Wholly Organized!® LLC
Professional Organizer Marks One-Year Anniversary With Trademark. Professional organizer and Stow resident Lynne Poulton is celebrating the one-year anniversary of her business, Wholly Organized!, in a very special way – by trademarking her logo and business name. The trademark process took eight months to complete, meaning she was just four months into her business when she began. Poulton founded Wholly Organized! with the desire to merge her passion for empowering and helping others with her enthusiasm for creating organized spaces. Wholly Organized! believes that being organized promotes a better quality of life. “Being organized means different things to different people; there is no cookie-cutter strategy that we use. At Wholly Organized!, we focus first on the person, then on the stuff,” said Poulton. Wholly Organized! is way of life for Poulton. With a background in social work, Poulton works with her clients to develop solutions that are tailored to their specific needs. “Helping people get organized is my passion. I am thrilled to be the owner of Wholly Organized! and to be celebrating one year in business. Trademarking my logo and business name was important to me because I believe in my business and plan to make this a lifelong career,” explained Poulton. Lynne began providing organizing services part-time in 2006 as “Organized Spaces by Lynne.” After being a Job Readiness/Soft Skills Training Services Manager for a non-profit for 14 years, Lynne launched Wholly Organized!. She is a member of the National Association of Professional Organizers, where she serves as the Director of Membership for the Ohio Chapter. Through NAPO, she participated in her first “GO (Get Organized) Month” activity with the NAPO Northcoast Chapter, where a group of professional organizers organized the Clothing/Household Distribution Center at the West Side Catholic Center in Cleveland. She is also a professional speaker and the Resident Organizer on WKYC’s “Live On Lakeside.” As a professional organization business, Wholly Organized! works with individuals and businesses to take control of clutter. Wholly Organized! takes the entire client into consideration when tackling any project, using a holistic approach to design customized organizing solutions for someone’s space and life by focusing on their goals, strengths and uniqueness. Poulton will work with the client to determine what items can be thrown away, recycled, donated or sold. For more information about Wholly Organized! or to learn how Lynne Poulton can help you take control of the clutter in your life, visit http://www.wholly-organized.com or contact her directly at 330-858-5886 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Don’t Miss Our Next Lunchinar: “It’s March, and You’re Still Using Windows XP – Now What?” By now you may have heard – effective April 8, 2014 Microsoft will no longer support its most popular operating system, Windows XP. And that’s not all! Office 2003 will be reaching its End of Support on that date, as well. You may well be wondering, “What does this mean to me? Maybe I’m old fashioned, but I’m still using Windows XP and/or Office 2003 and the software seems to be working just fine. What’s going to happen on April 8? Will the software continue to work? Or not? Will I be exposing myself or my company to potential risks if I don’t upgrade? How concerned should I be? What should I do?” Fear not, dear reader, because Simplex-IT is here to answer these and other questions you may have and we’ll even buy lunch to entice you to join us! Don’t miss our next free Lunchinar where we’ll discuss the options and risks if you don’t – or can’t – upgrade your software. You won’t want to miss it!
