Meet Dina Newman of Organizing Concepts and Designs

Today we’d like to introduce you to Dina Newman.

So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
Although not diagnosed until later in life with OCD, I was EXTREMELY organized as a child. I would rather organize my drawers than play with toys.

Fast-forward to my early 20’s. I found myself working in a law firm and just loved it. I wound up working in the legal industry for 29 years. I started as a legal assistant, then a paralegal and worked my way up to managing a law firm for many of those years.

As you can imagine, there are many deadlines each and every day in the legal world so you have to be uber organized to thrive in that environment. You also have to have great leadership and communication skills to manage others in what can be an intense world.

I decided to start my own business in June of 2010, as I no longer wanted to work for others. I used my natural born skills in conjunction with my years of experience in the legal industry and started Organizing Concepts and Designs, a Professional Organizing Service.

Organizing Concepts and Designs specializes in residential organizing, office organizing, relocations, estate sales and clear outs. I now have 10 people that work with me in my business.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
For the most part it has been smooth sailing.

Organizing Concepts and Designs – what should we know? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
What I am most proud of is our continuous growth. We started just doing residential and office organizing and have added so many invaluable services over the years.

What sets us apart from others is that most other Professional Organizers are sole proprietors and don’t offer the many services that we do.

We take pride in the value of our services and the quality of our services.

Further, over the years, I have created and manufactured organizing products which are now on the market and sold on Amazon.

What is “success” or “successful” for you?
I think success is loving what you do and doing it well.

I think that my company is successful as we’ve been around for many years and have an amazing reputation in the community. We have 5 star ratings on every social media platform including, but not limited to, Thumbtack, Angie’s List, GoogleMyBusiness, Yelp, etc.

Our clients have been with us for years and are our biggest source of referrals. I think that speaks volumes.

Pricing:

  • I charge $90 per hour for my services
  • The charge is $70 per hour for my assistants
  • We offer a 10% discount with a purchase of 12 hours.
  • We have a 4 hour minimum
