If you spend thirty minutes shared between the results of a Google search on "how to be a professional organizer" and the NAPO web site, you'll know just as much as you will after spending thirty bucks on this book.
My suggestion would be to skip this book and buy Dawn Noble's book, How to Start a Home-Based Professional Organizing Business, (which I bought at the same time). Noble's book has all the details you could want and covers many more topics in much more depth - at half the price. It was significantly more helpful.
One other thought: before Pederson's book even arrived, I got an email from the author (why the heck does she have my email address, first of all). Her email was of the "thanks for buying my book, let me tell you a little about myself" genre. In her email, she spent plenty of time telling me about the services she offers (for a fee) to help new professional organizers. I thought it was a little odd but I just deleted it and moved on.Read more ›
One of the first book titles that fell into my hands was Sara's. This is now almost my daily reference guide! With her helpful pro-con advice I was able to make an educated decison about launching my career in this field. I have taken all of her advice, especially about not underpricing myself, and only 2 months into taking paying clients I have had 9 clients, 3 of which have and/or are currently doing thier WHOLE house AND storage units with me! I average about $1000-1500 per individual contract now. Did I mention I have hardly had to advertise yet? Sara's referral system is incredibly lucrative, and I am highly confident when things slow down her solid marketing techniques will keep me afloat. She is so creative, clear, and organized in her text that it gets me pumped up everytime I crack the pages. I learned something new and profound for my business on every page. NO LIE! I especially appreciated her 8 week start up plan, and her many resource lists (I think I've used them all by now). What more do I need to say?Read more ›
