  • Making less money than you need to live a fulfilling life and support your family the way you really want to
  • Wasting so much time looking for things every day when you could be taking on more paying work
  • Missing out on great opportunities because business cards, important papers, and reminders slip through the cracks
  • Sick of looking at a messy desk (or office) every morning that doesn’t reflect the successful business you’re building
  • Tired of your to-do list screaming at you because you can never seem to get everything finished

Hi, I’m Barbara Hemphill.

Fuquay-Varina Chamber of Commerce Business EXPO 2013 at the Community Center, 8-29-2013

I’ve been where you are. People are always shocked when I tell them I’m not a naturally organized person. Not even close! I know how frustrating it is to feel like your business is running you and your clutter is keeping you from success. I developed my systems to provide a better way. I started my productivity consulting business in 1978 and have been helping entrepreneurs and small business owners create profitable, Productive Environments ever since. My signature mix is combining tried-and-true productivity systems with practical solutions that busy entrepreneurs will actually use. Because I don’t know about you, but I certainly don’t have an hour each day to color-code every paper that comes into my office! Along with my right-hand productivity solutionista Andrea Anderson, I help entrepreneurs grow their businesses by streamlining their environments, with our company Productive Environment Institute. Over the past 38 years, I’ve helped entrepreneurs like you take control of their businesses by implementing simple-but-powerful SYSTEMS: Saving You Space, Time, Energy, and Money™ . I’ve been teaching, testing, and perfecting these systems in-person for years, but this is the first time I’m offering them on an online platform. They are truly life-changing, and I can’t wait to share Total Office Transformation™ to help you revolutionize your business.[/text_block][/op_liveeditor_element]

[op_liveeditor_element data-style=””][text_block style=”style_1.png” align=”left” font_size=”16″ font_font=”Raleway”]IT’S AS THOUGH I HIRED ANOTHER PERSON TO WORK IN MY OFFICE.

Our organization has grown by 400% in the past year. Since paperwork is one of my greatest challenges, Barbara’s system manages the mounds of paper that have tied me down so I am free to run my business more efficiently and effectively. I am grateful for this time-saving program and cannot even imagine how I functioned without it. It’s as though I hired another person to work in my office.

– Janelle Hail, Founder/President The National Breast Cancer Foundation[/text_block][/op_liveeditor_element]




[text_block style=”style_1.png” align=”left” font_size=”18″ font_font=”Raleway”]Andrea and I have over 50 years of combined experience in the organization and productivity fields. We’ve put our systems through the wringer, tested them with thousands of different entrepreneurs and organizations, and we know Total Office Transformation™ not only works — it truly has the power to produce miraculous changes for your business.

I always say Andrea and I are like peanut butter and jelly. Our different backgrounds and personalities combine to make something really special. I’m the creative soul and Andrea’s the strategic mind — and together, we bring the perfect balance to teaching.

We’ve been teaching Total Office Transformation™ to entrepreneurs and small businesses for 10+ years, and we have it down to a science.

Together with our team of Certified Productive Environment Specialists, we have used Total Office Transformation™ (previously called “The 8-Hour Miracle™”) to transform thousands of offices around the world. The program has been tested and perfected to a point where we can guarantee it will work for you. (More on that below.)[/text_block]

We don’t want to overwhelm you with theories or practices that won’t work for busy entrepreneurs — we only share the golden nuggets that will give you more money, more time, and deeper relationships.[/text_block]

[text_block style=”style_1.png” align=”left” font_size=”18″ font_font=”Raleway”]We know that knowledge without action is worthless. (Literally worthless, as in, it won’t earn you a dime.) So our mission isn’t just sharing information with you, but giving you the systems to put them into practice.

We created Total Office Transformation™ to give entrepreneurs an easy-to-follow system to streamline their offices and focus on the work they truly love.[/text_block]

[op_liveeditor_element data-style=””][text_block style=”undefined” align=”left” font_size=”18″ font_font=”Droid%20Serif” font_style=”italic”]Although my office was clean, my files were a disaster! My file drawers held folders from 4 years ago and I couldn’t find the time to cull through them and create room for new files. Everything was just stacking up and it felt very overwhelming. I couldn’t find anything I needed and nothing was organized.
I simply couldn’t go on as I had been. I knew that if I was hit by a bus one day, my employees would never be able to sort everything out. I felt like a bad business owner because I didn’t have a handle on things.

The experience of working with Barbara was easy and, I couldn’t believe it, so much fun! The first thing we did was clean off the top of my desk, which, while clean, was very cluttered with knick-knacks. We flew through the process of sorting through what I had in my file cabinets—either keeping, giving away or throwing out what wasn’t needed. We filled several large trash bags in the process.
Now, it takes me seconds, literally, to find anything. Using a simple web and mobile app, Barbara helped me put everything in order that I can find immediately with a simple search on my laptop or phone. I feel like I AM in control, not my files!

I feel better and more productive knowing that my work and life are organized. I told Barbara that I knew I couldn’t create world peace if I didn’t have inner peace. Well, Barbara helped me to reclaim my inner peace so I can move forward with confidence and ease as I go about my day.

So what do those 150 hours really cost you?
Let’s say you value your time at $200/hour. Those 150 wasted hours (priced at $200/hour) total $30,000 per year in potential income.[/text_block]

[op_liveeditor_element data-style=””][text_block style=”undefined” align=”left” font_size=”18″ font_font=”Droid%20Serif” font_style=”italic”]I admit I was a little worried that it would be taxing to make the decisions you have to make when organizing spaces. I had about ten boxes of “stuff,” containing a lot of what used to be useful “stuff”, but more so emotional “stuff” that I wasn’t ready to unearth.

But I came out on the other side of it unscathed. Barbara’s process helps to remove much of the indecisiveness that typically comes with this type of organizing, and it allowed me to finally be done with my old anvils.

Not only is my new office space neat and orderly, the tools Barbara set up to keep things organized were easy to put in place, and more importantly, are easy to continue using – and they are still keeping my office space organized and productive.

Last week I needed to find my car and home insurance details, and after a quick and easy search in Workflowy, there they were, in File #22. I’m not sure I would ever have found them in time to meet with my insurance agent before working with Barbara.

It is indeed well worth your time to have Barbara perform her magic on you too!

I needed to get organized and be the example of a great leader. How can you ask your staff to keep their area straight if you can’t do it yourself? ‘Practice what you preach’ is what my dad and mom taught me. This was the first time I have ever spent money like that, but it has been worth it.

Now, I’m saving hours (literally) per day. I can find any paper document in my office within 10 seconds. For me, that is a major accomplishment.

The time savings allows me to do other more productive tasks — e.g., having “staff huddles” with my team every morning, looking at key performance indicators, spending time with existing clients, identifying other services we can provide, and meeting with prospective clients.

I also have peace of mind. I’m exercising 3 days/week, having lunch with my wife every day, and stopped working on Saturdays!
