Start a Career Organizing Homes
A Day In the Life of A Liberator
No two days are the same. This is not a traditional job with banker’s hours. This is a career. This is a calling. We work as a team with a variety of clients in a variety of home and office settings. However, we are very clear about what types of clients we desire to work with and what types of clients we refer out to other professional organizers. We do not work with hoarders or extremely dirty homes. We are not a maid service, so if cleaning is your true passion you are on the wrong website.
Many of our clients are super organized and have lost control of their homes after a life transition, such as, new baby, divorce, death in the family, relocation or job change. Some of our clients have always dreamed of being organized, but no one taught them how to organize. Our clients are so thankful when they finally find us to help them organize their homes.
Definition of Professional Organizer
According to the National Association of Professional Organizers:
“A professional organizer enhances the lives of clients by designing systems and processes using organizing principles and by transferring organizational skills. Professional organizers help individuals and businesses take control of their surroundings, their time, their paper, and their systems for life.”
Professional Organizing Services Include
Professional organizers throughout the industry provide many services including, but not limited to:
Earning Potential: What You Can Expect
Industry Statistics quote gross earnings not net. It is important to note that net earnings is far more important number by which to determine actual disposable income. To calculate net earnings, deduct annual insurance, marketing costs, etc. from the gross earning to arrive at net earnings. Below are some links to reference articles on the salary of a Professional Organizer.

- Closed Labs – What do Professional Organizers Earn
Part-time and full-time positions available. Some weekends and evenings will be required. This career is perfect for people who were born to organize, non-judgmental, fun and have a heart to serve others. This career is perfect for an individual that does not have to bring in a bread winners salary. This career is perfect for an individual that does not need highly structured days with a boss, but instead needs highly flexible hours and autonomy.
We pay $15/hour – $30/hour based on experience level plus commissions and some benefits. Hours are not guaranteed. In cities where Major Organizers is just getting established it could take up to three years to earn a good income.
The scale below shows what is possible for a Major Organizers Liberator to earn in a team environment versus working solo:
- Year 1: $5,000 – $12,000
- Year 2: $8,000 – $22,000
- Year 3: $10,000 – $30,000
- Year 4: $12,000 – $35,000
- Year 5: $12,000 – $45,000
- Year 6: $24,000 – $50,000
- Year 7: $24,000 – $55,000
This scale reflects all three career tracks: Assistant Organizer, Professional Organizer and Certified Professional Organizer. The amount of hours you can work directly affects the amount of money you will be able to make on our teams. We have many Assistant Organizers that work 10-15 hours per week. They make enough money to help with the bills or extras. We also have Professional Organizers and Certified Professional Organizers that work 40 hours a week and earn enough to support themselves and contribute to the overall family budget. The organizers that earn the most with us dedicate 40 hours per week to their professional roles and responsibilities in addition to hands-on organizing hours with clients. Some of these responsibilities include, but are not limited to, professional development (i.e. team meetings, sales seminar), personal development, business building, travel, sales activities (estimates and phone calls), preparation for work, coordinating and assembling a team job and client follow up.
How much time do you really have to organize clients? There are 365 days in a year, but after you subtract all the holidays, 30-60 vacation days, and health & wellness days, you only have about 205 working days left. We teach our team how to maximize the actual working days and enjoy all the time off you are afforded as a Liberator.
