I have had some exciting things take place in the past month. One being I am back to work as a Professional Organizer. I specialize in home and business, Ebay training/Sales, staging, small event planning, downsizing, packing and unpacking services and new home set up. What makes me unique in this area is my vast knowledge of Ebay - I have sold for 15 years and am a Power Seller and have been Top Rated as well. So many times my clients throw away or donate really good "stuff!"! Why not turn the "stuff" into cash! Also, instead of donating clothing items to Goodwill we try to find a women's shelter that may need some nice work clothes so these ladies can interview and get jobs. Or maybe donate gently used furniture to Habitat for Humanity Re Store (I served on their board before I moved) they offer great prices for individuals who may need a couch, refrigerator and a bed. I have found with recent clients they are afraid to do Ebay because they don't understand how it works and they are unsure about a Paypal account. I take that worry away! I have one client that listed and started selling last week and has made over $200 in just a few days with her buy it now option. She is SO excited she is addicted to listing and selling. Due to tax implications I cannot list their items on my account but I can help them list on their own and give them peace of mind that's it totally safe and worth the time invested.
Since "re opening" in Mid-December my calendar has been filling up. I offered a discount for mom's from school just to get my foot in the door and get started. It's been thrilling to know that my friend have entrusted me with their items. Word of mouth really is the best advertising. I am also working with 2 local realtors and they have placed my name in their inter office directory as an organizer. One realtor has older clients who are selling their large home, downsizing and need help sorting, packing and unpacking.
A Hoarded Dining Room
The Happily Ever After!!
As you can see from above hoarding is one thing I have worked a lot! It's not an easy task, these individuals really need help digging out, literally! These jobs normally take anywhere from a few weeks to a few months to complete. On this job I was one of 4 organizers called in to help. This particular room was assigned to me and it took me about 4 days from start to finish.
Periodically I will feature pics and articles on my blog. You can also visit my FACEBOOK page at MY Vision Organizing and LIKE my page. I'd appreciate it!!
The other exciting thing I have going is I am headed to Europe with my oldest daughter at the end of February. It's school trip and we will visit Austria, Germany and France. I cannot wait.
I hope the New Year finds you all well. I will be blogging and posting many pics about my trip so be
sure to check back.
