Becoming a Professional Organizer

If you’re thinking about establishing an organizing business, you’ll find lots of helpful information right here on Your Organizing Business and elsewhere on the Internet, but sometimes it’s really helpful to have a comprehensive guide to keep on hand as a reference manual, both as you get started and down the road.

FabJob Guide to Become a Professional Organizer

As a professional organizer, you can get paid to do hands-on organizing, to give people organizing ideas, or both. The FabJob Guide to Become a Professional Organizer holds nearly 300 pages of valuable information on this rapidly growing field, including:

  • Background about the organizing industry to help you decide if this is the right career for you
  • A room-by-room guide to home organizing and reducing clutter, with proven systems for deciding if something is treasure, toy, tool or trash
  • Tips for organizing businesses, including workflow management, filing systems, and space planning
  • Personal organization and time management strategies
  • Advice to help you start a professional organizing business, set your prices, and attract customers
  • Marketing techniques, from public speaking to article writing

You’ll also read profiles of a number of industry experts, including Laurene Livesey Park, former President of Professional Organizers in Canada (POC), and Barry Izsak, former President of the National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO).

Originally developed as an e-book, the FabJob Guide to Become a Professional Organizer is now available in a printed version for just a few dollars more. The print book includes a bonus CD-ROM with forms and checklists you can use in your organizing business.

Although I have not read all of the guides mentioned above, I have read some of their other publications and am confident you will find them to be helpful resources.
