Getting organized is not an easy task…unless you’re Leslie Jacobs. With a knack for knick-knacks (as in “put in a curio cabinet!”), and an inability to contain her love of containers, Leslie is the master of her organizing domain. Leslie has owned the professional organizing company Les is More since 2001. In the years that she’s been helping others achieve order in their lives, she has accomplished what takes others decades to do. In addition to several mentions in The Hartford Courant’s Java column, and being quoted for national organizing stories on Entrepreneur.com and MSN.com, Ms. Jacobs has a list (as an organizer, she’s a big fan of lists) of many other career credits. She’s had successful television appearances on The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch (CNBC); Better (nationally syndicated); Better CT (CBS CT affiliate); and many other morning shows. TV credits include The Nate Berkus Show and Fox national News and ABC's morning show.. She’s also appeared on many national radio shows including the Colin McEnroe show, and the Ray Dunaway show. With a dynamic personality and unique approach to a mundane job, Leslie gained national recognition when Guideposts and Parenting Magazine included feature articles about her and her organizing game: Les Mess. When she’s not being featured in magazines, she is contributing her own articles on organizing to publications such as Guideposts, Home Living CT (Hartford Magazine), and her organizing column in The New Britain City Journal and now in the New Britain Herald, The Bristol Press and the Middletown Press. Leslie Jacobs is one of the most in-demand organizers in the country—and now she’s a sought after speaker as well. She has spoken at Colleges, Chamber of Commerce and churches. In 2008, Leslie was let go from her full time job—she turned lemons into lemonade when she wrote the book, Survival in the Unemployment Line which is available and still selling well on amazon.com. Leslie has created the only card organizing game in the world called Les Mess. It encourages children to get organized at an early age while making it fun for them. Her philosophy is that with the right tools and the right attitude, organizing can be enjoyable. In 2011 Les Mess won the Parent Tested/Parent Approved media award.
