I am very pleased with the outcome of the certified organizer training program. The program had just the right amount of content to create my business. It wasn't overwhelming and I went step-by-step. I appreciate Anne's guidance throughout the program. She was very receptive and listened, but also provided feedback when I needed it. I feel confident going forward with my new business venture.

My experience with this certified organizer training course was excellent! The instruction provided is very thorough and informative. Anne was very supportive during the training answering all questions I had. I would definitely recommend IPO to any organizer who is getting started or who wants to learn more.

The time, effort, professionalism, and (at least) 17 years’ worth of Anne’s organizing experience that is contained within such a meticulous and thoughtfully produced certified organizer training course, is worth so much more than $1,000!
Finding such a course, designed to walk you through such an immense process step-by-step, like a coach leading you to the next exercise, was (and is!) so reassuring!
There are so many practical tools, examples, and references contained in the course that are so helpful as well as access to Anne herself who’s willing to be an understanding guide and mentor.
I appreciated having the accountability this certified organizer training course offered to help “light a fire” under me and begin the process of thinking and putting thoughts down regarding my business.
Overall, just a quality-made instructional course.

This certified organizer training program exceeded my expectations. I learned so much about starting a business and starting a career as a professional organizer.
Anne has been an incredible resource and it means a lot to have her as a mentor for the next year. The 5 Steps to Organizing® process is very helpful and will be a great reference for me working with future clients.
Anne is very supportive and you can tell she genuinely cares about her students' success.
