BUSINESS SUCCESS STORIES

Straighten-Up Organizing

Straighten-Up OrganizingWhen there is so much to do, and so little time to do it in, we often find ourselves collecting clutter and becoming disorganized.  Nancy Rothwell, owner of Straighten-Up Organizing, LLC, has helped hundreds of individuals and families organize their homes and businesses. Areas she has helped organize include garages, kitchens, offices, toy rooms, craft rooms, closets, attics, photo albums, vehicles, purses and paper areas.  Currently, Rothwell is a member of the National Association of Professional Organizers, a member of the National Study Group on Chronic Disorganization and a member of Faithfull Organizers.

"It all started when I was about eight years old," Rothwell said. "I was at my friend's house and noticed how well-polished her organizing skills were, and I remembered I wanted to be just like that."

Years later, Rothwell helped a friend organize a kitchen, and was approached by another person who asked how much she charged for her organizing help. Apparently, her disorganized-kitchen friend told everyone about Rothwell's amazing organizing skills.

"Word of mouth has really been a big help in getting my name out there," Rothwell said.

Word spread fast, and Rothwell, a mother of two, found her niche and launched Straighten-Up Organizing, LLC, in 2003 to help families and businesses from all over Wisconsin get organized.

"The biggest struggle has really been in determining which direction to take my business. There are so many areas that want my help, but I find myself facing time constraints. I have a lot going on and there isn't always enough time in the day to do everything," Rothwell said. 

"Western Dairyland has really helped me to get started as a business owner," Rothwell said. "I worked with Julie Bollinger at Western Dairyland to help create my website."

Straighten-Up Organizing, LLC, continues to prosper as Rothwell leads many seminars, workshops and lectures to help people learn tips for organizing.  She has also inspired her husband to pursue entrepreneurship with a complimentary business, Not Just Closets, LLC, which was started two years ago. Not Just Closets, LLC designs and installs storage systems for closets, garages, offices, laundry rooms, pantries and many other areas.

"I have found my calling," Nancy said, reflecting on the success of her business. "I have a strong trust in God, and I will continue to rely on Him to lead me in the direction He wants me to go."
