Dear Business Owner:
Sam Carpenter here, author of Work the System: The Simple Mechanics of Making More and Working Less.
Today I’m giving you…
For months, maybe even years, you’ve had my book. As you know, it describes how I went from a prisoner of my business to the master of it.
How I went from 80+ hour workweeks to working only 2 hours per week.
How I went from near-bankruptcy and teetering on poverty, to living in the Top-1% of income earners in the USA.
The solution? SYSTEMS MANAGEMENT.
Is my book sitting on your shelf gathering dust? Or, is it in PDF or audio form, invisibly residing on your hard drive, forgotten?
How come? It’s a road map to the freedom and success you’ve always wanted!
If you’d like to systemize your business, but you never seem to get around to it, please keep reading.
Below I’ll explain how we will systemize your business FOR YOU.
Let’s face it. In the beginning, writing scores of procedures is necessary but it’s time consuming.
And so, it’s a good possibility it’s not going to happen at all!
When we consult with business owners, this #1 concern comes up over and over again: “I know I need procedures to free up my time, but I don’t have time to create them.”
What a cruel, vicious cycle. But if you aren’t writing procedures, who will?
Damned if you do. Damned if you don’t.
So are you thinking, “Hmm… setting up systems is just too much of a headache?”
But if you don’t systemize, what are you NOT accomplishing?
If you’re like most entrepreneurs, you already know how you’d grow your business by $100K, $1M, maybe even $10M, if you just had the time.
What is it you would do? Perhaps:
…yet this big opportunity fades away because you’re just too busy juggling the small stuff.
Doesn’t it drive you crazy?
Your next million-dollar move is at your fingertips, yet you can’t do anything about it because you’re trapped into putting out fires day after day. You’re dealing with:
…and on and on and on.
Think of the money you’d make!
The money you’d save.
The stress you’d avoid.
The time you’d gain.
The impact you would make on your team – they’d enjoy a much smoother and calmer work-day!
The impact you could make on your community with the extra time and money you’ll have available.
It’s all at your fingertips, and the answer is in precisely managing your business systems.
The concept of systems management is simple. Writing checklists, procedures, and principles must be as easy as making a grocery list, right? Not so fast – it requires more knowledge than you might expect. It can be tough to know:
Plus – who on your team is going to do all the work of writing procedure after procedure?
There’s hours upon hours of work to grind out…that’s why I call this phase the “heavy lifting!”
I don’t blame you if you feel hesitant about assigning this crucial task to your office manager, operations manager, or HR director.
In fact, you may be quietly screaming…
You’re looking for a dedicated, experienced, professional procedure-writer to take this project by the horns and drive it forward for you. Someone who will:
Below I’ll describe how you can finally get the “heavy lifting” phase of systemizing your business DONE, without doing all the work yourself.
This is a “done-for-you” service where we fly in and systemize your business for you.
If you’d like to learn more, keep reading. Or if you’d just like to get started, email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Roughly five years ago, I got myself into a bit of a bind. I had this great business – Centratel – where I was working only 2 hours per week.
Other entrepreneurs found my book and wanted to know how they could work only 2 hours per week too, so I decided I would help them.
Soon I would be back up to working 40 hours per week! (Believe me, the irony of this smacks me in the face every time I think of it: Me, the “Systems Guy” spending 40+ hours per week helping other business owners work only 2 hours per week. Geez!)
So I went on the hunt to find a replacement for me!
I needed someone who could take the ball and run with it. Someone who already had tons of experience, education, and some serious consulting chops. Enter…
His name is Josh Fonger.
Not only has he mastered the principles of Work the System, he’s also got the experience and structure of an MBA to be an A+ consultant in the Work the System Method.
Before joining me, Josh helped 75 small businesses grow and evolve by going deep inside. Training sales managers, creating financial forecasts, developing merchandising strategies, tweaking performance-based pay plans, mentoring outside sales agents, writing job descriptions, turning companies around that were on the brink of bankruptcy,... you name it!
Since joining me, Josh has now helped nearly 300 businesses implement the specifics of the Work the System Method by carefully dissecting individual processes, optimizing them, then documenting them for maximum scalability and leverage.
He’s now personally worked with entrepreneurs in the following industries: (Partial list)
As you can see, Josh has a deep base of experience and knowledge to help you get systems strategies implemented in your business. But there’s also this: He’s the only one on the face of the planet that I trust to deliver the Work the System method for me.
