Ready to build your personalized command central and live a pile-free life that strengthens the whole family?
Welcome to Steps to Everyday Productivity!
(Or keep reading for more information.)
Do you ever wonder why you can’t seem to get rid of piles?
We constantly have stuff coming into our lives. Receipts, flyers, bills, kids’ school papers – you name it! But what do you do with the papers you can’t act on right away? You aren’t quite ready to file it, so it goes into “the pile.” And as the pile grows, so does your feeling of overwhelm.
But you don’t have to live in overwhelm…
When you build an optimal, fully-functional Command Central, the piles simply go away.

“What Eric and April taught me gave me peace of mind at the end of every day (something I’ve been striving for for a long time). Thanks, guys, for putting this together!” – Rick Mulready, Business Owner, Online Business Leader
“I love the small segments and the fact that it addresses the mentality before the physical actions. The fact that it is quite literally baby step by baby step and that its focus is short bursts, makes it stand out from other programs.” – Katelyn P.
“Every winter break I think I’ve been subconsciously running away from home by overworking in my classroom when I should be enjoying home, hubby n’ sons. This winter break was different! I actually put myself and home first this time and WHOA! I feel so much lighter, clearer, driven, FREE, and motivated to stay organized in both places. Thanks for sharing the common struggles and life changing ideas!!” – Aisha, CA
“We are finishing up the STEP program together and it’s GOING GREAT!! First time in my life of truly getting ‘fully’ organized and having my hubby on board. Processing the journey together is so awesome–truly eye-opening. It’s been a joy to watch it all evolve and see God’s hand in all of it as well!” – Lisa and Pete, Virginia
Which program should I buy?
STEP Self-Study has the full 8 modules – the complete program to help you get your Command Central up and running. This is a great program if you are able to jump in and are excited and comfortable keeping yourself accountable. You don’t have to have a lot of previous organizational skills or habits; we can help you grow and progress with whatever foundation you currently have.
STEP Mastery is the same 8 modules, with additional support and a lot of accountability. It includes:
- An All-Access Pass for Your Spouse: Come into the program together with your own unique logins, and create a system that works for both of you.
- An Exclusive Facebook Groups & STEP Coaches – Questions? Celebrations? Join us here and share your process and progress. You’ll love seeing the constant stream of “befores and afters!” We offer a STEP Home Family Facebook Group, and a STEP Professional Facebook group.
- Three Live Q&A Calls – Submit your questions and chat live online. Can’t make it? No problem…we’ll send the recordings with the text of the conversation and time stamps to guide you through.
- The STEP Library – There is so much content located in these extra resources for those who are wanting to take their program to the next level. It is truly incredible!
This is a good fit if you feel more overwhelmed, if you need more support, or if you are not as confident moving forward on your own. It’s also a great option for those who are motivated, a self-starter, excited, and maybe wanting some amazing resources to fine tune and really create an amazing system to run your life.
Both programs give you access to our team to ask any questions, but the accountability and help from fellow members in the Facebook groups and Live Q&A is truly beneficial.
What You’ll Get When Your Command Central is in Place…
Clarity and Productivity are Just a Click Away!
We’re April and Eric Perry, and not so long ago, we were exactly where you’re at right now.
I, April, had in fact grown up in a house with “piles” of stuff being normal.
The chaos, however, spurred me into streamlining my life. At the age of 13, I got my first planner. My senior year in high school, I ditched 2 days (yes, TWO full days) to attend a planner training with Franklin Quest. Then, in college, I worked with Franklin-Covey.
So, planning was a skill I not only learned but also strengthened.
But then, motherhood happened and before we knew it… Eric, my husband, and I were totally overwhelmed.
We were both working long hours. At the end of each day, we collapsed on the bed or zoned out in front of the television, mentally, emotionally and physically drained.
In the mornings, we’d wake up with next to no energy. Overwhelm spiraled through the day as projects and to-dos stacked up precariously like a Jenga tower, only to tumble and nose-dive through the many cracks in our everyday schedule.
We were constantly snapping at each other and the kids. The house was cluttered and our lives chaotic.
