Just What is a Professional Organizer?
Do you have clothes in your closet that you haven’t worn in over a year? Have you been waiting to lose weight to wear that special pair of pants again and can’t remember the last time you wore them? Has this month’s In Style magazine arrived and you realize you haven’t read last month’s yet? Have you incurred late charges on your bills because they were lost and not paid on time? Did your son or daughter miss that special birthday party because you misplaced the invitation?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, a professional organizer may be just what you need.
My name is Wendy Cross and I am a professional organizer. After 25 years of working in the business/office management field in the areas of law, entertainment and education, I left the corporate work place two years ago to start my own business - Steps to Organization.
A professional organizer can help individuals in many areas including organizing the home office, kitchen, garage, closet, children’s rooms, time and calendar management, photographs and collectibles. Additionally, professional organizers can be hired to help downsize a home for a retired couple relocating to a retirement community or to ready a home for sale. They can also help students who are struggling with organizing their time and study skills.
In the business field, a professional organizer can help set up filing systems, work with individuals and groups on time and resource management and assist in setting up computer files and accounting programs.
