READ MY STORY
INNOVATOR. STRATEGIST. ORGANIZER
Greetings - again. If you visited our Start Here page, chances are you know a bit about me... So here is the full scoop.
I am Tyra, founder and chief VA and PA of The Posh Organization. Raised in Baltimore (County) Maryland, and now a Georgia Peach - I was always known to keep an impeccably organized 'trapper-keeper" and was the envy of all my friends. As a lover of all things pretty, my room was rarely a mess and I would jump at any opportunity to organize. Throughout my teens, you could find me helping family and friends get organized. My love for organization has played an impact in my life since my adolescence.
I have always recognized my God-given talent and propensity to organize, however, I never thought that my talent was "grand" enough to follow as a career goal or as something that could provide a sustainable lifestyle or, more importantly, be financially rewarding. On the path to figure out what I wanted to be in life, I set out to get my undergraduate degree at Clark Atlanta University in Atlanta, GA! Always the consummate professional, I took on several roles in corporate America. My journey took me from temp to perm and various positions at a Canadian-based Engineering firm while in college, then to a Regional Marketing Coordinator position for a local Traffic Engineering firm after college, to working a few high-end retail positions simultaneously in a down market, only to find myself underpaid, un-appreciated, and unfulfilled. This could hardly be considered a rewarding career. Having spent numerous years catering to the needs of clients, high level executives only to be "dismissed" by my male chauvinist of an employer at a very critical time in my life, that's when I decided enough was enough. It was then that I realized that my skill-set and passion would be more influential in my own company.
"I sought to fulfill the passion in me that was there from the very beginning."
Driven by a clear vision of becoming my own BOSS and believing that my birthright was good enough, The Posh Organization, was born. With my arsenal of skills along with my love and passion for organizing I am able to be creative and thoughtful; tailoring solutions specifically for my clients. I believe that everything happens for a reason, my Bachelor Degree in Business Management and Marketing, B2B, consumer relations, content development, writing and editing, business administration, and time management skills acquired over my many years in corporate America were preparing me to run a company as it should, with genuine love.
Currently, I am working to obtain my certification as a professional organizer (CPO). Somewhat of a perfectionist and type-A personality, everything in my world has its place.. I work tirelessly with individuals, businesses and families. All tasks whether from the most simple to more intricate are managed with diligence, professionalism, confidentiality with a Posh flare.
I help individuals and small businesses increase productivity through daily management and execution of administrative tasks and organization. The rest remains to be revealed in the awesome plan and purpose that The Posh Organization will serve to deliver harmony and balance to homes, offices, and lives around the world.
"My mission in life is not to survive, but to thrive, and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor and some style."
