Do you have a passion for organization and helping others?

Become an Expert Productivity Consultant



Our Certification as a Productive Environment Specialist™ (CPES) is a unique combination of an online, self-paced program and live group coaching. The typical time to complete this portion of the program is around 90 days. Though not required, if the program is not finished in 90 days, you will be invited to continue with the next enrollment group at no additional charge.


"Together, we're better!" is our mantra! One of the most valuable features of the CPES Program is the community of other Certified Productive Environment Specialists™. You will be invited to participate in two CPES Team webinars each month and private groups for ongoing peer support.


For those in the Master's Program, the Private Business Development Retreat in Carolina Beach, NC, with Barbara Hemphill & Andrea Anderson is a critical piece to your business. The purpose of this retreat is for you to focus on strategy, optimization, and health for your success.


Another benefit of the Master's Program is one-on-one coaching calls with Andrea and/or Barbara to focus on business development. Our goal is to provide coaching and support as you take action required to build a profitable, sustainable business.

“It took me two years to make the commitment and I wish I had made it sooner. Completing the CPES training has been extremely rewarding. My happy place is helping solopreneurs/small business owners. I know my CPES training has enhanced my ability to help them transform and organize their home offices and implement systems and processes as well as provide me the confidence and credentials to do so. After implementing the Office Transformation in my own home office, it has definitely made my office neater and become a room I enjoy walking into each morning.”

“The CPES Training program is incredible! It is so well structured, easy-to-follow and the individual coaching from Barbara and Andrea is invaluable. You can move at your own pace, and the combination of video and written material provides great variety. The level of support received from the CPES community is amazing. It truly lives and breathes Barbara’s saying “Together we are better!” Joining this program is the best decision I could have made for my business. My only regret is that I did not find it sooner.”

-Kathy M.

“It is great to have a tried and true system that works for almost everyone. I feel confident that I can expertly solve a problem for my clients by helping them create a productive environment for their business. The group of leaders and other specialists are awesome. The opportunities to connect and share make you feel part of something special. The leaders are always available and willing to help with whatever you need. The materials are easy to follow, very thorough, and very well organized. I have everything I need to start delivering this solution to my clients.”
