After serving clients for more than 15 years and training new Professional Organizers, Organizing KC Owner Shawna Childers has developed an 8 week Professional Organizer Training Program that will walk you through the ins and outs of what it takes to become a successful Professional Organizer that keeps getting client referrals!
This 8 week Professional Organizer Training Program will allow you to work one-on-one with Shawna weekly to help develop and hone your professional organizing skills and business plan. She will provide with you the tools you need to understand how to best work with many different types of clients, grow your organizing business, and prepare you for roadblocks that might appear while dealing with clients.
This class is hosted on Google Classroom. Each week will have a video class and selected readings. Homework is required and will need to be finished before moving on to the next week’s topic.
Each week also includes one 30 minute meeting with Shawna to answer any questions or to help guide you to resources or more information.
This program can be flexible and completed at your own pace. If you need to take 2 or 3 weeks on a specific topic, that is ok! You will schedule your meetings with Shawna as you go.
