This week we continue our discussion of whether it’s a good time to start a pro organizing business by replaying one of our most popular episodes, “Make your first $1k on a Budget.” Pro organizing is a great business, and it requires very minimal investment to enter. Can’t wait for you to join us!
While this year has been challenging on many fronts, there are still many opportunities for professional organizers! With people spending so much more time at home, there has never been a better time for a professional organizer to find clients. We talk about many different ways that organizers can approach clients in this current world–including organizing via Zoom and FaceTime (yes–that really works!)
This episode of the podcast has Jen and Melissa interviewing Kate The Socialite of Socialite Vault about marketing for home professionals. Kate is a marketing guru for home professionals–interior designers, organizers and stagers. She is passionate about professional organizers knowing that marketing doesn’t have to be scary! Many pro organizers get scared when they hear the word marketing. But Kate is here to tell us that it’s accessible and there are some clear tips and tricks that you can put into your business right away.
This episode of the podcast features an interview with our new cohost, Melissa Klug of Home By Eleven. Melissa is a full-time professional organizer and business coach for pro organizers, and she joins us to talk about her story. She went from working on global marketing & strategy for a major Fortune 500 company to working with clients on decluttering and organizing their homes–and never looked back. But while she made the major leap into entrepreneurship full-time, which could have been scary–she realized it was the best move of her life!
I’m sharing a clip directly from a coaching call with one of my Inspired Organizer students for the podcast today, because well, sometimes the best aha moments come completely unscripted! What I loved about this conversation is that you can REALLY hear the huge change in her mindset from the beginning of this segment to the end, and if you can relate to having any hangups about spending money on growing your business, I hope you’ll get a major lightbulb moment out of this, too.

She’s sharing a day in the life of being an employee and just how fulfilling that can be.
The episode I’m sharing today was pulled from a new Facebook Live series I did all about online business topics. I’m simply teaching for free, sharing resources, and pulling back the curtain and breaking things down step-by-step so that you can 1. KNOW what options you have and what they look like, and 2. Avoid getting burned by someone trying to sell you information that is freely available.
