Celebrating Milestones and Achievements for Professional-Organizer.com
Celebrations are important ways to mark milestones. It’s important to not only celebrate personal milestones like family celebrations. Business success milestones share how far a business has come as well as high points and achievements. Milestones for business acknowledge core values and successes. It is a thrill to share with you dear blog readers who have followed my path steadily over the years.
I am celebrating my 20th year in business and my 20th year in the National Association of Productivity and Organizing Professionals (NAPO). To mark this occasion, I just received designation as a 20 year Golden Circle member. NAPO celebrates the 5, 10, 15, 20 and more years in our industry with a special badge. Professional-Organizer.com and myself as the business owner celebrate the values of consistency, tenacity, communication and dedication with this recognition.
NAPO Specialist Certificates
Education is a powerful part of my background, my life and my values. I am excited to share that I hold all 5 of NAPO’s specialist certificates. NAPO Specialist Certificates are for NAPO members who are seeking to set themselves apart in one or more specialties. For me it is a way enhance my work with my clients.
With the classes in the Household Management certificate, I am helping my clients build structure, processes and routines for their families.
Using the Residential Organizing Certificate, I am helping my clients with paper management, decluttering and space arranging in the residential setting.
With the Team Productivity Certificate, I am assisting clients who work in teams in both their homes and offices by boosting both their organizing and productivity.
The Workplace Productivity Certificate provides me information to help clients build a solid foundation with productivity in their homes and workplaces.
Life Transitions are a part of all of our lives. I am helping clients navigate the challenges of major life transitions, either at home or work.
Professional organizers can be certified through the Board of Certification of Professional Organizers (BCPO). I am an inaugural Certified Professional Organizer, holding certification since 2007. Since then, I have taken hundreds of hours of classes to maintain my certification. These classes include client interaction classes and specialty certificate classes. Certification also includes adhering to our BCPO Code of Ethics.
What does this all mean to you as my blog reader and for clients? In all my work, my goal is to provide the expertise that helps you achieve your goals. Through expert, current and in-depth training, our work together is enriched. Each of these certificates adds value to our work together as we determine systems and routines that work with your personal style and strengths.
