New professional organizers rarely know where to begin, what to purchase, or whom to trust. Many aren’t sure if they’re going to fail or sail. That’s why I created this page. I invite you to take your time. Look around. Read the frequently asked questions and answers. Then, take a deep breath.

I’ll begin by introducing you to my very best selling products: two glossaries–better known as the Terms of the Trade (TOT)–and the editable New Organizers’ Essentials (NOE) kit, which contains all the business forms, templates, checklists, and information required to launch and grow your business. The TOT and NOE are the perfect starting place for aspiring professional organizers like you. You’ll have everything you need to onboard clients and talk the talk with clients, colleagues, therapists, and other professionals.

Next, explore “Geralin’s Grand Brand Plan,” which is a free downloadable checklist that will help you strategically brand your business to attract and maintain loyal clients. I highly recommend you use this free checklist before contacting a web designer as it will help prepare you for the questions you’ll be answering. The organizer in you knows that being prepared saves time and money.

If you’re working on a shoestring budget, I’ve put together a “bundle and save” package which includes one 60-minute Ask Me Anything Coaching Call and the New Organizers’ Essentials kit.  Purchase them together and save $25.00. During the AMA call, as the name implies, you really can ask me anything.

Finally, I recommend that you put your business processes and procedures in place. Make time to learn about theory, practical applications, and the nuts and bolts of owning and running a business before jumping into the deep end, doing hands-on client work. It’s tempting to fake it till you make it but I advise against it. Set yourself up for success. I’d love to help you!

Okay, let’s move onto some of the questions I’m asked most frequently.
