I recently went through the decluttering process at my house. We didn't use the Marie Kondo route, though: we hired a professional organizer. 

Yes, such people exist.

But what does it take to do this for a living? What is it like to take on this sort of career in a place like L.A.? 

So I wanted to bring on the person who helped me, Tori Springer Taylor who runs the business Simply Simplify.
