Meet Janet Barclay

At the Professional Organizers in Canada's Annual Conference in 2006, one of the speakers said that blogging was important for business and easy to do, and that we should all go home and start a blog right away.

Even though I didn’t think I had anything to say other than what I was already putting in my monthly newsletter, I decided to start a blog called From the Desk of Janet Barclay, just to see what all the fuss was about. I figured that other people could benefit from reading about interesting new resources I came across as well as other topics that just didn’t fit into the scope of my newsletter.

Other than that, I had no plan, no strategy, and no goals.

Before long, I discovered that I had a real passion for blogging, and by 2009, I’d received enough positive feedback from my readers that I knew I had a knack for it.

Up until then I was blogging about anything and everything, but as I studied ways to make my blog even better, I learned the importance of having a specific niche. Many of my readers and clients were professional organizers with whom I connected during my time in that industry, so I decided to create this new blog just for them.

For a while I integrated Your Organizing Business into my business website, but in 2017 I decided to separate them once again.
