Julie is the author of the classic tomes ORGANIZING FROM THE INSIDE OUT and TIME MANAGEMENT FROM THE INSIDE OUT, both of which have been developed into popular specials for PBS. Julie and her teenage daughter, Jessi Morgenstern-Colon, co-authored ORGANIZING FROM THE INSIDE OUT FOR TEENS. Her workplace productivity and work-life balance tome, NEVER CHECK E-MAIL IN THE MORNING, is now the basis of a popular training program conducted for the Fortune 500 and businesses worldwide. Julie’s latest book, SHED Your Stuff, Change Your Life takes her message to a new level, showing people how to use the process of decluttering to ‘get unstuck’ in their lives. Beyond books, the core principles of her organization and time management philosophies are made tangible through the Julie Morgenstern Collection of organizers, totes, and leather accessories. The line was designed in partnership with FranklinCovey, to provide intelligent organizing tools for the way people really live.
The National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO) honored Julie with its prestigious Founder’s Award in 2002 for her significant contributions to the professional organizing industry. She served actively on the Board of Directors for NAPO for many years and is also a member of The National Speakers Association (NSA).
Julie’s background in the theatre as a director, producer, and performer provides the foundation for her work as an Organizer. She believes organizing requires the same set of skills as directing/producing — an appreciation of spatial design, the ability to see the big picture as well as the tiny details, and the talent to blend psychology and practical skills to guide people where they want to go.
Her education includes a BA in Theatre from Temple University and graduate studies in Directing at the Goodman School of Drama. Julie lives in New York City.
