Virtual Home Organizing vs. Coaching Services (& their many benefits)
Many assume organizing is a talent that we are just born with.
That is not true.
Like all skills, from brushing our teeth to driving a car, organizing is a skill that we learn somewhere along the way.
If organizing, for you, has been challenging, that's okay.
Organizing is a skill that can be developed and refined over time with practice. Not everyone is taught how to organize, but with the help of the internet, you can easily find a professional organizer to help you.
Having a professional guide you through the process can save you time from organizing every day to spend more time doing what you want.
Now, I believe organization is an essential service.
I also believe organizational services don't have to stop when the world is at a pause.
With virtual organizing and coaching services, you can get organized safely from anywhere and anytime. But what is the difference between the two?
What Is Virtual Home Organizing?
Virtual organizing is organization done with the help of the technology at your fingertips. With a certified virtual professional organizer, organize the space of your choice to best fit your needs and lifestyle.
Virtual organization is perfect for those who want help and accountability at a distance with the same support, care, and expertise as in-person organization services, with even greater flexibility.
The practice of Virtual Organizing also can't be any greener — all done from the comfort and safety of our homes without the commute.
Benefits of Virtual Organization
While in-person services require blocking half days, virtual organization offers one-hour increments to fit into any part of your day.
Work together to keep you on track on your organization goals
Stuck? Overwhelmed? Reach out through email or text for any additional questions between sessions.
Virtual organizing is more affordable than in-person organizing. The quality of help and support is the same but made much more affordable because there is no need for commuting or an on-site minimum.
You Control the Room (Literally)
You get the satisfaction of putting your room in order with a little guidance
Work Together Anywhere
It is hard to find a professional organizer that you click with. Now you can work with your favorite organizer no matter how far they are.

Health issues that prohibit them from lifting and moving things in their home
Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD, Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), or any other Chronic medical condition
What is Coaching?
While virtual organization and coaching are both done online, they are quite different.
Coaching is less about organizing physical clutter in the home and more about organizing mental clutter.
During coaching sessions, we work together to help you organize your ideas, thoughts, and struggles to create a plan and clear path towards your goals — big or small.
Benefits of Coaching
Build a Strong Foundation and Routine For Your Day to Day
Clarify your goals and break them down into actionable steps you can take every day to get closer to achieving them
Accountability and Support to Keep You Going
Frequent check-ins along with text and email support as needed
Help With Decision Making, Clutter Issues, and Paper
Understand and work through decisions together to make life easier
Learn Your Cognitive Style
Take advantage and apply your cognitive style to work to the best of YOUR abilities
SHiFT™ Your Thoughts
Use the SHIFT approach to create "breathing space” to practice the skills of making space in your home and mind
"Hi Jen, I felt really good [today]! It was like you took the bones of what I had and gave it muscles and skin if that made sense. Because I kept putting the bones in the wrong place. I’m actually excited to keep working on it. Which is a first for me!”

Coaching Services are perfect for those who want:
A calm and safe environment to get a handle on their “AD/HD” energy (even if they’re not AD/HD)
Professional support when overwhelmed or stuck
Work through mental clutter and gain control of their life
Establish a positive and productive daily schedule
To challenge and improve themselves all while recognizing their strengths
A supportive coach that pushes you and cares about your progress and achievements

Want their home organized for them (see in-person services or VO)
Aren’t ready to dive deep into their thoughts and learn more about themselves
Want instant results
Before you go...
With virtual organizing, your progress can feel slow and maybe even frustrating. I understand that as our sessions are one hour and usually one to two times a week. Think of it this way — getting disorganized didn't happen overnight, and getting organized won't happen overnight either.
Whether it through coaching or virtual organizing services, it takes time for change to happen. It's about progress — to form new healthy habits and systems for organizing, which takes time. Real change takes patience and practice, practice, practice, for life.
