Saya loves sharing her personal and professional experiences and knowledge with others and then helping them apply that information to their own lives. Her offerings are personable, comfortable, and genuine, and she makes unsexy topics perhaps not sexy but at least interesting and helpful.

If you’ve always dreamed of a book that’s 97% how to make life — specifically cleaning — more joyful, 2% memoir, 2% personal therapy, 2% couples therapy, 1% homework, 1% made-up words, 1% TMI, and .01% encouragement to see SIX the musical…
If you’ve always dreamed of a book by an author who isn’t math’y…
This is that book.
Does your home give you anxiety, shame, or stress due to its “dirtiness”?
Do you not invite others over? Fear the “drop-in”?
Overwhelmed when you think about cleaning and thus bury your head in the proverbial sand?
Could you actually out clean the self-proclaimed Sparkle & Shine Queen and just want to lurk in her brain to (authorized) steal ideas and pat yourself on the back cause you “already know that”?
Do you want —
- to exert as little effort or thought as possible on cleaning yet still have a clean home?
- someone you trust to tell you “clean in this order,” “clean this every month,” and “use these products”?
- a-ha moments that’ll change your approach to and result of cleaning?
- insider tips from someone who loves to clean?
- to know how to interact with a cleaning service from someone who has a cleaning service?
- to learn how to make cleaning manageable, part of your routine, and enjoyable even?
- thorough cleaning support but in a lighthearted, non-judg’y way?

If you feel that the state of your home is a hindrance — to confidence, peace, friends, love, focus… — here’s a solution.
Throughout adulthood, Saya has cleaned for fun. Creating those win-win-win scenarios she loves so, she now, businessplanschmissnessplan, also employs a cleaning crew and cleans for money. A fan of making life easy and easier, she’s transformed her knowledge and passion and her affinity for systems and spreadsheets into an actionable, realistic, empathetic blueprint for non-tortuous sparkle & shine.
To ease yourself in, the first activity to get you started cleaning has no cleaning involved. And it’s all “You can do this!” from there on out.
