Getting Help – Professional Organizers Blog Carnival

Welcome to the latest edition of the Professional Organizers Blog Carnival! This month, it’s all about getting help.

Getting Help - Professional Organizers Blog Carnival

Depending on the type of help you need, it may come from many different sources:

  • from a professional organizer
  • from a family member
  • from a financial planner
  • from technology
  • from a virtual assistant
  • from the community
  • from a coach
  • from team members

And these are just a few possibilities!

To learn more about identifying when help is needed, what type of help is needed, who should provide that help, and how to ask for it, I encourage you to read the posts listed below, which have been submitted by readers of Your Organizing Business.

You may notice that we’ve changed our layout this month. We’re using a new tool which hopefully makes it easier to read while reducing the time it takes to put the Blog Carnival together. This gives me more time to read your posts, to develop topics for future Blog Carnivals, and to work on regular blog posts.

Bloggers with an asterisk (*) next to their names are participating for the first time, so please give them a special welcome!

As you read through the posts, be sure to take this opportunity to grow your network by leaving comments and/or connecting with the bloggers on social media. Please use the hashtag #POBC in your social media posts.

A former professional organizer, I’m now a Website Design and Care Specialist. I love helping others succeed by sharing the knowledge and insight I’ve gained through marketing my own business for over 15 years! When I’m away from my desk, I enjoy reading, photography, watching movies, and cooking.
