What do I need to know about Virtual Organizing?
It is a way for an experienced, caring organizer on the other side of the world to help you regain time, space, and peace of mind using your computer, tablet, or phone.
Mona Brantley is a professional organizer who worked for over five years as an organizer providing real solutions to her clients’ challenges. Recently, Mona has rejoined the organizing world as a Certified Virtual Organizer based in Johannesburg, South Africa.
Her virtual clients are clients who are motivated and ready for a change. They are comfortable using basic technology, nothing fancy required! They must be physically able to do the hands-on parts themselves or have someone they can rely on for the physical part.
Because virtual organizing is usually done in shorter sessions of one hour to two hours, it is easier to schedule around your need. Ideally, we would meet two to three times a week, but that will be decided as part of your individual plan.
Virtual Organizing is perfectly suited for reducing your challenges into smaller projects. We can work on specific areas in your home (closets, kitchens, playrooms and much more) or specific areas in your office (paperwork, effective desktop, and strategies for productivity). We can even work on time management or any other part of your life that creates challenges.
- During the covid-19 scare, you can still work with a professional organizer without having to worry about risk of exposure or masks.
- You get to work with an experienced and trained professional organizer who is on the other side of the world!
- Virtual sessions are shorter than hands-on so you can schedule the meetings and follow-up as it suits your life.
- Your privacy is highly valued. You only show us what you are comfortable with and what you want to show us through the screen of your device.
- You will be held accountable for follow up work and meetings
How do we get started?
We schedule a zoom meeting to discuss virtual organizing and your goals. If we agree that virtual organizing is a good fit for you, we schedule a one-hour Zoom session to start work.
After our first Zoom session, we will tweak any issues and schedule more sessions at your convenience.
We work until the first project is accomplished. We celebrate your success and then move on to another project if you are ready. The number of sessions per project depends on the scope of the project and the work you do between sessions.
