What will it take for you to finally ask for help?

Asking for help

Often, people are hesitant to ask for help when it comes to organizing. They feel embarrassed that they’re stuck or overwhelmed. That somehow, they should know how to move through this on their own. There is a fear of being judged or seen as weak that keeps people paralyzed in their situation.

Making the call for help is the hardest part for most people. I’m sensitive to this struggle and appreciate the strength people show in asking me to support them through their project. You are not alone in needing help. I have often said, if people didn’t need organizing help, I wouldn’t have had this business for 20 years. It’s been rewarding to witness my clients thrive – achieving their goals and improving their homes/lives. The regret is waiting so long to make that initial contact. So, I’m sharing a few steps to motivate you to make that call sooner.

1. Investigate

Chances are, if you are reading this post, you are already considering hiring a Professional Organizer. Check out the rest of my website. You may find answers to your questions, there are testimonials from past clients and some more blog posts to motivate you. The National Association of Productivity and Organizing Professionals (NAPO) has some inspirational blog posts too. Google to find articles on the type of organizing you’re interested in working on (basements, clothes or paper).

2. Identify Your Needs

Do you need help downsizing, moving or improving the space you live or work in? Are you struggling with grief, ADHD or overwhelmed with a life transition? You want to hire an organizer who provides the help you need. Think about your goals, budget and time frame, this will help you find the right person to work with you. It’s okay, if you’re not sure exactly what type of help you need. When you are completely besieged, it’s understandable that you’re not able to articulate all your needs immediately. In that case, you will need to look for someone who is patient and experienced.

3. Ask Questions

It’s okay to interview a few organizers to see who you feel comfortable with. A good fit between the organizer and the client is an important part of the process. Trust is critical for success. I’m happy to have a chat and answer any questions. A phone conversation is the best way for me to understand what your goals are and for me explain how I work. Hiring a Professional Organizer is often a very big step, and I encourage you to move at your own pace. When you call, there is no obligation or expectation for you to set up an appointment.
