Today we're going to dive into boosting your productivity and efficiency. 


 Being Efficient Is Key

I know, it sounds cliché, but it’s true. If you're serious about your business, you have to strive for efficiency – especially if it isn’t your full-time job. I’m a huge advocate for being productive and efficient, and one way to achieve this is by being aware of your energy levels.

Recognize when you are most productive. Is it in the morning? Or maybe late at night? Either way, schedule your tasks where you need to be most efficient during these precious high-energy periods.

Use AI

Automation and Artificial Intelligence (AI) are your friends. They are incredibly useful in streamlining your podcasting process. Two favorites I recommend are Chat GPT and Descript.

Chat GPT is an AI tool I use frequently to brainstorm ideas, write emails, and even draft course structures. It's like having a digital brainstorming partner available 24/7.

Descript, on the other hand, is brilliant for video editing. It eliminates filler words, allows segment highlighting for removal, and even drafts transcriptions for your audio and video files, making it highly efficient for creating social media posts, emails, and blog posts.

Repurpose, Repurpose, Repurpose

Repurposing content is one of the best ways to be efficient online. Use your podcast content to create blog posts, emails, social media posts, or even the basis for an e-Book. Essentially, maximize the utility of your existing content, and save time on constantly producing new stuff.

 Get Your Priorities Right

Identify your most important tasks for each day. I usually pick my top three things to accomplish each day and try not to get swamped in a sea of smaller, unimportant tasks. It’s crucial to prioritize your work so that you remain focused, which leads to efficiency and productivity.

Stay Organized

Organization is paramount. I highly recommend Trello as it’s an excellent tool for managing your tasks and projects. It’s like your second brain that stores ideas, plans, and schedules. Find something that works for you and stick to it.


In a nutshell, efficiency in your business may seem like paddling upstream, but it doesn’t have to be. By adopting a few hacks, like understanding your energy levels, leveraging tools, and staying organized, you can make your journey much more enjoyable and less chaotic.

Remember, efficiency is not something achieved overnight, but with perseverance and the right strategies in place, I’m confident that you’ll nail it. Until then, keep creating and owning your magic!
