The Importance of Hiring a NAPO Professional Organizer When You’ve Had Enough of Your Stuff! By Marla Stone
You are feeling powerless over the clutter. You cannot seem to make a dent in your home, office, or garage so that you can enjoy your real estate. You cannot find your stuff. You are at your wits' end in piles and loads of laundry, books, papers, boxes, supplies, clothes, and just STUFF. You finally admit you want and/or need help with yourself and space. YESSSSSSSS that is the start of getting organized. You will confess that you want assistance to get help. Remember, nothing changes unless something changes!
Do you know who you choose to help get you organized? Well, a Professional Organizing Company, of course! But which one do you choose to help you clear the clutter, sort through your items, and then create an organized system and a home for all your stuff? My suggestion is that it is a National Association of
Professional Organizers (NAPO) organizer, and you can find one at
To become a Professional Organizer through NAPO, you will have specific
qualifications, a background in working with people, and experience helping people get and stay organized. My background of helping people for 18 years as a Social worker and therapist laid the groundwork for helping people easily get organized and stay that way. Also, having a specialization in Mental Health,
Feng Shui and Décor make the organization, for you, your family, and your loved ones, over the top successful. Let’s face it: this process of getting organized is not just manual labor and a band-aid solution….you want it to last and be able to be duplicated by you after the Professionals leave.
Getting a neighbor, friend, or local student to organize you is
feasible. Still, the lasting impressions, techniques, and words of wisdom given to you by a Professional Organizer will last forever in your mind, emotions, and
space. Working with a Professional NAPO organizer is a process you
will never forget. Suppose your organizer is not a Professional NAPO organizer, even if they are very efficient and effective in executing your stuff. In that case, it does not mean the groundwork has been laid for you to keep it up.
I recently saw a company creep up into my area of Orange County. I
won’t mention names because there are none on their website. It appears the website is run by a group of students who created a website and a fake blog site, mentioning their company as the top in Orange County. Having a website or using "Professional Organizer" does not necessarily qualify one to organize homes, businesses, or lives. The website has a number from an out-of-state landline in New York, and no one answers the phone. This should be a huge warning to anyone wanting some help. Just think about it: you will be allowing someone in your home who
has no address, valid phone number, and or the credentials clearly stated on
their website, not to mention a picture or name of who owns the company. Can I say SCARY!!!
When you have had ENOUGH OF YOUR STUFF, contact Organizers Now and
find a valid, authentic, and genuine Professional Organizer.
