80 - Seriously, You're Working Too Hard (w/ Amanda Goldman-Petri & Luis Congdon)

This month has been all about how to setup your business such that you’re so hyper-productive and efficient that you only have to work four days per week (if you want to...)

I’m telling you Snappy Nation, we brought in some serious 3-Day Weekend SUPERSTARS for this month’s panel!

First, it wasn’t actually a panel in the traditional sense...it was more like a “virtual panel,” because one of our guests was kind enough to answer your questions virtually.

Her name is Amanda Golman-Petri, and you wanna talk about efficiency?  When it comes to systems and processes I would put Amanda up against ANYBODY head to head on.  She’s lived and learned from the hustle, from all the non-stop nonsense and she made a choice to DELIBERATELY setup her current business differently.

Amanda’s business, MarketLikeaNerd.com leverages automation and processes to the fullest extent while helping her clients, from what Amanda promotes, create a sustainable business that welcomes 50 new ideal clients every 90 days!  

It was awesome having Amanda on thes how, I learned a ton from her story and way of thinking.

Also featured on this “quasi-panel” is Mr. Luis Congdon of ThrivingLaunch.com

Luis and I have been working with since early this year; he and his life partner Kamala Chambers mentored me through the development of a product I’ll be coming out with early next year.

Luis is committed to helping entrepreneurs get recognized and make money online so they can live a life of freedom.  Luis and Kamala spend their time traveling the world together, I never know where they'll will pop up next as I see him checking in on Facebook. 

We have some great questions from you listeners of the podcast and I think my hyper-productive guests, Luis and Amanda did a great job tackling and the commonality between ALL my guests this month is effect process.
