What inspired you to start your company?
I have been working in a similar platform overseas and decided to move home and bring the concept with me. With the price of living space and the cost of living steadily rising, many families move from home to home and grow over time, without having the time to actually reflect on their personal items and to decide whether they are actually useful to them any longer. It takes time and motivation and these tasks are often daunting - thats where I come in, a coach of sorts, asking the right questions and keeping my clients motivated - reaching the end of the session on time and achieving the goals we set!
Why should anyone use your service or product?
Time is of great value to everyone - I have the time to get my clients organised and I have the motivation! I offer solutions to maintain the space and I remove all unwanted items - so that when the session is over, the space is complete!

Why LoA loves it….
Let’s be honest, every home and company probably has at least one space which is in need of decluttering in order to become a useable and enjoyable space again, but often there simply isn’t the time and the energy to tackle it. This is where entrepreneur Bryony Parr comes in with her business Oh So Organised. She is on a mission to turn those spaces into great places to be once again, providing a professional organising service that will bring sanity to any home or business owner again. --- Melanie Hawken, founder and editor-in-chief of Lionesses of Africa
