Dinner with Julie Morgenstern

Wow, what a month! Last night I was invited to a dinner with several other Professional Organisers to welcome Julie Morgenstern to Australia (yes THE author of Organizing from the Inside Out).

We had a great discussion about differentiating the clients from those that have de-cluttering needs and those that have organisational needs. The de-cluttering clients are really about reducing the amount of 'stuff' and the organising clients need help setting up systems that they can maintain.

What was interesting to me was the comment from Julie that the need for Professional Organising is a universal thing. Wherever she goes it's a similar discussion of what the client needs are and what Organisers are providing. So many people have issues with organising and find such relief when they realise they don't have to tackle the problem by themselves. There is professional help out there!
