Facebook Groups take a bad rap for being a time-waster… and it totally can be.
But how do you actually use them well as a part of your marketing strategy? When used effectively, Facebook groups can be a great way to help grow your business both online and locally.

About Monique Horb:
Monique Horb has a passion for helping women who are busy, tired, and overwhelmed. She does this by organizing homes and paper piles so that women can be more productive, have time and energy to live their purpose, and live the life they want. She loves to say, Life Is Easier Organized!
She began her business, Organizing Your Chaos, after experiencing depression, bankruptcy, adoption, marriage and medical crisis. These things were out of her control, and her home was falling apart. Through twists and turns, she learned that with an organized home she was able to manage.
Monique was raised in southwest Michigan and graduated from Taylor University, a Christian college in Indiana, with a BA in Sociology & Psychology. She met her husband through a friend while working at Spring Hill Camps in Michigan. They have been married for twenty-five years and have six children, two dogs and a cat. Her life experiences have pushed her out of her comfort zone and shaped the business that she created.
She loves to coach women in not only organizing their homes, but organizing their lives. She knows that the simple (yet difficult) act of getting your home organized gives hope to move forward and do what God has created them to d. Hope propels us forward, gives confidence, and allows changes to happen. This changes lives.
When asked, “How do you do it?” she responds, “I get up and get dressed.”
She believes that being willing to take off the mask, ask for help and work hard, alongside a faith in God, has changed her life. She continues to help women change their lives, and shares that we are all better when we are in community together.
