Virtual Organizing can refer to organizing your digital life, organizing a virtual event, or working with a Professional Organizer virtually through programs, coaching, and virtual sessions.
I've been a Professional Organizer for 15 years and for the past 5 years I've been solely working as a Virtual Organizer. I absolutely love the process and being able to help even more people.
How Does it Work?
Professional Organizers that work virtually have their unique models. We each have our own approach, personalities, and expertise. This is why it is very important to find one that fits your needs and that you feel comfortable with.
My model has evolved over the past few years because through trial and error I have learned what formats work best. Much like when we are trying new systems to get organized it is important to evaluate what works and what doesn't.
Working with Me
Self-Directed Decluttering Programs:
I have three self-directed programs. One that helps you declutter the living areas of your home, another for paper & digital organization, and one for photo organization. Each of these gets you on your path to reducing what you have to make getting organized easier.
These are a great option for people who simply want to reduce clutter and have a good sense of how to organize what they will have in the end.
They are step-by-step programs in video format that you can work on at your own pace.
My Declutter & Get Organized Resource Hub is an affordable solution where you can get all your questions answered for home business and life organizing.
There is also a PLUS option you can upgrade to where you get group coaching and accountability from me. I host a weekly coaching call on Zoom and hold weekly virtual organizing sessions on Zoom where you have time to work on your organizing project with my assistance.
Private sessions are done in Zoom and are customized to your needs. That means if you just need to talk about your struggles, get direction from me, and then go off to work on your own we would typically do one call each week.
Some people need more accountability and guidance while they work so we do actual sessions where they work while we are on the call. These sessions are typically for 3 hours.
Is Virtual Organizing Right for You?
Virtual organizing is perfect for the person who doesn't want to or can’t have (I’m writing this during the pandemic) someone in their home or their office. Some people have anxiety about that, others simply want to work with someone who isn’t local to them. I love that if you love my style of teaching and you live across the world we can still work together.
I've worked with hundreds of clients over the years and I can tell you many times, I would show up at people's homes, and they would say, I almost canceled last minute. There's a lot of fear and shame around being disorganized but there shouldn't be. I've seen it all and will never judge you! All I see when I see your space, is how can I help? I don't see the mess.
With virtual organizing, you can show me what you're dealing with but you don't have to. This is especially helpful when we are dealing with paperwork and digital files. While I can assure you that I will keep everything confidential some people just don’t want someone else seeing their private stuff. I won’t stumble upon your credit card debt or any legal papers you may have.
For virtual organizing to work for you, you must be able to be open about your challenges, take direction, and do the work.
While it isn’t necessary if you can get help from a family member or friend it can make the process go faster. It is however very important that the person helping you be objective and trust the direction I give.
One of my members gave me this testimonial that brought tears to my eyes. I'm sharing it here because it embodies everything I want people to feel and experience.
