We had the good fortune of connecting with Jenn Campo and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Jenn, what inspires you?
My greatest inspiration is real people and their authentic stories. I love getting to know my clients and hearing their stories, and I am so inspired by other women who are doing great things in my community. I’ve never been very star struck or obsessed with celebrities, or fame at all. I think every day people are the most fascinating, and I love hearing where they have been and how they got to where they are. In my business, I often get on a real personal level with my clients, and it is part of the reason I love what I do. I truly am inspired every day by every day people I get to meet.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
This past year has made me especially grateful and proud of my team of professional organizers. Without them, I would not be able to help our clients in the way that we do. We are really making an impact in the lives of everyday families. My team has inspired me and helped me carry in through the difficult covid lockdowns. When I started adding to my team, it was scary and uncertain territory. I took a leap of faith adding 6 organizers to my team, and we are still goring. I don’t know what I would do without them! With a team of organizers, we are able to take on large projects and what would be overwhelming tasks for someone without the time and energy to get organized and create a functional space for themselves. When we come in, we simplify the lives of our clients by taking this big task off their plate, giving them the precious gift of time, and the peace of mind to live peacefully in a space that brings them calm.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Being a Colorado Springs native and self-certified foodie, I would not have trouble entertaining a friend in this beautiful place I call home. I would probably start out with a healthy breakfast at one of my favorite spots like Garden of The Gods gourmet or Over Easy. Then take in the gorgeous landscape an big blue skies with a hike in Garden of the Gods or Cheyenne Canyon, maybe even a mountain bike ride, then relax on an outdoor patio, maybe the Bar at Broadmoor with dinner at the nearby Hotel with has many amazing restaurants. My personal favorite is the Italian restaurant at the Broadmoor. Then we could do a little people watching around the pond, and retreat for a nightcap at one of the breweries downtown. There is so much to do in our wonderful city, and if you love the outdoors, craft brews, and good food, there is an abundance of places to check out. I am looking forward to the opening of the Switchbacks stadium downtown, and I love to visit the new Olympic and Paralympic museum. The view of Pikes Peak never gets old.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My mother was my number #1 fan and supporter and unfortunately ethyl I lost her a few years ago. I’m lucky to have a few very close friends who believe in me and inspire me to keep going. One of my best friends in the reason I started this business. She showed me the need for my expertise and passions in everyday peoples lives, even before I knew this industry was ” a thing”. I have great relationships with other professional organizers around the country that inspire me and encourage me everyday. Sometimes they don;’t even know it. I always say that we have an opportunity every day to inspire someone’s life, even if we don’t know it. Someone is always watching us.
