The Golden Timer!  What a concept!   It sounded so hokie at first, but I was soon eating my words. The whole process with a Golden Timer took away the overwhelming feeling oftrying to organize my office, or my home for that matter. It helped me take bite-size pieces out of the whole ordeal of purging. Thank you Jeanette for helping me de-stress my life, 10 to 30 minutes at a time.



Jeannette  worked  with me years ago and I can honestly say her efficiency and organizational systems helped me organize my business, my tasks, my mind and my life! The gift of working with her is still giving back today as I continue to be organized and enriched by the steps and methods she taught me years ago. Jeanette's gift for organizing is a gift that keeps giving back and is a must for peace of mind in a busy entrepreneurial lifestyle.

Jeannette  became my hero when she introduced me to the Three Basket system.  While this concept is so simple, it really helped me to organize the numerous piecesof paper coming into my home office. With multiple lines of business, volunteer and personal responsibilities, I process a lot of information on a monthly basis.  Now on my admin day, at a quick glance, I can see what needs to be handled this week, what is pending and what needs to be filed.  Even my family knows if they want me to do something for them - it goes in the INBOX. Simple, easy steps but they make all the difference when it comes to maintaining an efficient and organized workspace.

Jeannette helped me to organize my condominium apartment in 2014. At that time I was in the midst of separation and divorce and my mood and energy was very low .I had no mental energy to keep my space organized and functional and my apartment  was a total mess. I was ashamed to bring anyone to my place and didn't have proper space to eat, cook and rest and relax. With her great system and through a process Jeannette not only helped me to reduce my paper mess and organize my space but also how to keep it organized. It had a significant impact on my mental and physical health. Also as a result of having a more organized, spacious and beautiful space I was able to bring in a tenant and increase my income. Thank you Jeannette for all your help, you are great!

To Whom It May Concern:

Presenter Jeannette Hay of Get Me Organized! did a presentation on the importance of time management and organization to students from Grade 6, 7and 8 at St. Albert Elementary School in Scarborough, ON

For 90 minutes she gave her entertaining and educational presentation to over 100 people. She presented in a thorough and entertaining manner, and had the students as well as staff members all very impressed and well informed.  She also took the time to return with the students to their classrooms and apply what she had spoken to them about. They enthusiastically uncluttered their desks and filled out the feedback forms. Eighty nine percent reported they considered her a good speaker and all the teachers agreed with this and would be happy to have her return again.

We feel very fortunate to have had Jeannette speak to us.  She was very friendly and answered all of our questions expertly. The students all now understand how improved organization and time management can help them in their school work and moving forward, both in their personal and future professional lives.

I strongly recommend Jeannette’s presentation to any school that would like to improve their students work ability and gain time management skills.

CEO Assistance
When I could no longer move forward I called Jeannette  which in itself yielded instant relief. A professional organizer, she practices what she teaches and starts first by uncluttering her client's minds so that one may breathe again.

Once she has her client breathing then, they can start to see the future again. When you can see the challenge clearly, then you can create a solution. By having a solution or a strategy to concentrate on, focus follows. With focus comes results and the rest is easy....

Office administration assistance

I have been working with Jeannette for quite a while now on getting caught up with my backlogged taxes and other filing needs.

She has been immensely helpful in plowing through the confusion in the files and boxes of receipts and sorting everything out, getting the receipts categorized and tabulated and generally helping me get the huge amounts of filing put together for the accountant as well as general cleaning up and organizing of the day to day office paperwork.

 I would not have been able to do this by myself and Jeannette has been a huge help to me in getting the office sorted out and running effectively.

Party Planning - Annual Garden Party
Dear Jeannette,

Thank you for organizing our Annual Garden Party.
Many of our guests said this was the best party they'd ever attended. Even I as the hostess enjoyed it - a rare event for any hostess to actually have a good time at her own party.

I attribute these wonderful results to your meticulous planning of every detail of the day. From the gorgeous decorations and centerpieces to the scrumptious meal created by your caterer - everything was perfect.

Thank you also for the excellent photos which I've passes on to our guests. This is a wonderful record of the day and relieve me from being hostess and photographer which in the past always resulted in one or both duties suffering.

Considering many of our guests are also our clients - this was an important promotional event. This pleasant day will leave a lasting impression sure to result in future business.

In closing Jeannette  - you are an absolute pleasure to work with.
Your calming influence and bright personality made the planning of our party a lot of fun.

