Julie Morgenstern, founder and owner of the professional organizing firm Julie Morgenstern's Professional Organizers (formerly known as TASK MASTERS), helps people who want to get organized and companies who want to do more in less time. Since 1989, Julie and her staff have organized the cluttered homes, offices, and schedules of such clients as American Express, IKEA, The Miami Heat, NBC-Newsroom, NYC Mayor’s Office, Sony Music, Rubbermaid, Bell South, and Time Warner, Inc.
As a speaker, media expert, and corporate spokesperson, Julie is known for her engaging, articulate style and warm sense of humor. She is a columnist for “O”, The Oprah Magazine, solving reader’s problems by creating order in their life. Julie is a frequent guest on many TV and radio shows, including The Oprah Winfrey Show, The Today Show, Good Morning America, and National Public Radio. She is quoted and featured regularly in a wide variety of publications and has been seen in The New York Times, The Chicago Tribune, Woman’s Day, Health Magazine, Cosmopolitan, and Bottom Line Business.
Julie’s New York Times’ bestseller, ORGANIZING FROM THE INSIDE OUT (Henry Holt/Owl Books, 1998), focuses on overcoming the classic hurdles to getting organized, including the technical, external and psychological obstacles which hold you back. Her second bestseller, TIME MANAGEMENT FROM THE INSIDE OUT (Henry Holt/Owl Books, 2000), teaches you how to work with your unique relationship to time to live the life of your dreams. Julie collaborated with her teenage-daughter Jessi to co-author her latest book, ORGANIZING FROM THE INSIDE OUT FOR TEENS (Henry Holt/Owl Books, 2002).
ORGANIZING FROM THE INSIDE OUT has been made into a popular PBS Video Special. Her books are available in audio versions and have been translated into many different languages. Julie demystifies the process of getting organized by making it simple, do-able and fun.
The National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO) honored Julie with its prestigious Founder’s Award in 2002 for her significant contributions to the professional organizing industry. She has served actively on the Board of Directors for NAPO for many years and is also a member of The National Speakers Association (NSA).
Julie’s background in the theatre as a director, producer, and performer provides the foundation for her work as an Organizer. She believes organizing requires the same set of skills as directing/producing -- an appreciation of spatial design, the ability to see the big picture as well as the tiny details, and the talent to blend psychology and practical skills to guide people where they want to go.
Her education includes a BA in Theatre from Temple University and graduate studies in Directing at the Goodman School of Drama. Julie lives in New York City with her daughter Jessi.
