SCORE

The pace of a busy life and of a personal and work calendar that is constantly full adds stress and anxiety to all of our days. How often do we wish there was a better way to cope with the demands of the every day, to be better prepared to face a world that just will not stop spinning? Well, SCORE Lancaster-Lebanon client Mara Clements is in the business of restoring that sense of inner peace and control in your day-to-day. She has created MoreSPACE – a personal organizing service for home or office that helps you uncover your peace by reclaiming your space.

A compassionate and trustworthy personal organizer, Mara will work with you one-on-one to help you clear out your clutter, organize your belongings, and create an aesthetically pleasing environment for you to live and work in. Sometimes all you need is the motivation to get a project started or the inspiration to help you get the job done. Mara’s professional perspective can help you uncover the why behind your clutter and empower you with the tools you need to set up systems that will minimize stress for you and your family or staff.

Studies have shown that a cluttered space adds to stress and Mara has based her business on releasing that stress for her clients. Earlier this year she reached out to SCORE Lancaster-Lebanon to work on key aspects of her business plan. Mara has been working intensely with SCORE mentor Margot Hoerner in regular monthly sessions.

“I requested a SCORE mentor because I needed help coming up with a price that was reasonable for my clients and that honored my energy, time, and abilities. Margot gave me the steps I needed in order to find the solution and has built my confidence in my pricing and in the services that I have to offer as a result.”  
  - Mara Clements, founder of MoreSPACE

This client-mentor team has developed a warm bond of friendship as Margot guides Mara through the challenges of price strategy, target market development and all the necessary steps for helping a new small business to succeed and thrive.

“Mara is a gentle, soft-spoken, caring individual who is committed to helping improve the lives of others. She has the right personality to do this type of work, as often her clients could be ‘embarrassed’ by their lack of organization or possible hoarding tendencies. She is able to readily put them at ease. My background as an HR professional and Executive Coach has been a great fit for our partnership. What Mara needs is a confidence builder and encourager to get her business off the ground. She feels challenged by situations that may require more persistence or go-get-‘em personality. I feel I have been helpful to her by role-playing conversations and providing talk pieces for difficult conversations around pricing or negotiating for work.”
  - Margot Hoerner, SCORE Lancaster-Lebanon volunteer mentor

As MoreSPACE continues to grow and Mara looks to the future she is making plans to continue to depend on the resources offered by SCORE Lancaster-Lebanon.

“As my business continues to grow, I will need someone to guide me through the steps of building a strong team. I’m looking forward to utilizing more of the workshops SCORE offers as well.”
- Mara Clements, founder of MoreSPACE

In her role as wife, mother, and waver of the organizational magic wand, Mara has reflected on her experience in starting her own small business and on the advice she might offer to others who are organizing to launch their own start-ups and small businesses.

“I probably recommend SCORE to people daily. My mentors have been the most kind, wise, and generous people I have met in the business world. It feels empowering to have a team like that behind you, pushing you forward to try the next big thing. I am so grateful for all the resources, encouragement, and support they provide. “
- Mara Clements, founder of MoreSPACE

So, remember that investing in a personal organizer is the first step toward a peaceful home or office and Mara is standing by, ready to bring your vision of order & tranquility to life.
