Hello, and welcome to green by design. This is your host, Erica Reiner from eco method interiors. And today I have the pleasure of being joined by Julie Naylon of no wire hangers. Thank you so much for your time today, Julie, and thank you for being here.

Julie Naylon (00:24):

Thanks for having me. Absolutely.

Now I'm going to tell you guys a little bit about Julie right before we pop in. So Julie has had a passion for organization and the environment since she was a child growing up in the suburbs outside of Detroit, Michigan, her mother had a gift for organizing and with her guidance, Julie soon found that she preferred categorizing the toys in her toy box to playing with them. So she was actually in the past in the film and television world and between projects between those two things, she started organizing her colleagues homes and built her business out of that passion. So she has been around, let's see, since for a few years now, I don't think I have a start date. I saw a date 2014, but that was actually when, just when she appeared on the Conan O'Brien show, she says, she's been doing this for a bit.

And she currently resides here with me in Los Angeles. And look is looking forward to helping more people clear the clutter and live a more simplified a lifestyle. So that's a little bit about her and I'm so excited to have her on and get to learn all this good stuff. So again, thank you so much and we can jump right into it. Do you want to tell us a little bit more about that story of how you, you know, kind of started taking your mom's influence and then got asked to do some organizing at work and built your own business out of this?
