Testimonials

My favorite organizing jobs are those where I coordinate a team of people who have a seemingly impossible job to do, with an apparently unreachable deadline. Here is a detailed testimonial.

Jeannette Balleza Collins says:

Patricia took on the daunting task of helping Northwest Arkansas Entrepreneurship Alliance pack up and transfer the contents of The Iceberg coworking facility, which spanned over 5,000SF in downtown Fayetteville. She organized a large group of volunteers over the course of multiple days to sort, clean, organize, pack and label everything from office supplies, appliances and books to furniture, artwork and electronics for transfer and storage.

Patricia’s energy and enthusiasm for the undertaking never lagged in the slightest, even on the longest of days, and she greeted everyone and every new challenge with positivity and delight. She provided wonderful suggestions for dividing and conquering what could have turned easily into a very overwhelming job, and she helped the board meet deadlines without stress.

She was very meticulous about returning items to rightful owners, carefully packaging fragile objects and ensuring all of the volunteers were having fun yet observing necessary safety measures. She even enlisted extra help to do more specialized work, such as breaking down larger pieces of furniture and removing mounted equipment from the walls.

Additionally, Patricia provided diligent followup on any outstanding items to make sure the job was 100% complete and that no loose ends were left unaddressed. She was well prepared and doggedly determined to deliver quality work, and the volunteers provided positive feedback on her coordination skills.

Patricia has helped me organize my house and she is patient, efficient and understanding. When you sort through a lot of old belongings, it can be hard to let go and Patricia understands that. She brings her compassion to the job while at the same encouraging you to let go of things that no longer serve you in a positive way. She is very hard working and she understands how overwhelming going through old things can be. She is not afraid to tackle jobs big or small and she is committed to finishing what she starts. I recommend Patricia to anyone who would like some help organizing their belongings! Denise, Fayetteville

I wish you could be duplicated, so you could live near my needy children. Without a doubt, I know as their neighbor, you would humbly and skillfully keep them motivated to have a sweet inviting home. Also, I know they would respond to your encouragement to use their home for hospitality and for honoring their Savior. I am extremely grateful to have been on a week long organizing team with you. We became friends and close “sisters”. I admire your giftedness and your passion to do all to please the residents and to please our Savior.”

“ I have had the pleasure of working with Patricia several times.
This year I wanted to revamp my home business office for the upcoming year 2011.
I had several ideas about my workspace that I shared with her.
She had suggestions on revamping my home business office supply closet.
She patiently revised the plan for me as we worked together.
I had materials ready to set up a desk top filing system,
Patricia suggested I write down topics on strips of paper so that I could organize them into categories.
I then arranged the topics into categories and color coded them, as that works for me.
Now, everything is at my fingertips and I can find anything I want in my closet.
I am excited to work on my projects for the new year!”

“Patricia Mikkelson worked for me in the company called Live Love Laugh. She was always a dynamic and energetic presence in making things happen, coming up with creative new ideas, coordinating many volunteers, organizing events, workshops and publicity– just to name a few of her many contributions to the success of Live Love Laugh. During that time she also helped organize and produce various Self Esteem workshops led by the now famous Jack Canfield, co-author of the Chicken Soup for the Soul book series. Patricia is a forward thinker and seems to always press for things that make it a better world for everyone.”

Your method of sorting objects into manageable categories is perfect for keeping me from obsessing on one item and going into overwhelm! Your innate sense of order is a gift that I truly admire. I highly recommend you and look forward to working with you again in the future. The cat totally approves of the de-cluttered office. He has chosen it as his favorite space to hang out.

If you need someone to help you with organization, cleaning, sorting, packing or any other detail to help improve your home/quality of living or moving experience, then I would recommend Patricia’s assistance.

Earlier this year, my family had to pack up and move somewhat unexpectedly.  My husband started his new job 2 months ahead of our move, so I was left with 2 chidren and a house to pack.  Patricia was instrumental in guaranteeing that our household was pulled together, boxes were organized, packed and labeled, and that I retained my sanity throughout the process.  Quite a burden to place on anyone, but Patricia was certainly up to the task!

Patricia was flexible, willing, professional, sympathetic, good at listening, and prepared to meet our needs.  She worked smart so I felt that my money was very well-spent.  She helped take care of details so that I could focus on things that really needed to be attended to by me.  Patricia was a great buffer in helping me avoid distraction during work hours.  She helped involve the kids, called my attention to things that needed discussion or decisions, and was just wonderful to have around.

