President’s Message

 This month's chapter meeting will be about the art of subcontracting. We will be hearing from one of our very own, Rachel Winter, with Happy Home Organizers. I am looking forward to hearing the heartfelt gems Rachel has to offer us.

Rachel is just one organizer that I have subcontracted for in the last two years. I have worked under many organizers and have worked in many different niches. I had fully intended to jump right into the organizing world two years ago. I started my own business, I set up all my social media platforms, I even ordered shirts. And then COVID hit. The only thing that got me through these tough years has been subcontracting. I went into subcontracting to learn the business, work with other great organizers and do what I love every day. Learning to work with clients and sharing my gift with them has been an extra bonus for me.

I encourage any newer organizer or anyone that would like to work with a team to consider joining NAPO-AZ and working as a subcontractor. We have come together to get through a very difficult time. Even in this time we are still able to make a difference in each others' lives and in our clients lives'.

Your NAPO-AZ President,
Sarah Nieto
