I am two-thirds of the way through earning my “credential” as a Certified Professional Organizer in Chronic Disorganization (CPO-CD®) program. I am incredibly proud of this educational journey I have embarked upon! This 20-month program requires an investment of me as a professional organizer of over $3000, and 200+ hours of coursework, lots of reading, writing, and analyzing books related to Chronically Disorganized (CD) clients, as well as service in my industry. I think education matters in my desire to work with CD clients. This program is not required or necessary as a professional organizer, but for me, it’s testament of my commitment to provide specialized help, especially to my CD clients. Though I have 6 months more to go, I am (already) much more qualified and equipped than my competition, and I’m in a position to be of greater service to my client’s needs.
For me the purpose of earning this NAPO Specialist Certificate in Residential Organizing was three fold:
- To focus on factors affecting the development and management of my business.
- To gain a greater understanding and awareness of my Client Interaction by focusing on them, and relating to them through recognition and boundaries. And to help transfer organizing skills.
- The classes also offer a variety of subjects to sharpen my current skill-sets, and to add new tools to my toolbox to expand my marketability and services.
I look forward to working with you and helping you feel the bright spot in organizing!
