4 free Facebook groups for professional organizers (& why we have closed ours)

From the first time I nervously went "live" on Facebook inside our tiny group back in September of 2016, I only ever had one goal: to help professional organizers stop overanalyzing and worrying about moving forward in their business, and to take solid ACTION.

Now more than ever, I want Pro Organizer Studio to be that place that organizers come to when they really understand that what it takes to move to the "next level" in business (and it won't be with you wearing ALL the hats, queen.)

There’s been ups and downs and its taught me a little about a lot of stuff—and not just about organizing or about my clients, I’ve learned a lot about, well… me.

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.
