SHAUMBRA MAGAZINE: How and when did you find Crimson Circle?

NATALIE: It actually kept coming to me. Geoff and Linda were looking for a housekeeper, and I said no because my schedule is really full. A couple years later it came back, my boyfriend mentioned it and I said no again. Then Michelle Dinu asked again, and I’m like “Okay I guess if this keeps coming back at me, I’ll try it.” And it ended up being like one of the best jobs I’ve ever had! I love it so much!

SM: Why do you love it so much?

NATALIE: It’s just so relaxed and they’re just such great employers. I feel like I can be myself and the vibes here are just so good. I actually love the house. I feel like we’re friends.

SM: What do you do for Crimson Circle?

NATALIE: I started as their housekeeper, so I try to make sure everything is clean and just feels good. Of course, I want Geoff and Linda to be happy, but I have to feel like the house feels happy and clean too, where you walk in and you’re like “Wow, this space just feels so good.”

I also help out at events. I serve food and then I get to sit in and listen, so that’s really cool. I also make sure things are stocked, but mostly it’s the cleaning.

SM: I like how you not only want to make everything clean, but you tune into the house and make sure the house is happy too!

NATALIE: Yeah, he called me a House Healer, I love that! I feel like crying right now, I just love cleaning so much. Some of my dreams are about cleaning and organizing people’s homes. I have pink rags and a pink apron, and I just love all my tools. If I buy a new mop, it’s so exciting! I just love it! (laughs)

SM: What makes you good at this job?

NATALIE: I just really enjoy it. I think would do it for free but thank goodness they pay me! I pay a lot of attention to detail, I fold toilet paper into little roses, I make sure I have the rags that I really love, prop up the pillows, and just take care of a lot of little details. I just feel into what the house needs and what it would like to make it feel more beautiful.

I’ve been cleaning for about 15 years. When I was little, maybe 4 or 5 years old, I actually had a cleaning belt and rags and spray bottles and would pretend to clean my toys (laughs). I’ll probably be cleaning until I retire.

SM: What do you like about the job?

NATALIE: I love everything! They’re so flexible with scheduling, and I like that I can do my own thing and no one has to be here. I’m reliable – I’m always too early (laughs). I just like everything.

SM: Any challenging things about your job?

NATALIE: No, I don’t think anything’s challenging. Well, maybe the construction workers and the mess that they make (laughs). But that’s job security. I really enjoy everything. Oh, one challenge would be mingling with people while I’m working at an event. It’s helping me come out of my shell more and know that I can just be myself and people aren’t going to think I’m weird. Parking duty stresses me out, but I’ve gotten good at it.

SM: Crimson Circle is kind of unusual, what’s it like to work here?

NATALIE: At first I thought it was pretty weird, but I thought “If I’m going to mingle with people I should learn the lingo,” so I started reading their books and listening in on the Shoud webcasts. And the more I read about it and learned, I realized it’s not weird and at all, and it’s really helped me actually feel lighter as a person. I feel like I’ve grown. Other people I talk to think it’s a little weird, but it’s because they don’t know anything about it, so I try to convince them it’s not.

SM: Do you have any hobbies or passions?

NATALIE: This is funny because I didn’t really feel like I had passion. But then the longer I worked here and started getting into the Shouds and the books, I feel like I have a passion just for life in general.

SM: Anything else you’d like to share about yourself?

NATALIE: If you ever walk on a wet floor, don’t make eye contact! (laughs) …
