Standolyn Robertson


Disorganization is more than a daily challenge – it blocks happiness and prosperity. Clutter and chaos get in the way of our dreams, overwhelm us, and can (in worst-case scenarios) lead to debt, struggle, and conflict. However, with just a few simple adjustments in viewpoint or procedure, it’s possible to turn it all around.

I work with clients and audiences across the globe to help them identify their unique problem areas; find order, space, clarity, and peace of mind; and ultimately make space and time for the important things in their lives.

Through audience participation and engaging, easy-to-follow topics, I’ll help your participants make more room for what they really want (success, joy, and relaxation, for starters).
