There seem to be two types of people – those whose lives are organised and orderly, and those whose lives are in permanent state of disarray. If you are part of the first group, there may be a business to be built by helping those in the second.
Professional organising is the perfect business for people with a flair for neatness and developing systems. Not all disorganisation is the same of course, so it’s probably a good idea to choose an area of specialisation, such as cleaning out garages, helping people plan for moving or downsizing, or assisting professional men and woman with their busy lives.
Professional organiser Debbie Lillard has written a book on the subject – Absolutely Organised, and wanted to work part time after years as a stay-at-home mother. She launched her business by contacting old friends who were stressed by the disorganisation in their lives and created business cards and flyers and distributed them in shops in affluent neighbourhoods.
That’s where the first customers came from, and word of mouth took over from there.

Hardly Chicken Feed
Just had an interesting conversation with our printer who has a friend who’s a chicken farmer. He supplies the big supermarkets, and I’ve often wondered how the farmers make any money given that you can often buy a chicken in Tesco and their competitors for just a few pounds.
Well it turns out margins on chickens are indeed tight, and the farmer makes most of his money from a surprising source – chicken manure. Apparently, chicken poo is a rich source of nitrogen and he’s able to sell both the solid manure and (sorry to be so graphic here) the liquid remnants that are left when the sheds are hosed down.
I’ve asked this question before, but it’s worth thinking about again. Is there some waste product associated with your business which could be sold at a profit? Most people would see chicken poo as something which needs to be disposed of, and there may be a waste product in your business which isn’t getting the attention it deserves.
Don’t think too literally here. For example, in our own business a ‘waste product’ might be enquiries who don’t ever buy from use. But perhaps they could be valuable to someone else. Think about what you have.

Dear Streetwise Customer,
Imagine sitting down this afternoon and tapping out a simple letter. It takes you perhaps a couple of hours to get it right…
And Then Over The Next Few Years It Brings In Over £5 Million.
Not at all. I’ve done it. I’ll even show you the letter. And I’ve written lots of others just like it, although they weren’t all quite as successful as that one.
But Even So, Many Of Them Landed Thousands Of Pounds In My Bank Account Within Days, and Hundreds of Thousands Within Weeks.
Like to learn how to do the same?
Well there has really Never Been A Better Time for three reasons…
1. These letters bring in serious money when times are tough – and they

internet for its requirements, just like it is right now.
3. You probably have some free time available to learn how to do this at the moment.
