About MJ Rosenthal
Professional Organizer, Organizational/Productivity Coach
I am an empathetic, passionate and experienced Certified Professional Organizer and Organizational & Productivity Coach who shows clients how to move from where they are to where they want to be by helping them create balance in their lives among space, belongings and time.
Working with individuals, families and businesses, I not only show clients how to become organized, but also how to develop strategies to stay organized. My customized approach shows you how to simplify your life, create a more efficient and productive environment and have peace of mind knowing you are in control.
After graduating Boston University and working in the fields of advertising, event planning and hotel/property management, I decided to make a change. Corporate America was going a million miles an hour. I saw colleagues, friends, family overwhelmed by life, their schedule, their “stuff.” Life is complicated enough. Space, stuff and time should not complicate one’s life. They should be simple, attractive, create balance and enjoyment.
I kept wondering, what if I could:
- Teach people to learn the tools she possessed that made her successful in her professional and personal lives - organization, planning, balance?
- Help them create simplicity and be more in control?
- Assist them in digging out of the clutter and find solutions to be organized, ultimately making life easier in this busy world of ours.
I told my best friend of my new idea and venture An Organized Life. Her friend chuckled. “Don’t you know you have been doing that all of your life? From organizing and writing captions in your photo albums when you were a little girl, all of the strategic planning and organization you do at work, to the amazing organization and planning you did for me when I moved.”
She confirmed that I was ready to teach others.
I am a proud and long-standing member of NAPO (National Association of Professional Organizers), NAPO-New England and The Institute for Challenging Disorganization (formerly The National Study Group on Disorganization.) Active in these organizations, I formerly held the position of Treasurer on the NAPO-New England Board of Directors. Since 2012, I have been Certified Professional Organizer.
In addition to professional organizing, I also saw a need to help those with ADD/ADHD and executive function disorder. I have expanded my expertise with ADD Coaching, Executive Function Coaching and Organizational Coaching to help those who struggle with getting things done.
I am a lifelong learner and am always working to expand my knowledge so I can continue to provide advanced services and teachings to my clients. I have the following:
- Certification in Professional Organizing (CPO)
- Level I ADD & CD Specialty Certificates from the Institute for Challenging Disorganization
- Completed the training from the Coach Approach, Coach Training for Organizers
Founder of An Organized Life, I am a Certified Professional Organizer (CPO) and an Organizational Coach. An Organized Life, LLC is based in Newton, MA and services Greater Boston, Metro West and Eastern Massachusetts communities.
About MJ Rosenthal
My son’s bar mitzvah party was perfect because of MJ. Her creativity, flexibility and hands-on approach made the planning easy and the event flow without a hitch. All we had to do was enjoy the evening while she took care of all the details. MJ made the event a complete success!
