve utilized Snodgrass’ talents have come away impressed, offering their praises and passing the words to their friends and families.

When speaking of organizing and simplifying a home, some people don’t even know they need help while others know help is needed, but aren’t sure where to start.

“Some people will ask ‘Why do I need to pay you to do my closet,'” Snodgrass said with a slight chuckle.

There is a difference between doing spring cleaning and actually doing a pair down, purging and getting ride of things that truly aren’t needed.

By just cleaning, within a month or two, the clutter returns and the cycle starts anew. Snodgrass wants to help you avoid that.

“As much as people can feel overburdened, a house can feel overburdened as well,” Snodgrass said.

“There is a sense of freedom that comes when you free up space and it allows other aspects of your life – the psychological, the mental, the spiritual – to improve. It goes hand in hand.”

Snodgrass is also a whiz at time management. The principles, she feels, are the same as organizing. It’s the same philosophical journey.

“But it has something that isn’t tangible … time,” Snodgrass said.

“That’s what some people can’t grasp. They need help to understand you need time to for yourself.”

Along with organizational and time management assistance, Snodgrass offers her expertise in house staging, assisting homeowners and real estate companies get a home ready for sale. She also is a capable event planner and manager.
