Josh Fonger is a consultant, coach, and speaker. Developing and implementing systematic solutions to complex business problems, he is the sole worldwide licensing agent for the Work the System Method, based on Sam Carpenter’s book Work the System: The Simple Mechanics of Making More and Working Less, now in its fourth edition.
His independent firm, Work the System Enterprises, has attracted over 100,000 business owners from over 50 countries. Josh has personally consulted or coached over 1,000 business owners from more than 300 industries, from small startup businesses to $500M enterprises.
Josh met Sam Carpenter in Bend, Oregon in 2011 after reading Sam’s book. He worked with Sam for eight years after recognizing that they shared a common vision of helping business owners get “unstuck” by developing simple, systematic solutions to their problems. Then, in 2018, with Sam’s blessing, he formed his own consulting/coaching company . “There is nobody in the world better equipped at helping business owners implement the WTS Methodology than Josh,” says Carpenter. Sam and Josh communicate regularly.
Now living in Hawaii with his family, Josh graduated from the University of Michigan with a bachelor’s in architecture before getting his MBA from Arizona State University. When he’s not coaching or consulting to business owners, Josh enjoys setting up “personal systems” to maximize his time with his wife and three boys.
