Blog:  www.1-2-3GetOrganized.blogspot.com

I'm a professional organizer and a personality profile facilitator. As I have organized people over the years, I've noticed that certain personality styles are more overwhelmed with organizing than others, usually those who are creative and artistic.

As a result, I wrote a series of small, colorful, glossy, short books for this audience - each covering only one area of organizing (kitchen, office, decluttering, etc.) to instill confidence that they can do this! There are seventeen books in the series, three written specifically for moms: time management for single moms, working moms,  and stay-at-home moms.

14. Holly Klaassen

Kids: Daughter, 4.5 and son, 2 

Category: Entrepreneur and Parenting 'expert'

I have two businesses:

Fussy Baby


Fussy Baby is a support site for parents of fussy, colicky or high needs babies.  Some babies are content to be held by their parents, sit happily in their strollers, or peacefully drift off to sleep in their cribs.  Other babies seem to need constant holding, attention, distraction, and motion...and even then, they may cry or scream.  Fussy Baby offers expert articles, stories from parents, and even an active Facebook group.  

I am not an expert on the medical reason why babies may cry excessively.  What I am an 'expert' in, is parents' experience of living with a fussy baby.  It is no surprise that the leading cause of Shaken Baby Syndrome is infant crying.  My goal is for Fussy Baby to be a resource parents & caregivers find before they resort to harming their baby.  Sometimes all parents need is an acknowledgement that having a crying baby is really, really hard, and that they are not alone. The emotional strain of having a colicky or high needs baby is the most difficult aspect of having a fussy baby, and sometimes just knowing this is a universal experience can help.

My second business:


Her SEO offers search engine consultation to women business owners.  We analyze your website to determine how to increase your search engine traffic, and how to draw in the most qualified website visitors.  We work closely with you to target your content towards what people are really looking for...and at all a price that small business owners can afford.
