For some, maintaining an organized home is as natural as walking. For others, it's a daily struggle. If you fit into the former category, you may be able to help the latter group.
Inspired by myriad TV shows featuring professional organizers, Nettie Owens and her husband realized that their ability to de-clutter and organize made for a potentially lucrative business.
"I read books, did research online and found that there were other organizers already in my area, so I decided to try it," she says. Owens set up a booth at a local home and garden show in 2004 and has slowly grown her business, Sappari Solutions, LLC. She was even featured on TLC's hit TV show, "Hoarding: Buried Alive."
Owens' at-home business now provides various services, including small business organizing, virtual organizing, cleaning, speaking and instruction.
