Over eight years ago, I started out as a new organizing expert. I knew that I had the expertise to organize. I knew I could keep things organized in my own house. And I knew I could teach kids how to keep things organized since I did it in my classroom for years. But building an organizing business was totally new to me. And while I could organize anything, I wasn’t sure how to build a business. So if you are looking to grow your organizing business, then I have some tips for you!

Create A Business Plan

The best thing to do when starting out as a new organizing expert is to create your business plan. Now, this may sound silly, but having a plan for how you will build and grow your business is going to be super helpful. Especially on those days, you question what you are doing…because you will!

So creating a business plan can help guide you. I have more in-depth information on how to create a business plan, along with other business tips below.

How To Market Your Organizing Business

Join A Mastermind

Masterminds are basically a group of people who want to learn together. There typically is someone who has more expertise in an area leading the mastermind group. And each week the mastermind meets, there are different topics that are covered. 

My all-time favorite mastermind I was a part of was held weekly. Each week we would share our goals for the coming week along with checking in on last weeks’ goals. We would then learn about a new topic. Things like business 101, marketing, content creation, building clients, networking, etc. 

I learned so much about building a business from that mastermind. And that is what the foundation is for the Organizing Experts Mastermind

This mastermind is for professional organizers and organizing experts who are looking to build their business. Each week we are discussing new topics, network, and supporting one another. You can find more about the Organizing Experts Mastermind here.

Find Other Like-Minded Business Owners

Another way to grow your organizing business is to find other like-minded business owners. I have done this by attending in-person conferences and workshops. I have gone to networking events. And I have joined masterminds and groups for business owners.

In these groups, you can quickly find people who are on the same page as you. Who want to grow their businesses. And you can learn a lot from one another.

As an introvert, I have found it tricky to just jump into these groups. That is why I needed a group like a mastermind. It has helped me feel more comfortable with the group because there was an agenda and structure to follow. I didn’t need to get worried about small talk. 

By finding others who were in the same boat as I am, I was able to build my business because of who I am surrounding myself with. 


Invest In Your Business

One thing I learned early on is that if you are going to actually have a business, you need to invest in it! Putting your hard-earned money into something other than your bank account can be scary. I had a hard time investing in things when I first started. I would spend time searching the internet for hours to find examples of business plans of other organizing experts. And I would watch hours of YouTube videos to see how to set up a website. But when my daughter was born, I needed to outsource some of the online searching. So I paid for an online course. I found it so helpful that I ended up paying more for an in-person retreat. It was a lot of money at the time but I knew I had to do it if I wanted to build a business. And from there, I have attended other events, conferences, purchased courses, guidebooks, workbooks, and paid for mentorships and masterminds. All of these opportunities have helped build and grow my business because I was able to learn from others who have been there. 

How To Grow As An Organizing Expert

Start by making a business plan if you want to grow as an organizing expert. Join a mastermind with like-minded organizers and someone who has expertise on the topic you want to learn more about. Find other like-minded business owners to network with. And invest in your business. Now you can get all of that by investing in the Organizing Experts Mastermind
