Disadvantages

  • Since this is a new field, many people still don’t know what an organizer is. Some confuse it with union organizer or community organizer. So you often must educate before you can sell.
  • Some clients are not very well organized (that’s why they need you), so sometimes you’re working with people who reschedule a lot, can’t find their checkbook, forget their appointments, and so forth.
  • This work demands a lot of time and energy to get underway, and it may take considerable time before you’ll be able to make a full-time income.
  • You won’t have much repeat business unless you have clients who hire you on a retainer or you are an on-site consultant to a larger company, so you will have to continually look for new clients.
