FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

Will this class teach me to be organized?  

We will cover some organizing tips and techniques, although this is not the focus of this training.  It is presumed that you are a naturally organized person or you have learned organizing skills and have a strong desire to learn all you need to know from our years of experience in the field so that you can help others achieve more order in their homes and/or businesses.  

Do I need to be prepared to do all kinds of organizing?  

No, in the training we will explain the various specialty areas of organizing as designated by the National Association of Professional Organizers.  Once you know your niche, you can refer any client out of your area of expertise to the network.  You will receive a % of any and all work done by clients you refer (this will be fully explained in the training).  

How does your class compare to other training options? 

 Going to the national conventions and/or the state chapter meetings may be beneficial for some things but these activities are not structured to teach you all you need to know to begin your business like our class does.  We offer "free" on-going mentoring/coaching for as long as you need/want it following the training so you will not feel alone in your new business.   You will be immediately connected into our referral network  (you may choose  to give/receive referrals)  We occasionally offer "free" teleconference in-service learning/networking opportunities.  You will receive Marketing Memo’s and any other pertinent information via email.

Will I be your employee? 

No, you will be prepared to be an Independent Contractor. You may receive client referrals from us but you are expected to find clients to build your own business using techniques of your choice.

 Will I be certified by taking this training?

Once you take our training you may claim and advertise that you have been trained by and are a part of The Organizing Specialists Network.  We are setting up our own accreditation program for our network organizers and will let you know when it is available to consider.

We will also explain in the training how the time spent in one of our sessions will count toward becoming a CPO (certified professional organizer) via the National Association of Professional Organizers.  Their certification program is the only “official” certification program available to organizers at this time and we will explain what must be done to obtain this in our training.

Am I guaranteed to receive referral clients from you?

No, we reserve the right to refer clients or not to refer clients to organizers who have completed our program. We base our referrals on a  variety of factors like location of the client to the organizer, specific areas of expertise of the organizers, time availability of the organizer in relation to the client, reliability and professionalism of the organizer based on our contact and evaluation of each organizer, and so on.

I've noticed there are other organizers in my area, could it be saturated already?

 No! There are so many people out there who need our services that one or several organizers couldn't possibly handle all the potential clients even if they could contact them all. Organizers work at different levels of activity therefore some are part-time and others are full time. If you work diligently at getting your name out there in your area you will fill your schedule in a relatively short time and our training/mentoring will help guide you in marketing efforts to do just that.

After the class is over will I be able to address questions and concerns to you at any time?

Yes, once you have taken our training you are considered a part of our network and may contact us any time to receive on-going coaching at no further cost to you.

What further contact will I have with The Organizing Specialists after the training is completed? 
We will stay in contact with you via occasional Memo’s to the Network and/or mailings and emailing.  When we hear of teleclasses to further your education in the field we will alert you of them.  Those who live in Michigan may see us at the monthly NAPO Michigan Chapter meetings.    

  Note: Feel free to bring any other questions you may have to the training session. 

  What participants are saying about our training:

P.O. Fast Track Training:
"I really enjoyed the organizing training! It was very flexible for my busy schedule as a mom and I enjoyed being able to ask questions from two great ladies who have been in the business for a long time. Judy and Treva were very helpful on the conference calls, in the training material provided and via email. I'm also excited to start receiving leads to get my business rolling. I'm very thankful to have experienced organizers helping me in this new adventure in my life and am excited to see my business grow!"  ~ Emily

It was a pleasure to meet and train with Treva and Judy!  They are both professional, but also very down to earth with their style and delivery of training. I truly appreciate their depth of knowledge and experience in this industry and the willingness to share. I walked away feeling that my burning questions had been answered, better prepared for my new clients and with a solid feeling of being connected to a network of "like minded" professionals. Thank you!  Linda F.

"I was thrilled at your presentation. I had purchased 2 other books on beginning an organizing business & felt empty after reading them. I didn't feel I had learned anything. I feel I learned exactly what I needed from your class. Thank you!"

"You covered everything & more - thank you so much!"

"Lots of information to process, but I loved it!"

"I appreciate being trained by both of you. Thank you for your commitment to being professionals."

If I didn't have this information and your guidance and mentoring I think that I would become discouraged when challenges arise. Many blessing to you, your business and your families."

  "I feel like I now have a real life set of expectations about my business. I also feel like I have a roadmap for building business and clientele. I'm very excited to get going."

  "I  feel that having you two to contact with questions is very comforting."
