How to Start a Professional Organizing Business FROM SCRATCH w/ Zero Experience: Step by Step Guide

step by step guide to starting a professional organizing business

I’m doing a little experiment this year here in 2022 now that I’ve left California and moved to Oklahoma. I’m going to be re-launching my organizing business, Let’s Get You Organized, in a brand new territory and market. I’m in rural Oklahoma but Oklahoma City is the nearest metro area… so I’d like to introduce Let’s Get You Organized OKC!

Before I let you in on all the behind the scenes of creating this brand new biz, here’s a little about me:

-I started my first business in 2011.

-I left the workforce to go full time as an entrepreneur in 2018.

-I hired a team in 2019.

-I wrote a book in 2020 (and hit Amazon Best Seller in 11 categories!).

-I launched & sold an online course in 2021.

-And now in 2022, I’m coaching several women in my 1:1 coaching program, PRO Organizer Bootcamp while also hosting a podcast and fostering an online community in my Facebook group.

  • Day 6 - The website should be done and I’m connecting the Google domain I purchased to my Wordpress name servers… I know that sounds tech, but it’s actually really easy… basically it’s just a matter of connecting your host to your domain (ie your

  • Day 7 - Once the website is live I’ll be going full throttle in claiming my free business listings on Google My Business, Yelp, FindMyOrganizer, and Nextdoor. Head HERE if you want to learn more on how to get your organizing business set up on these platforms for FREE!
