Setting Expectations expectations productivity Jan 25, 2021

Have you thought about setting expectations for you, for your team, for your vendors, for your clients?

Not just setting expectations, but actually writing them down.

See, a lot of us are so busy at our job as entrepreneurs that we don't stop and think
about setting expectations.

One expectation you can set is, how long is it going to be before you reply to a customer email.

Is it four hours? Is it 24 hours? Is it a week?

You can't expect your customers to know your expectations that you...

Rest is as Important as Work productivity rest work Jan 23, 2021

There seems to be a badge of honor for working a lot of hours, and seven days a week, and stressing out over what needs to get done, what didn't get done well.

But I want you to stop and think about working.

As far as I can read in my research, from the Bible to business books and anywhere else, we were never designed to work and work and work and work and work.

Now we are supposed to work. We're not supposed to live off the government bailouts, but we're supposed to work.

But you're...

What Are You Exposing Yourself To? productivity Jan 22, 2021

You probably already know that you shouldn't be watching the news.

You shouldn't be consuming any news, whether it's on social media, or TV, or your friends or your family because the news is all about fear-mongering.

So, here's my question to you.

What are you exposing yourself to throughout the day?

From the moment you wake up, to the moment you go to bed. I want you to think about it.

Don't Do This (A Rant) email list productivity Jan 18, 2021

In this video, I have a rant for you. A rant about something that really annoys me.

Just because you have someone's email address does not mean they gave you permission to add them to your email list.

In Canada, the United States, and the European Union, you can be fined heavily for adding people to your email list without their permission.

So don't do it.

Because if you add me to your email list without my permission, I will never, ever buy from you.

I will automatically report you...
