Meet Jane Stoller – a Swiss-Canadian life-biz organizer, speaker, author and university instructor whose passion is in decluttering spaces and organizing business processes. Jane wrote her first book in 2016 to help friends get more organized. It ultimately gained international attention, and this allowed Jane to turn her passion into a profitable business, Organized Jane.
Jane’s love for organizing began on a small farm in Seeley’s Bay, Ontario, Canada, where she grew up. As a young girl, she was often found happily lining up her cats by size, her stuffed animals by color, and her parent’s books by publication date. Soon, friends began turning to Jane for guidance on how to part with cluttered sentimental items.
Stoller’s global reach has helped thousands gain clarity and get organized with her critically acclaimed books, Organizing For Your Lifestyle: Adaptable Inspirations from socks to suitcases and Decluttering for Dummies (Wiley Publishing), and through her Business Booster Course. Stoller and her sought-after decluttering expertise, products and books have been featured on numerous international talk shows, podcasts, and magazines.
With a proven track record in both lifestyle and business decluttering, Jane has spent the last decade helping people become better versions of themselves. What makes Jane’s organizing approach unique is her holistic method and warm personality. She starts by redefining a client’s home and continues at the office – or vice versa.
“My goal is not to turn someone’s home into a magazine perfect image, it is not sustainable,” says Stoller. “I work around a client’s specific lifestyle, or an aspect of their life they want to focus on, and develop a custom organization system from there. The end result? Reduced stress, increased productivity and happiness.”
When Stoller sets down her pen and paper, she puts on her teaching hat. Stoller lectures at Vancouver Island University in Canada for part of the year, helping students learn management skills.
Prior to launching her organizing business, Stoller received both a Masters in International Business from the University of Hertfordshire, and an MBA from Vancouver Island University. She went on to work for the largest cement company in the world, which allowed her to live all over North America and Europe.
Stoller is currently writing her third book, teaching, working with individual clients, and can be found at various speaking events.
Jane also aims to give back to businesses and organizations in her local communities through her passion for education. She is doing pro-bono work for ONE TO ONE, A Children’s Literacy Program, by helping them restructure and improve their internal processes, and assisting indigenous children with their schooling on Vancouver Island and the Sea to Sky corridor.
In her spare time Stoller enjoys spending time with family and skiing in Whistler, British Columbia, Canada, where she currently resides.
