Pauline, can you walk us through the growth your company has seen over the years?
Thirteen years ago, I brought on Rebecca. About ten years ago, I brought on Erin and Kelly has been with us about four years now and we have grown and made a great team together. The really cool thing is, we all have different personalities.
Can you tell us more about the nature of the business?
We really like the idea of reducing, reusing, and not being a consumer so if we can help pass along some hints and some tips, that’s something I like to do.
Organizing a home is not cleaning a home. Organizing a home is purging items that you no longer want and finding homes for things so when you’re putting everything away, it has a spot.
The other thing that’s really big in what we do is the mental health side of organizing. Anyone that has a hoarding disorder, OCD, ADHD, or anxiety disorder, these do affect our space but if our space is organized and cleared, we can be mentally cleared.
How has your experience been doing business in Middlesex County?
Middlesex is growing exponentially. We’ve got recycling programs, we’ve got community organizations that contact us daily asking for assistance in providing items to those in unfortunate situations. Knowing that they’re going to somebody who needs them and will be grateful for them, that is the icing on the cake.
There’s lots of people that need help and we’re there to help them. – Pauline Hoffman, CPO Just In Time Solutions
