In this episode I am talking about something that is really dear to my heart - productivity! I run four companies and without the tools I am using, I would not be able to do my job.

Magic will happen with your productivity!  (P.S. Here is the book by Michael Hyatt that I am mentioning in the episode: "Shave 10 hours off your work week" Masterpiece! P.S.
