Episode 394 – How To Be More Productive By Taming Your Technology

Today is Labor Day and I am laboring over the podcast to keep you informed and in the loop. Most entrepreneurs or solopreneurs work more hours than your typical 9-5 worker, but there are additional payoffs afforded those who control their own time.

If you can spend $100 a year to save 1 hour per month that you could bill $100 for… you would be $1100 ahead of the game by the end of the year!
