Every organiser comes to professional organising via a different path. Our past life experiences, our values and beliefs, our personalities, all shape us in different ways. We bring those experiences, values, beliefs and personalities to our work with clients. In the end, just like there is a lid for every pot, there is an organiser for every client (and a client for every organiser).
Here are some stories from professional organisers about what brought them to this line of work, and what keeps them here. Happy reading! I hope you feel inspired.
