“What I like most about Lulu is she is efficient and extremely capable of taking on any organizational task. I was a bit concerned that my computer was so overloaded with information that it was going to be very difficult, if not impossible to organize the information in a comprehensible way. Lulu helped me instantly with a plan and a strategy that seemed so effortless. The three biggest benefits with working with Lulu are: she is friendly, intelligent and creative. There isn’t a challenge she isn’t up to tackling. I would highly recommend her to any one looking to organize their life a little better – she is amazing! Thanks Lulu!”

Kelly Muldoon Connect to Patient :


I wanted to let you know  that my session with you was very helpful. Your clarity and your ability to decipher exactly what I needed was truly remarkable. The skills I learned from you have already made my business operate with more ease and flow. And finally the resources which you shared with me will enable me to see my business from a greater viewpoint , allow me to get more organized, and help me position myself towards expansion. Many thanks,”

Larry Cohn, Pre Paid

“I would like to share with you the tremendous benefits I have enjoyed since working with Lulu Miranda of Mercury Organizing Professionals in organizing my home and home office. I thought I was decently organized. Talk about not knowing what you don’t know!! Ms. Miranda did such a nice, life-enhancing and business-enhancing reordering of office and home that it is fun to work from home and live there now. The best part is this: she works in such a nice, informative way that when she leaves it is easy to maintain the order Lulu has helped you create. Her method is not to impose her order on you, but to work with you to create your own highest and maintainable order. Clearly, I love what she does and wish I would have met Lulu years ago.”

Thank you,  Carey Szczesny

“It is with great pleasure that I recommend Elizabeth Miranda (Lulu) for her exceptional assistance in helping me rediscover my closet. My disorganization has undoubtedly been a major source of stress and lack of style in my life. Lulu really listens to me about my current needs and has given me many helpful suggestions. She clearly explains possibilities and helps one make them happen. If you would have seen my closet recently, you would have realized how patient Lulu is. She never judges based on how much “stuff” they have, although my family thinks I have a Carrie Bradshaw addiction! I have some fabulous shoes!!! My family was shocked when they came home and saw my floor. I am not hunting for things any more. I have known Lulu for many years and have seen her strong work ethic and spotless desk at work. Lulu is very professional, easy to work with, has a great attitude, is very patient, is confident in her abilities, and is self-motivated. In fact, I would not want to work with any one else. Thank you so much for your expertise and just being you.”

Cork it!

Did you know that you can recycle Cork? Why? you ask? Not only is it an energy efficient, biodegradable, renewable and sustainable 100 % natural product but because there are 13 billion natural cork wine stoppers sold each year into the world market, and presently they are ending up in landfills.

Cork is a natural, buoyant material and has the ability to absorb and retain up to 9 grams of CO2. It is an important source of CO2 retention.

These recycled corks are used for shoe soles, bulletin boards, place mats, fishing rod handles, building insulation, playground equipment, floor tiles and packaging material.

According to an article posted on the ReCork America website, they have a plan with Whole Foods to accept wine corks in California. So, why not ask your local Whole foods to participate in the same program.

Figuring it out!

I love it when I can figure things out. The best thing is to follow the step by step instructions. Like following a recipe in a cookbook. First you get all the needed ingredients/elements and then you learn from the steps others have already taken. They tested it and know that it works.  I just love it when it actually works. For example; I’ll attempt something unfamiliar and then see what happens when I stick with it even when it gets frustrating. Voila! Presto!Done!

Not sure why some things turn out the way they do, but I guess that is the beauty of the individual the touch.

Moral of the story: If a project seems daunting then break it down to its parts and attempt it step by step. Sure enough it is easy as pie! and you have a finished product that you are proud of.

Networking in person beats a social media avenue any day.

I really enjoy reconnecting with friends on Facebook,  I like posting my photographs as a “slice of life” and telling friends what is going on in my world.  I even recently joined the twitter crew and can be found @mopdscom;  that’s my website address at  But I have to admit that the best way I connect with people is in person.

Neighborhood Networking events in general are comfortable and rewarding ( nice raffles) . This month it was sponsored by Chief O’Neill’s in the Avondale area. The venue is a great Irish bar with a vintage style pub imported from Ireland. The folks are all friendly and service spectacular. Food is great and the garden is especially large.  The event on Thursday- September 16th was filled with a great group of networking people , great food and good conversations.   I am looking forward to the next one.

Real Rainmakers!

Neighborhood Networking and Business by Referral (BBR) did it again! another successful networking night.  In spite of the rain,  it was the largest turnout yet.

The Village Tap is a local tavern in the Roscoe Village area, it has a friendly atmosphere and the food is great.  A big “Thank You” goes out to Michael Greene of the Village Tap for helping make this a successful event.  People were saying how they plan on coming back.  The outdoor back patio has a covered awning used for the shelter in the rain and snow.  The fireplace and heaters make it an all year-round place to go.  This is an added bonus while living in Chicago where there is cold, rain and snow for the most part of the year.

I am looking forward to next month’s NN event in the Avondale area.

Wednesday- September 16, 2009 5:30pm to 8:00pm

Chief O’Neill’s will host September’s event in their beer garden if it is a nice evening or in their back room depending on the weather.
