Changing Places Turns 25!

I only have one 25th anniversary, so please indulge me as I tell a short story about realizing my American dream.

 In 1991, I arrived in Marin County from Philadelphia with a huge ego having run wildly successful businesses in the Catering & Special Events industry. I quickly realized it wasn’t WHAT I knew that mattered in California, but WHO I knew that made a difference in my new life.

I had only three friends when I arrived in California, and thanks to their warm and welcoming hospitality I got a start, cleaning houses. It took two tough, long years to get my footing: my new car blew up and I went bankrupt over a small amount of money. My morale and integrity were devastated.

Out of these ashes rose the phoenix that became “Rent A Wife”: I began doing housekeeping, catering and errands, and home organizing. In my first year I was “rented” by a great guy from GE Capital to help with his move from SF to NYC. I was honest and told the client I’d never done this before, but I had just moved myself here. The move project turned out to be very complicated, hugely challenging yet very fun and successful. Finally, I’d found something that I loved to do and turned that project into what became a promising new business.

“Rent-A-Wife” was going really well when a business coach told me in front of 350 people that the name of the company made me sound like “a lady of the night.” The group voted that I should change my company name. After much soul searching, I chose Changing-Places, Inc. Owning this business has rarely ever been easy and in 1996-97, during my first bout with breast cancer, I tried to sell the company. Thank heaven I didn’t find a buyer.

Today, I am very proud to say that my Changing Places team are my family. We have 25 “crew members” – some who have been here since the very early days. They serve Changing Places with many talents that far exceed my expertise. I owe all of those people, past and present, the glorious success that we are today. Also, Changing Places wouldn’t be where it is without our clients, realtors, vendors,partners, and friends who’ve supported us along our journey. I say it often: “we create miracles every day.”

Thank you all for being a part of my success and my story. God Bless America!