And I’m very picky…
Josh regularly WOWs our clients. Here’s what some of them say:
“Having Josh has been awesome! My sales have gone up 23% in the last 4 months and I am spending less and less time at the office… As a side bonus, I’ve kicked my caffeine addiction and made some personal life tweaks that have had a major impact on the home-front.” -Brandon Roggow – Habitat Health & Fitness
“I thought Josh’s presentations and analysis were very helpful. I would highly recommend Josh and WTS. My encounter with WTS and his help was ‘Life Changing.’ Thanks a million.” -Oli Traustason, MD -Orion Eye, Surgery Center
“Josh has been instrumental in helping our family business become efficient and lean. I can easily recommend Josh and his company to any business looking to create systems, processes and procedures to streamline operations.” -Amy Smith – Saratoga Arms Hotel
“… thank you Josh for your guidance, and a wonderful program. The one on one time was very valuable, and I appreciate your ‘can do’ and the way you directed me in the development of my business. It was a very worthwhile investment, I would recommend it to everyone!” -Dr. Tony Cigno – Cigno Family Dental
“My investment with the WTS program has been very beneficial for the company… It has greatly improved the communication and expectations with our staff, clients and vendors and we continue to refine our systems daily to be the most efficient and simple that we can get them… The resources we gained via this training have helped us continue to grow the company. I just wish I had done it sooner!” -Adam Sayler – Arthur Winn Property Services
“Josh is very professional and guides you through creating systems in your workplace with a sense of ease. His experience in the process is obvious and gave me confidence to follow through.” -Ahmad Jooma – Jooma Care Homes
“I really enjoyed working with Josh one-on-one… He knows how to keep you focused on the important tasks at hand… There’s something to be said for accountability!” -Larry Aull, Pharm. D. – Head to Toe, Research and Development
“Using Josh’s systems of automating our business…has changed the way we operate our business!” -Jason Bross – Lifestyle Foods
“I have known about the need for and importance of having working procedures… We struggled with this entire process for years… Well, that has all changed now. Our manager group (myself included) now have clarity… Thank you so much for getting us on the right track.” -David Bardon – Bardon Bowling Centers
“After reading the book I realized that this is exactly what my engineering business was lacking over the past years… now I have company buy-in to the changes needed to run my company from an ‘outside and slightly elevated’ position. If you want to get your systems working then I highly recommend getting Josh’s professional guidance.” -John Cruikshank – JMC2 Civil Engineers & Surveyors
When Josh takes you on as a client you’ll get a customized plan broken up into 3 phases:
Where most consultants quit – at the discussion and planning stage – Josh is just getting started. The real magic of Josh’s work happens once he starts implementing. Instead of talking about what to do, he pulls up a chair and just does it!
With the experience of working with hundreds of companies, seeing all of their “Best Practices,” Josh is bringing you the best of the best.
He’s developing a long-term asset for you, a new operating system for your business. You and your team will use it year after year.
Best of all?
The work the system framework never becomes obsolete. The longer your team uses it, the stronger it gets. It’s a self-improving, ever-strengthening asset you’ll leverage every single day.
While Josh is leading the charge as your “Procedure Project Manager,” you get to sit back and cruise along “business as usual.” Watch in wonder while Josh surgically operates on your business, procedure by procedure, building the machine you’ve always dreamed of.
While barely lifting a finger, you’ll watch how your business gets a 200-horsepower upgrade in the blink of an eye! You keep focusing on what you do best while Josh takes care of all the heavy lifting.
Then, two or three weeks later, with your business humming along, Josh will pack up his tools, job complete, and hand the keys over to you.
And with your team fully trained on how to drive your newly-built machine, you’ll never have to worry about front-line tasks bogging you down again.
Maybe. Maybe not.
Not every business makes it through our application process.
We only work with a small, exclusive roster of businesses wanting to see a massive change right now.
A few of our qualifications:
Your business needs to be big enough to bring Josh in. If you aren’t selling at least $1,000,000 per year, it doesn’t make sense to hire us.
Because the nature of this service requires a solid working relationship between you and Josh, it’s important we all get along. We need to know you’re ready to make the changes required to systemize your business.
Josh only wants to work with businesses (and business owners) he’s confident will succeed.
The application process is private, and includes an interview with Josh.
To get more information, please email email@example.com.
Use the subject line: “Information Requested – Done-For-You Systemization Program.”
In the body of your email, please describe:
- Paragraph 1) Why you’re seeking help. Be specific. “Because I need systems,” isn’t enough. Give Josh the details on what’s breaking down. Is it production? Hiring? Sales? Everything…?
- Paragraph 2) Describe what you’re losing by not having a systems methodology. Are you leaving money on the table? Is your health faltering? Are your kids slipping away? Are you worried your spouse is losing faith? Are you wanting to sell your business? Open new locations? Josh needs to know these details if he’s going to be able to help you.
- Paragraph 3) What you’ll gain if you can finally get systemized. Be specific. Yes, tell Josh about the hard numbers of more customers, more sales, more profit. Also tell him about your reduced work hours. Tell him about how you’ll enjoy life more. The ways you’ll dominate your industry. The pride you’ll feel when your business is a well-oiled machine. Again, Josh needs to know he can make a big enough impact before he selects your business into our exclusive roster.
Give us your mailing address and we'll immediately send you a hard-copy of my book, even before we talk to you.
Then please include a sentence with how soon you’d like to get started. Josh will review your submission, talk to you by phone or Skype, decide whether this is the right move for each party, and then give you a price.
You’ve read Work the System.
The game plan is clear, the goal is exciting. Now it’s time to get it done! Within minutes you’ll have an email submitted to Josh.
Then, within a day or two, you’ll talk to Josh, one-on-one.
And then, within weeks we could be riding shotgun with you, bringing intense systems management to your business.
To your success!
P.S. If you would like to apply for our Done-For-You services, email Josh at firstname.lastname@example.org.
