Dear friend,

You will be rewarded emotionally . . . and financially!

Do you have your own professional organizing business, or are you thinking of starting one? This field can be extremely rewarding, both emotionally and financially.

The Emotional Rewards: you're about to help people change their lives for the better. As you help people get organized, you're freeing them from clutter, stress, chaos and frustration. You're helping them find more time for themselves and their families. You're giving them pride in their surroundings. You're making them happier people. You're helping them reach their goals. What a wonderful feeling to be helping people achieve such wonderful things in their lives!

The Financial Rewards: you're about to embark on an extremely profitable endeavor--one that can help you make anywhere from a few hundred extra dollars a month, to thousands and thousands of dollars a month! The financial rewards are especially gratifying, because they're unlimited. There is no end to how much money you could make in this business.

You can start, and grow, this business on a shoe-string budget!

Starting and growing a professional organizing business doesn't require lots of capital. It doesn't require you to spend thousands on advertising. You don't have to go out and buy expensive equipment. You don't have to invest in any special training.

You basically have to have two things:

  1. a knack for helping people get organized and
  2. a desire to run your own successful business.

That's it.

You could be making huge profits!

My company, Get Organized Now!, has been very profitable from the very first day we started in 1996.

In the beginning, I was conducting personal organizing sessions and workshops--actually going to homes and offices to help people organize their cupboards, file cabinets, closets, basements, desks and more.

I was making, on average, $2000 per month. At the time I thought, 'Wow, $2000 a month on a business that I just started!' I thought that was really amazing.

Actually, that was nothing compared to how financially successful my business has grown since then.

I quickly discovered you could really customize this business to your liking. You can simply conduct a few personal organizing sessions each month and do very well. Or you could do even better by adding workshops, consulting, writing a book, selling products--and even more!

The professional organizing field is one of those unlimited growth fields. You can take it to the financial level you choose.

For example, right now my sales are averaging $15,000 to $20,000 per month, and growing--and I still have plenty of time to spend with my family and friends, take long lunch breaks, go on vacation, enjoy my weekends without working, go to the movies, read my favorite magazines, take long walks and pretty much everything else I love to do.

Why am I telling you this? Because you could also be making a huge chunk of money, and enjoying the same carefree life that I have.

How can you make your sales soar?

Many people want to know how my company became so profitable, in such a short span of time. So, I basically met with people for $75 an hour and told them how I did it, and how they could do it too.

But time and geography limited the number of people I could actually share this information with. So I needed another solution.

I wanted to be able to share all of the discoveries I've made over the years, in a way that would be as cost-effective as possible for you.

I learned that while many people were willing to invest $75 per hour for me to consult with them, some people were not able to afford that kind of fee. And since my time was so valuable, I couldn't afford to meet with people for less than that.

So, I thought and I thought. I really racked my brain to come up with a solution.

Suddenly, the light bulb went on--I could put all of my years of experience and knowledge into a comprehensive guide. And that's just what I did. That's when the Ultimate Guide for Professional Organizers was born.

I just wanted to say thank you for your wonderful guide, The Ultimate Guide for Professional Organizers. Once I started reading, I wasn't able to put it down. It has so many great ideas.

I received another book that said it was going to help me out too, but it was a waste of my time and money. I would have paid double your price for your valuable information. Thanks!

You'll benefit from my business experience!

To give you a little background on myself, I worked for 10 years with Dun and Bradstreet’s Nielsen Media Research in New York City as an organizing, marketing and management specialist. Throughout my tenure, I managed the data analysis department, worked with hundreds of television stations and advertising agencies, and developed effective, productive systems for my clients and staff.

In 1996, I moved to Wisconsin, and founded Get Organized Now! I have literally helped thousands of individuals and businesses get organized since then. In fact, my Get Organized Now! Web site is visited by nearly a million people per year, and I have close to 100,000 subscribers on my newsletter list

Just to name a few, I have appeared at, wrote for, or have been interviewed by hundreds of international, national and local media and organizations such as:

I just wanted to compliment you on your Ultimate Guide for Professional Organizers! I think that it is a great resource that has lots of very useful and informative information.

I met someone at the NAPO 2001 Conference who suggested I buy the manual, so I did. I'm so happy to have the manual. I've also referred many fellow organizers to your site to buy it!

I'm the NAPO-LA New Member Coordinator and I am happy to recommend your manual to the new organizers. Thanks for such a great resource!
