If there is one thing I know, you are unique, and so is your career path. With 20+ years in the trenches as a professional organizer, on-air talent, international trainer/instructor, author of decluttering/hoarding books (translated into 13 languages), and paid speaker, I have experienced a lot of twists and turns in my career. It’s given me plenty of opportunities to streamline my entire line of essential business forms (professional toolkits). The toolkits contain templates, forms, checklists and more. Don’t reinvent the wheel! These toolkits provide cost-effective strategies and solutions to enhance your effectiveness as a professional organizer. I recommend that all professional organizers start with my best-selling Terms of the Trade Glossary because what you don’t know can hurt you – and your brand.

Upbeat, Engaging, and Encouraging

It wasn’t until I was 61 years old that I decided to reinvent myself and become a professional organizer. A few months after I opened my organizing business, I set out to learn everything I could about the industry.

I took Geralin’s NAPO 104 class, Starting an Organizing Business. Geralin is upbeat, engaging and encouraging — even humorous. Early on, I struggled with confidence, especially about what to charge. Geralin has been my biggest cheerleader. She encouraged me to join my local NAPO chapter. Through my involvement, I’ve had opportunities to learn and grow that I never would have if I had stayed in my comfort zone.

Geralin is passionate about helping others develop their potential. She’s a joy to learn from and always makes you feel valued, capable, and cared about.
