About
Many professional organizers say that they do not work with chronically disorganized clients. A smaller percentage, however, would agree that most people who seek the services of a professional organizer share one or more characteristics of being chronically disorganized. So, which is it? How does one tell? What does it really mean to be chronically disorganized? And how does the professional organizer deal with the chronic-ness of chronic disorganization? Using case studies and client challenges, this session is designed for a beginner audience of professional organizers.
