We had the good fortune of connecting with Jenny Dietsch and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Jenny, where are your from? We’d love to hear about how your background has played a role in who you are today?
Where are you from, and how did your background and upbringing impact who you are today? Raised in Los Angeles, California, the daughter of a successful real estate broker, I have been looking at beautiful houses, showing houses, and staging houses for as long as I can remember. My mother always helped her clients get their homes ready to sell, and I was usually along for the ride loving every minute. Fast forward MANY years, and I am now the Owner and Chief Executive Organizer of Getting it Done Organizing. Obviously, I believe in organization, but believe it or not, I have not always been organized. I have ADD, and when I was growing up, no one really knew what ADD was, and it was just not talked about. I was a complete mess. I had no structure. I had no systems. I turned in school assignments late. I was not prepared for tests. I was always running late. I drove my family, teachers, coaches, and friends crazy! I struggled year after year! People were always telling me I was lazy or why couldn’t I just… fill in the blank! It was demoralizing and I was very insecure. Over time, I taught myself to implement systems to keep myself organized. I started using a paper calendar and made lists to organize my commitments and schedule goals. I started to prepare myself for the next day before I went to bed each night. I taught myself how to be organized. The more organized I was, the more things started to change for me. Things clicked for me when I was in college. I went from an average student to getting all A’s. I loved college. I felt confident instead of scattered, and this carried over into all aspects of my life. I learned that I thrived in an environment of structure and organization. Contrary to my belief that doing as I pleased was freedom, I found that organization and structure set me free! Today, I have built a business helping other people find systems that will work for them to simplify their lives, and I love it! Organization is not just for people with ADD, but I highly recommend it! We get no bigger thrill than when we bump into our clients (who usually have become friends!) at the supermarket, and they rave at how the systems we set-up for them are working and making their lives so much easier. “Organize your life so you can get to the fun things about being a mother, wife, and woman!” -executive homemaker
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I look at organizing as an art! It is our goal to create spaces that are both beautiful and functional. If your home is beautiful but does not function well, you will not thrive in your home. This will cause you stress and frustration, and a lack of organization at home affects your productivity at work and can stress your relationships. In my pursuit to blend beauty and function, I attended Interior Design classes downtown. This design knowledge blends with my organizing experience and education to make Getting it Done Organizing one of the favorite organizing teams in the Park Cities! Whether we are helping you with one closet or unpacking your entire home, We will look at your space through the lens of a designer!

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I want to give a Shout Out to Julianna LeBlanc from @juliannaleblancdesigns and Courtney Bono from @scoutandcellar (www.scoutandcellar.com/courtneybono). Julianna called me two days after Christmas 5 years ago with 3 small kids and a newborn and insisted that I come over right then to organizer her playroom. She would not take no for an answer. Doing this job gave me the confidence I needed to jump in and start this business. Courtney was also an early client of mine. She trusted me to organizer her closet while she was at work and then shared photos and her testimonial all over social media! I am grateful to both of these amazing working moms and friends of mine for helping me get past my fears and “Get it Done!”
