We believe that sustainable productivity must be mission-inspired and internally motivated, it can't be mandated.
The philosophy behind our work goes well beyond things like time management, task management, being well-organized, or maximizing productivity.
Our solutions are designed to inherently address a much deeper rooted challenge... they provide a framework for habitually believing in yourself and having a real sense of direction and focus.
Everyone wants to feel like they have a sense of purpose. Having a sense of purpose requires having a sense of direction. Having a sense of direction implies that you're going somewhere. ZerModus designs the roadmaps people are looking for.
We practice design thinking to find the best ways of doing things. How will you embark on your mission each day?
founder + creative director
Elizabeth has been designing her own daily planners since she was a college student. It started because she was frustrated with the selection from retailers either lacking a certain degree of professionalism or having daily layouts that were impractically structured.
And right when she was seriously considering taking these organic beginnings and making a business out of it, she decided to put the idea on hold and get some experience working for other entrepreneurs before going all-in on her own ideas.
Fast forward nearly a decade later, to March of 2017 when the opportunity arose for Elizabeth to branch out on her own and reclaim her dream of "going all-in" on her ideas. In her experience of working for other businesses, she came to realize that there are essentially two kinds of professionals in the world.
There are passionate professionals, and then there are passive professionals. Passionate professionals build a career. Passive professionals collect a paycheck. And it's that discovery that fuels our mission to enable the movers and shakers of the world.
Everything we do is about designing your state of mind and having a sense of purpose with how you will leave your mark and impact others in your career.

co-founder + operations director
Lisa looks at the world a little differently than most people. She scans the horizon for the next challenge and follows that path to new solutions. This call to adventure has allowed her to explore the connection between various roles and learn from some incredible mentors along the way. With the guidance of these teachers, she has learned that it is not what you do, but how you do it, that matters.
As a founding member of platinum recording artist, Toadies, she connected with a new voice to her artistry. Fun Fact: Lisa did not know how to play the bass when she joined the band. The “not knowing” drove her to find a way and courageously move through fear, ignoring the critics. The Toadies started playing live shows only three months later.
When the Toadies ended, Lisa went out into the world to discover what she wanted to do when she grew up, now that literally being a rock star was checked off the list. She got her irrigator’s license, managed international marketing for a juice company, and invented some cool stuff using nanotechnology. The common thread here is that she always looked for opportunities to help people and leave spaces better than when she found them.
Being in the music industry helped Lisa realize that there is a huge slant, like a fat kid on a see-saw, when it comes to equality and inclusion in the workplace. There will be a day, although it may take some consciousness hacking when the balance is set right. Now, she is on her next mission… with ZerModus.
