2019: The Year in Review

December 19, 2019

Hello, I'm Rachel
I’m a busy mom, entrepreneur, and an expert in organizing your home, office, and life. I believe in the profound impact of organizing on every aspect of life.

I always love the end of the year as I get the opportunity to pause and reflect back on the year which if I am being honest, isn’t something I did at all during this year, so this is a welcomed opportunity. 2019 was Rachel and Company’s best year to date and that meant a lot of going and doing and not much time for reflection or at least I didn’t make the choice for reflection. I have a new year’s resolution for 2020 to do more pausing and reflection and less doing and going but for now, I will take the opportunity to do my annual thank you and highlights of the past year.

2019 was a tremendous year in some many different areas and I am extremely grateful for it all. I could not run this little business of mine without my team and I am so fortunate to have committed, enthusiastic, brilliant, organized, and loving team members that help make Rachel and Company the best organizing firm in the Washington, DC area (dare I say even outside the area?!)

And so this blog doesn’t turn into a sappy, long thank you note and therapy session for me, I will try to condense the 2019 highlights below!

For those of you reading, our clients, those that follow us on social media, read our newsletter, read our blog and most importantly my team of organizers, handyman and other team members, THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for making 2019 one for the record books!

I am wishing you all a happy and healthy end to 2019 and start to 2020!
