Completed 4 years of college no degree. I started organizing as a teenager at home. When ever my parents needed something organized they would have me. After college I got married and started cleaning houses and that lead to organizing. We moved out of the country for a few years and returned 2 years ago. I have organized my husband's parents house.
I look at organizing as needed essential in peoples lives. It helps us with saving money time and space. I Think it's important to really understand your client. The way that they think ,the way they go about their everyday lives. You really need to get a feel of what works best for your client so that they are able to keep things organize when you leave. I feel the actual organizing is 20% and the education to the client is 80%.
I feel the education part of the organizing is done throughout the project in the beginning middle and end. Educating the client would include showing them the systems that are in place to keep each project organize and to stay organized. I like leaving my clients feeling that they've accomplished a project and able to use it without being overwhelmed with The thought of having to do the same project over again. Because of the lack of understanding the systems that are in place.
