When I introduce myself and my business to folks, I say:
I deal with your "stuff" so you can spend your time and money on what you love.
It's kind of a vague statement, but that's because what professional organizers can do for you, and what your goal might be when you hire one, is wide-ranging.
A Professional Organizer can help those who are too busy, too confused, too tired, or too stressed to deal with their clutter themselves.
A Professional Organizer can help someone who has anxiety issues around getting organized and who needs a helping hand.
A Professional Organizer can help a couple in which one person is messier than the other, by acting as a neutral third party.
A Professional Organizer can help someone who wants to tackle an organizing project on the DIY and just needs a little "nudge" to get started.
When I'm talking about what Professional Organizers do, I also say that a major part of my mission is to reduce the stigma that some feel around hiring one. Some people seem to think that they "should" be able to complete any organizing project on their own, or that they "shouldn't" allow anyone to see their clutter.
As they say, please stop "should-ing" on yourself!
Getting help from a Professional Organizer is no different than getting help from any other professional or service person. I don't know about you, but I tried cutting my own hair a few times and it did not go well. So, now I go to a professional stylist who loves doing hair and who knows what she's doing. In high school, I did learn how to change my car's oil, but frankly I would rather pay someone to do it. I bet you have hired someone to tutor your kids, or sell your home, or to do any of the other things you don't know how to do, or don't have time to do, or just plain don't enjoy doing.
