Hi! I’m Jill!
I am so happy you are here! I founded J. Ryan Solutions to inspire and teach household managers how to break through the chaos and create systems that bring order and a sense of calm. Through my online course and speaking engagements I take my experience as a professional organizer and empower my students to find the solutions they need in their homes. Household management is not only my business but it is my passion and hobby as well!
How I got started
Have you ever worked in a job and knew it just wasn’t right? That was me in 2015; I stepped away from my office job and decided to take a 6 month sabbatical to create the space in my life to think and find a new direction. During that time, I realized I absolutely loved to organize, systematize, clean, and be productive. I quickly found that these activities brought me joy and I started to thrive!
Friends and family took notice, and I started helping them organize their lives. This was my new direction – I became a professional organizer! I spent a few years working in client homes and offices, honing household systems that offer simple and effective solutions with a big payoff – confidence and a sense of calm. The categories of my systems also happened to all start with the letter C (any alliteration lovers out there?!) – Clutter, Cash, Calendars, and Cleaning. Since then, my business has evolved and is now focused on teaching (check out my new online course) and public speaking!
My life at home
I live in Arizona with my loyal, humble husband of 10 years and two young daughters. I am originally from Minnesota, but after 25 years in the desert, I think I’ve earned the right (and endured plenty of 115+ degree days) to call myself a Phoenician.
What I love
- Problem solving
- Making people’s lives better
- Finding the most efficient way to do something
- Being challenged to be super creative and find a different way
- Getting rid of excess stuff
- Dialing in the budget
- Checking off to do lists
- Deep cleaning…anything
