3 Reasons Why You Should (Finally) Start Your Professional Organizing Business



You don’t need to go from zero to 100 real quick…. here at Pro Organizer Bootcamp we’re all about taking BABY STEPS to success.

As you’re learning about how to start out on your journey in professional organizing, it can be extremely overwhelming. You’re not just trying to figure out how to color code books on a bookshelf or organize cereals & grains into pretty glass containers…. you’re also being bombarded with overwhelming thoughts about how to accept payments, confirm appointments, gather online reviews, build a website, grow a social media presence, file for a business license…. and about a million other things. Hell, you might not even know how to get your very first paying client. Or how to get your name out there in your local community so you can actually test the waters and see if you even like this whole Marie Kondo-ing, Home Edit-ing, community. Once you’re in a state of overwhelm, chances are you’ll freeze and stop creating any momentum in your budding biz…. and no one wants that. The Pro Organizer Bootcamp course presents the information on how to start your biz in an easy-to-follow, bite-sized format. I’m here to guide you, so let’s dive in!


Reason #1: Life Will Never Be the Same Post-Pandemic

With so many people staying in their homes a heck of a lot more, those cluttered garages and pantries full of expired panic-bought food are definitely starting to need a little sprucing up. As we saw an influx in purchases of work-from-home office equipment, at home gym equipment, and a whole lot of loungewear and sweatpants, we’re now seeing the need for people to truly analyze their living spaces and purge what no longer serves them. Homeowners are taking a look around and noticing all the little home projects that have piled up over the past year, and now they’re ready to open their doors to professional organizers to help them learn what to keep, what to toss, and what to donate. With hybrid work and school environments that are now the “new normal”- we’re all staying home a heck of a lot more, even after the first wave of vaccinations has passed. Get in there and help your clients declutter and downsize- now is the time! Get off the fence and take action in launching your home organization biz.


Reason #2: Home Organization Is Like Totally Trending

You might have noticed lots of streaming series popping up like Tidying Up with Marie Kondo and Get Organized with The Home Edit on Netflix. Or heard about the Tiny Home trend or the Minimalism movement. After years and years of overconsumption, people are finally starting to understand the importance of downsizing and minimizing so that they can clear their homes and minds of clutter. There’s a reason all these shows and pop culture trends are showing up- it’s time for professional organizers to SHINE! It’s time to start utilizing your natural gifts and talents to help others in their homes- stop letting your skills go to waste!


Reason #3: Side Hustles Are {Almost} a Necessity Now

With unemployment rates skyrocketing in 2020 as several industries shut down- like hospitality, travel, events, and gyms just to name a few- we all got our careers shaken up a bit. The jobs that previously seemed super stable and the companies that seemed bullet-proof, were suddenly not so rock solid. Being able to monetize a hobby and have a little side income stream is not only fun, but it’s also a backup plan in case sht hits the fan again. Side hustles are the future and it seems like everyone and their mother (literally) has a side hustle these days. Side hustles are an awesome way to “get your feet wet” in doing something you love, testing it to see which direction you want to go, AND getting paid to do it! Starting a side hustle is a lot less scary than starting a full-blown, super serious business. Becoming your own boss and turning a hobby or a passion into a paying gig doesn’t have to be such a feared thing. Get in there and play in the damn puddle- take those baby steps to success and get on your way with launching your pro organizing business.
