Mary Carlomagno, age 43, is an Organizer, Speaker and Author of several books including: Live More, Want Less: 52 Ways to Find Order in Your Life and Give It Up!: My Year of Learning to Live Better with Less. She is currently working on her fourth book, doing an office makeover for a fantastic blogger namedPatty Chang Ankerand wrangling two children.
While wearing all these hats (stylish ones of course!), she loves that she has the freedom to integrate her work and her life as she chooses! Her mission is to to have her ideal day, everyday. A constant flow of communication wherever she is keeps her curious and she tries to learn something new in everything she does, whether she is speaking to a corporation, working with a client or building blocks with her kids.
One last thing Mary wants to share is:
“ Getting organized is more than moving your shoes! Lao Tzu once said that when you make space something in your life, something new will replace it. Do you think he meant black pumps?”
