From Construction Queen to Lifestyle & Organizational Guru
Born and raised on a farm in a small town in Ontario, Canada, Jane’s love for organizing began at an early age. She would line up all of her pet cats by size, books by publication date and stuffed animals by color! Jane grew up to work for one of the largest cement companies in the world, climbing the corporate ladder. This company moved her all over Canada, and then on to Zurich, Switzerland, where her parents were born. Jane gained invaluable skills through this career, but realized she was not following her heart and did not have the flexibility she needed in her life. She then went on to found her own business, Organizing For Your Lifestyle, in 2017.
“I started off by organizing spaces for my friends and family – just for fun! Then I realized this was truly my passion, and I wrote and self-published my first book, Organizing For Your Lifestyle, while still working my corporate job,” explains Jane. “Eventually, I made the leap and quit. At first, I was terrified to branch out on my own. I even hired the fabulous coach Think Natalia to help me get over my fears. My fear was so intense, I was even afraid to change my LinkedIn profile, notifying others that I left the corporate world.”
Now, Jane is thriving. Her business, Organizing For Your Lifestyle has touched the lives of many individuals, businesses and families. Through modern technology, such as FaceTime and Skype, Jane is able to walk clients through the necessary steps. She also travels all over the world to transform spaces and people’s lives, and is in the process of developing her signature 30-day Organizing course, set to launch in Summer 2018.
What makes Jane’s organizing approach unique is her holistic method. “Organizing is a lifestyle, that will help you conquering anything.” Jane’s skills are not only applicable within ones living space, but also at ones place of business. Whether it is a large corporate office, or a shared workspace, Jane strongly believes that organization and routines enhance once work productivity, and quality of life. She starts redefining your office and continues at your home – or vice versa.
“People do not often see the correlation between their cluttered spaces, and their stress and anxiety,” says Stoller. “Even just a quick spring-cleaning or properly folded clothes can make such a big difference. Organization within ones spaces leads to reduced stress, increased happiness, and productivity.”
Most recently Jane completed an office re-structure for a financial services firm in Ottawa, Canada. The process included not only focusing on the organizational chart but the specific tasks for each employee and training on how to be most productive to get these tasks done. The result was a 30% increase in employee productivity, which is valuable time they can now spend with clients.
Jane’s latest one-on-one coaching client reached out to help get her started with the goal of starting a side business. Jane broke down the steps and over 4 one-on-one coaching sessions, which entailed helping this client organize her space, re-define her targets and goals, determining time management skills, and putting a plan in place to start her side business successfully.
A trademark that Jane insists on tackling is the closet. Jane strongly believes any organizational plan begins with the closet, as it is the first thing most people see after they wake up. This sets the mood for entire day. For this space, she helps develop the best organizing schemes, which transfer over to the rest of her clients’ goals.
“Getting organized can be overwhelming and daunting. Often, the hardest part is figuring out where to start. But that’s something I can help with, because I’ve already done the research, and pulled together information that I know will help motivate my clients and make organizing a priority.”
Her ultimate goal is to make organizing a routine so that people can forget about it! Her mantra: “Organizing is a lifestyle, but it isn’t one-size-fits-all. Incorporating organizing into your life shouldn’t, ultimately, involve changing who you are, but rather maximizing it. Remember: being organized doesn’t mean thinking about organizing all the time. Ideally, being organized means that you don’t have to think about organizing all the time—because you do it automatically, as an organic part of your everyday routine.”
In addition, Stoller is a part of the tech world, currently developing an educational video game based on real-world construction design launching in early 2019. With her widespread experience in construction, including hands on operational management to global performance improvement, she hopes to make the tech world a cool place to work for millennials and increase the overall digitization of the industry.
In her little spare time, Jane enjoys staying active – snowboarding during the winter, wakeboarding in the summer, and running. She also has property in the Bahamas, where she enjoys family time, and is able to reset and refresh. She currently spends most of her time between Vancouver, Canada and Zurich, Switzerland.
