I know a thing or two about decluttering and downsizing and I can tell you that pictures are the item that holds back my clients the most. I’ve been saying for years that there is a huge business in helping people sort through their pictures and digital memories. Well, there is, and the two people I turn to for help have written the perfect book to help you start a business doing it. Cathi Nelson & Jill Yesko are two of the most driven and giving entrepreneurs out there and they’ve given you a roadmap of how to do it successfully, ethically, and profitably. They say that this industry is a Blue Ocean and I’m glad they are the captains of our ship.
