"I want to be a professional organizer but  . . . "    This is a statement I've heard plenty of times!  Sometimes people wonder, "How do I become a professional organizer"  or "Is it OK if I call myself a: home organizer, a personal organizer, an efficiency expert, an organizing guru a home organization stylist" or a similar term. Other times,  people just start organizing for friends and family and it morphs into a small business but they aren't really sure how to proceed and capture the attention of those outside their 'circles' .  If you are great at decluttering but not so great at starting a business, I can help.  

Join me for a 90 minute group phone call about using business forms for organizers, engaging the media and growing an online following with paying clients.  Ask me your questions live! 

Time: 8 pm (eastern)
Date: 9th of June.
