What is a Professional Organizer?
Written by Lisa Montanaro | September 9, 2011

When I was asked to describe what a professional organizer is recently, here was my response:

“A professional organizer is a life saving, good at listening, butt kicking, productivity boosting hero that uses his or her talents, skills, knowledge and passion to help clients live better lives and run better businesses.”

What is a professional organizer to YOU?” What do YOU think?

Helping others be the best versions of themselves gets me jazzed!

I’ve worn many hats in my lifetime—often at the same time—while enjoying fulfilling careers. I’ve been a performer, teacher, sign language instructor, lawyer, career counselor, law professor, coach, consultant, mediator, entrepreneur, speaker, trainer, writer, and author. 

I’m an eternal optimist and life-long learner, constantly researching ways to improve personal and professional effectiveness. And it brings me great joy to then pass on the results of that persistent curiosity to my clients and audiences. 

Of all the career hats I’ve been privileged to wear, my favorite is owner of this business since 2002. Why? Because it provides me the opportunity to work with wonderful organizational and individual clients. On any given day, I get to connect deeply with audiences, work with dedicated teams, improve workplaces, watch clients have a-ha moments, and know I’ve made a difference in their lives and careers. And that is very satisfying.
