Welcome to The Declutter hub 

Let's spend some time working ON your business so you can prosper IN it

Are you a Professional Organiser ready to take your business forwards?

Does this sound like you?

  • Are you fairly new to business but sometimes feeling out of your depth with clients?
  • Do you love the organising but hate the admin? 
  • Are you wondering why all your best marketing activities are just not converting to clients? 
  • Is your business progressing well but you are wondering how to take those next steps?

We HAVE GOOD NEWS


We're Ingrid and Lesley, founders of The Declutter Hub, and we are excited you're here.

We live, eat and breathe decluttering. In our eyes, the less clutter there is in people's homes, the better. And around the world that's facilitated by people like us and you!

We love the Professional Organising community and have been fully immersed in it for over 13 years.

We have both run our one-to-one businesses, The Clutter Fairy in North West England and Organise your House in South East London. And we now have our fantastic teams helping us serve our clients on a day-to day basis.

Ingrid was the President of the Association of Professional Declutterers and Organisers (APDO) for 4 years and Lesley worked alongside her on the Board as Head of Mentoring and Head of Website Development.

We co-wrote the APDO Starting a Professional Organising Business Course and delivered it for over 3 years to hundreds of organisers. We are so proud that it's still going strong today. 

APDO is where we developed our friendship and a complementary approach to decluttering and organising. We enjoyed working and training together so much that we developed and launched The Declutter Hub to bring our emotions led approach to decluttering into the online world.

Fast forward 4 years and our online business goes from strength to strength. We host the Declutter Hub Podcast and have over a million downloads. Our membership has seen thousands of people through its doors and we have a highly engaged, inspirational facebook group with over 15,000 members.

Over the years we've learnt, made mistakes and grown. Then we've learnt, made mistakes and grown again. We have always maintained that a successful PO spends 50% of their time in the business and 50% on the business. And sometimes the balance is off.

We feel so privileged to be in this wonderful industry of people who want nothing more than the people they work with to live life happier and less stressed with a clutter free organised home. We're all in this together - one bin bag at a time!

So if you're looking for a helping hand to make your PO Business prosper, then you're in the right place.

This week I had the privilege of joining a Q&A call for the new Prosper programme run by Ingrid and Lesley. I cannot thank these ladies enough for the advice and support that they shared. Even for someone that has been running a business for a while now, they had so many ideas to help me grow. After only one session I feel like this has been one of the best things I have done for my business by far! Thank you so much, ladies!

What's included in the PO Prosper Programme?

The Prosper Programme is a 12 month programme and the bronze tier includes:

Access to all our courses - If you are a new organiser trying to find your feet in the industry it can be a baptism of fire going into clients' homes for the first time. Sometimes you just need a tried and tested method of how to tackle every area of your client's home and we have just that. We have an extensive library of courses for every room in a home that you can use as a learning or reference tool.

Invest in the silver tier to get access to our course library plus...

Monthly Q&As - we all love to organise, declutter and help our clients but running a business is another ballgame. We suddenly have to be a master at marketing, pricing, web design, PR and so much more. If we are stuck or struggling, getting the right information in a niche industry like ours can be tricky. That's where our monthly group Q&As come in. You can ask us anything about running a PO business and we'll do our best to answer!

Co-working sessions - Straight after each Q&A session we encourage you to stay online for a co-working session. Put in to practise what you have learnt in the Q&A session to ensure you are always making progress forwards, chat things through with a fellow organiser or buddy up for accountability.

Go for gold to access everything from bronze and silver plus...

Power Hour Calls If you want a more personal approach and would like to really delve into your business - to chat about what's working and what's not and develop a plan to move forward in the right direction, our one-to-one Power Hour Calls are perfect. Whether you want a website audit, advice about a project you are working on or to brainstorm a new idea, we'll be there for you.

Sarah Bickers, Free Your Space and Founder of ADHD For Organisers 

Lesley & Ingrid each have over a decade of experience as professional organisers. They both run successful businesses, initially as individual Organisers, and now managing teams and supervising those Organisers to grow and develop. They also co-host the Declutter Hub which supports people online all over the world to tackle their clutter and become more organised. 

Having worked with such a wide breadth of clients there is nothing that fazes them. Whether working with someone who is re-designing their home or someone with signs of hoarding disorder or ADHD, they know how to adapt their approach to support their client to achieve their goals. 

On the first APDO training team with them, for several years we ran APDO’s training day for hundreds of new and would-be organisers: 'Starting A Professional Organising Business’. I can vouch that they make training fun and accessible, with a straightforward 'can do’ approach which encourages Organisers to address procrastination and get on with the business of running their Professional Organising business. 

They know their stuff and they help Organisers at the point they’re at. Personally, they have helped me recognise where I was ‘stuck’ and to recognise my own unique skills and perspective. They’ve encouraged me to stretch myself and to grow my own business - and I still benefit from their gentle but firm challenges!

Lesley & Ingrid have a wealth of experience and perspective to offer. Whether you’re just thinking about becoming a Professional Organiser, have just started running your business, or want to stretch yourself and your business further, they have a wealth of knowledge and experience to support you.

Francesca Harrison

Thank you for a great Q&A earlier this week! It was really helpful and gave me a great boost. I’ve been working today on my SEO, sent links to clients asking (very nicely of course) for Google reviews, and am looking into opening a business bank account. All in all, today I’ve felt like I’m on fire and I think that’s largely thanks to our session this week!

DON't let excuses stand in your Way

Let go of those BUTs!

BUT I want to do client work not business stuff 


It's not uncommon to feel as if you are the only PO that struggles with the business side of things. But if you want to follow your vocation and do more client work, you have to make a profit and to make a profit you need to discover what is going to turn the dial on your business. 

BUT I WANT TO WORK LESS NOT MORE


Isn't that the dream? And it can be a reality but don't you want to nurture and build the business you are so passionate about? If you build your team around you, you can do less work but still reap the rewards long term. But it takes planning, thinking and action to get to a point where you are ready to hand over your 'baby' to someone else.

BUT I'M NOT THAT TECHNICAL


Outsource the things you loathe and focus on those things in the business that need you. You can ask someone to write your website and social media copy but it needs to be you and your voice that sits behind the messaging. The tough bit is working out the message and creating that authentic voice.

BUT i DON"T HAVE MONEY TO INVEST


It's tough to balance working as many hours as you can to bring in an income. But seeking help and advice from people who have a proven track record of success is a sensible way to grow and flourish. You need to make sure you have a business and not just a job. To facilitate that you will need help. Investing at the right time in the right place can be game changing. 

Juliet Landau-Pope, JLP Coach and Founder of Academy of Virtual Organising

Ingrid and Lesley are gifted organisers, coaches and teachers. Always honest and empathetic, they cut to the core of exactly what you need to know to succeed. Highly recommended!