I very much appreciate my experience with Patricia and strongly recommend her services for either one-time projects like I had or for long-term needs.

Coaching

“I appreciate Patricia more and more. Her coaching the last couple of days has reached new highs for me in giving me more choices and validating the choices I have made. ”

Rich, San Diego

“As a graduate student, I was not as mature in my scheduling and following-through as needed to complete a self-motivated research project. Patricia was able to help me find my center spiritually and as needed in my work habits. Through the weekly meeting, she helped me identify my weaknesses in my attention span and also identify my strengths. This process helped me make more progress on the project than I had been able to do on my own in the past 2 years. Thanks.”

I have known Patricia Mikkelson for more than 4 years.  Patricia first helped me after my 2nd move in a year. She helped sort and organize boxes that had been randomly placed in the garage after a cross country move.

As an independent entrepreneur, working from home, home organization and maintenance is very important to my well being. I consider her a vital part of my support system.
Patricia does not have a one size fits all organizing approach. She really listens and has helped me develop and use systems and strategies. She is flexible and meets changing needs. We have revamped my office twice. She encourages me to try out my ideas like color coding.
I have learned so much from Patricia. She helped me organized my cleaning into mini tasks, to deal with some physical challenges. She takes care of chores that are too difficult for me. Watching her clean, is seeing zen in motion.
Recently, my kitchen pantry had become jumbled. Patricia quickly looked at the situation and made space in the pantry and reorganized space in the garage.
I enjoy doing projects with Patricia. I look forward to every visit.

RECOMMENDATION FOR PATRICIA MIKKELSON from a member of the California Rare Fruit Growers:

I highly recommend Patricia Mikkelson as an organizer and very hard worker!  I am an enthusiastic gardener— but, in my back yard and garden, I had accumulated a huge amount of “deferred maintenance” tasks on my to-do list, which made going back there almost more overwhelming than enjoyable.  I’m very glad I decided to hire Patricia to tackle a number of those tasks, to help me get a fresh start!

Patricia had a wonderful system by which she worked.  First, we did a walk-through in which I pointed out and listed for her all of the areas of concern to me, in which I hoped to see major changes.  She listened carefully, then set about accomplishing the numerous goals.

Patricia worked hard to cover all the bases, and she worked efficiently, in an organized, well-thought-out manner.  She categorized items — sorted/ organized/ cleaned them— and checked with me for clarification of my wishes when there was any doubt as to what I wanted done.

My back yard and garden are now a much more pleasant place in which to work and enjoy nature, and are ready for me to move forward with the many projects which I had been wanting to accomplish— but I had felt myself getting dragged down by the many other tasks which were calling for my attention.  Thank you, Patricia, for a job very well done!”  A client in San Diego

……………………………………

Downsizing, organizing, and moving…

About two months before we needed to move from a 4300 square foot home to a 1600 square foot home, I saw Patricia’s flyer at Arsaga’s Coffee Shop.  I decided that instead of just moving a lot of our stuff into storage, I would seek her help to downsize and simplify my life so that we could really make a fresh start. I am really happy that I did, for the move and the downsizing efforts saved us money as well as made the transition to a new house with a young child so much easier than if I had done this by myself.

The very first three hour session we had was just a taste of how much progress we were going to make for the next two months. After talking about my goals with Patricia, she immediately helped me get a notebook together so that I could start getting a plan and stay focused on the daunting job ahead of us.  We also very quickly cleaned out many areas in kitchen and got a staging area identified so that not only did I feel confident that the big picture was being addressed, but the hands on work gave me reassurance that she had the ability to help me do the physical work that needed to be done.

As we progressed in the job, Patricia coached me on things that I could do in between our sessions. Having a notebook with a calendar, to do lists, and a time line helped me to stay on task with the things that needed to be done. I was much more careful with how I spent my time and felt more peaceful knowing that my thoughts of what needed to be done could be captured in this notebook.

Each time we worked together we started and ended with a prayer. I appreciated that Patricia not only was skilled in planning, de-cluttering, and getting things organized, but she also supported me in my spiritual walk with Jesus.  I was amazed at how each time we prayed, at the end of the session we could pray with gratitude about all the wonderful things that were done during our time together.

