New Year – New Business?

Are you thinking that this is the year to start your own business? Do you want to be a Professional Organizer?

When I was the president of the Washington DC chapter of NAPO (National Association of Professional Organizers) I often met new business owners, only to watch them struggle to get their business off the ground. Soon they would disappear from the landscape and I would find out that they had moved on to other business pursuits.

Why? I think most were good at “organizing”. I think what they lacked was the business skills needed for a start-up and the knowledge of how to organize others. Time was an issue. Everyone in business needs to make money and after a few months counting pennies, new organizers often give up. I know! I did this. But it doesn’t have to be this way.
