Little Miss Organised

Posted By on Apr 28, 2011 | 3 comments


I was at a farewell party this evening chatting to someone I went to school with. And they were talking about their plans for the future and how they wanted to start their own company etc etc etc. And it got me thinking…

Although I am a positive person, I have been known to think of all the things that could go wrong. And since I’m not a risk taker, my head has thought up a whole lot of reasons why I shouldn’t do this or shouldn’t do that. But at the same time, my head has already provided valid reasons/answers to my queries or concerns…

I have realised that I have a natural affinity to being organised. And I have been thinking that this could be something that people need or are looking for. Perhaps a helpful hand in getting your office in order, or getting your cupboard decluttered? BUT…

I know I couldn’t just up and quit my job and then start my own business. It would have to be a more gradual change, say working over the weekends or after hours on my “project”, and keeping the dayjob during the week until I have enough clients etc to be able to afford to go on my own. Would that work? Or would I end up getting bogged down and not have time for myself? And then I wonder whether there is a need for someone (me) to come in and organise your life. Would it be needed? Would you pay for a service like that? And how much would you pay?

I know it will take more than a blog post to come to a decision, but I’m hoping that I’ll get some feedback… So bring it! 🙂

  2. Go for it – thousands of people *do* pay for a service like that. Better still, you could help people learn to get organised themselves. Some people pay thousands to have an organiser/life coach person teach them how to manage and declutter their homes/offices/time and lives in general…
    As for what you would charge, I reckon work out how much your time is worth. Like, how much does an hour of your time earn you in your current job? That should give you a fair indication of what to charge… ? That way, you could ease into a schedule that earns you at least what you earn now and you can always adjust it later as the need and/or demand for your service arises.

  3. I think it is an awesome idea. I also agree that easing into it gradually is a good idea. In the current economic time it is not a good idea to be quitting a stable secure job. This is definitely something that could be done on the side to begin with.
