Where to Find a Professional Organizer?May 13, 2022
Want to find out where Professional Organizers are? Well other than stalking us at the container store..... I have a few other spots you can find your local (or national/international!) Professional Organizer to hire!
Finding a Professional Organizer who is credible, reliable, and serious about their business is about as hard as finding a needle in a haystack. We are there in the community but sort of run underground.
#1 The absolute best place to find a Professional Organizer is at NAPO!
The National Association of Productivity and Organizing Professionals is a national organization that educates and vets Organizers.
A few of the key benefits to finding an Organizer from NAPO:
- These people have committed to their industry and to their profession
- NAPO requires members to take 3 preliminary courses before they can officially Join NAPO
#2 Social Media!
Professional Organizing is a very visually appealing profession. Which means, great photos!
Typically, please just make sure that the Professional Organizers you find on social media do not have images that share their client's personal information. This could be photos in the background, names or papers.
When you are working with a Professional Organizer, make sure that you are getting a photo release form that allows the organizers
#3 Local events
You will want an Organizer who is committed to their community and network!
Your Professional Organizer should be your "go-to" person for plumbing, paining, handyman, Realtor, landscaping, electrician, power washing, mold removal, senior care, home insurance, appliance repair, house inspection, and the list goes on and on, and on...
The Organizer should be so committed that they not only know one amazing professional for these services, they actually know 3 or 4 or 5! That varies in price and availability.
In order to build such great relationships with these people in the community, a Professional Organizer will be out networking their business and scoping out other businesses in the area as well. We find them at:
- Speaking engagements
- Networking events
- Home related activities
So those are some of the places where you can find a Professional Organizer that is outside of the Container Store!
