Meet the SBO Team
I’m Laurie Palau, founder of simply B organized. Mom, wife, entrepreneur, & coffee lover.
Most days you can find me working with my hair in a messy bun on top of my head. Most evenings I can be found at home with my laundry loving husband Josh, 2 teenage daughters, Zoe & Logan, and 2 dogs Jeter & Oliver. (I’m most likely crawled up on my couch, in my pjs, snuggled with my puppies, watching BRAVO, with a drink in hand.)
I am passionate about helping people reduce clutter in their lives, so they can spend time doing the things they love with the people who matter most.
I’m mostly known as the host of the weekly podcast, This ORGANIZED Life, and author of the book, HOT MESS: A PRACTICAL GUIDE TO GETTING ORGANIZED. Think of them as survival guides for anyone who has felt overwhelmed and needs some simple strategies to get on track.
I am equally passionate about building relationships & empowering others.
I have been blessed to have been able to turn my passion into a profession and now it’s my turn to help others do the same.If you are a professional organizer (or thinking about becoming one), I want to help! Regardless of whether you are just starting out, or knee deep in the weeds, our PARTNER and MENTOR programs are designed to help empower, promote and champion other entrepreneurs by providing support to grow your brand.
One of my favorite things to do is share my strategies in-person at one of my “The Clutter Clinic” ™ events which is now a nationally recognized program! If you’re interested in hosting a CLUTTER CLINIC ™in your city, contact us to learn more.
Whether working with clients, writing, speaking or mentoring, my goal is to teach, inspire, motivate and empower you to reclaim time in your life, to do the things you love, with the people who mean the most.
I hope you stick around so we can get to know one another.
Erika, a former nurse, is no stranger to helping others. After taking some time off to raise her two children she joined the SBO team in 2011, and has been helping clients regain control of their homes by creating organized spaces for them to live and enjoy. Clients love Erika, because she is the “good cop” in the relationship! Her most favorite job is co-hosting This ORGANIZED Life podcast.
Oh and she jumps at any chance to tell someone that she “works for an author”
Courtney is our social media maven and mom to 2 feisty kids. Courtney helps to run our SBO Partner Program and social communities. Courtney loves going to concerts, cobb salads and flavored seltzer. If you buy her a drink, she will tell you all about baking a cake with Martha Stewart.
