Professional Organizer (aka Certified LiberatorTM)

Earning Potential

$20/hour – $175/hour based on what region you live in and how good you actually become at serving others while in their homes. You are more valuable to a company hiring professional organizers if you have invested in training yourself.


Many organizers start part-time (15-20 hours/week) and then go full-time (30-40 hours/week ). Some clients are professionals that work Monday-Friday which means you may have to work some evenings or weekends. You create and manage your own schedule. This career is perfect for people who do not have the pressure of being the breadwinner, but do need to bring in income to increase the quality of life for their families. You can switch between part-time and full-time as needed. We have designed three career tracks to allow you to weave your career in to your life without sacrificing your family or personal goals.

Target Market

We do not train you how to become a maid service and we do not train you to work with Level 4 and 5 Hoarders (see Hoarding Scale as published by the Institute for Challenging Disorganization).

You will be able to organize any room or space in a residential home, including home offices. You will treat each client as an individual with unique needs, values and goals. You will have the opportunity to be an employee for a company near you or an independent contractor. We select the Distinguished Grads only to be listed on our site.
