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.

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...
