The Productivity Course
We talked a bit about my Essentials of Productivity course within Fizzle. It goes in deep on hard-fought tips like the ViNO method, the AAAC list and the CEO vs. Worker Bee stuff we mention in this episode.
I encourage you to checkout the course if you haven’t yet. If you’re not a Fizzler, this is just one of the loads of courses you get access to at your own pace. (And it only costs a buck to try out).
