Are you a [new] professional organizer wondering if you need business insurance? Depending on what types of jobs you're doing (packing/relocations, senior downsizing, coaching) rates and types of coverage will vary. Here's a Q & A post I wrote after interviewing several insurance agents for my own organizing business.

"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)

Here's part two of an article about obtaining the proper type of insurance for the work you're doing in the organizing industry.
