We had the good fortune of connecting with Jill McMeekin and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Jill, what principle do you value most?
The value or principle that matters the most to me is helping others. I think that is what life is all about. It’s about using your talents and your passions to make someone else’s life a little better and a little brighter. That is the whole reason I am in business – to teach people how to set up systems in their home so that they can feel more at peace and feel more in control. I want people to be confident about everything that’s happening in their homes, from having a handle on clutter and organization, to understanding their budget and personal finances, to knowing how to plan out events and projects, to having the knowledge to clean and maintain their home. I believe systems at home reduce stress and frustration. I also believe anyone is capable of learning how to implement systems. And I am here to help! I love to teach and explain something, especially if it can improve the life of someone else.
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
I am a household management coach who helps busy families create systems for their clutter, cash, calendars, and cleaning so that they can feel calm and confident in their homes. What sets me apart from others is the fact that I focus on all FOUR pillars of household management (the 4 Cs, as mentioned above!). I think each pillar is equally important. It’s important to be intentional about the stuff we keep in our homes, and to know where everything lives. It’s important to have a budget for our money and filing systems for our paperwork. It’s important to have a to-do management system and synchronized calendars. And, last but not least, it’s important to know how to clean our homes and maintain our appliances. If we can set up systems across the board, I believe it can change our lives. For the better!
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
What a fun question! I would definitely take them for a hike up Camelback mountain, and then out to brunch at Windsor on Central. We’d have drinks on the patio at the Phoenician and enjoy the gorgeous sunset on our city’s horizon. We would go walk around Scottsdale Quarters, see a baseball game downtown, and maybe play a round of golf! All this to say, I hope their trip is during the spring 😉
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I want to dedicate my shoutout to my husband, Logan. He stood by me and supported me when I quit my job in 2015 and took 6 months off to figure out what I wanted to do. He has supported me every surefooted and awkward step of the way. He has, and continues to be, my number one supporter in my business. Thank you, love, for always being there for me!
