“I came to conference to discover how to start an organising business and have walked away with so much more.” The above comment came from an attendee of our 8th Annual AAPO Conference that was held on the Gold Coast this week and is pretty reflective of the invaluable content shared at Conference this year. This year’s Conference Team selected the theme, Waves of Change, to embody the spirit of Professional...

How To Keep Your Momentum to De-clutter and Get Organised

21st Jul 14
Any decision to change a part of our lives typically comes from a decision that we are unhappy with what is happening or how we are feeling. The challenge of course is moving from wanting to make a change and actually making the change occur. How often have we said, “Right, that’s it! I’ve had enough,” made some changes and within a short period of time we are back to our...

Are you having problems locating your paper work before seeing your tax agent each year? A super simple tip is to grab a manila file or plastic sleeve and write up a tick box list of the most common documents you need to make your tax return.

What Benefit is a Broker?

How to time manage: Cleaning your house

Nine ways to get it done! (if you have more, please share). We might be living in the 21st century and have equal rights for men and women, but more than 50% of households I know don’t have a paid cleaner. And I am sorry to say, it’s mostly the male partners in the equation that vote against that expense. For different reasons, but one still is going along these lines:”my...

Are you a Hoarder?

I have heard large numbers of people refer to themselves or a loved one as a hoarder - but what exactly is hoarding? Before we go any further, I would like to request that we don't judge or label people but recognise that we are talking about a person who may be struggling with a hoarding disorder - after all it is affecting their life more than we will ever know,...

Decluttering the chore of laundry

The biggest complaint I hear from mum clients is the endless chore of laundry. Nearly every house I walk into has baskets of laundry in various stages of the “dirty to drawer” process. I am sometimes amazed at the sheer volume that some families have. I do not have a magic wand to get the laundry done but I hope to help you to rethink about the amount of clothes in...

Mundella EveryWoman Expo: 13-15 June 2014

Perth AAPO Forum The Perth branch of AAPO is one of the largest in Australia, which isn’t bad for good old Western Australia. We may be the biggest state in size, but we have a much smaller population than some other states and therefore we are pretty proud of our group and its achievements. We are also passionate about spreading the word of AAPO and raising the awareness of the Professional...

What's in a Name?

So what’s in a name? I asked my fellow Organisers to offer their opinions on the title of “Professional Organiser”. Thank you to the 53 Organisers who completed the survey. Of these, 46 call themselves Professional Organisers, 1 Personal Organiser and 6...
