Organize And Plan | How To Choose A Professional Organizer
As modern life progresses, I believe that time has become even more precious and has the capacity to increase our potential for finding opportunities.
Using a professional organizer allows you to maximize the opportunities that life has to offer and to make the best use of your time.
The past decade has also seen life become increasingly sophisticated yet far less labor intensive for many people. If you want to get and stay ahead, it has become important to stay organized.
A professional organizer service or what I call 'efficiency service' is a great way to start and stay organized.
In this age and time, we find ourselves outsourcing more and more tasks in our homes to other people and companies, just as if our home life were a business.
The services provided by these individuals and companies make our life more efficient and that is why we use them. A few of the efficiency services that you probably use include:
- Delivery services
- Car wash
- Lawn maintenance
- Various home maintenance tasks
As time has advanced, many of us find that we can afford to have those chores taken care of by other people, thus leaving us with some spare time.
How we maximize that spare time to earn more money gives us an opportunity we shouldn't waste. And that is where professional organizers come into play.
Imagine what a professional organizer working for you could do for you personal organization.
As a professional organizer I consult with many people to organize everything in their life; That is to say that I help to organize goals, organize homes, organize time, etc.
With my expertise, I have chosen some core tips to help you choose a professional organizer that is also suitable for you personal needs.
Choosing a professional organizer can be a cause for anxiety itself, which can defeat the point of organization services.
So below are some key insider tips from a professional organizer on how you can choose a good professional organizer who will be suitable for your own style and way of doing things.
1. Make a list of 10 or so professional organizers by doing a search online or in a phone directory. Contact them by phone or by email and let them know that you are contacting 9 other professional organizers to find the most suitable candidate. This approach will let your potential candidates for the assignment know that they can not 'hard sell' you.
2. Take a look at their website, read some of their articles, and read their reply email or hear them out by phone. Tell them you still have the other candidates to consider before you make your decision. A good professional organizer will approve of your organized approach.
On your check list you also need to score them on:
a. How interesting and thoughtful their products and services are.
b. How their email response made you feel.
c. How good they listened to you. This may seem strange but I believe the skill of listening is one of the most important skills that a good professional organizer should have. If the professional organizer can not fully and completely listen to everything you are about and where you are coming from they will never be able to take you to a level of personal organization that satisfies you.
The factors I have mentioned above should give you enough information to be able to at least make a short list and might allow you to choose a professional organizer in no time at all.
