About Spark Joy Jax
Welcome to Spark Joy Jax of Jacksonville, Florida. I'm Elizabeth Reed, a Certified KonMari Consultant, and life coach. I have two service offerings to help you find what sparks joy in your life and together we will work toward your ideal lifestyle.
One service I offer is organizing using the KonMari Method. I'm the only Certified KonMari Consultant in Northeast Florida. I trained in person under Marie Kondo, the originator of the KonMari Method. I help you declutter your space so that everything in your home or office sparks joy and supports your ideal lifestyle.
The other service I offer is life coaching. I have tools and resources to help you with finding what gives you joy in your career, health, and relationships. I can work with you to define what's important to you and help you set up action plans that are fully in sync with your values.
Here's my story: I was a tidy child. I was that little girl who has her books alphabetized and all her dolls lined up on a shelf. As life grew busier, though, with a family and pets and a full-time job, chaos crept into our home. Looking back, I can see how we let clutter accumulate throughout our house during that time.
After my kids left for college, I had time to think about the life I wanted to build for myself. I listened to the audiobook version of The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo when I was on the five-hour drive to see my youngest daughter at her school. It was transformational for me! When I got home, I sorted through my clothes, books, papers, miscellaneous items, and sentimental items, asking the question, "Does this spark joy?"
Once I was done with the tidying festival, I started asking this about other areas of my life. My suburban house itself didn't spark joy. I rented it out and moved into a funky urban loft. My corporate accounting job didn't spark joy. I resigned and started to look for an encore career that sparked joy for me.
The first thing I thought of was KonMari Consultant. The KonMari Method of organizing had been so empowering for me, I thought it would be fantastic to share it with others. Unfortunately, there weren't any consultant training sessions planned. My next idea was business coaching. I tried this out with a client and found that as a CPA, I had something to offer a client in understanding finances, but I needed training. I enrolled in coach training with iPEC, which stands for Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching. The training is fantastic! Meanwhile, the very day that I was driving to Miami for the first intensive coach training session, I received an email from KonMari Media that a KonMari consultant training session would be held soon. I hesitated but decided to do it. I went to San Francisco for the training, which was conducted in Japanese by the adorable Marie Kondo and one of her associates. Every statement and question was translated from Japanese to English and back again. We learned detailed tips for sorting each category of items, as well as how to listen effectively and how to start our business plans. I met lovely, joyful consultant trainees from the USA as well as Canada, Mexico, Poland, Denmark, Germany, and Australia. I learned that the desire to have a space that supports us is universal! I have so much to offer clients as a result of the iPEC and KonMari training I've received.
As a KonMari consultant in training, I can help you decide what to keep. Together we will make a lovely home for you and those things that spark joy in your life. Letting go of things that don't spark joy can be difficult due to attachment to the past and fear of the future. I provide emotional support and guidance as you progress.
As a coach, I have tools and resources to help you imagine your ideal lifestyle in a broader sense and empower you to move toward your dream life.
For organizing, I offer a $75 consultation where we will discuss the process. You will create a vision board that will help you visualize your ideal lifestyle, and we will plan how to proceed.
