Today I speak directly to your conscience. I do not propose that we roll over or surrender our positions on the important issues of the day. I do not imply that the ideological differences between us are not worthy of earnest deliberation and purposeful resolve. Nor do I suggest that this election should not provide political transparency and vigorous debate. On the contrary, we are at a crossroads. But we must remember to serve our families and our communities with distinction and integrity – with humanity, humility, tolerance, and compromise. We are not a nation of one or another – we are all in this together, uniquely worthy of mutual respect, compassion, opportunity, and safety.
I live in one of the healthiest places in America, and it’s not easy. Professional, semi-pro, and recreationally competitive athletes move here to live, work, and train at altitude. And they’re everywhere, racing up and down actual mountains with their toned abs, burly biceps, and well-sculpted glutes. These people are not just fit – they’re statuesque. And it’s more than just a little intimidating to stand next to them. Read this quick article to find out why I’m not going to let my ‘Dad Bod’ get me down — and why you shouldn’t either!

Here’s something you might not expect from a professional organizer — a book about LOVE. And not just any love — EPIC love!
It all started at the end of last year… A ton of clients kept calling me to help them declutter and get organized. But after working with me for awhile, they were all saying the same thing: Clutter wasn’t their only problem — their relationships were struggling, too. Clutter and feeling disorganized was just a small part of the bigger picture. Check it out to hear Jeet share her foreword — her audio is ready NOW.

If your love life isn’t living up to your expectations, consider a closer look at your environment. Clutter is a metaphor. When our spaces are a cluttered mess, it adds stress to any relationship. Simplifying our stuff and organizing our lives doesn’t just make life more convenient, it makes the spaces we inhabit more inspiring. These are my six steps to declutter your way to epic love, great sex and relationships that last.
In the New York Times bestseller, Crucial Conversations, it is said that respect is like air. When it’s there, you don’t even notice. Remove it and it’s all you can think about. You know this to be true. When we trust those around us to be kind, respectful, sincere, and forthcoming in a way that strengthens relationships – virtually anything can be discussed openly in relative safety. Respect is not based on the presumption of agreement – quite the contrary. Respect exists when ideas are thoughtfully communicated with the intent of preserving the integrity of the relationship. The outcome of the exchange is largely immaterial, so long as everyone at the table works to maintain authenticity and reverence for one another.
