Taking Online Classes in the Field
To get this home based business off the ground, you might consider taking online classes. At this time, there are no college degrees in the field. Moreover, studying professional organization is not a requirement for going into business. That being said, it is a good choice for the aspiring entrepreneur who wants to learn about breaking into the business and also running a lucrative business from home.
The Professional Organizer Training Academy is one venue where you may take online classes. The course consists of a study portion and an optional apprenticeship program; there are no exams to pass. If you choose to enroll for only the eight- to 10-hour course, the cost is $155. If you choose the apprenticeship option, which consists of yearlong email support by an industry insider, you pay $190. You will become intimately acquainted with the organization industry, the how-to of organization clients, and also the intricacies of running and marketing your start up business.
At the end of your studies, you should be able to walk into a client’s home and turn a disastrous closet into a well designed and ordered space. You can transform a dysfunctional kitchen into the heart of a home or change an unappealing office space littered with boxes into a structured, welcoming space. On a much smaller scale, you may also take boxes of photographs and enter them into albums or scrapbooks.
