“Deborah Gussoff saved our anniversary trip.”
“The last time we traveled out of town — an overseas business trip followed by our first cruise – we turned off our cell phones, computers and pushed home maintenance to the back burner. Did I really want to be thinking about taxes and the mortgage while sailing on the Adriatic Sea?
“Intelligent, calm, kind, and secure, Deborah took over paperwork responsibilities while we were away. She paid the bills, managed the insurance, and organized our paperwork into files we could review upon returning from close to a month away from home. She’s a troubleshooter who has the memory of an elephant and most importantly our complete trust.
“Not only did she manage the bills. She ensured that our health insurance forms were filed regularly, clearly, accurately for the multitude of medical issues in our family. In fact, Deborah is an expert in health insurance issues. She entered my life more than five years ago when I was drowning in bills related to a serious illness and from a child’s medical problems. It’s hard enough to take care of yourself when you’re trying to recover from surgery, let alone focus on the numerous medical providers whose bills show up at your door in obscure and often indecipherable ways.
“Thanks to her help, we recovered more than $10,000 owed to us in insurance. Armed with her sturdy packs of labels, staples, and tools I’ve never seen in Staples, she sorts it all out and logically figures out how to solve the problems at hand.
“She recently flagged an auto insurance problem that had begun to adversely impact one of our family member’s credit rating. The auto insurance had not paid a $3,000 bill for hospitalization because, it turns out, the insurance company had not yet gotten a tax ID number for the out-of-state hospital.
“All I can say is good job, Deborah. And thank you!”

Every time the doorbell rang, I was worried that it was the Fire Marshall, coming to shut me down, declaring my office a safety hazard. The piles of bills, magazines, catalogs, school bulletins and forms seemed to be reproducing. Then I met Deborah. I was her greatest challenge. Now, everything is color coded and filed. Ta-da! My creditors, husband and children are stunned. Deborah is my secret weapon.

I take pride in the fact that I am an organized person. However, Deborah revised my filing system in ways too obvious for me to consider, especially with my busy schedule. She is the efficiency specialist and anyone could surely benefit from her services.

Deborah was one of a few organizers I had interviewed to help me deal with integrating my office into my already existing home office. I chose her to work with because I sensed she had the best combination of professionalism and warmth. Professionalism because my files are terribly important, warmth because issues around clutter and getting organized are personal by nature and I felt it would help to work with someone that could be emotionally supportive as well. I was able to get all my papers in order after a few scheduled appointments. Much like an exercise coach she got me through the task I had procrastinated and resisted, of going through the paper that had accumulated and been causing increasing amounts of stress as the piles got thicker. With a solid organizing system as a parameter, and a professional and warm manner, Deborah helped me create a home office where I can retrieve information quickly and without the stress of ‘now where is the x?’.

When I was told that I would be moving from my office of 10 years to a cubicle I have to admit I felt a little overwhelmed! I had files upon files and a long history of event scripts, contracts, agendas, ad journals, programs, invoices etc. I didn’t know where to begin. Deborah helped me every step of the way! I didn’t realize how much I had kept that was not necessary. Now I have a sense of peace and feel clutter-free. She is fantastic and pleasant and easy to work with. I never knew how much I needed this help until we started the process. We worked together side by side and not once did she ever judge or criticize. She was patient and sensitive… I highly recommend her!! She came in with a fresh perspective on how to put and keep things in order!! She even inspired me to organize my home files!!!
