Episode 53: It’s Never Too Late

In episode 53 of the NAPO Standout Podcast, we are joined by June Carter, CPO and NAPO Member since 2013! June is an entrepreneur, professional organizer, and home stager. She is also the founder of Corporate Interior Solutions and Get Your Stuff Together Solutions. June operates on the belief that it’s never too late to transition into the career of your dreams in organizing and productivity, home staging, or any other subset of organizing.

June speaks from personal experience, telling us about how a crisis in the New York office furniture interior design business forced her to make a complete career switch. She moved to Florida, where she discovered home staging and then had the epiphany that this new path gelled surprisingly well with professional organizing. She delves into how educating herself and drawing on governmental training facilities helped her handle the different steps along the way of this sudden change in career. June also shares how a decision to stop working so hard led her to become a time management professional and how the resources provided by NAPO played a fundamental role in her transition.

Tune into this episode for tips and tricks on how to transition into organizing and productivity and the possibility of making these changes well into your 50s, 60s and further!
