- Clea Shearer & Joanna Teplin
This power lady duo consists of two California transplants mummies, who currently live in Nashville, Tennessee. If the love at first sight idea is not your thing, what about business partners at first text?! That’s exactly what happened when those two women met and the rest as they say is history, in this case - a million dollars worthy one.
At first sight, Clea and Joanna are two ordinary housewives with shared passion for Pumpkin flavored everything, yellow cake with chocolate frosting, morning walks, Andy Cohen and White hydrangeas. What they didn’t know then is that soon their idea of having fun, which we can totally relate to and mainly consists of Coffee in the AM and Champagne in the PM, will include drinking with A-class Hollywood celebrities.
Business or pleasure… Why not both?! For The Home Edit only sky seems to be the limit.
At first, the power duo had only one plain goal - to reinvent traditional organizing, and merge it with design and interior styling. Simple as that.
Apparently, when you do what you love with passion and find your perfect partner in crime - you’re destined to succeed and as proven by the case of The Home Edit, we’re not talking simply about gaining money or recognition, but counting A-listers like Mandy Moore and Reese Witherspoon as clients.
We’re not stopping here. Those two ladies have a fan base of 1.4m followers on Instagram and counting (yes, Gwyneth Paltrow Is their follower and fan), they are among the New York Times’ best selling authors, staying on top in their category, with the debut book The Home Edit: A Guide to Organizing and Realizing Your House Goals, and have amazingly loaded an online shop, where you can find literally everything you need in order to turn your home in a breathtaking designer perfection.
And we’re not even gonna put the full stop here. Last spring, Clea Shearer and Joanna Teplin appeared in Reese Witherspoon’s YouTube channel, as hosts of the first season of their own show. Master the Mess turned into a hit, and the other thing we know is that the two lovely ladies behind The Home Edit will be the hostesses of a Netflix series. The information was confirmed last summer and we’re eager to find out when the airing date will be because those two inspiring and charming women deserve to be on the small screen worldwide.
If The Home Edit has taught us one thing (except from making our homes worthy for celebrities, ofcourse) it is that sometimes the things that reality can offer are bigger than what you’ve ever dared to dream of.
- Kathryn Doitonadime
For a woman who seems to dislike popularity (Kathryn never made her last name known to the public), this lady has the enviable 1.28M subscribers on her YouTube channel called Do it on a Dime.
In Kathryn’s own words, her mission is to
lead a beautiful, organized lifestyle on a frugal budgetand she is here to show us how a woman can live her life on a dime with a great sense of style.
According to her Instagram, (where the influential vlogger in the world of house cleaning has over 151k followers) Kathryn is a Youtuber and mommy, who manages to live a tremendous, organized life and on a tight budget.

- Megan Hickman
Meghan Markle and Megxit in general may be among the top trending topics on the Island these days but when we talk about House Cleaning Royalties, there’s another Megan you should keep your eyes on.
Love Meg has nearly half a million subscribers on YouTube (479K subscribers to be precise) and 104k followers on Instagram. This charming mother believes that
being genuine is a vital skill for any creatorand considers it to be her strongest quality.
Viewers want to be entertained, but more importantly, they want to feel a connection to you!says Meghan and that is among the reasons why she named her channel Love Meg - to make her videos sound like personal, honest love letters to all of her future subscribers.
In case you wonder, Meghan’s journey in becoming a social media star began 4 years ago, when the stay-at-home mom with two toddlers was among the many looking for a way to help her family make the two ends meet, leading a simple life out of necessity due to her husband’s low salary.
The video sharing platform was among the few things which somehow managed to motivate this charming lady and soon she found herself watching one influencer’s channel every single day (in this case the personal motivator was beauty vlogger Anna Sacconne and her body positivity videos). Megan could so easily relate to Anna’s life that she found herself inspired to start her own channel, which was among her greatest life choices ever.
When the young mother started to create her content, the cleaning trend wasn’t a thing (yet) and being cleanfluencer definitely wasn’t her exact idea at the time - a few years later though, we are the living witnesses of a newly found career path with promising outcome.

“She got up in the mornings and performed heroic deeds, simply by just doing what needs to be done” — YALL!!! We are freaking heroes! Feel that for a minute! Did you take care of little people today? Help your husband? Work? Show people love? Rest? (the list could go on). Doesn’t matter what it was! It needed to be done and YOU did it! You’re a hero! To yourself and so many! Take a min to put your hand on your heart and breath that in and really feel it! Because truth is, we are way too hard on ourselves so much of the time and we are neglecting to see how powerful “just doing what needs to be done” is! 💙 #homemaker #homemaking #cleaningmotivation #georgiablogger #savannahblogger #gablogger #mamaoftwo #motherhoodinspired #youtuber #lovemeg #lovemegpreset
In an interview for Tubelifter, Megan stated that her first ever YouTube paycheck was for the humble amount of $15 and her first sponsor offered her $50 to promote some small battery-operated tea light candles - we can only assume how many zeros were added to this sum since then.
The first relatively big gig and really tough choice that Megan had to take, was a brand offer for $150, which wanted the gaining social media rising star to promote their clothing.
As Meg recounts
At the time, this was the most any brand had paid me, and $150 was a lot of money to us. I received the products and hated them. I was at a crossroads: promote the products that I honestly wouldn’t wear, or lose the money. I chose to be honest with my viewers and turn the deal down. I’ve had to do that a few times since then, and even though the viewers don’t always know this happened behind the scenes, I think they know I am genuine when I do speak about a product.
Her honesty gained the promising influencer even more subscribers and followers and she is still true to her natural charm and does all of her editing alone, although now Megan’s personal team consists of more than 4 people.
The stay-at-home mum has always had the desire to truly live the entrepreneurial American Dream life and has never been so close to making that wish come true.
The ambitious lady has started another channel reflecting her personal, everyday life with her family, called Hanging out with the Hickmans and we can assure you that we would take this over Keeping up with the Kardashians by any means.
Megan’s vlogs cover a huge variety of topics: marriage, babies, beauty, food, fashion, home décor, beauty, product reviews and anything else that sparkles Meg’s interest and creativity - so stay tuned to find out what’s next and feel motivated to turn your place into a home that would be fit for a royalty.

