7 years ago this week, On Task Organizing, LLC officially became a business. Taking the leap from a 9 to 5 employee to an solo entrepreneur was a scary, but I have enjoyed it, and I’ve learned so much over the years.
I was still working full time at my day job during my first year in business, but on weekends I would subcontract for other professional organizers or provide home organizing services to my own clients.
After the first year, when I had gained enough experience and education in the organizing industry, I left my day job to focus on running On Task Organizing full time. Since I began, I have achieved many things and my business continues to grow.
The most rewarding part of my job is working with my clients, getting to know them and helping them achieve their organizing or time management goals. Being able to make a significant change in their lives, saving them time, and reducing their stress is such a fulfilling experience.
Here are some milestones I’ve accomplished over the years:
Provided over 2,300 hours of hands-on organizing services.
Delivered over 300 car loads of my clients’ household donations to local charities.
Wrote 191 blog articles. Check back every Wednesday for a new one.
Spoke to 32 groups in the Raleigh area about various organizing topics.
Helped 185 families and businesses to better organize their homes and offices.
Started a monthly email newsletter.
Completed over 250 hours of training in various organizing and productivity course curriculum topics through the National Association of Productivity and Organizing Professionals. (NAPO)
Quoted in 60+ media articles including Reader’s Digest, Good Housekeeping and The Food Network.
Volunteered as a board member for the National Association of Productivity and Organizing Professionals North Carolina Chapter.
Achieved Superstar Blogger status on the Professional Organizers Blog Carnival.
Inducted into the NAPO Golden Circle and have become a regular participant in a NAPO Golden Circle Mastermind Group.
Earned the NAPO Residential Organizing Specialist Certificate.
Acquired the NAPO Life Transitions Specialist Certificate.
Obtained the NAPO Workplace Productivity Specialist Certificate.
Established my Time Management Consultation Services program.
Began offering DIY Organizing Consultations.
Launched my Virtual Organizing Services program.
Introduced my digital e-books to my readers, beginning with “How to Declutter Your Home to Prepare for Moving and Downsizing.”
Swallowed at least 200 Claritin tablets! I am allergic to dust, but I don’t let that stop me from doing what I love!
In my 7th year of business, I am looking forward to expanding my reach by creating more digital e-books, creating YouTube videos, speaking to more groups, helping more clients nationwide virtually, and continuing to provide hands-on organizing services to more Raleigh area residents.
I want to thank all of my clients, readers and social media sharers for your continued support of my business.
