    The Online Hoarding Meeting offers an opportunity for professionals — from therapists and social workers to firefighters and other public safety officials — to learn how to most effectively and compassionately work with individuals with HD. Professionals will hear from leading researchers and experts in the field, and will walk away with new understanding and practical strategies for working with those affected by HD.

    The Online Hoarding Meeting also provides critical information to individuals, families, and loved ones affected by hoarding disorder (HD), with the goal of improving access to effective and compassionate treatment and care.

    Please note: All registrants will have access to all sessions. The CE Sessions are intended for professionals who work with Hoarding Disorder, but everyone can participate.

    All presentations will take place in a live stream via Zoom. Registrants will receive the URL link to access the Zoom room on the day before the event.

    Pricing in a Pandemic

    John Ray, Ray Business Advisors


    In a pandemic-induced economic downturn full of uncertainty, how you handle your pricing can literally make or break your business. Even without today's rocky business conditions, most Professional Organizers agree that one of the biggest pain points in their business is pricing: not receiving an adequate price for the value delivered.


    This presentation will cover:

    • Why pricing is the most important profit driver of your business
    • Why getting your pricing right is more important now than ever
    • Why cutting prices is likely to more destroy your business, not save it
    • Why the fundamental of how customers view your services have not changed

    Table Topics, post-presentation

    • What is my biggest pricing problem?
    • What are the one or two concepts I can take away from this presentation to immediately improve my profitability?

    Because pricing is the fastest way to change the profitability of a business, John advises business owners on how to change their pricing and make more money. His clients include attorneys, CPAs, consultants, technology companies and retail store owners. His blog, "Pricing for Profit," regularly features examples and stories which help business owners in their own pricing journey. John is also a speaker on pricing at numerous chambers, business events and seminars.


    As President of Ray Business Advisors, John also helps small to mid-sized companies achieve their profit and growth goals as an outside CFO. He owns the North Fulton studio of BusinessRadioX and hosts "North Fulton Business Radio," where he interviews the area's top business and community leaders. John's studio helps business owners by planning, producing and promoting their radio show/podcast.
