Are you Making a Move soon? This is the episode to listen to! Jami Shapiro is the owner of Silver Linings Transitions. She is a single mother of three girls, an 11 year thyroid cancer survivor, a community volunteer and a Realtor.
Believing everything happens for a reason, Jami discovered the National Association of Senior Move Managers in 2014. They were holding the national conference in San Diego. She attended the conference, met other Senior Move Managers and knew she'd found the work she was meant to do.
Silver Linings Transitions is a bright spot for people facing difficult transitions AND making a move.
The company specializes in seniors who are downsizing or making a move into senior communities as well as couples going through divorce. As someone's who's faced cancer and divorce, Jami understands personally how important it is to find the “silver lining” when life doesn't go the way we'd hoped. When working with clients through their transition, the Silver Linings Transitions team focuses on what's positive during a difficult time and helps the client navigate through the move as gently as possible.
The most important work we do is helping people with the emotional aspect of making a move.
In this episode Jamie and I talk about:
- The secret of getting 3000 square feet worth of stuff into a 1200 square foot apartment.
- What can I do now if I don’t want to move, but I just have a lot of clutter that I want to get rid of?
- How do you deal with those boxes and boxes of photos?
- What is the difference between a mover and a move manager such as Silver Linings Transitions?
- How to diffuse any needless fighting over belongings and keep the stress level down for everyone.
Be mindful of how much “stuff” you buy. Spend money on experiences rather than stuff.
Spend more time focusing on the present and what you are able to do. Don't worry about the future or the past. Focus on what you can do and not what you can't do. Do something you have never done and always wanted to try.
