You can feel focused, balanced, and effective at work.

I wasn’t born organized…


I became organized through years of self-education and trial-and-error early in my career.

In 2007, it occurred to me that other businesspeople shouldn’t have to struggle with getting organized like I did, so I quit my corporate job and hung out my shingle as a productivity coachspeaker, and writer. Since then, I have helped thousands of businesspeople nationwide maximize their effectiveness, balance their priorities, and generate outstanding results.

My clients experience the following results:

  • Improved time and task management practices that increase productivity while often reducing overall hours worked
  • Enhanced email management practices that reduce the likelihood of miscommunication and missed communication
  • Better management of people, processes, and projects 

I use tactical and practical productivity-improving strategies that help clients get things done, reduce stress, and improve work/life balance.

Here are a few of my happy clients…


Hollywood comes South, beauty and brains with a killer smile that teaches better methods and processes in time management, planning, overcoming barriers, and being more successful and productive as an individual. A true Jedi of her trade.

Melissa Gratias has worked with me, my partner, and our staff over the past 6 months.  She has done an outstanding job of guiding us to have a far more organized office and system of work flow. She will cost those working with her nothing compared to the money she will save them.
~ Financial Planner

Melissa Gratias honed in on my needs and provided expert advice and help in my transition to consulting and managing several creative projects on multiple computers. With so many options using technology in our work, I needed her expert guidance. Mission accomplished!
~ Owner/Consultant

Listening to you yesterday at the conference was like sitting in a church pew and feeling like the minister is talking right to you and no one else. Your presentation was the highlight of the conference for me, and I think I took over 8 pages of notes! You truly are an inspiration, and it was so nice to hear about work-life balance from someone who actually practices it and does not just research it.
~ Graduate Student, Education

Melissa’s techniques for organization have revolutionized the way I prioritize and process projects and paperwork. Her consultation was invaluable.
