We help ambitious business owners break free from day-to-day chaos by teaching them how to seize control of their business systems.
Work the System Consultants began in 2011 based on Sam Carpenter’s acclaimed business book Work the System: The Simple Mechanics of Making More and Working Less (Note that the Fourth Edition of the book was released in February 2021). Through the simple but powerful methodology detailed in his book, a steady stream of business owners began contacting him for individual help with their business challenges. At that same time, Josh Fonger was traveling the country as a small business consultant and looking for a better way to help his clients. His customers were having great success while he was with them, but then as time went on they often would go back to their old bad habits, back to where they started. The WTS Method that Sam Carpenter had created was just the solution Josh needed for his clients.
In 2010 Sam and Josh joined together to help as many business owners as possible break free from the day-to-day by getting control of their systems. This has resulted in numerous products, services, workshops, and consultations affecting tens of thousands of businesses around the world.
What Work the System does is very simple: we assist the business owner in: 1. shifting their mindset 2. clarifying their strategy 3. aligning their people and 4. teaching them how to document and then manage their systems. The natural outcome is that the business owner gets their life back while the company’s sales and profits grow. We’ve built a “machine” to do this faster and more effectively than any organization in the world.