The last week before the movers came was the most intense of all.  Patricia was completely dedicated to making sure that boxes were marked so that they went to the right location and that we were completely prepared for the movers.  We had two places to take things–storage and the house. Originally we were going to make two separate moves, and were not going to downsize before we moved. But with Patricia’s support, we were able to make one move and dramatically decrease what was moved so that the money we saved more than paid Patricia’s fees.

Finally, the big day of moving arrived, and my husband and I were able to direct the movers by ourselves because of the numerous details that Patricia and I worked together to figure out ahead of time.  We were able to find all the essential items that we needed right away and spent a comfortable weekend at our new home, taking a break from all the intense activity. Then, Patricia came for a mere five hours and we unpacked 95% of the boxes and our new home was from then on easily brought into order.  She helped me find places for all the items so that I could easily find things and my whole family could feel at home in our new surroundings.

I feel grateful to Patricia for her patience in working with me because often I felt like I was stressed out because of the pressure I was under.  She helped me in so many ways so that this downsizing task could be successful.  I highly recommend her for any moving, downsizing, simplifying, organizing or de-cluttering job.  She was also great at helping to plan a project and support me in following through with it.

……………………………………………..

 I asked Patricia Mikkelson to help me organize, de clutter and simplify my home. A big job given I have a condo with a loft and have accumulated many items in the last 8 years. As a professional I have several books, papers, training materials. My home was also filled with non essentials.


Patricia’s professional approach is designed to assist the busy multi-tasker and multi talented to simplify their surroundings with intention, focus and efficiency. Her cheerful attitude, along with her extremely strong work ethnic kept me focused and grounded! She even introduced a plant based diet into my life which calmed me and also energized me. She lovingly prepared food for me to enjoy when I returned from my trip to Maui.
Under Patricia’s leadership we cleaned out and organized my closets which was where the Wealth and Prosperity section of the Bagua in a Feng Shui.

Within 2 days of activating the area with symbols to represent wealth, abundance, career growth… I received a call that invited me to 6 day trip to Maui to support a friend/ client in writing her book. The trip was magnificent AND I received another big gift…I met a lovely, spiritual, kind and dynamic man within hours of landing whom my friend introduced me to…We enjoyed each other’s company for the entire time, as I maintained my priority of supporting my friend.

I know it would not have happened without Patricia! Her enthusiasm for getting the job done coupled with her non judgemental yet effective methods made it a joy for me to work with!  I highly recommend her for simplifying your life, so you can TRULY enjoy it. Being clear and clutter free is Patricia’s specialty.

Hire her now, and you’ll be glad you did! She goes above and beyond the call of duty.
You can trust her to do an Outstanding job on your home.
Simply…Patricia is the best in this area.

The help that I  have received from Patricia Mikkelson has put new life into my business. Nobody has ever accused me of being too organized. But just one of her great ideas has already helped me tremendously.  .Also, she attended one of my music programs and gave me much practical feedback on how to enliven my programs. You will do yourself a favor to enlist her aid.

The names have been changed because these clients prefer to be anonymous…

Wow! I appreciate how Jill has given me week by week description about how me helping her and Amos get organized has changed her life. Thanks Jill–this is so encouraging to me. I know I make a difference in people’s lives, and your specific input helps me to know that these systems that I have either developed or learned really do work. Dear reader, I  think if you read this you will glean some helpful tips about organizing. I intend to write some more blogs to explain some of the terms, like “tickler file.” Here are Jill’s words:

Life in general feels more spacious. When I come home from errands, I don’t sit down until AFTER I get everything put away and it only takes a few minutes. Before, it would take the SAME few minutes to put away, but only AFTER having it hanging over my head for an hour or two or three, with a lot of “I oughta’s” etc. Now I don’t want whatever it is I brought in from the car sitting around cluttering up the space—the space in the house OR the space in my head.

And when I say to Amos, “Geez, Amos, the table is really getting to be a big mess,” it is a mess that can be picked up in two seconds, a table that Iwe would have been PROUD of a few months ago.

And…I have a friend whose place always seemed so neat and put away and I used to wonder how she kept it like that. I haven’t been seeing her a lot and the other day I went over for the first time after we had been keeping our own place picked up and SURPRISE!!!! Her place isn’t all that picked up at all!!!!

