Exploring Life & Business with Missy Hughes of Missy’s Tidy Solutions

Today we’d like to introduce you to Missy Hughes.

Hi Missy, thanks for sharing your story with us. To start, maybe you can tell our readers some of your backstories.
I started Missy’s Tidy Solutions, a home organization business in November 2020. The circumstances of the pandemic inspired me to start. At the time I was a newly single mother trying to support myself and my two little ones working a restaurant job.

After numerous shutdowns, quarantines, and a huge cut in tips and hours, I was looking for a way to make ends meet. I was not eligible for unemployment aid because for the three years prior, I was a stay-at-home mom. Oof. Something had to be done. With my extra free time, I began to really think about what my natural talents were.

Organizing kept coming to mind. It had always been something I enjoyed and was good at. As an added bonus it was a way that I could really help other people and maybe even make some extra money for my family. That’s when Missy’s Tidy solutions were born.

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle-free, but so far would you say the journey has been a fairly smooth road?
Oh gosh no! My biggest struggle has been dealing with self-doubt.

I’ve had to learn to be really mindful of my thinking. Daily affirmations, motivational podcasts, and having supportive people in my life have been a huge help. The other struggle has been navigating how to run a business, at times it can be very overwhelming especially when you have never done it before.

The an ample amount of info. on the internet, networking with other business owners, and having mentors has been super helpful.

Great, so let’s talk business. Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
Missy’s tidy solutions provide home organizing services and help with packing and unpacking, downsizing, space planning, and arrangement.

We bring serenity to you, to help you regain control of your home or set up a brand new space so you can spend time doing the things you value most. Through our services, we empower busy people to live their best life by making time and space for what matters most.

One thing that sets us apart from other local companies is that after our session together we will perform a complimentary sage smudging to energetically cleanse your space and invite in positive energy.

We’d be interested to hear your thoughts on luck and what role, if any, you feel it’s played for you?
Honestly, I do not think luck has played a part in any of my journeys.

Not sure I really even believe in luck. More than anything I think my struggles and perseverance are what have really played a significant role in my life and business.

Also, getting into therapy and taking care of my mental health has played a HUGE part in my growth. Without those, I am certain I would not be the strong, confident woman I am today.
