“Building a Business You’ll Love” Coming to San Francisco


With NAPO founder Ann Gambrel, 2011

On October 15 I’m teaming up with Geralin Thomas, owner of Metropolitan Organizing and expert organizer from A&E’s Hoarders, to present a workshop especially for newer organizers and those who are wondering whether organizing might be right for them.

It’s called “Building an Organizing Business You’ll Love,” and we have packed so much information into this workshop that one conference session isn’t enough to hold it all! (More on that later…)

Whether you’re still in the planning stages or whether you’ve already begun to work with clients, this session will help newer organizers make the right moves, in the right order, to build a successful and sustainable organizing business. You’ll learn why it’s important to choose a business focus, how to begin developing a written plan (one you’ll really use!), one never-fail method to begin finding clients, and what business tools you’ll need to serve those clients in a professional manner.

Does that sound like almost too much for one conference session? That’s what we thought! But Geralin and I want you to get the information and tools you need, so we’ll be offering two group coaching opportunities at no charge to everyone who attends our workshop. That way, you’ll have multiple chances to ask follow-up questions and get live help to begin putting your plans into action.

This session is part of the West Coast organizing conference sponsored by NAPO-SFBA, but you don’t need to be a member of the San Francisco chapter or of NAPO in order to attend. This conference is open to anyone who is an aspiring, new or veteran professional organizer or seller of organizing-related products and services.

The cost for this entire one-day conference, including lunch, is $365, and NAPO members get a discount. Registration is still available, but it’s filling up fast, so don’t wait. To get all the details and to register, visit NAPO-SFBA and click on the button at the top that says “Events” then “Regional Conference.” You can download the whole gorgeous brochure that describes all the programs being offered throughout the day at the beautiful Berkeley City Club.

Geralin and I hope to see many of you there!

  1. Margaret,
    I’m looking forward to this presentation for a lot of reasons. 1. I’m collaborating with you and your wonderful SFO chapter. 2. I’m going to have the opportunity to visit one of my favorite places 3. The Berkley club looks like Paradise! 4. Helping organizers grow their business is something we are both passionate about. 5. Did I mention that I like the food, coffee, sights, sounds, smells and mood-weather of SFO?

  2. Thrilled to bits you’re offering this session, and it’s incredibly generous of you & Geralin to offer further group coaching.
