Peace of Mind Transitions - Success Stories from SCORE of SE Wisconsin's Free Business Consulting

  1. 1. S C O R E O F F E R S O W N E R P E A C E O F M I N D As Julie Henszey watched older adults in her life struggle with all that goes into making a change in their living arrangements, this certified Life Coach and former librarian who describes herself as “the most practical, organized, logistics-oriented person you will ever meet” saw a business opportunity. Julie knew she had the skills and demeanor to effectively and efficiently assist seniors and their families in navigating the overwhelming and often emotional process of moving from a home where they have lived for many years to a more manageable sized residence. She was soon certified as a Senior Move Manager through the National Association of Senior Move Managers and in 2012 Peace of Mind Transitions LLC was formed. “Hearts are often heavier than boxes on moving day” and through Peace of Mind Transitions, Julie is able to lighten that load. Clients can choose from a variety of transition services from preparing and planning their move to organizing and identifying items to be offered to family, sold or donated. Julie can coordinate packing, moving and cleaning, arrange storage and handle such things as utility transfers and address changes. Although uncertainty is a fundamental part of life, most of us do not welcome it. We find comfort in the space and with the things that we have become accustomed to – even when they no longer serve our needs. In times of major change, making even small decisions can be quite taxing and stressful. It is in those most vulnerable times when a trusted third party can step in to make a difference. Peace of Mind Transitions provides clients with a written pledge to uphold and respect confidentiality throughout the process. Whether it is a cross- country move or a long-overdue reorganization, Julie Henszey understands that change does not have to be hard and through her company’s services, she eliminates the obstacles so her clients can embrace it. After watching their parents go through the process of being moved to nursing homes, a Wauwautosa couple vowed to be proactive when their time came. They recently made the big decision to relocate to another state to be near their daughter but found themselves in a quandary when faced with determin- ing which pieces of furniture would fit into their new independent living apartment. This detail just added to the anxiety that typically accompanies a major life transition. “Everything was so up in the air but Julie came in and helped us solidify everything; she smoothed the entire process by creating a beautiful floor plan of our new space. Now we know exactly what we can take with us and what needs to go before the move. Julie is a charming person, knowledgeable and professional and we so appreciate what she was able to do for us. We recommend her highly.”
  2. 2. Peace of Mind Transitions now boasts a number of similar satisfied client testimonials and Julie is often asked to speak to groups to help them develop strategies to navigate difficult life tran- sitions but even someone as capable and organized as Julie needed help in transitioning to her new role as entrepreneur. And when she did SCORE was there. Julie had heard about SCORE over the years but it was not until she visited the SCORE booth at the BizTimes Expo that she learned about the many resources available and got on their mailing list. “The SCORE workshop offerings are outstanding. They really hit the nail on the head with the topics covered,” she said. “So many of us are starting from scratch; we just don’t have any of this knowledge.” After attending a marketing workshop that she really enjoyed, Julie called SCORE and was paired with mentor Carole Kauss, who consulted with her on marketing ideas and pricing and also validated the steps she had taken to get started. “Carole affirmed that I had my ducks in a row and that I had done things the right way. That meant so much to me. People will save themselves a lot of time and money simply by taking advantage of what SCORE has to offer.” Owning a business is an ongoing learning experience filled with daily challenges – a unique sort of life transition. SCORE volunteers are seasoned business veterans who thrive on helping business owners. As Julie Henszey continues her mission to support her clients, what could be better than for her to receive some peace of mind from SCORE?
