Laura Leist, CPO, MOS, CRTS

Founder, Productivity Specialist™, Speaker

Since launching Eliminate Chaos in 2000, Laura Leist has walked her own talk about getting more done to allow “More Time for Life®.” A poster child for getting much accomplished, this self-described overachiever and award-winning entrepreneur has grown what was once a one-woman show into a thriving business. She has also written nine books, including: Eliminate Chaos: The 10-Step Process to Organize Your Home and Life (Sasquatch Books 2006) Eliminate the Chaos at Work: 25 Techniques to Increase Productivity (Wiley 2011) Increase Your Productivity Using Microsoft Outlook (2010 and 2013 versions).

Today Eliminate Chaos operates three divisions – residential organizing, business productivity, and speaking.

Appreciative clients include CEOs of multi-billion dollar corporations, paper-and-systems-fatigued law offices, high-profile authors, speakers, athletes and media personalities, solopreneurs, and divas of domesticity. Though they come from all walks of life and work, they all share a universal need to invest in professional help to escape the clutter, disorganization and lack of productivity that slows them down, steals valuable time from their lives, and puts a crimp on their upside earning potential.

Eliminate Chaos employs productivity and organization specialists who are united in their belief that everyone can enjoy life more if they just get organized first. Laura sets the example for the team. She has the rare ability to serve as a strategic, big-picture thinker AND handle the most complicated, detailed projects without letting anything slip through the cracks.

Laura’s IT Experience Eliminates Chaos at Work.

Laura's education, training, and dynamic background in information technology bring welcome calm to the technology storm. Her proven ability to streamline processes was rewarded early in her career when she was recognized as the employee of the year for SAFECO Surety. For over a decade Laura designed computer systems to manage work processes and information to help employees store and retrieve information quickly. What makes her contribution to client success so valuable is the combination of her prior career experience and her gift for explaining how to make the most of technology in a non-geek-speak way.

Creating Order Out of Chaos So Clients Find What They Need Fast.

Clients come to Laura overwhelmed by technology tools and the steep learning curves associated with making the most of them. Laura consults with clients about their business processes and creates custom productivity systems. As a result, clients gain control and mastery over mobile devices, customer relationship management tools, and file sharing systems that save them valuable time and make life a whole lot easier. For those for whom technology tools were once a challenge, this is cause for celebration.

Laura's standards take Eliminate Chaos to another level.

  “The Eliminate Chaos team arrived, on time, to tackle an unpacking project. Their effectiveness, attention to detail and expertise changed my life. While I've worked with other professional organizers, Eliminate Chaos has a mixture of efficiency refinement and professional standards that take them to another level, using thoughtful problem solving. They are the best.”
- Audrey Beaulac

Jill Turner-Willox
Martha Stewart would be envious of Laura's skills.

  “One of the gentlemen installing the cabinet hardware told Denise that based on what the inside of her cabinets and drawers look like - Martha Stewart would be envious of her organizational skills!”
- Jill Turner-Willox, Designer

MaryPat Cheng
Laura provides exceptional service.

  “I gain two things when I work with Laura: organization and the tools and strategies to stay organized! She observes how we work and develops systems and tools to help us work more efficiently. Laura holds herself to very high standards and it shows in her work. When I have welcomed Laura into my home and business, Laura has always treated me, members of my family and staff with respect and kindness. She listens well to our needs, goals and limitations. She has a special way of making us comfortable and we always have fun and laugh. She has earned my trust. Laura is completely dependable and reliable and I can count on her to be on time, and complete project in the amount of time she says it will take to complete them.”

Our 2nd Move with Eliminate Chaos

  “Laura and her team coordinated our move; packed and unpacked; organized closets, the garage, and the kitchen; hung artwork; and generally made our move smooth, efficient, and successful. Laura and every team member were friendly, efficient, encouraging, and made life during a move much easier. This is our second move with Eliminate Chaos, and if we move again, we will call Laura.”

- Melody Robidoux

Relo - Larry Williams
Zero Breakage!

  “Eliminate Chaos did a wonderful job of moving two extremely busy professionals with limited bandwidth, from 2 houses into one condo (and a couple of storage units). Zero breakage, up and running same day, and hugely reduced stress since everything is labeled and where it should be. Great experience - thank you Laura and team!”
- Larry Williams

Debra Brownnell - Windermere
Turned out better than I could have imagined.

  “I had no energy to unpack my home office. Supplies had been in boxes on the floor for a year. My office configuration allowed no room to move about. The finished product turned out even better than I could have imagined. Laura was so easy to have in my home for three long days and she worked so hard to make the systems work for me. Laura even helped me with Outlook for all aspects of my life and devised files and containers to help me stay organized.”
- Debra Brownell, Windermere Real Estate

Myles Kahn
Unique ability to tackle problems head-on.

  “Laura saved my sanity and helped my home-based business immeasurably. She has the unique ability to tackle the logistical problem head-on while dealing with the stress and frustration created by the situation simultaneously. I could not recommend anyone more strenuously!”
- Myles Kahn

Valerie
High Quality Service

  “Laura and her team offer a unique, high quality service that is invaluable. I am moving cross country and she organized and packed my valuables and connected me with movers. Laura’s team is incredibly professional and skilled and took all the stress out of my move. I highly recommend their services!”
- Valerie

Angela
Who said moving can't be fun?

  “Laura Leist and her crew of amazing organizers helped us move out of a house where we had lived for almost 20 years and into a new home. Not only was the move successful, but actually fun. They organized our belongings in our new home with such expertise, expediency and care that it felt like home right away.”
