It was a great resource as a new organizer and easy to follow because of the bulleted format used throughout the book.

I am now very unclear at how the cost of this book came to be as compared to other books that offer far more information. Maybe it is Get Rich Selling Outlines. This one is written in a way more like an outline or grocery list of topics to cover. Does not seem to give in depth attention to the subject at hand. The author lists many things with very little elaboration. I would not recommend this book at the price it is selling for. I am disappointed that I spent this money, I could have 3 books for the price of this one(or storage items!) and much more information. But I have read the book and so can not return it. I would very much recommend the book How to Start a Home based Professional Organizing Business by Dawn Noble.

Format: Paperback
"Get Rich Organizing" contains a wealth of up-to-date information on working in the organizing industry, including certification, membership in industry associations, professional organizer specialties, desired characteristics, and even what's involved in a typical day. In addition, it covers topics that are important for all businesses, such as writing a business plan, setting fees, legal and taxation issues, as well as marketing and branding.

That in itself would make it a useful reference, but the author does not stop there.

The second part of the book is devoted to specific aspects of working with clients. Many of the books I've read do not address the organizing process, assuming that you wouldn't become a professional organizer unless you already had organizing skills, but there is a world of difference between organizing for family and friends while you hang out together and organizing for strangers who are paying you good money for your expertise! This book will help to prepare you for a wide range of organizing projects and challenging clients and help you avoid embarrassing or costly mistakes.

The thorough information is supplemented by a dozen forms you can adapt as needed for your own business, for needs assessments, letters of agreement, and much more.

Most chapters include exercises to encourage you to put the information into practice, and in some cases the assignment is to prepare a workshop based on the information in the chapter. I especially like this approach, because having material already developed means you'll be able to accept when someone asks you to speak on short notice.

I have to admit that I was shocked when I first saw the price of the book, but now that I've read it and seen how packed it is with valuable information and resources, I am confident that it will help you earn back the cover price many times over.

I don't often leave reviews but this book was disappointing. Not a lot of detail on the critical aspects of starting a business and certainly no advice on "getting rich"! The information wasn't "bad" per se, just not enough of it and the title of the book HUGELY overstates it. A "Survival" guide? Not for me.

If I had to sum it up in one sentence, I would say that "this book needs to be on every new organizers book shelf!"

Getting Rich has not a whole lot to do with money, it has to do with getting a rich experience from being a professional organizer and giving the richest experience for your clients (and yourself). The money just comes along with the experiences.

Anne Blumer, CPO shares her passion and dedication throughout the book and it's clear she is good at what she does. She mentioned in the book early on, that when she started her business, no such book existed. I couldn't agree more, that this book would have saved me a lot of time and energy when I started my business.

With her vast knowledge of the industry and as the owner of the Professional Organizing Institute, she shares a wealth of information on running an organizing business. Who wouldn't want to tap into that? She examines every step needed in starting a business, as well as gives you the tools needed to get right out into the field and properly assess your clients needs.

Everyone has the ability to be an organizer, but running an organizing business is an entirely different story. Anne really can equip you with everything needed to run your business and then some!

Great job Anne! As a five year business owner and professional organizer, I was able to get a lot of great ideas and information that I too can implement into my business... A great investment for any professional organizer starting out!

So happy I purchased this book! It was a great resource as a new organizer and easy to follow because of the bulleted format used throughout the book. It also has excellent forms and business checklists - they were so helpful in getting me started. You won't be disappointed if you buy the book just for the forms and checklists (although you would be smart to read the whole thing!). It was easy for me to take what I learned from the book and create my own business plan, forms and client processes that included my niche and interests.

Now as a more experienced organizer, I still refer to this book at least on a monthly basis to ensure I'm doing everything I can to run a successful business. This book keeps on giving as your business starts growing!
