Mamavation Mondays: Mental Clutter

Ever feel overwhelmed? LOL! Go ahead and roll your eyes with your role as mother, busy woman, and healthy living advocate.  There are tips and tricks to help keep your sanity and focus though if you ever feel like your bubble of calm is slipping away.  Our guest this week is a star in this field of helping become better organized and focused.

Special Guest: April Welch (@Mental_Clutter)

April Welch {Organizing Expert} has always had a knack for listening to folks & helping them realize their GOALS, DREAMS, PRIORITIES & sometimes even their TALENTS.

Her training as a professional organizer has given her a unique skill set that she brings to work each day, whether she is speaking on a national stage to large groups or has rolled up her sleeves & is helping a client virtually with their private struggles.

Her quick bio reads:

April is a Mental Clutter Expert | Mom of 2 boys | Wife to 1 Fireman | Horrible Cook | Loyal Friend | National Public Speaker who gives you permission to be imperfect
