Course Decription
At the start of our career as Professional Organizers and/or Productivity Consultants, the thrill that clients are willing to pay for our skills makes us open to working with any client or on any project that comes our way. What happens over time as our business and our skill-sets evolve? In this interactive session, a panel of NAPO members share the evolution of their careers: the vision with which they began, how they started, what they have accomplished, and where they are headed. Panelists share case studies and infographics, and provide attendees with opportunities to set SMART goals for their own career path. This session is for new business owners seeking a framework for longevity in this industry, and seasoned professionals considering new ways to grow their career.

Learning Objectives
