Hiring the Right Professional Organizer

Hiring the Right Professional Organizer

When it comes to hiring a professional organizer, what do you look for? Most of you probably ask a friend if they know anyone who can organize your space. Or maybe you go to Instagram to find someone who has perfect “after” photos and inspiration. These actions might inspire you to start your search, but they may not help you find the right professional organizer for you.

Beware: not all professional organizers are equal in their expertise. Instead of hopping online and hiring the first person you find, it’s important to do some thorough research first. You want to find a professional you can trust – someone you are comfortable letting into your home. A top-notch professional organizer will have credibility. They will demonstrate that they are invested in the industry through continued education and community involvement. I’m a firm believer that you have to continue learning and growing to keep improving your business. If a professional organizer doesn’t stay on top of the advancements in the industry, how can you expect them to deliver the most current and effective solutions to their clients?

The best way to identify effective new solutions is through continued education. Earlier this month, I had the pleasure of helping to organize NAPO 2023 Summit, the annual trade show for the National Association of Productivity and Organizing Professionals. The event featured three days of career development and learning at Hilton Lake Las Vegas Resort. There were various options for professional organizers who are at different stages in their careers. The schedule included interactive sessions, panel discussions, networking opportunities, and learning labs for continued education. I even had the opportunity to present! It was motivating to discover what is new in the industry. I left feeling more confident about how to make a positive impact in my clients’ lives. Shout out to my good friends at M Design for sponsoring this inspiring event!

My trip got me thinking about what’s next for my business and the industry. It seems like a lot of professional organizers aren’t engaging in this conversation yet. But I think it’s time to change that. My business is all about finding solutions to organizing dilemmas. My clients are trusting me to give them expert advice. Knowing this, I feel responsible to do the ongoing work of finding and implementing the most innovative solutions for my clients.

As a professional organizer and move manager, I take it upon myself to stay current on the best practices to help my clients achieve maximum productivity, decreased stress, and a beautiful, livable environment that supports their best lives! And, I’m passionate about furthering my knowledge in the industry and encouraging other professional organizers to do the same. That’s why I’m so excited to announce that starting May 15, I will be the new President of the NAPO Los Angeles chapter! It’s an honor to be able to serve on the board of this chapter, which received a Chapter of the Year Award in 2022. I can’t wait to share my journey with you, and apply my expanded knowledge to upcoming client projects. Stay tuned for all the great things to come!
