What is your organizing WOW factor?

Recently, I have researched many TV segments featuring Professional Organizers sharing their ways of organizing various areas of one’s home, business and lives. Additionally, I have read many of the latest books written by Professional Organizers explaining their methods for organizing. Lastly, I have perused numerous Professional Organizers websites from newbies to veterans.

What has struck me is...nothing! There is nothing revolutionary being said. No WOW factor. I feel like I have heard it all and seen it all when comes to “how to” organize. If I feel that way, I wonder, does the public at large feel that way too?

Which brings me to my point of this blog post…what is the organizing WOW factor for you? What makes you say, “WOW I never thought of that before!” or “WOW I think that might really help me to get organized!”

I want to hear from you whether you are a Professional Organizer, a person in need of organizing, someone who has always been organized, or someone who has recently become organized. So, do tell…what is your organizing WOW factor?

Anne: Hi! I am really enjoying the ideas on right-brain organizing techniques, re-purposing things you already have for organizing tools, etc. I pasted in a few fun links that got my own juices going for other ideas. Some are kids art projects/decorating/organizing all in one. It seems that particularly artist-types want to really customize the organizing process.

I love what I do!

Today I’m preparing for the July 15-17 Layer 2 Seminar training and client practicum. I was reviewing the May participant’s remarks to capture improvements to the training curriculum and thought I would share their feedback:
Jenee - Anne and her 3 day seminar really are amazing! Her program was beyond what I expected, she goes the extra mile for every part of it. The only thing I would change is the distance that separates us (Florida-Oregon). Anne truly has so much to offer to this industry, I'm glad I had the opportunity to learn from the best! As I continue in this field I'm excited to have her as a mentor.
Elida - The training seminar, was rejuvenating! It exceeded my expectations and experience! Anne is extremely professional and of course organized!! I love when things just flow and stay on track, and the seminar did just that!
Marie - I found the Institute for ProfessionalOrganizers training to be invaluable in taking my business to the next level. Although I had already w…

NAPO Conference Sparks New Affiliate Program

At the NAPO 2013 Conference Expo I had the opportunity to talk with several NAPO Chapter Presidents and other chapter board members. After I explained the Institute for Professional Organizers™ (IPO™) training program they expressed it is of value particularly to those first entering the profession.  It was exciting to receive validation and support from so many in the Professional Organizer industry!

Whenever I attend conference I discover ways to expand and grow my business.  This year, my expansion will directly benefit you. I have created an IPO™ affiliate program for you to earn passive revenue. As a past IPO™ participant you will earn higher commissions. For those of you involved in a NAPO chapter this is an opportunity for your chapter to earn revenue too.


For each IPO™ Fast Track Method™ Training Self-Study Program sold through an affiliate channel, revenue is shared as follows: General Public/Organizations/NAPO Chapter affiliate earns 3% commissionIPO™ Trained affiliate ea…
