Thinking about becoming a Professional Organizer? Learn from experience!
Learn more about the organizing profession by attending our dynamic New Organizer Workshops (NOW), where experienced organizers share their expertise through presentations and in-class exercises to help you learn the business aspects of organizing.
These workshops are designed for new and prospective organizers and will introduce you to vital concepts that will help you start and grow your own company.
We’ll answer all your questions and you’ll leave with reference materials and a resource list including books, websites, government agencies, and industry associations dedicated to helping the new small business owner and, most importantly, a new sense of clarity and purpose.
