Welcome to this month’s issue of the Professional Organizers Blog Carnival, a monthly collection of blog posts submitted by some of the organizing consultants who enjoy reading Your Organizing Business. Please visit their blogs, read their posts, and leave a comment or two. It’s an awesome way to learn something new and grow your network at the same time! Beginning this month, each contributor’s name is linked to her (or his) Twitter profile, so you can get connected that way too!

Blog Carnival

Here’s this month’s line-up:

Anne Blumer shares a powerful video about Communicating Your Value to your clients, rather than focusing on your price.

Tammy Burke offers some additional marketing strategies in her post Do Organizers Market Systematically? Tammy says, “Using a system for marketing is crucial to business success.  It’s not only important to know what and when you are going to market, it’s also important to know that you are attracting exactly what you want.  By following this 5-step plan, you’ll feel more confident about your marketing efforts.”

Julie Bestry is back this month with A Culinary Model for Successful Mobile Offices.

I’m sending out a special welcome to our first contributor from New Zealand, Wendy Davie who offers advice on how to cope When it all gets too much! and Angela Esnouf, our first contributor from Australia, who brings us 21 Ways to Get Organised in Just 5 Minutes. Angela hopes you’ll enjoy not only the content of her post, but also the fun layout, and that it will motivate you and your clients alike.

Wrapping up this month’s carnival is Jodi Granok with some Weight Loss Tips You May Not Know About (no longer online).

Thanks for visiting the Professional Organizers Blog Carnival! We’ll do it again next month, so don’t forget to get involved by submitting your post. Be sure to come back on August 10th for the next edition.

    What an honor to be have my post featured. Best of all, I’m thrilled to be in such good company!

    I had not seen Angela’s 21 tips before and got such a kick out of the formatting of it and Julie’s post made me crave trifle (w/o beef!) LOL.

    Hello Janet,

    Thanks for including my post. It’s an honour to be in such good company.

    One of the many things I love about our industry is the sense of community.

    @ Geralin, thanks, glad you enjoyed it.

    Geralin and Angela, I’m so pleased to have both of you taking part in the Carnival.

    Geralin, I was a bit confused about your comment about trifle without beef, thinking it had something to do with the Friends episode where two pages from Rachel’s cookbook stuck together, so I went back to Julie’s post and re-read the reference to Dan Aykroyd as Julia Child. It hadn’t stuck in my mind because Hulu videos won’t stream outside the US, but I happen to own The Best of Dan Aykroyd on VHS so I’ll have to watch it again the next time I’m looking for something to do.

    Angela, I agree with you fully about the sense of community. I experienced it as a POC member, and now I’m witnessing it on a global level through Twitter and this blog.