- Nicola Lewis
We’ve saved the last entry on our list for a relatively new rising star in the fascinating, promising world of the cleanfluencers, and she is followed only by the modest 127k people on Instagram.
We’ve already met you with probably the most stardom clenafluencer out there - the Beyonce of home organising - Marie Kondo, but today we’re about to tell you the story of the UK’s answer to this lady - the Decluttering Guru - Nicola Lewis.
Nicola Lewis, known as the founder of This Girl Can Organise or simply TGCO is among the many who praise cleaning, organising i.e. maintaining your home in good shape in general, as a great tool against depression and anxiety, and as a certain way to improve your mental wellbeing.
Although a clean environment won't necessarily solve all your problems, it can have an enormous impact on your emotional wellbeing and outlook, and make all the difference to your life, writes Nicola in her book Mind Over Clutter.
The ultimate guide to decluttering your home in a fun, sustainable and meaningful way is among the top 30 books on Amazon in the sections dedicated to Interior Design Styles & Decor and Home Improvement Household Hints.
The step-by-step, room-by-room plan to get rid of clutter, features dozens of helpful housework tricks, a bunch of recipes for natural, eco-friendly cleaning products and tips on upcycling your household items, promising that your home will be spick, span and sparkling in a matter of minutes i.e. this is the perfect book to refer to whenever you need help to tidy up your life.

Morning everyone....it's day 21 of the TGCO mind over clutter challenge and today's task is probably very close to you right now! . Day 21 - Bedside drawer ✨ . How many of you open your bedside table and glance inside at the sea of mess? 😬 today’s the day you’re gonna get it sorted and into ship shape!!! Now my bedside table brings me so much calm and satisfaction it’s another attraction of getting into bed early🙌🏻 . Its home to all the things that keep me cosy, calm, relaxed, happy and ready for bed! Such as bed socks, ear plugs, aromatherapy oils, book, note pad, eye mask, nail file, hand cream and some ear phones (to block out the teenagers 😂) I just love getting into bed of an evening knowing everything I need before bed is organised and in one place🥰 . If you’re struggling on how to manage this space then check out this TGCO top tip....🛏 by introducing small containers into this space you can start to give your bedtime rituals a home...I love to reuse ferrero rocher tubs as they are clear, not to deep, they have lids and make excellent FREE organisers inside drawers...✨ . Remember only house the important stuff, Have a fab day and good luck✨ . PJ’s are @nextofficial (not a gift) . #bedsidetable #bedside #bedroomdecor #declutterchallenge #everythinginitsplace #tidy #home #thinkbeforeyoubuy #reusereducerecycle #reuserecycle #improvementalclarity #smallsteps #motivation #mentalhealth #tgco #mindoverclutter
The whooping story of this cleanfluencer started in a rather unexpected way - by spending fifteen years in Investment Banking and three years in the private aviation industry.
Those were the high-pressured fields where Nicola first started putting her
super powered organisational skills to their absolute limits. But then back in 2017 this woman of many talents was made redundant from her corporate job in the city and decided that it was about time to do what she loves the most and work for herself.
TGCO, which started in March 2017, obviously was the right solution. The mother of two chose to bravely leap into the unknown and trade off her job as an investment banker to start her own Decluttering & Organising Company, successfully turning her hobbies and skills into a flourishing business helping others get and stay organised.
In an interview for Disco Kids, Nicola said that the thing about her new job she loves the most is:
watching my client’s reactions once the job is done, it truly is the main reason why I love doing my job. Creating a new space that they couldn’t vision by themselves or just helping them clear an area they struggled to do alone is very emotional.
It’s good to know that if the organising guru has to pick just one essential home maintenance tip, it would be to always write the things we wish to achieve down and slowly tick them off - remembering than even one tick is better than none.
Among TGCO’s many Instagram fans we can find some with the status of celebrities - the British television and radio personality Zoe Ball, reality star Gemma Collins, TV presenter Katie Piper and the actress Lisa Riley - just to name a few.
Nicola Lewis describes her company as
A bespoke and personal streamlining service for busy people and homesas she has made it her mission to help people improve their living space and life altogether.
According to Nicola, "This Girl Can Organise" is all about keeping it fun, friendly and real, laying on the strong belief that small steps and plenty of encouragement is what we need to be motivated and inspired to handle whatever our busy schedules and over occupied lifestyles throw at us.
In the same interview, the professional home organiser said that what she plans to do next is to film more YouTube videos and she would love to work on her own tv show.
We already know that this passionate lady can do whatever she wants" so stay tuned and probably sooner or later we will be able to enjoy Nicola Lewis’s original series on the small screen.
