"I recently was a victim of a large company lay-off. My choices were limited considering I gave up teaching English to work in the private sector and did not want to return to the classroom. I came across your guide after following the advice of a friend who suggested I should look into becoming a professional organizer since I have been doing it pretty much all my life for free. I have decided to pursue it and the grief I felt for losing a job I loved has changed to overwhelming excitement for the months ahead. The guide is awesome. It includes everything I had questions about and a mountain of resources to help build my business in various stages. Thank you--it was well worth the very small charge."
