“I have actually worked as an organizer for several years – part volunteer and also getting paid for some of my projects. I have organized two moving sales, an estate sale and several downsizing sales. I have helped organize a hobby room, an office and a basement.
“Taking the course confirmed some of my methods and procedures, which was encouraging. But I still had a lot of questions. Taking the course has given me the answers and direction I needed to take my desire to be a professional organizer to the next level. The course confirmed my belief that the service I was providing was valuable and an extension of my natural talents and that I had a right to charge a fair price for it.
“I have already gotten my DBA (Debbees Busy Bees Household Organizers”), purchased business cards, designed a brochure, sent them out to local businesses, designed an ad for local news publications and set up office procedures for my new business. I purchased a small utility trailer and am stocked up on supplies I’ll need to facilitate any organizing job. I am very excited to enter my new career as a “certified professional organizer”.
“The course covered everything I feel I need to know to become a CPO and then some! I know the manual will be a valuable tool in my bag as I move forward. I have purchased some of the recommended books and plan to buy the others at some point. I will plan to take further courses as time allows.”
