I’m Joshua Zerkel, Productivity Strategist, a Certified Professional Organizer® and the CEO and founder of Custom Living Solutions, the San Francisco Bay Area’s premier productivity and organizing consulting firm. I was also the 2008-2010 President of the San Francisco Bay Area Chapter of the National Association of Professional Organizers. I am dedicated to helping you create the organized, productive, and profitable business and life you envision.Joshua Zerkel

I’ve been featured in various media, including CBS News, ABC News, the San Francisco Chronicle and Examiner, Organize Magazine, Online Organizing, and many others, am a regular columnist on the Franklin Covey website, am a part of the Neat Fleet from the Neat Company, am one of Extra Space Storage’s featured organizers, and am the world’s first Evernote Ambassador on Productivity. I’m also a popular organizing instructor in the business community, speaking to small and large companies about the different techniques they can use to optimize efficiency and productivity in their work environment so they can serve more clients and make more money.

I don’t consider myself freakishly organized, but I will admit to spending some of my free time alphabetizing my comic books.
