What people are saying

  • Thank you sooooo much for your help with my email! It was just the push I needed, and your approach was so simple that I had literally finalized my email organization by Fri.
    My inbox is EMPTY and I’m using my Action folders religiously now ☺ Of course, I have more emails to sort through, but it feels so good to have an organizational system moving forward. Thanks again!

  • I finally feel like I can get a handle on my emails. With everything falling into my main email I get overwhelmed and I know emails get missed and that is not a good business practice!!
    I really appreciate your time, clear information, and follow up email with instruction about what you taught me in case i forget :), your patience in teaching me how to manage it on my own and knowing you are just a phone call or email away if I get stuck!!!! I am actually looking forward to tackling my emails!

  • April was a great find and help just when I needed it!
    I was going crazy with the details of starting my own business. [April] listened to my immediate and long term needs for my business and jumped right in to help me regain my sanity. April was calm when I needed it and excited and energized when I was down. It was a great help to have someone detail oriented to work with me.

To Boldly Go

Woman achieving goal, success

I had an ulterior motive for starting my business.

Ilios Digital Organizing was first conceived because organizing is my passion. I organized toy rooms when I babysat, the books when I worked at the bookstore, and even the gift cards when I wait in line at Target.

I’ve been blessed to be able to start a business doing what I love. There’s just something satisfying about helping someone put their digital world in order so they can live an easier, more productive life.

But I have a hidden agenda.

A secret reason why I do what I do.

I love to see people’s confidence around tech increase.

Tech can be scary. You know how it feels. Something isn’t working with your tech and maybe there is a solution but you can’t find it online. Or you do find a solution but aren’t really sure you should be pushing those buttons.

What if you mess something up? What if you break something you can’t fix?

What if you crash your computer?

Yeah, that feeling.

My clients feel that anxiety too, and it’s part of my job to help ease it. It’s why I’m not afraid to search Google in front of them. Or try something different to solve a new problem. Or admit that no, I’ve never seen that before but, hey, let’s try to figure out an answer.

I make my clients ‘drive’ the mouse when we’re working on their computers. Not because I’m lazy, but because I want them to experience how to troubleshoot while still having a safety net. It builds their belief that yes, they can do this.

Nobody voluntarily says ‘Hey, April, I feel more confident around tech now, thanks.’ but when I mentioned my hidden agenda to a former client she paused, thought for a moment, then nodded and said, ‘you know, I do feel more confident when I’m working with my computer than I used to.’

And that feeling is one of the reasons I do what I do.

But how about you?

How confident do you feel when it comes to managing your tech?

Would you like to be more self-assured when you’re working on your computer? More courageous when it comes time to troubleshoot? Give me a call and let’s talk about how to make that feeling happen.

Finding What You Need With Document Organizing

When I worked at Barnes and Noble I loved shelving. I think it spoke to my organizer’s heart to put the books on their designated shelf, neatly arranged by author or subject. I’ll admit, I still adjust the books sometimes when I’m in there browsing.

It never failed, though. I’d have a customer looking for a book on slow cooking and we’d go to the shelf, scan the titles but no luck. Then later I’d find the book in question tucked away in another section, hiding between books on World War II.

Aghhhhhh

And it’s worse on computers because when you go looking for a specific file, all you see is Document 1, New Document, Document 1(2), Monthly Report, and so on. Then you have to open up dozens of files to find the one that you’re looking for. Another hour wasted.

But it doesn’t have to be that way. If you’re ready to save time – and avoid frustration – when you’re working, let’s get together and talk about how to make it happen through document organizing.

A computer crash doesn’t have to mean losing it all

Mimzy on the hunt for her next lizard

I’m scared of lizards. Those little gecko type lizards that bake in the sun doing their little lizard push ups. It’s not that I think they’re evil, it’s just that they move so fast. One minute they’re across the room, the next minute they’re climbing over your foot.

Eeeek!

And to make matters worse, my youngest cat loves bringing them in from outside. She’ll strut in with one hanging out of her mouth, trying to track me down so she can show off her prize. Somehow she’s always surprised when mommy shrieks and shoves her back outside.

Because lizards scare me.

That fear is there with computers too. You know those moments. Those times when your computer hiccups and you have this complete panic because your entire life is on that computer and what if it crashes? What if it locks up and won’t let you back in?

No more pictures of your cats, no more business forms, and goodbye to all those pre-written blog posts.

*shivers* Just the thought gives me the heebie jeebies.

You don’t have to live with that anxiety, though. Let’s get together and talk about how to squash the fear of losing your documents in a computer crash or unfortunate accident.
