  • I wouldn't think so if you're just helping people getting organized. Now, if you're dealing with a hoarder, that would require a specialized degree because that's not just a disorganization problem, it's a mental disorder.

  • THIS is a journal post by a friend...she is a CPO (Certified Professional Organizer). She is a very friendly person and I'm sure she would LOVE to give you any advice on getting started.

  • There are a couple of women in one of my networking groups who are professional organizers. Check with people you know; if you are on Linkedin, check your network.
