Hey, I’m Diane (middle name Ruth)! And I like to keep things simple, so this will be short but sweet.
Origin: I have been organizing other people’s stuff since middle school. My best friend was my first unofficial (back in middle school) and official (after having her baby) client! I created Ruth’s Simple Organizing Solutions because I was over working 40+ hours a week doing something I used to like and no longer enjoy. So I stepped out of my comfort zone on several levels and launched my professional organizing business that I run primarily online.
My why! Mothering children and being a wife is a joy I didn’t even know I wanted when I was growing up. And never did I think I would be the girl trying to stay home with her kids. But after working night shift for over 7 years, I have learned that taking care of them or trying to spend time with them while walking around like a zombie, is something I am no longer willing to do.
Who I help: I know first hand how hard it is to work from home when your office resides in the common areas of your house. When I found out about all of the other women out here on the web doing what they love, and building businesses that enable them to take care of their families in the way they want, I knew I wanted to be an integral part of this women entrepreneur ecosystem.
So I saw no better way to pour my love for organizing + obsession with office spaces into this community of moms that are working from home, then to support them virtually in creating clutter free, less overwhelming, and inspiring workspaces that help them do the work and live the life they love.