But it wasn’t as if we weren’t trying. We were.
We were reading all the organizing books we could get our weary hands on. We tried several productivity systems, but nothing stuck for long; we needed a framework, a structure that was adaptable to our needs.
It was only when I, April, discovered David Allen’s Getting Things Done ® process and tailored it to our lives that everything fell into place.
It didn’t happen overnight and we still look to improve, but no longer are we waking up dreading the day and pushing our way through piles of clutter everywhere. I found a way that I could wake up each day feeling excited, and go to bed each night feeling relaxed and accomplished. It was life-changing, to say the least.
No more overwhelm.
No more mental or physical clutter.
No more snapping at each other.
No more lethargy.
No more late fees, missed deadlines, broken promises.
Wanting to share our success, we began teaching this to other families. Soon the individual and family success stories came flooding in.
“The STEP program has changed our lives in so many ways and only for the better. It’s been great to see how both our strengths are brought together to help us better communicate, work as a team, and ultimately accomplish our individual and family goals.” – Scott and Abigail, CA
“Most of my friends and fellow homeschool moms comment on how overly organized I am. (I love organizing things.) My major problem, however, has been organizing my thoughts and my time. This program does ALL three: things, mind, and time–and MORE. I Love the STEP program and highly recommend it even for the most organized person! Thanks April & Eric for creating just what my family needed!” -Denielle C.
“April and Eric make learning the system and setting it up compelling, manageable and fun. Having a community of people working towards the same goals gives me motivation to keep using the system, a place to ask questions, and the chance to see how others are personalizing the steps. April and Eric, thank you for creating this program and community!” -Kristen A.
“April and Eric’s step-by-step process coaches you one step at a time in 7 to 10 minute coaching sessions, which makes it easy to learn, and actually do what’s taught to become organized at our own pace!” -Jeannette K.
Here’s some more success you’ll achieve, when you build your Command Central!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
We are excited for you to be free from the mental overwhelm as you start clearing your life of “piles.” Below you’ll find our most frequently asked questions about joining one of our Steps to Everyday Productivity (STEP) programs. If you have any other questions, simply send us an email at [email protected] Thank you!
Can I start with Self-Study and upgrade to Mastery?
Yes! You can always upgrade to Mastery if you start in Self Study. The coupon code and link are at the bottom of your Self-Study homepage.
If you are debating between the two, we recommend starting in Mastery. The payment amounts per month are almost exactly the same (Self-Study has three payments, Mastery has six). Then, if within 60 days you determine you don’t need the extra support of Mastery, send us an email, and we can downgrade you to STEP Self Study.
What if I have zero time? How much time per day do I need to invest in the program?
We understand. That’s what we want to change for you. The biggest mistake people make when it comes to getting things done is they underestimate the power of what they can do in 10 minutes. The whole program is built in 5- to 10-minute lessons so you can make massive progress, even when you’re drowning. And every 10 minutes you invest will yield 10 times that amount back—over and over again. We have the busiest of people in this program—CEOs, school teachers, doctors, homeschooling mothers, college students who are balancing full-time jobs and families, and more! They love it, it works for them, and most importantly, it will work for you!
What if I can’t start right away?
That’s okay! Joining now allows you to lock in the best price and bonuses. If you are in Mastery, you can come into the Facebook group anytime and you can jump into the actual program whenever you’re ready. The program is self-paced, and you’ll have lifetime access.
Tell me more about your 60 Day money-back guarantee.
We offer a 60-Day, 100% Satisfaction Money-Back Guarantee.
We strive for your satisfaction! You have a FULL 60-Days to test-drive and implement Steps to Everyday Productivity; if you feel it isn’t a fit, we’ll happily refund your money.
Is it hard to get a refund?
We honestly make it super easy—because we know the program works and we trust you. You simply ask for a refund within the 60-day time frame and fill out a brief survey, and we’ll give you a 100% refund.
Is there an extra cost for payment plans?
No–we want this to be as simple as possible for you. Whether you choose single pay or payments, the price overall will be the same. For Mastery, if you choose to single pay, we do give you SIX months of live Q&A calls instead of the regular three.
