About

My name is Mary Frances McGraw, and after over two decades of working for others and developing skills to help others in a variety of ways, I decided to go out on my own and start my business, Practical Life LLC. I am certified in etiquette consulting, professional organizing, and life coaching. On the surface these might not seem like they work together, I know that they do.

Etiquette today can be anything from proper table manners to working in a professional environment to the ever-present online presence and social media.

Organizing isn’t just about tidying up your closet or basement. It’s about making your environments, whether it be your home or workplace, more functional. It’s also deciding what you really need to keep, what and how to get rid of things, and getting the most out of what you own.

Life coaching isn’t just having someone cheering you on from the sidelines of life, but someone who helps you see your challenges in a positive way, and helping you see the potential in yourself.

I am here to help you in one, two, or all three of these areas, and I will be happy to guide you into the next phase of your life!
