EXPOW in StarCreek is a Charity Worth Knowing

EXPOW in StarCreek is a Charity Worth Knowing

What Does StarCreek Need?

ExPow is a charity formed on this question. It’s the one that started it all. What do our neighbors need? Who is in need right now and how can we help? They were simple questions to ask but the impact of the response was and still is incredible.

The core idea is simple. LOCAL people solve LOCAL problems with LOCAL resources, to expand access to *[THE GOOD LIFE] to EVERY person in EVERY community by strengthening, connecting and inspiring LOCAL women to mobilize their community to close gaps in local need.*[THE GOOD LIFE] Living life on their terms -happy, healthy and empowered to do and be whomever they want, surrounded by the unconditional love, respect, and support of their families, friends & communities.

When Ideals Align

When Kelly heard about what these amazing women were doing in the community, she wanted to help. She turned to her team at, The Kelly Pearson Group for help. Her team, just like Kelly, is made up of women and men who each have a strong foothold in their communities. They were instantly onboard as well.

Working with ExPow just seemed natural since the ideals of both companies align together so well. ExPow believes that nothing is more powerful than a determined woman in pursuit of a better life and future for herself and her family, except maybe an army of determined women, united, supported, confident and armed with the skills and connections they need to ignite a spark that leads to action and progress.

The Kelly Pearson Team is a women-owned business. Strong people grow strong communities and we all need to help each other achieve a better life for those around us.

So Kelly and the team started thinking about how the could help. They needed a way to use their business acumen and combine it with their philanthropy in a way that would best serve ExPow. After a while, the team came up with a plan.

 

Hard Work Pays Off

When Kelly and her team closed real estate transactions, they put aside money from each one for ExPow. Their efforts paid off in a big way.

Watch the video below to enjoy the presentation which was so much fun!

The Story of Expow

Allen neighbors Kate Slaughter and Shanna Schiavon met at their kid’s bus stop in 2010. Soon they shared play dates, family vacations and discussions about community and societal struggles. Like many, they were doing what they could to make a difference; grabbing a few friends and volunteering, serving on Boards and committees, planning and attending charitable events and collecting everything from school supplies to prom dresses.

Before long they realized that not only was uniting women for good, fun and fulfilling, it was a recipe for real impact. All they were really doing was connecting the dots – connecting people, programs, charities and resources in their network, to help charitable endeavors. They got to thinking… Could they expand this model to be more impactful? Connect more women, connect more dots? They imagined collaborating with other women to harness and grow all of this goodness exponentially. With this eXponential Power of Women, EXPOW was born.

When women care about something, we tell a few friends, who tell a few friends and before you know it, the exponential power of women is in motion.

Declutter in the New Year to Enjoy Your New Space

Declutter in the New Year to Enjoy Your New Space

Decluttering seems like such a daunting task. It’s overwhelming and, for many of us, sounds about as much fun as giving a lion a dental check up sans tranquilizer. It really doesn’t have to be though, if it’s done right. ,The new year is just around the corner and while we’re not saying you should declutter a home between now and 2022. We’re saying use 2022 as the time you start now to get your space into the shape you want it to be.

It’s so important that the space you live or work in feels good to you!

Here are seven simple hacks to declutter you space. The secret? They’re simple and can become a part of your daily life instead of some overwhelming task you have to plan for and dread.

Seven Decluttering Hacks

No. 1 Take Out the Trash

Grab a trash bag and just walk through the space throwing away anything broken, damaged or actual trash.

No. 2 Think Small

Cardboard boxes can take up a lot of space, so removing them changes the way you view a room, After that, pick one small area to tackle, like a drawer, in order to ease yourself into the work.

No. 3 Out with the Old..

Whenever you bring a new item (especially clothing) that you buy many of into the house, you make a rule to throw out an old piece of the same kind of item. How do you know which item to chuck? Here are some questions to ask yourself.

  • Do I use this regularly?
  • Occasionally?
  • Seasonally?
  • Annually?
  • Will I ever use this again?

No. 4 1,2,3 Go!

This box is for things that you can’t or don’t want to get rid of, but that you aren’t in need of on a day-to-day basis (think things like seasonal decorations). It’s also a good idea to make an inventory of items that you’re putting in storage as you go — that way, you won’t be left wondering what exactly is taking up space in your garage or attic down the line.

  • Do I use this regularly?
  • Occasionally?
  • Seasonally?
  • Annually?
  • Will I ever use this again?

No. 5 A Place for Everything

Finding a proper place for everything and putting everything in their proper place is extremely important. It’s important because you’re important. You’re wellbeing matters. Here are a few benefits (there are many more) to keeping your home organized.

  • More free time to spend doing what you love, with the people you love.
  • Gatherings at home with your family and friends because your rooms and storage space
  • You may not loose items like you used to like: cash, credit cards, keys, valuables, mementos, papers, and more!
  • Smarter inventory management tactics keep you from over-stocking (saving you money)
  • File management systems keep you on track
  • A clear picture of your current kitchen, creative, and closet inventory, help you use your shelves more effectively
  • Peace of mind, and a well-deserved sense of pride that you’ve gotten it done

No. 6 Organize Like Items Together

Naeemah Ford Goldson, a certified professional organizer and founding member of the National Association for Black Professional Organizers (NABPO), owner of Restore Order Professional Organizing in Atlanta, and host of the Organize Me! radio podcast, swears by the Sort, Store, Style approach — tackling organizing in that specific order.

Sort, Store, and Style. This is an approach for tackling organization. The trick is to make what you organize look good. Remove your donate and discard piles “right away, at least within 48 hours after your purge, so you’re not tempted to pull something back out that you’d decided to part. with,” Ford Goldson notes. Then, and only then — when you’re left with what you want to keep — do you get to do the fun part: storing and organizing everything so it’s aesthetically pleasing.

No. 7 Give Yourself Time

Clutter will start to accumulate, even for vigilant homeowners who are consistently tidying up. Rather than letting the clutter frustrate you, accept that it’s normal—and commit to occasional “mini-declutterings” and cleanups (whether that’s once a month or once a year) to keep a mess-free home.