What if I can’t afford this right now?
Please, no stress! We invite you to apply the four steps you learned in our free webinar, utilize the free resources we have for you at LearnDoBecome.com, and then come back when it’s a better time!
Is this considered a business expense?
We won’t give official tax advice, but we can say that many people have chosen to categorize this as a business expense. Often times, employers are willing to pay for all or half of the program cost.
Is there a yearly charge?
No—your STEP program comes with lifetime access. As we improve the program, you are grandfathered in to all improvements. This is a living, breathing program that is consistently growing in value, and we’re so excited for you to be a part of it!
Is the STEP Library sold separately?
Not at this time. Our STEP library is only included with STEP Mastery, and it is only given if someone purchases through a webinar. In the future, we may offer some components available for purchase separately, but the best pricing will always be within Mastery.
How are payments made?
There is one payment made the day you join, and follow up payments are charged every 30 days until your payments are complete. Payments auto-charge on the credit card or PayPal account you select at checkout.
What happens once I join?
Your login will arrive in your inbox within 5 minutes. You enter the program, click on “Getting Started” and download your STEP Program Checklist. Then, you start with Module 1, Step 1. If you’re in Mastery, click Mastery Resources when you are logged into your program and there will be links to access all of your additional resources, as well. We’re so excited for you!
Will I get anything in the mail?
This program is 100% digital and all resources are available immediately, with LIFETIME access.
Would it be better for me to hire a professional organizer?
You definitely can, but what we often hear is that it costs thousands of dollars, and then when the organizer leaves, you need to learn to maintain the order on your own. This program teaches you how to approach each space as a project, so you can not only GET it clean, but you can KEEP it clean. We are going to help you become your own professional organizer, even if the idea makes you laugh. We’re not good at everything, but we honestly believe we are best in the world at helping people build a solid Command Central that will help them eliminate all the piles in their lives (yes, even the mental clutter!) This is so much more than just “organizing your space”… It’s about getting your life back, moving forward on your projects, and finding the clarity to really pursue your dreams.
What if I have ADD or ADHD? Will this help me?
We didn’t create the program with that intention, but we’ve found that this is ideal for people who struggle with focus issues because it gives them a place to put the ideas that pop into their heads when they’re in the middle of working on something else. We’re going to teach you how to break down big projects into very small, doable steps, making it easier to focus on and complete the projects that are most important to you.
What if I have purchased programs in the past, but I never utilized them? How is this going to be any different?
We totally get it. We want you to invest your money wisely. We’re guessing that in the past, you tried to implement programs you purchased without having a complete “Command Central” in place. When you try to build something on top of chaos, it doesn’t work.
Steps to Everyday Productivity takes an entirely different approach and helps you “clear the decks” and build a Command Central that will then UNLOCK the other courses you have purchased.
It works, and you have 60 days to prove that you can do it.
Also, many people believe they are procrastinators, but we challenge that assumption. We believe you simply haven’t been taught how to effectively manage projects, tasks, and all the details of life. STEP fixes that!
Do not buy this program if you’re comfortable with wading through clutter and chaos… but if you are tired of living in “piles,” this is your way out.
Are you going to keep me motivated?
No, we are not. We want to be clear on this. We are here to help you, teach you step-by-step what to do to get to a place of clarity. If you’re motivated, if you’re tired of living in your piles, if you’re tired of looking for things, we are here to help you know exactly what to do and give you support along the way. You have to open the program. We’re not going to come to your house and make you open the program. But as long as you open the program and go through the steps, we know that you will get the results you are looking for. We want you to come in committed. Because once you come in committed, you will have the support and steps you need to break free from the overwhelm.
I think you have more trust in me than I have in myself. Do you think that’s true?
Absolutely! Because we see people in your exact same situation, making progress and getting out of the clutter- every single day. You’re not lazy and you don’t have to be stuck here forever. You just don’t want to spend your time on things that won’t yield results. We get that. This program is NOT about moving piles around and around. It’s about eliminating them. We know it’s possible, and we want you to experience it for yourself!
