Aspiring Professional Organizers Training Program

Do you have a knack for organizing?dreamstime_s_2982986

Do you want to make clutter disappear?

Would you like to be a professional organizer? But not sure where to begin?

Come learn from a self-supporting professional organizer who’s been in business for 20 years!

Learn all the ins and outs of being a professional organizer. Yes, you can take a training course online, but it’s not the same as learning on the job.

AND learn how to be a successful business person who has a full client roster. This part is REALLY IMPORTANT.
Let me teach you business skills on how to attract clients and how to get them to hire you.

In this program you will learn:

  • Do you need to sign up for this program? Maybe, but you find yourself thinking:Yeah, but I can do this on my own.

    Do you really know the ins and outs of setting up the foundation to a successful business or are you just going to wing it and hope for the best?

    Yeah, well I’m just going to do the best I can until something bad happens.

    Do you REALLY want to take that risk when you know there’s a significantly better way?

    Yeah, I don’t have the time or money.

    You absolutely cannot afford to NOT invest your time and money now. The key indicator of future success, i.e. money flow, is based on your current performance and know-how.

    • The Thriving Professional Organizing Business Program is conducted as 10 weekly 1:1 coaching sessions.
    • I bring 15+ years as a successful professional organizer, coach and business owner.
    • In each session we dedicate roughly 50% of our time to addressing hot weekly issues and 50% to the weekly lesson. Client and coach can decide together, in the moment, where it’s best to apply time to particular hot issues.

     

    The 10 Sessions are sequential and build towards going after what you want:
