Hi! I’m Tiffany, the blogger and obsessive organizer behind Calyx Organizing.

I used to think I had excellent organization and time management skills….

Until I got married, had kids, and started working at home!

Building a business at home alongside managing a household and raising a family tested ALL my skills, especially time management and organization (and patience when my kiddos were younger…and even sometimes when they were teens).

My office was doing double, triple, and quadruple duty as I attempted to manage the many moving pieces related to my family, home, and business. I felt like I had no time. I was frazzled and harried, and I wasn’t doing anything well, not as a wife, a mom, a home manager, or a business owner.

I was so stressed and overwhelmed that I quit before my business was even off the ground.

But a year later that restlessness to build something of my own returned. I tried again, only to fail AGAIN.

I quit so many times that I’ve lost count.

But as my oldest daughter started her college search, we realized that we were woefully unprepared to handle the financial burden of her higher education. I HAD to make a go of a business that I could run at home or get an outside job and sacrifice being home when my kids got out of school, were sick, or had a day off.

I refused to entertain that second option. I wanted to keep my family priority ONE.

To help ensure success this time around, I began the painful process of analyzing my previous failures. I realized that I needed to relearn the organization and time management skills I possessed before marriage, kids, and chaos reigned.

I read, studied, implemented, tested, and tweaked different organization and time management skills and techniques. And as my skills slowly grew, so did my business. The income from my fledgling business helped pay for my daughter’s college education and my son’s, and now it’s helping to pay for my youngest daughter’s.

I’m excited to share with you the tips, tricks, and techniques I’ve learned, so that you can put your family first, contribute to your family’s financial goals, and realize your dreams of owning a successful business!
