“I wrote Mastering the Business of Organizing A Guide to Plan, Launch, Manage, Grow, and Leverage a Profitable, Professional Organizing Business along with the Institute for Professional Organizers™ curriculum and program because I believe in the immense value of this profession. I want others who aspire to it to represent the industry as experienced and knowledgeable professionals. I also want to share my learning in the hopes that others will benefit greatly from my experiences. You don’t have to suffer through figuring out how to start on your own business and wondering if you are doing it right. You will benefit immediately by learning what took me years and hard lessons to know.” Anne Blumer, CPO

“I am extremely organized in my own home and love every bit of the organizing process. I had considered starting my own business for a long time but always dismissed the thought because I didn’t think I could be successful. I ordered Anne Blumer’s Mastering the Business of Organizing before signing up for her Institute for Professional Organizers, Self- Study Education program and Seminar/Client Practicum. The book is filled with valuable information for anyone trying to start their own professional organizing business. Anne provides great detail to the entire business process. There is the beginning basics, start-up information, the organizing process, working with clients, and how to keep your business running. I learned so much from Anne Blumer and also gained experience, which gave me the confidence to start my own business.
Mastering the Business of Organizing continues to be a great guide to me in my business endeavors.”

“To get a sense for who Anne Blumer is, and how practical and enjoyable this book will be for you, please do read the book’s preface about her journey. You’ll read in there what I know about Anne, as we have worked on the Board for the Institute for Challenging Disorganization together and continue our friendship today. All of it will help you see how right she is to be the one creating this book for you.

She has a high sense of integrity, a great sense of humor, lots of compassion, fairness, intelligence and she is inquisitive. Her corporate background has served her very well as she has grown this business. Why make the mistakes people before us have made; learn from their experiences and feel more confident right away with clients and in running and growing your business.

This book is unique, as is her education program, in that she not only teaches you about organization but also about running a successful, sustainable, growing business. Trust me, Anne will be by your side, lending compassion along with accountability, as you walk forward together, Mastering the Business of Organizing.”
