Tara Donohue Rudo launched No More Piles in 2002 to help Baltimore’s busy families and small business owners get more organized so they could reduce their stress, save money and have more time for the things they really care about.

Prior to stepping into her entrepreneurial journey, Tara spent over a decade working in various corporate environments, ranging from financial planning and investments to medical offices, staffing agencies and restaurants. This broad experience has given her a unique perspective in developing and implementing simple yet highly effective organization systems for her clients.

Tara believes that work life balance is the rainbow unicorn. Life and work both need our 100% focus. The key is to manage your time and skills to give 100% to each at various parts of the day and week. Her passion is helping clients learn tools and strategies so they can spend quality time on the big rocks in their life and not on the sand.
