We had the good fortune of connecting with Erica Thompson and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Erica, how has your perspective on work-life balance evolved over time?
My definition of work life balance has evolved over the years. When I was younger, I thought the more hours I spent at work the more “productive” I was. When I was in advertising in New York I worked day and night. The whole reason I moved across the county was to have a different experience and see and do everything New York had to offer but most of that time was spent looking at the city from my office window. Now, I no longer dread Mondays because my work week and weekends share the same quality: I’m doing things I love.
What should our readers know about your business?
As a home organizer bringing order to chaos and helping overwhelmed people create calm and more beauty in their environment is what I do best. I love that something that comes naturally to me can help others live better and more productive lives.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I didn’t have one specific mentor; I’ve been guided along the way by all of the strong female role models who have given me encouragement and great advice. From my friends who have their own businesses to those balancing family and work, they show me that I can do it too. I have recently started working with a PR Guru and Coach Alex Abramian. She is really helping me get clear on my messaging and how I approach and promote my business.
