The Secret to an Organized Home with Margo Staten

Want to know what the BIG secret is to have an organized home? Today’s guest is Margo Staten of Be Good to Yourself by Margo, and she’s got the answers for you! 

Margo likes to motivate and empower women to improve their quality of life by creating a relaxing home environment, and she says every woman deserves a clean and tidy home she can be proud of. Margo is a psychology professor, professional home organizer and decluttering coach with over 15 years of experience working with women and helping them to improve their quality of life.
