Click here for more information.
You’ll also want to get a copy of our newest book, Learn to Organize: A Professional Organizer’s Tell-All Guide to Home Organizing. You’ll learn a simple, six-step process that teaches the “how-to” of the actual hands-on organizing process. From creating goals and making a plan, to sorting, decluttering and putting everything in just the right place, you’ll see that smart, successful organizing is within your reach.

pro training lessons for new organizers
Each Learn to Organize Pro Training Lesson offers step-by-step directions to organize a specific area of the home. You’ll learn how to assess the space, how to empty, quick-toss and sort items in the space, and how to declutter down to the items. Then, you’ll learn how to containerize items within the space, and discover tips to label for easy retrieval. Finally, you’ll get into the clean-up and maintenance phase, an essential — but often overlooked — part of any organizing project. You can practice the process on your own home, a friend’s home, or with a client. Click here for more information.

a word from one of my customers
I have very much enjoyed and appreciated the wonderful tools you provide to professional organizers. As a new organizer, I have benefited from your Born to Organize book, Essential Client Forms, Articles on Demand, and Marketing Fairy & Career Dreams e-newsletters. They have all been invaluable resources. In fact, it was your fantastic Marketing Fairy e-newsletter “Social Media Tips” that motivated me to create my own Facebook business page and LinkedIn profile. I also enjoy your Facebook and Pinterest posts, as well as the great advice you contribute on the NAPO member chats. I look forward to more of your great advice and insights as I continue to grow my organizing business.
