Ep 277: Partner Spotlight with Kristy Potgieter
We’re back today with another Partner Spotlight Episode! We started this series back in January, and I hope you’re loving it as much as I am. Each month I sit down with a different professional organizer to get a “behind the scenes” look at their lives. From growing up, to learning about what they did prior to starting their professional organizing journey, we’re giving you a glimpse into their worlds and learning a few organizing tips along the way!
Joining me today is Kristy Potgieter, founder of KLP Organizing. Kristy has been part of our SBO partner program for over 2 years and one of my favorite people!
About a year ago, during one of our mentor calls, Kristy came to me with an idea she had for developing an online tool to help streamline and simplify the design & layout process for spaces like pantries, drawers, and cabinets.
I thought it was an incredible idea,and something that could be a huge time saver for both homeowners & professional organizers. So Kristy, along with her husband, Riian, did what most of us only talk about doing…saw a gap in the marketplace and created a solution.
I asked Kristy to come on the show today, to talk about her new business baby, Sortifi, the only design tool specifically for professional organizers which officially launched last month.
During our conversation we talk about:
- Kristy’s life prior to becoming a professional organizer
- What it’s like starting a business with your husband
- How being an Enneagram 1 (the perfectionist) can be both a blessing and a challenge in the world of organizing and entrepreneurship.
- The goal of Sortifi, including who it’s for, and how it works
She is offering an exclusive promo for our listeners. Make sure to use code SBO15 when you sign up for your free trial to take advantage of this offer.
