Moxie Skills for Empowerment

June 1st, 2019 | By Claudia Moreno

As we hope you read in our blog “Match Made in Heaven – Part II” our Moxie team includes members from a wide range of backgrounds and points in their individual life journeys. From career changers to former stay-at-home moms, all of our Moxies have varying degrees of experience in life.

Yes, we are all here to learn and grow, but a fair number of Moxies are also college students with their own long-term goals. Our in-school Moxies get the work schedule flexibility they need to stay on top of their formal studies while earning money, staying in shape and learning real-world skills that will help them reach their goals.

By “real-world” skills, we’re not just referring to cleaning and household tasks – that’s a given.  Even our Moxies with previous professional cleaning experience are schooled in the “Moxie Way” when they come aboard. We’re talking about learning effective time and home project management skills, multi-tasking and making good judgments, too!

We found one of our college student Moxies, Breona, at our on-campus job-fair booth at Arizona State University where she is enrolled full-time. She was looking to earn some money with a flexible schedule, but she found a lot more. Breona says she loves “the whole dynamic of this company, and its morals and values” and quickly advanced to a Team Lead position after joining us in the latter half of 2018!


Breona’s dream is to own and operate an in-home care-giving business to serve the needs of those who might otherwise be relegated to nursing facilities and she credits Moxie Girl with helping her gain important communication skills. “I would envy the Moxie team if I wasn’t able to be part of it.The name itself is so empowering to me, but more than that, this team feels like one giant family that continuously encourages and supports one another.”

Another of our college student Moxies is Rachel, who was also discovered at an ASU job fair. Rachel is majoring in Justice Studies and has her sights set on becoming a crime scene investigator. Flexibility in schedule was of great importance to Rachel, too, but she was also looking for a supportive team to work with while honing her time-management skills.

Working with Moxie Girl is “having a group of people to boost your positivity and help you in situations you’re not sure how to handle. Having this group to look up to is something I cherish every day.”

Many of our Moxies say one of the most important things they’ve learned is determining what’s “good enough,” because Moxie Girls all tend to want things to be perfect , and in doing so, we know we need to be reasonable. After all, we’ve got schedules to keep!

Does Moxie Girl sound like your kind of tribe? We are always looking for more of “us”, so introduce yourself, please!

Growing With the Moxie Girl Team

March 5th, 2019 | By Claudia Moreno

As a female-founded, owned and operated business, the celebration of International Women’s Day is dear to our hearts. Moxie Girl would like to take time to recognize some of the women most important to US – the members of our Moxie tribe!

What We Share

Each of our Moxies is unique but our commonalities unite us!

First, and obviously, we’re mostly “girls” (hello! it’s in the name…but of course we welcome worthy Moxie “boys” as well!)

Second, we are all looking for flexibility for various reasons and the nature of Moxie Girl’s business allows for that flexibility!

And third, we all desire to be part of a trusted, supportive team – and that can seem hard to come by these days. Moxie Girl holds our core values in high regard and we believe these values are what allows us to BE a trusted and supportive team. We wouldn’t consider bringing anyone into our tribe we felt didn’t share our beliefs about respect, communication, personal development, people first, integrity and trust!

Where Do Moxie Girls Come From?

Well, we wish we could grow them on meticulously manicured trees, but they actually come from a variety of “places” – places in LIFE. For example, our Moxie tribe currently includes college students, moms with school-age kids, career-changers and a few new to the workforce or re-entering after a significant absence. There are all kinds of real-life situations that make joining the Moxie team a great choice! Moxie Girl appreciates your life experience. No matter your background, we believe that if you share our core values, you’ve got something to offer!

Use Your Skills and Learn New Ones!

The care of vacation rentals is an an excellent venue for utilizing your existing household management and domestic engineering skills! Think of it as “turning” a tiny hotel – spotlessly cleaning, handling the laundry and making it guest-ready, right down to the staging.

Moxie Girl loves multi-taskers and self-motivation – and we definitely have our own processes. So even if you DON’T HAVE those household management or domestic engineering skills, we can help you learn and cultivate those things!

Keeping Fit in Body and Mind

Turning a vacation rental isn’t for “wimps”…But who needs a gym membership with all the stretches, squats and hustling the job requires? Save your money AND make more – all in a day’s work!

Most vacation rental care assignments are “solo,” and for many of us, that equals “meditative.” Just cleaning our own homes is mind-clearing for a lot of us anyway, so why not get paid while you sort out your head?

What Else Do You Do?

Moxie Girl is a rapidly growing company, which means sometimes we don’t know what we need until we need it. It also means we may be able to utilize your skills from a “previous life” or ask if you might be interested in exploring and developing new ones! (For example, I’d never done any blog writing before the summer of 2018…I think I’m improving.)

Our more experienced Moxie tribe members bring with them quite the collection of talents – care-taking, accounting, marketing, serving – even running their own businesses – that can be applied to the ever-changing needs of our business. All Moxies are encouraged to “test the waters” of duties that may interest them when the need arises, giving opportunity for personal development.

The End Result…

We all win! Moxie Girl has set goals and high standards for ourselves as The Valley’s Vacation Rental Specialist and as our business grows, so does our tribe of Moxies. It’s all about the resources – and we know a fabulous team is the greatest resource we can have.
