So many stories I hear from women wanting to get involved in professional organizing sound similar to how my journey began.
You recognize your talent and your passion for organizing while helping friends and family and realize: this is actually a career you could see yourself doing for years to come. You may feel excited, passionate, and eager to get started… BUT you also feel scared, unsure, and lack the confidence needed to know that you have what it takes to actually run a successful business behind the scenes.
I am so proud of my students. Nothing brings me more joy than to be a part of the Pro Organizer Studio community and watch awesome boss babes find success in the business of their dreams. One such lovely lady is Ashley Grubbs of Mind Your Mess. Ashley is a student of our master class, Inspired Organizer™. She put the course to work for her, and totally rocked it in 2017!
Ok, I need you to stay with me for a minute. Which might be hard, because we’re all juggling sooo many responsibilities. Side-hustling, day job, mom-life, actually trying to socialize and fit in some self-care… You probably have a million things going on all. the. freaking. time. But really, multitasking isn’t getting you closer to your goals. Instead, it’s costing you a lot in terms of productivity, energy, and peace of mind.
Are you as nerdy about organizing (and EXCELLING at) your personal finances as I am? If so, you’re probably all about that Dave Ramsey, gazelle-intense life. Getting rid of debt requires laser focus… and some extra income can be a serious game changer.

One of the things that scared me the most when I started organizing other people? …was the feeling of not looking like I knew what I was doing.
I bet you thought I was going to say not actually knowing what I was doing.
Well of course, that made me nervous a few times too… until I realized that every client wanted something unique and individualized from me anyway, not a “prescribed process”. I learned very quickly how to listen to the way she described her situation in her home and jump right into what was bothering HER the most. It’s a simple tip that changes the game.
