For more than 15 years I’ve worked as a professional organizer, primarily going into people’s homes or businesses to help them create organizational solutions, helping to figure out what matters most to them, and then providing creative ways to let go of things that no longer serve them. This work is personal, it’s mostly face-to-face, I love it, and I miss it! It’s by far the longest “job” I’ve had and it’s a big part of my identity.
For at least the foreseeable future, I can’t do this work in person. Even once we do “re-open,” I imagine people will be a little hesitant to have someone come into their home or work space, and I get that. What I’m realizing more and more, the longer I’m away from my clients and spending time thinking about my work, is that I’m not hired because of my ability to shuffle stuff around physically. Someone could hire a strapping young college dude to do that! I’m hired because of my organizing brain and ability to problem solve in a customized way that works for my clients.
So what does this mean right now? As it turns out, I can still bring my organizing brain to you while we’re apart. If you find yourself longing to stay on track with your goals, need the accountability of a trusted partner, and you need that outside organizing brain to help you problem solve, I hope you’ll consider working together virtually. I’ve had great success with clients who have tried it—for both small and large projects. Via FaceTime or Zoom, we can still “be together” in your space while we create your own little corner of “neatness.”
In this day of tele-health, tele-therapy, take-out, and time off from all of our regular activities, we’re all getting more creative about the way we work and live. If you finally find you have the time to tackle a project or three and need some help, let me know. I’m currently offering 1-2 hour virtual appointments between the hours of 10am and 4pm EST. Email me (perri at neat-freak dot com) for more information or to schedule your first virtual appointment.
