I love leading organizing teams. The amount of work we can get done in a short period of time amazes me. Back in 2012, I wrote a blog post called Working with an organizing team that outlined some of the advantages of hiring an organizing team, rather than a single organizer. Eight years later, all of that is still true!
I’ve been leading teams since 2008. What started as something I did only occasionally has turned into the mainstay of my business. I stopped taking new one-on-one clients some years back (though I do work with individually with some legacy clients) and my team members sometimes work one-on-one with clients who prefer that slower, more deliberate approach. But the vast majority of Peace of Mind Organizing’s work is team organizing.
Here are a couple of pictures of a case in point. We were able to give this food professional back her workspace in just two (long) days. In addition to this main area, there was a large back area filled with boxes and bins. Sixty-five human hours were spent creating a decluttered and organized workspace. Obviously, if only one organizer were working, it would have taken weeks, instead of just a couple of days.
It is such rewarding work creating swift transformations for people who are able to let go of things quickly and whose budget allows for the up-front investment. My team members are talented and cheerful and full of compassion and good spirit. I feel so fortunate to be able to provide this service to my clients!
