I, like most of the universe, has become obsessed with Marie Kondo. After binging her Netflix show, Tidying Up, I googled the crap out of this woman to learn more. I had read the book years ago, but I guess I just wasn’t ready for her.
I found Caitlin on the KonMari website and when I clicked on the “Consultants” page, I learned that Marie has a certification process to teach others her specific method and practices. Which, of course, I thought was brilliant. Scrolling through, I found Caitlin and reached out to her. I was simply curious as to how she found this program and wanted to dive deeper into how this new “trend” has elevated her business and her life. I also congratulated and celebrated her for being a visionary and seeing this way before it became the rage.
Caitlin Roberts is a Master KonMari Consultant in Los Angeles, CA. Her background is in communications, operations, and human resources, however, she found her calling when she read Marie Kondo’s book The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up. After applying this method to her own home she became completely overcome with a desire to share this philosophy with everyone she knew. After attending the seminar in San Francisco, she left her day job and opened her consulting practice, Minimize With Purpose. She has found her calling and is grateful everyday that she can work in a field that totally aligns with her values.
