    From a recent participant:
    “Janet is an excellent instructor regarding not only the aspects in working as a professional organizer, but just as importantly, the nuances of having your own business. Her course outline was thorough and easy to take notes and refer back to when needed. In addition, she was quick to identify other organizers to review and identify their successes, and in some cases, incorporate their products specifically designed for professional organizers. I am so grateful for the attention and information I received during this course and highly recommend others looking to enter the business of being a professional organizer to attend her course.”