I'll be glad to recommend you to anyone looking for a flawless event.

Residential Office
Jeannette Hay helped to Get Me Organized!
She is a true professional with a unique approach to building the client relationship. I normally don't like filling out paper work but I appreciated the questionnaires and insights she sent prior to our first work day. They helped me focus on specific organization goals in relation to my lifestyle. This was essential because the organization project I had was complex and if we hadn't set the short and long term goals, I would have become frustrated in between.

She has a structured, reassuring approach with an exceptionally positive attitude towards letting go of all the clutter.
Jeannette works with vision to create space. She really is a time and space artist.

Thank you, Tanya Chernova

You would be so proud of me!  My sub-basement is done!

My summer goals are 90% complete. 

Thanks so much you taught me how to get unstuck!  No more overwhelming feelings of panic. Enjoy the rest of the summer.

Pam Tishler, Teacher

Knowing that my paper work and boxes of hoarded, “I’ll read that one day” information were blocking mefrom moving forward with freeing up my time, I came to the wise conclusion that I was willing to pay someone to help me get through it all. Through a series of“life’s like that” serendipitous circumstances, my path crossed with that of Jeannette Hay, organizer extraordinaire. Since my goal was to set up processes by which I make all things efficient, thereby freeing up more time in my working day to then do my volunteer work, an important part of my balanced existence, Jeannette got me going on the right path. As quoted by AlvinToffler, “…you’ve got to think about the big things while you’re doing small things, so that all the small things go in the right direction”.

Jeannette Hay has helped me to set up the processes for the small things, so that I will havefree time to think about those big things.

Thank you, Jeannette,and all the best with your mentorship of the other organizers in the region inyour capacity as Chair of the Toronto Chapter of the Professional Organizers in Canada network.

General assistance

This letter is a referral for Jeannette Hay.

I recently had a period of extreme activity coming towards me and in my infinite wisdom decided to call in the troops.  

Jeannette assisted for 3 weeks in many aspects of my daily activities.  This letter will focus on the work she did with me on the launch of a music CD which was a huge success.  Although I have to incorporate all she did it is difficult because she could do everything and this service was so invaluable.

First of all Jeannette sat with me and found out what help was needed and determined which areas were slowing me down and backing up.
She then proceeded to take some time and re-organize my work area and supplies so all was at hand in an organized way so I could move quickly about my work.

Next she found out what needed to be done that she could take over and just handled.
I was in the process of contacting a ton of media, major and local.  Although Major Media took much follow up to get done, local media was a long list.

She took over the local media, made calls sent e-mails and got several articles printed while I was able to focus on my calls.  I am certain that without her assistance I would have not only been able to get so much media but would have been so stressed in the process.

But what follows next is what saved my life. In between doing the office work with me she would also see that meals were made and healthy, keeping myself and my team on task and in shape. 
She also found the time to go into my house and organize my kitchen, pantry, bathroom, porch and dining room so that the time I spent there was as effective as could be. Here is the kicker. She also helped handle my dogs, cat and get this, horses!  She brought the horses in and out of the field, fed them and took care of them in general.  
She also skipped out to the store to get anything that was needed.

I would say what she did for that intense period of time was assist me in any way needed and thought ahead for me when I was running behind. As a result of all this I came through this period with amazing results, healthy and not only caught up in all areas but better organized which carries through until today.

I would say Jeannette is an executive assistant, personal assistant, able to assess and organize an area, animal manager and stable manager to boot!  To say she can do anything still limits her.  I have in the past seen her put on street festivals, dinners, as well as a multitude of varied events.  She also bakes and decorates amazingly beautiful cakes, paints and can do murals.  I frankly have not yet seen something she cannot do.

So if you need assistance to get organized, to get through a super busy time. Your health and family will thank you for getting Jeannette in to get you through with flying colours

I am definitely, as you can see, giving Jeannette a glowing recommendation and will, I'm sure, have opportunities for her to come to the rescue again.

Party Planning and execution

Thank you Jeannette for making my planning and celebration day simple and worry-less. I was very relieved to know that I could share my headaches with someone. Most importantly I was pleased to have your "positive energy".

I want to thank you for allowing me to sit for the first time and enjoy my company rather than working every time I have a party. I wouldn't hesitate asking for your service the next time I want to have a special celebration.

Thanks again.
