  1. This is a great resource! However, I do have two additions to add:

    Under the category or Becoming A Professional Organizer, I highly recommend “The Ultimate Guide for Professional Organizers” by Maria Gracia, copyright 2009. This covers everything you need to know to start, manage and grown your professional organizing business. – Not to mention, that one of my case studies appears on page 281.

    Under the category of Residential Organizing, I also recommend “The Parents Guide to Uncluttering Your Home” by Janet Morris Grimes. I appear on Page 177.

    I am very proud to have been asked to participate in writing for these two books and the quality of the books themselves.

  2. Thanks for the extensive list! I also love reading and have been reading a book about being an organizer, a small business owner, or a professional speaker every week for over 2 years. It is always great to discover new titles! I will be checking my library for new ones from your list.
    I would like to recommend the following which I have used when hosting a book club discussion:
