Professional Mentoring

I have been doing this a while, and Mick and I have built a multi six-figure business together. I love to help other Professional Organisers and Declutter Coaches through their challenges in their businesses so that they, too, can experience the success they are striving for (no matter what “success” means to them).

I’m not suitable for everyone (for example, I really annoy Type As!) but if you share my philosophies on organising, and identify with my flexible, informal approach to business, and my intuitive, compassionate, person-centered approach to working with clients, then I can help you!

1:1 Mentoring

This takes the form of in person or online meetings 1:1 with me.  I can either create a series of sessions for you or we can do them “on the fly”, catering to your specific needs at the time. You pay hourly with no long-term commitment necessary.

Topics are usually focused on your specific needs, unless you would like me to design a comprehensive program, which is definitely an option. See below for a bit more detail.

Small Group Mentoring

This takes the form of small groups of POs meeting (usually virtually unless I get enough participants in Adelaide or I go visiting!), to learn, share and discuss various topics relating to working as a PO or Declutter Coach. Topics can range from how to work with particular client needs, to what to have on your referral form, or how to find more clients and a myriad of other potential topics. 

Guidance, inspiration, validation, brainstorming… all designed to meet your specific needs! 

Upcoming 2024 Zoom group mentoring session dates:

Thursday 2nd of May 7pm (CST) Proposed topic: How to know your client before you even arrive

Thursday 30th of May 4:30pm (CST) Proposed topic: Feeling safe in your workplace

Thursday 27th June 7pm (CST) Proposed topic: What to do when you feel out of your depth

Thursday 25th of July 4:30pm (CST) Proposed topic: Helping families who are not all on the same page

 *Note: topics can be changed with group consensus

Who I can help

Professional mentoring is a great way to upskill, gain knowledge and insight, solve problems and look after your mental health when running a solo business.

Shoot me a message if you:

    • Want to know if the professional organising industry is “for you”
    • Want to improve your communication and conversations with your clients so you can best meet their needs
    • Aren’t sure how to price yourself
    • Want to work with NDIS participants
    • Want to start  public speaking, working with children, disabled people or the elderly, or another area you aren’t confident in
    • Want to understand complex clients better
    • Want to discuss a challenging situation to gain clarity
    • Are needing validation and confidence in your own abilities
    • Need help with setting boundaries
    • Want to learn more about mental health and its relationship to our stuff
    • Want to understand how neuro-diversity affects people’s relationships with their stuff 
    • Want someone to talk to someone in a similar business who “gets it” 
    • Want a set of “fresh eyes” on an issue
    • Are worried about competition in the market
    • Want to know how to find your authentic voice in your marketing
    • Want to run workshops but feel out of your depth

I am probably not the mentor for advice on:

    • Formal business planning and strategy (I don’t do much of this stuff the ‘proper’ way)
    • Teaching you how to organise spaces (I see that as something you need to learn yourself or should already know how to do)
    • Legal stuff apart from the basics (yes, you need insurance!)
    • Hiring staff
    • Making your social media pretty (I try, but it’s not my thing!)

I do know other mentors in our industry who are amazing at these last things though, so get in touch if you’d like their details.
