  5. 5. The Problem Eric has successfully built a civil engineering firm with a team of 5 that largely operates virtually. As such, Eric mostly works from a home satellite office. Lately, he’s been at the end of his rope - no matter how hard he tried he seemed to be losing traction on some important projects. With a desk that did not stay clutter-free for longer than a day, his growing concern of losing clients due to habitually missed project deadlines led him to give us a call. Copyright © 2007—2016.
