    The Move In Experience

    * Please note this is a Virtual Chapter Meeting - we will NOT be meeting in person this month *

    Join Gayle Goddard, CPO to learn more about  all aspects of moving a client into a home. Gayle is a Certified Professional Organizer and NAPO member residing in Houston Texas. 


    About the Presenter


    Gayle Goddard, CPO doesn’t possess magical powers for making order out of chaos—just a natural sense of organization, a lot of empathy, and a keen insight into the relationships between people and their “stuff.”

    She has spent more than 20 years organizing financial data as a CPA before turning her skill and passion for conquering clutter into a professional organizing business.

    As owner of The Clutter Fairy, she offers organizing services and ongoing support to help clients conquer clutter and focus on what they really want to be doing. She is also an enthusiastic public speaker and coordinates the Houston Clutter Coaching Meetup, a support group that meets monthly.

    Zoom Only Meeting

    We will be running this month's meeting virtually via Zoom.  Members: keep an eye on your email inbox for the Zoom invitation which will be sent no later than Tuesday, 5/18/21. 

    Meeting Cost

    Round Table Discussion... Be A Pro... "Talk Less, Smile More"

    * Please note this is a Virtual Chapter Meeting - we will NOT be meeting in person this month *

    Round Table Discussion...Be A Pro..."Talk Less Smile More"

    In the popular musical Hamilton, the chatty Alexander Hamilton was given advice from Aaron Burr, "Talk less, smile more. Don't let them know what you're against or what you're for..." (Written by Lin-Manuel Miranda)

    How can we as professional organizers take this same advice? What we share with our clients can reveal things about ourselves that may come off as less professional. Whether you work on your own, are working on a team, or run a team, having a tamed tongue can take your professionalism up a notch. Hear from a panel of NAPO Michigan members on how they handle their conversations on the phone and on the job, and what they expect if they hire you on their team.

    Whether you organize underwear drawers or help a client's employee understand ways to be more productive, being more aware of what you say, makes a difference. 

    About the Panel

    Mindy is a certified professional organizer in chronic disorganization through the Institute for Challenging Disorganization with Specialist Certificates in ADHD, Chronic Disorganization, and Hoarding along with six Level I Certificates of Study. She is a 2014 graduate of the Core Essentials Program, Coach U and an active member of the National Association of Productivity and Organizing Professionals with Specialist Certificates in Residential Organizing, Workplace Productivity, and Life Transitions. Mindy has been a speaker and panelist on topics about organizing and helping adults with ADHD.

    Mindy’s clients say she helps them move projects forward, create efficient systems and process, and makes space for what matters.
