Look around your home office. What do you see? If you’re anything like Pamela Meyer than what you see is probably in need of a little organization, reports 9News.com.
Then Meyer stumbled upon Angela Cody-Rouget, a professional organizer who runs a business called Major Mom.
Cody-Rouget started the company in 2006, after serving 14 years in the military. She was discharged as a major, hence the company name. She chose to leave the military after having two children.
“I decided that military life and motherhood are just completely incompatible,” Cody-Rouget said. “I went on a soul search, I had to reinvent myself and decide what I’m going to do. I was an employee my entire life, I was raised to be an employee and a clock puncher. Everybody in my family is an employee.”
With an MBA and 14 years of experience in the military, Cody-Rouget says she tried getting a job.
“I was overqualified or under qualified, the job market was really tough,” she said. “I knew I was born to organize, I knew that I had this gift that I should be sharing with the world.”
She started alone and in time, grew her company to six employees. Today, Major Mom is looking to hire eight more.
“I love getting up knowing I have a huge organizing job that day, cause it’s instant results,” she said.
