Attention Small Business Owners, Service Professionals, Practitioners and Entrepreneurs:


Are You Tired of Losing Opportunities to Serve Your Clients and Make More Money in Your Business Because You’re Scattered, Frustrated, Overwhelmed and Disorganized?


I’ll Show You Simple, Proven Strategies to Cut Clutter, Reduce Stress,
and Boost Your Productivity – and Your Profits – Easily!


From the desk of Joshua Zerkel, CPO®

Dear Fellow Business Professional,

Scattered. Frustrated. Powerless. Chaotic. Buried. Overwhelmed.

Joshua Zerkel, CPOSound familiar? Is being disorganized affecting your bottom line? Are you adrift on a sea of clutter on your desk, in your files and with your schedule?

You’re not alone. In a recent survey by the National Association of Professional Organizers, 91 percent of the respondents said they would be more effective and efficient if their workspace was better organized. 28 percent said they would save over an hour per day and 27 percent said they would save 31 to 60 minutes each day.

I know how hard it can be to try and run a business when you’re feeling buried under clutter, especially when you – and your business – are suffering because of it. You’re not alone – I’ve seen it time and again in my work with clients – disorganization can be tough to overcome on your own.

That’s why I created the Profitable Productivity System! This program is designed to teach service professionals and entrepreneurs like you easy, proven strategies to put you back in command of your office – finally!

But before I share with you the details of the Profitable Productivity System, I’d like to share my story with you. When I started my company, Custom Living Solutions, in 2003, things seemed so simple. I had a client here, another there, and things were easy to manage – there just wasn’t that much to do! But as time went on and I became increasingly busy, the tasks seemed to start coming at me in a never-ending stream – and I had to manage them all on my own. Everything from dealing with my paperwork, to organizing my space, managing my schedule, tasks and everything in between now fell on my shoulders. In my work with clients, I saw how dire situations can get if you don’t figure out how to manage these elements in your business – whether it’s just flat-out stress, overwhelm, or lost revenue, it all counts. Just like my clients, I needed to learn how to deal with all the pieces in my business – but how?

Even though I’m a Certified Professional Organizer, that doesn’t mean I can wave the magic organizing wand and make everything I need to do just disappear! I had to come up with strategies for getting a handle on all the things on my plate. Through years of exploring, adapting, creating and implementing different organizing and productivity systems, strategies and tools, I’ve learned one essential fact: you need to have a systematic approach if you hope to not only get, but stay organized and productive in your business. Over time, I developed a system that I’ve used not only in my own business, but also with my clients in their businesses as well.

The system I’ve created is called the Profitable Productivity System, and it’s filled with time tested, easy-to-implement strategies to get you back in the driver’s seat of your business!

Aileen ThomasA few months ago, I downsized my office in a move. After that, some of my organizational systems no longer worked, and I began wasting a lot of time looking for things that should have been at my fingertips, and in some cases I couldn’t find things I needed at all.

Josh’s Profitable Productivity System was an outstanding tool for restructuring my organizational systems to fit my new space. The system is methodical, easy to follow, and rich with substance. While the overall system itself is extremely useful and smart, embedded into each module are many simple and clever tips I was able to implement instantly. There’s no guesswork – Josh provides the roadmap and guides you step by step so you don’t miss a thing. In addition, while I had resolved to do the system because I knew I had to, very quickly into module 1, I became extremely motivated to undertake this project instead of looking at it as a chore.

I highly recommend the Profitable Productivity System to anyone whose productivity is suffering for lack of some simple organizational solutions that can be implemented very quickly.

Why is it So Hard to Get Organized and be Productive in My Business?

I’ll bet at some point along the way you probably have tried to get organized on your own. Maybe you bought a couple of trays for your paper, hoping that would finally get your paper disarray under control. Or possibly you purchased a fancy day planner expecting that it would help you manage your dizzying array of tasks. But in the end, none of these things worked. Why?

After years of working with clients who have struggled in the past with varying levels and types of disorganization and lost productivity, I’ve seen these patterns – and common mistakes – time and time again.

The Top 3 Mistakes Small Business Owners, Entrepreneurs, Consultants
and Service Providers Make When Trying to Get Organized

Mistake #1: Shopping = Organizing
“If I just buy the right containers, I’ll get organized.”

On your own, you may be tempted to simply “buy yourself organized” by taking trips to an organizing supply store and buying lots of organizing tools and gizmos that the salesperson might recommend. Without them really knowing your situation or seeing your space, I’ve seen many people waste a lot of money by buying organizing supplies they don’t need. They end up bringing the organizing supplies back to their home or office where the organizing “tools” simply add to the existing clutter.

