Finding The Right Support To Grow Your Business Deciphering The World Of Courses, Trainings, Masterminds, Coaching, And Mentorship

Thinking back on my entrepreneurial journey and the business support I’ve received, it is clear to me that the close business friends I had, trainings I attended, courses I took, mastermind groups I joined, and coaches I had have had a huge impact on the entrepreneur I am today.

Exploiting Your Productivity Sweet Spot To Get The Most Out Of Every Day

If you’re an entrepreneur, you likely get caught up spending entire days engaging in fruitless activities that don’t make you money more often than you’d like to admit. You could be busy literally the entire day and not move the needle in your business at all.

Productivity is a choice you must make consistently if you want to see the dramatic results you desire in your business.

Be proactive with your time by exploiting your productivity sweet spot – the combination of factors that make you most productive. That entails honoring your unique rhythms, being authentic to who you are, and creating a schedule in alignment with your energy levels and natural tendencies so you can show up as your best self for the high value activities that will grow your business. You will get far better results showing up and working in your productivity sweet spot for two hours each day consistently when compounded over time, than working eight hours each day but only showing up sporadically when you feel like it. Exploiting your productivity sweet spot will increase your effectiveness and help you reach new heights in your business.

Have you ever been told procrastination is a good thing? Likely not. The reasons you shouldn’t procrastinate are endless: it increases your anxiety and stress, the task could take longer than expected, you could run out of time, the result is sloppy work, something more important could come up, you won’t have time to make edits, working under pressure makes the job more tough, and so on.

Just prior to the year 2000 it was believed that 98 percent of homes in the U.S. had at least one television set – and many of those sets were on for over seven hours a day!
