Save be mindful that all of your account’s packages will be transferred to the organization.
That's it you have now converted your account into an organization, the next screen you will see is the organization screen.
Now as previously prompted log out and back into your account. You will be presented with the following home page just like when you first open your account. Do not be alarmed, not all is lost it's just that all your data/packages have been transferred to your new organization.
