Chelsey LauerChelsey Lauer is the Founder & CEO of JLB Simplify Professional Organizing. Naturally drawn to organizing, Chelsey was the one to call when her family or friends needed help. However, as her family grew to 5, she noticed her home was becoming more unorganized and cluttered. Regardless of how good she was at helping others get organized, she found herself to overwhelmed to even start. Disorganization is often a product of the emotions involved, the physical work required, and the lack of time needed to get organized. She wanted to create an organizing service that catered to others like herself; people who found themselves knee deep in stuff due to life changes. After getting certified as a professional organizer she opened JLB Simplify and designed the service and the organizing method used by JLB organizers to reduce the stress that comes with the organizing process. Her goal is to help others realize we are all human and all struggle from time to time and that organizing is a skill you can learn to be better at. The JLB Simplify 4-Step Organizing method is broken down into 4 easy and clear steps, which focus on reducing stress as well as tips on how to make decisions about your belongings.

Cory SackettCory Sackett, founder of “Liqui-Dirt”.
(If we do the right things, for the right reasons, greatness will be at our feet.)
My Life goal has always been to make a difference. A difference that will truly change lives. The passion behind “Liqui-Dirt” comes from family and the bonds that are created with friends. I care deeply for my environment and want to protect the very thing that gave us life. We only have one world and we are all a part of it, which is why I take an active roll in doing my part to repair the damage that has come from generations of neglect. This set of core values are the foundation for “Liqui-Dirt”.
My goal is to naturally and cost effectively rebuild ecosystems and continue to develop better ways of producing healthier plants around the world. I use ethics, hard work and knowledge from around the globe to bring this into every product by Liqui-Dirt.
In creating Liqui-Dirt, I hope to inspire you and your family to come together, plant a garden, watch it grow, laugh, and have fun. It is the love for the harvests we prepare, that brings the biggest smiles to everyone.
This truly is one of the most crucial reasons I have created this nutrient. Seeing first hand the sense of joy gardening can bring. There is just something about growing from a seed into a lush plant and what it can do to repair lives. This testament of togetherness creates the stories and traditions that are passed down through the ages becoming the stories of our families.
Liqui-Dirt can repair the very nature of all growing areas and materials. “It is truly unlike any other product”. Rather than short gained results this has the ability to restore the very plants, trees and ecosystems, that drive the circle of life. Liqui-Dirt rejuvenates the ground even from a natural disaster or in leached soil from flood and or fire.
Made from the best natural ingredients and hundreds of years of tried and true knowledge from my family and farmers from around the world, I've condensed this down to the basis for the “Liqui-Dirt” formulation. It truly is a full nutrient for your planted areas not just gardens but anywhere plant life is not growing well.
Taking time to think of my own family, friends and the joy that is surrounded by a simple garden inspires me to do even more. This is what drives me to provide the best products with all the benefits of natural organic ingredients. Better food in our bodies equals a better way of life, full of the joy spent with family and friends. Together with our hands in the ground we can grow a new generation of family traditions and the respect for our environment can be cultivated.
