Learning To Be A Mensch with Author Elisa Udaskin
- Interview by Rachael Wallace, November 30, 2020
Elisa Udaskin didn’t always know she wanted to be a writer. Her very direct, linear career path as a global marketer in the corporate world for close to 20 years gave her the experiences of working, living, and travelling all over the world.
But, a few years ago, Elisa left that world and had the fortune of time to think about what she wanted to do with “Chapter Two” of her career, as she called it. She knew she wanted to do something to help people.
When her father-in-law passed away, Elisa observed how so many people reached out to comfort her family, while some didn’t know what to do. Their intentions were there — they were just “stuck.” That’s when she came up with the idea to develop her website: www.caringorganizer.com. It’s a site that inspires people to help others with tangible ideas and tools, including meal organizers to set up a schedule of sending in meals for the mourning family or the family of someone who is seriously ill.