Remember your first trip out to our place, I mentioned the Collyer brothers—champion hoarders of all time? I found a good website about them complete with around 60 photos taken for the newspapers. They lived in a four-story brownstone in NY. One of them was blind and perhaps the hoarding started with the other bringing home stacks of newspapers for “Homer to read once he gets his sight back.”  Homer was found dead in the house after neighbors noted and reported his strangely unmoving body before the window and the other brother couldn’t be found. After they removed over fifty tons of trash, they found him crushed within what some kind of escape tunnel within all the junk.  He had died before Homer.  In all they removed 180 tons of stuff, additionally there was some stuff good enough to sell at auction. Interesting story. It seemed to capture the imagination of the city. It happened in 1947…..

The kitchen area is now automatically cleared; it just happened, seemingly all by itself.  Decluttering at night doesn’t take long since we only clutter in the kitchen….

I wish I didn’t have to sleep! Before you came over, I had two things that I wished I could devote an hour or two to daily—studying Spanish and writing—and now I have three!  I am champing at the bit to get back up to the ‘organizing table.’  I decided to go ahead and do my filing since it was 98% finished (which I discovered once I looked at it after having worked on it a good lump of time some time ago and then didn’t get back to it).

Another half-hour or so on the filing and then it’s time to rip into the walk-in closet!!…

It really is a matter of taking a very few minutes every night and the kitchen stays clear.  And I guess I had never fully appreciated the fact that the only space we clutter is the kitchen…..

The decluttering continues!!!

I find that I knew just how to proceed once you pushed us down the pathway by helping us all yank all that stuff out of the closets.  As we were doing it, I remember having the realization several times that I would never have had enough nerve to have tackled the job in so bold a fashion. But it is the boldness that gets the momentum going, because you can’t stop when everything is in the middle of a room and it all looks so much worse than it ever did.

The baskets for ‘read’ and ‘file’ are automatically clutter-killers as is the tickler-file. Everything just seems to work a lot better and more smoothly and the paper mess isn’t driving me nuts any longer.

I’ve gotten to the bottom of the ‘my’ and ‘our’ mess we piled in the blue room and have it sorted in put away boxes and am going strong on the exciting part which is moving into the blue room closet. I think the rest of the house will be much simpler than this part was.

I’m glad you’re coming back to help Amos out with some of his things….

I really appreciate the vision you had to see the point at which we needed to start to see our way through to the neatness that lay behind everything.

I’m finding myself pre-de-cluttering-that is to say, throwing away things in rooms that I haven’t even officially gotten to yet….

(Amos is giving me many recommendations to people and I felt moved to offer a discount because one of the referrals resulted in forty hours of work for satisfied clients)

Your offer of half-price organizing work is very generous.  Thank you so much.  We can’t take you up on it because neither of our consciences would allow us to pay so little for work that requires such a skill.

I actually started a tiny garden…5 tomatoes, three bell peppers, four basil. I didn’t think I would get to it this year. I think I have the momentum going to have a real garden next year—lettuces, kale, carrots, radishes, etc. I think the energy for the outside has a lot to do with the fact that the inside of the house is feeling more organized. Plus, I’m finally able to develop a beginning plan for getting the yard looking better. I’ll be getting in touch with you about the hour of free gardening time.

I ripped into the large walk-in closet off the upstairs bathroom. It’s amazing how much stuff was up there, now all down into the blue room staging area. client in Fayetteville

  1. Patricia took on the daunting task of helping Northwest Arkansas Entrepreneurship Alliance pack up and transfer the contents of The Iceberg coworking facility, which spanned over 5,000SF in downtown Fayetteville. She organized a large group of volunteers over the course of multiple days to sort, clean, organize, pack and label everything from office supplies, appliances and books to furniture, artwork and electronics for transfer and storage. Patricia’s energy and enthusiasm for the undertaking never lagged in the slightest, even on the longest of days, and she greeted everyone and every new challenge with positivity and delight. She provided wonderful suggestions for dividing and conquering what could have turned easily into a very overwhelming job, and she helped the board meet deadlines without stress. She was very meticulous about returning items to rightful owners, carefully packaging fragile objects and ensuring all of the volunteers were having fun yet observing necessary safety measures. She even enlisted extra help to do more specialized work, such as breaking down larger pieces of furniture and removing mounted equipment from the walls. Additionally, Patricia provided diligent followup on any outstanding items to make sure the job was 100% complete and that no loose ends were left unaddressed. She was well prepared and doggedly determined to deliver quality work, and the volunteers provided positive feedback on her coordination skills.
