So you say you're an professional organizer

One question that I get when people ask me is “What I do?” When I share with them that I’m a professional organizer the first thing that they are is “Really, they have people that do that? or they immediately think of the show Hoarders. So I quickly say Yes, we do organizer things and Yes, the show Hoarders was a real show that people experience everyday. It’s amazing to know that many people are in need of organizing but know know who or where to turn to leaves them in a place of clutter and chaos that can affect their emotional, physical, mental and spiritual environment.

So as I’m sitting here saying why not let my ladypreneurs into the secret world of Why A Professional Organizer Are A Girls Bestie. To start, becoming an professional organizer was not an easy feat. Either you love organizing stuff or not. It’s really that simple. Then here comes the hours of organizing  and studying to get ready for the NAPO (National Association of Professional Organizers)certification test.

According to NAPO, a professional organizer:

… enhances the lives of clients by designing systems and processes using organizing principles and through transferring organizing skills. A professional organizer also educates the public on organizing solutions and the resulting benefits. Professional organizers help individuals and businesses take control of their surroundings, their time, their paper, and their systems for life.

As professional organizer, there’s an strict code of ethics that we adhere to. Why? Let’s face, you are allowing us to come into one of the most precious spaces that you have…your home and life. While we’re in your personal space all of the characteristic of being a bestie are in the forefront of our minds like being empathetic, willing to listen, being non-judgmental, creative, patient, and trustworthy. Those are some hefty characteristics to have right?

Being able to accomplish task seems to not work for some but having a professional organizing BFF on hand helps motivate, inspire and helps you become a task master. Besides, the saying is true when they say two heads are better than one.

Here’s a little splash of what professional organizer can do for their besties:

  • time management

  • storage design

  • space planning

  • develop an effective filing system

  • control clutter

  • organizing packing 

  • organizing closets,basements and garages

  • serve as a coach or mentor to help  guide clients into a organized lifestyle

Beings organized is not just something you pay for; it’s an investment. One thing that I’ve learned over the years, is that investing in the things that have made the quality of my life more enriching in PRICELESS. There’s nothing like living an organized lifestyle.  Life is much simpler and it allows you to place the proper boundaries in different areas of life so that you will not go back to chaos. 

Until later… Style+Grit & Grace..Linda
