Back by popular, uncontrollable, somewhat UNCOMFORTABLE demand is my wife, Nazach Rodriguez HYPHEN Snapp (you like the emphasis on hyphen, don't you)...

Yes, she's in the Snappified Studio as we turn the tables this week and give her the OPPORTUNITY to serve as your stand-in HOST!

It’s our NEW TOPIC of the MONTH…. and her 9-month-prego-self actually interviews me, your regular host, Nick Snapp!

              "I theme my work and I theme my home" - Nazach Snapp

 

 

We give a really nice snapshot (if I do say so myself, and no pun intended) on tracking time and how to figure out easy, tactical ways of improving how we spend our time.

"If you don't have a way to know where you are at, then you can never determine where you are going." - Nick Snapp

I always have a lot of fun on the podcast with my wife because it gives us this really unique forum for asking each other questions that we normally wouldn’t ask at the dinner table, or during family game night, etc.
