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

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 4 days per week and I gotta tell ya I brought in some SUPERSTARS for this panel...

It wasn’t actually really a panel, it was more like a “virtual panel,” as one of our guests was kind enough to answer your questions virtually...and her name is Amanda Golman-Petri, and you wanna talk about efficiency?

79 - Unique Ways to Work Smarter Not Harder (with Arne Giske)

79 - Unique Ways to Work Smarter Not Harder (with Arne Giske)

The secret to making every weekend, a three-day weekend. is learning to work smarter, not harder.

You’ve heard this expression before and we've been talking about four-day workweeks and three-day weekends all month long.  So instead of seeking out entrepreneurs who are living the four-day workweek lifestyle, I decided to poll a few of my online communities, one of which I’m very active in, managed by Jill and Josh Stanton called Screw the 9 to 5 to see what they had to say about working smarter not harder.

Getting your time and your life back starts with effective systems and processes and I’ve yet to meet anyone as addicted to systems and processes as I am than my guest today, Jeff “J” Hunter. 

J’s the founder of VA Staffer Virtual Assistant Services, where J’s team uses his unique approach designed and built by proven Project Management best practices. 

It seems J and I are cut from the same cloth, I haven’t met anyone who thinks as much like I do until I met my brother from another mother here on this podcast...enjoy!

Are you grinding when you should be Pig Jiggin’?

Today’s episode deviates just a bit from our 4-Day Workweek theme this month because there’s barbecue in the air, and I’m bringing my good friend, Mr. Chris Whitney back on the podcast.  It's all about Pigs and the productive mindset and it's a good one.

76 - Leveraging Automation (with Katya Sarmiento)

Entrepreneurs are getting so hyper-productive they can take one day off each week...and it’s our job to figure out how they’re doing it. 

It’s my pleasure to introduce to you my guest, 4-Day Workweek entrepreneur and proponent of avoiding burnout and building a business that supports your lifestyle Katya Sarmiento.

75 - The Non-Stop Hustle (with Nico Snapp)

75 - The Non-Stop Hustle (with Nico Snapp)

75 episodes of The Make it Snappy Productivity Show!

I decided to do something I haven’t done in a long time: to keep this episode intimate.  It's just you and I, and my microphone. Well, I also had my baby boy Nico join the celebration but that’s just because he’s awesome!

It wasn’t anything fancy; no guests, no panels, not even Nazach.  I really wanted to just broadcast my message about how I feel about the non-stop hustle, along with my story of where I’ve been, and where I’m at today with the business.  I get a little raw and real this time and give you a peak behind the curtain into what's been going on.

74 - Cognitive Science & The Fear of Impact (with Julia Vorontsova)

“Trying to make yourself work a lot is actually a fear of doing something that can make more impact.” -Julia Vorontsova

If this quote from my guest today doesn’t hit you between the eyes I don’t know if anything will! I’m pleased to present to an amazing entrepreneur by the name of Julia Vorontsova of Kakadu Media.

With a background in cognitive science and language learning, she learned how to teach students Mandarin Chinese in record time, through advertising...Julia's an innovative thinker and focuses her efforts on the right things: family first.

72 - The 4-Day Workweek (with Nazach Snapp)

72 - The 4-Day Workweek (with Nazach Snapp)

I’ve been fascinated by the concept of deliberately working only four days per week and I’ve been talking a lot about it lately.

You may have listened my rather vulnerable coaching conversation with my coach, Greg Faxon, two episodes ago on #70, where we hashed out this idea of Taking Friday’s off..

Since then I’ve made the executive decision to focus this entire month on entrepreneurs who are committed to working to a 4-Day Workweek, and who’ve actually pulled it off themselves.
