92 - "In Your Face" Productivity Tools (with Amber de la Garza)

It’s about spending your best time on your best activities…

Productivity Specialist, Amber de la Garza hit the nail on the head with her definition of productivity!  She covers the most important two elements for working productively: the right energy and the right things.  You’re in for a seriously high quality conversation that could have went on for another two hours!  Amber and I are very much aligned with all things productivity so it was a pleasure geeking out with her on the podcast.

Amber works with professionals, entrepreneurs and corporations to help build businesses with better systems, organization and efficiency through training, consulting and speaking. You’ll find some great blog articles from Amber at TheProductivitySpecialist.com where she dives deep into efficiency and time management concepts.  Further, she’ll be launching her own podcast in the not too distant future so you’ll have another source of great content!

"Productivity is a choice you make everyday and, are you making that choice?" -Amber De La Garza
