Life in Jeneral // Jen Robin
Life in Jeneral is a professional organizing company that de-clutters your work and home, one project at a time. Jen and her helpers are angels on earth, who will transform your space into the glowiest, most orderly zone possible. A life-changing experience!!
Life can be chaotic and tends to get a bit messy over time, and that's where Life in Jeneral comes in. We could all use a bit of help getting organized, as it's quite a big and overwhelming task to get started. Jen and her team know that time is precious and it's tedious to get your life in order, so they offer comprehensive organization in all areas of your home and/or office space.
Like Jen, we believe a stress-free, healthy and happy lifestyle begins from the inside out. So, Jen's goal is to help you live your best life by purging distractions and clutter. She helps you simplify your space and create sustainable organizational methods uniquely tailored to your personal needs. No task is too big or too small for their team!
She first assesses your space and then comes in with her team to clean everything out, starting from scratch so they can intentionally and thoughtfully rebuild from square one. Jen totally revamped both of our closets, and we truly feel that our lives have been changed. We feel lighter in every sense of the word and can function much more efficiently and seamlessly in our homes. Now, every item has a specific place, and we feel compelled to keep it that way!
Founder and beautiful #glowgirl Jen Robin mastered the art of to-do lists, time management, and efficient systems in her previous job as a celebrity executive assistant. She began changing lives professionally by putting organizational communication into real world practices and personal situations. For Jen, high degrees of organization and personal commitment are fundamental to her core.
After realizing the impact her systems had on one individual's life, she realized she wanted to spread her knowledge and change the lives of many by eliminating stress and clutter. Life in Jeneral was born in 2014 to fulfill a lifelong passion of bringing joy to those around her through the tools of organization, and you can really feel the joy and satisfaction that this work brings her. She is an absolute pleasure to work with, and you can count on her to be positive, professional and efficient, always available to answer any questions or concerns. Jen even takes care of selling your give-away pile after the organizing process (she'll send you a check once everything sells and donate whatever doesn't to charity), leaving you with a clean house and nothing to worry about! We cannot recommend Jen and her service highly enough and are so grateful that our paths crossed with this earth-angel.

TOP 3 ITEMS YOU ALWAYS HAVE IN YOUR KITCHEN? Wine (duh), apples, and Perfect Bars - always!
WHAT IS YOUR FITNESS REGIMEN? When I am having a great workout week it’s 5-6 times a week. I love Soulcycle and am currently doing Kayla Itsines' 12 week program (game changer!)
WHAT IS YOUR SKINCARE ROUTINE? Whatever my facialist gives me as I am pretty allergic to most products. All natural is usually my best bet.
WHAT IS YOUR SELF-CARE ROUTINE? To be honest, it wasn’t until I hit 30 where I realized it was a must to have one. Taking full days off and resting is my biggest self-care thing I can do for myself.

MOST PROFOUND H'EALING EXPERIENCE YOU’VE EVER HAD? I recently got baptized last year and that experience has meant the most to me. I spent the entire last year solely focused on me, my business, and my heart. I've grown the most this year, both personally and professionally.
WHAT IS THE BIGGEST LEARNING EXPERIENCE YOU’VE HAD TO FACE AND WHAT DID YOU TAKE AWAY FROM IT? My Dad passed away 7 years ago and I remember thinking “will I ever survive this?” It was a few weeks later when I realized I had a choice to make.