Mistake #2: Taking on Too Large a Project
“I’m going to organize my home office this weekend.”

When you try to get organized on your own, it’s tempting to want to “just get it done” by trying to do a project in one fell swoop, and usually in a compressed amount of time. Just imagine – you’ve decided to organize your office in one weekend, and by halfway through Saturday, everything is a mess, you’re frustrated and tired. You don’t really feel like spending any more of your weekend on organizing your office, and so you just give up. The project is actually in a worse state than when you started, and now you are left to deal with even more disorganization than before!

Mistake #3: Working Without a Plan
“I’ll figure out how to organize my office once I get started.”

Here’s how it happens: You decide to get your office organized, so you give yourself a day or a weekend to do it. You go into your office on Saturday, and you’re not sure where to begin, so you start by going through the piles that are on your desk. After an hour or two, you start getting bored and things are looking a bit messier than before, so you decide to take a break and check your email. Before you know it, an hour goes by and your office is in worse shape than when you started. It’s lunchtime, so you go out and grab a bite to eat – you’ll work on the office when you get back. By the time you return, you decide you’d rather do something else with your weekend besides get organized, and you give up.

Sound familiar? This scenario is pretty typical when you try to get organized without a plan in place. Without a plan, how will you know how to attack the various projects in order to get from point A to point Organized?

So How Do I NOT Make These Mistakes?

If there’s one thing I’ve learned in helping hundreds of clients, it’s that getting organized is essential to boosting your productivity and your profits. But before you can launch the organizational voyage, you have to have a systematic approach to getting organized. You can’t just go to the store and buy products and hope they will help you get organized. You can’t organize your office once and for all in one weekend. And you definitely can’t make your business more productive and more profitable without a plan for how you’re going to do it!

Instead, you need a step-by-step system to help walk you through the process of getting organized. An effective system addresses all the key areas of getting your small business to a higher level of productivity, including managing your space, paper, time, tasks and technology. An effective system also helps plan your approach each of these areas AND how to maintain your systems over time. After years of helping clients figure out how to deal with all these pieces, I’ve created the Profitable Productivity System to address each of these areas so YOU can get control of these elements too!

The benefits of Josh’s work are not just that I now have a logical and simple organizing system for my computer files, emails and paper. Nor it is that I am becoming more productive. It’s the gain in my own self-respect for taking action on an old bug-bear.

The 7 Elements of the Profitable Productivity System

The Profitable Productivity System was specifically designed to address the shortcomings of many other small office/home office organizing systems. In my experience, and with the systems I’ve seen clients try to implement in the past, other systems are not comprehensive, are too complicated to use and maintain, or both. Every office, no matter the size, has seven key areas that MUST be addressed in order to get organized and be productive.

The Profitable Productivity System


The seven key elements covered in the Profitable Productivity System include:

  • Planning – how to approach your organizing and productivity projects and create a plan of action to help you move forward in a systematic manner
  • Pruning & Editing – effective strategies for weeding and editing through your paper, information and belongings to make sure you’re keeping the essentials and not the clutter
  • Space – setting up your office, desk and storage areas to maximum use of space
  • Paper – comprehensive solutions for dealing with paper from the minute it comes in your door to final disposal
  • Technology – dealing with the files on your computer, managing your email and keeping your data safe
  • Time – creating productive days by managing your tasks, your to-do list and your schedule using the “123D” system
  • Maintenance – tweaking, fine tuning and keeping your systems in tip-top shape so they continue to serve you well into the future

Most organizing systems address a few of these areas, but not all, and that’s where they tend to fall short. If you’re trying to get organized, you need to address every one of these topics so you can get all the areas of your business under control!

I have always considered myself a fairly organized person, but I was plagued with the constant state of losing bills, forgetting where I filed something or not having a place to put the paper to begin with. Josh’s solutions were simple, yet effective for me—without having to spend a lot of money. Now, I happily sit at my desk, open the file drawers and can find anything at a moment’s notice. For the first time, I am not distracted by the post-it notes falling off my computer or small pieces of paper that always seem to live on my desk (or on any surface that is in my home)! The best part is the new desktop file box where all those stray papers can go until they find their final resting place. Joshua Zerkel is a master of organization, with lots of great suggestions on how to live in an organized way without going crazy.

  • It’s simple. There’s no jargon, complex workflow diagrams, if/then schemes, or other mental hoops to jump through. My philosophy is that the simpler a system is the better. Simple systems are easier to implement, use and maintain over time – and that’s why all of the strategies in the Profitable Productivity System are straightforward and as easy as possible to follow and implement.
