I am Annette McCaughtry, Professional Organizer and CEO of Paper To Pearls Organizing Solutions LLC. I love organizing just about anything, however I particularly enjoy (and specialize in) Paper Management & File Systems, Closet Organizing, and Wardrobe Styling.
- Member of the National Association Of Professional Organizers (NAPO)
- Board Member: Director of Professional Development for NAPO Austin Chapter
- Member of the San Antonio Chapter of NAWBO (National Association of Women Business Owners.)
DEFINITION: Professional organizing is a skilled “HELPING SERVICE” that provides expertise, understanding and nonjudgmental solutions to the client who has an environment filled with challenges associated with clutter.
All Professional Organizers have a GIFT for organizing THINGS (Paperwork, Clothing, Photos, Ideas, Systems, Time, etc). Some organizers become specialists in certain areas.
- Residential: Closets, kitchens, garages, home filing systems
- Business related: Systems improvements, business filing make overs, etc
- Personal coaches: Time management
I’d love to ask you all TWO QUESTIONS:
???: How many of you hire either a….
- CPA – to do your taxes
- Lawyer – to do your will
- Website Specialist – to set up and manage your website
- Hair Stylist – to cut your hair
- etc…..You get where I’m leading you….
WE INVEST IN OURSELVES AND OUR BUSINESSES BY ENLISTING HELP IN AREAS THAT ARE NOT OUR SPECIALTY, NOT OUR GIFT, AND NOT OUR EXPERTISE. We do this so that we can:
- Save Time
- Do more of what we love, or are passionate about
- Release ourselves from doing tasks that we hate doing, or maybe are “burdened” with doing because we aren’t “wired” to do them well
My point is, you accept and recognize that doing certain tasks are either
- not in your skill set
- you weren’t born with the ability or interest in doing them
- you would rather let a professional do them for you so that you can focus on your expertise
- or you have done it over and over again and are just ready to MOVE ON and NOT do it any more.
NEVER BE ASHAMED IF YOU HAVE AN AREA OR A TASK THAT YOU LACK THE ORGANIZING SKILLS TO DO!!!
MY ADVICE: INVEST IN YOURSELF OR YOUR BUSINESS AND HIRE HELP!!!
???: My second question is ….. How many of you have a home or business environment that is….
- …somewhat DISORDERLY
- ….somewhat CLUTTERED and CRAMPED
- ….ANYTHING BUT PEACEFUL??
PLEASE KNOW that you are not alone. Millions of households have challenging environments in this day and age of fast paced lifestyles.
I am EXTREMELY PASSIONATE about helping busy women create:
- ORDERLY Environments
- SPACIOUS Living Areas
- and, most of all…..a PEACEFUL Lifestyle
I can help with just about every type of PERSONAL or PROFESSIONAL organizing project.
I OFFER FREE 30 MINUTE PHONE CONSULTATIONS – CALL ME TO BOOK A TIME
I am excited to be working in a field that I am passionate about … that helps women to be the BEST THEY CAN BE!!!
