About Ida Tetlock

Many of us spend our whole lifetime in search of our true purpose… and I am grateful to have found mine in providing professional organizing and life management services to others.

I am most fulfilled when I am partnered with my clients to provide organizational expertise, solutions and support during periods of transition or changes in their life, home and business. 

My name is Ida Tetlock, I am a small business owner, practitioner and community advocate. 

Ida Tetlock- professional organizer

I have been told I am the finder of lost space, time and money!

I have a natural inclination to organize, maximize space and solve problems.

Much like an artist, athlete, scholar or tradesperson, having a knack for something is not what allows us to excel in our fields. It is through education, application, mentorship and life experiences our skills are developed and refined.

I am a life-long learner and have enjoyed successful careers in security administration, business and office administration, social services (youth criminal justice), customer service, information technology, business analysis, project management, property management, professional organizing and life management.

One of my earliest memories of organizing was when I was just a tot and could fit into the crawl space under our basement stairs. My mom, a tailor by trade and seamstress by hobby, stored bags full of fabric, patterns, sewing accessories and fabric remnants. I would spend hours folding fabric, sorting patterns, buttons and zippers. The crawlspace looked like a fabric store!  This was my joy!  It didn’t stop in the crawlspace of course…

I went on to organize everything in any space I had access to. It wasn’t long before I was being called on to organize with family members, friends and at work.

Organizing has continued to be my passion throughout my life. I see it as a gift worth sharing – especially since it’s had an incredible positive impact on the lives of all I have shared it with. Being a constant resource for family, friends and their loved ones, the need for my organizing and support services was continually increasing and that lead to formalizing the services I offered as a small business practice and SMART Organizing was born in 2016.

Ida Tetlock- Organizing Life, Home & Business

“What I have learned along my life journey is that in life and business we can expect a series of transitions. We should relish the joys and accomplishments and when obstacles get in our way, view them as temporary inconveniences and get past them.”  – Ida Tetlock

Being disorganized doesn’t have to be a way of life or define you as a person. It’s a state of being which can be changed by getting organized in a way that serves you better. We shouldn’t have to change our lives to fit how our homes or offices were once organized, we should change the way we organize to fit our lives today. 

Sometimes the hardest part about getting organized is getting started or reaching out for support if you don’t know where to begin. Partnering with a professional organizer and life manager who serves as your personal accountability partner empowers you to establish clear objectives in support of your priorities, take action and enjoy the feeling of accomplishment when you succeed! 

You are not alone; we are here to help.
