Putting Order Where You Want It
Corporate America was getting in the way of Josephine Paige's desire to be with her daughter in her growing years, so she decided to look for an alternative. She chose to use her organizing skills to start a business and help others put some system into their lives.
Be honest, provide as accurate an estimate as possible, talk to your client to understand their needs and expectations, explain to them what organizing can do and what it can't do. Be sure to express the importance of maintenance, and finally, keep open communication with the client.
Pinch-Hitter offers professional organizing, budgeting and ADHD coaching. Although their clients may vary, the common thing they give everyone is organizing help in their spatial, virtual, monetary or durational needs. One favorite project Josephine did was a spatial organizing for an office closet, which she considers her masterpiece.
I start out by explaining what organizing is and how it can bring order and efficiency into their lives. I ask for an example of disorganization and verbally paint a picture to describe how organizing that aspect of their lives will increase efficiency and reduce stress by providing order.
Consider Josephine of Pinch-Hitter now, and establish systems and strategies that make your lives more efficient and productive.
