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. As an organizing coach, I help people through my online courses, 1:1 coaching, and speaking engagements. I love empowering my clients 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
