Are you interested in becoming a professional organizer? Are you an organizer who strives to take your business to the next level? Do you need assistance with business planning, marketing, and other issues that entrepreneurs struggle with?

A large percentage of my client base over years has been, and continues to be, professional organizers. I provide coaching to those who aspire to become professional organizers, and for organizers at every level.  I LOVE coaching, consulting and training my peer organizing colleagues throughout the US and beyond. The industry has grown by leaps and bounds, and has become more “professional” than ever before. It is an exciting time to run an organizing business.

As an inaugural Certified Professional Organizer (CPO), a Golden Circle member of NAPO, the moderator of the Ask the Organizer Panel for three years at the annual conference, and a frequent speaker at NAPO annual, regional and chapter events, I am blessed to be a leader in the organizing industry.  I know what it takes to be a successful professional organizer, and to be a thriving entrepreneur.  I still run an organizing business and use team members that are independent contractors to service my hands-on clients.  I am open about my journey as a business owner and professional organizer, and share my lessons learned freely with my professional organizer colleagues, many of whom are my clients.

As a professional organizer, decade-long successful business owner, trainer of entrepreneurs, and former practicing attorney, I am uniquely qualified to offer high-level business coaching and consulting to professional organizers.

Cena_Black-200x300“I’m proud to say that Lisa is someone I consider to be a role model and mentor in the professional organizing/productivity consulting industry. She has been instrumental in my business decision making and growth. Her background in law and running her own solo-preneur business is incredibly valuable. She is extremely intelligent, very experienced in all areas that organizers/productivity consultants need to attend to, and she is an incredibly conscientious and generous listener.

When I was new to the industry, I felt a conflict and hesitation in paying for someone to answer my questions – but I have grown to shift my paradigm. The guidance of a mentor and professional saves an incredible amount of time and energy in the long run. After hiring several coaches for myself – I can only say that I wish I had invested sooner into a coach/mentor relationship. Lisa’s guidance is treasured and I have no reservations recommending her and paying her for her expertise. It will be some of the best investment dollars you can spend on yourself and your business!”~ Cena Block, The Mom-preneur Clarity Catalyst, Owner of Sane Spaces, NAPO-NNJ Chapter President 2011-2012

Coaching slots are available on a first come, first serve basis. When I receive your payment, I will email you a pre-session questionnaire (Coaching Profile) so that I can become more familiar with what you want to work on and we can jump right in.

If you think you may want longer term support, let’s set up a Discovery Call to chat first and see if a VIP Intensive or Platinum Level Coaching Program may be a better fit.
