This post will share 2 non-negotiable truths about time, my 3 favorite productivity hacks, and how to arrest the 9 biggest time thieves in your life to free up an extra 14 hours a week.

My Home Office and Hardware Setup

Or in blogger speak, “The 10 Tools I Used to Build a 6-Figure Business.”

I’ve been getting a few questions about my current home office set up, so I thought I’d put together a quick post about it here.

While I’m blessed to be able to work from anywhere, I find I’m most productive at home. I’ve been working from home full-time for more than 8 years, so there’s definitely some comfort there.

It’s time to dive into the ol’ listener mailbag and answer a few questions in this week’s edition of The Side Hustle Show.

It’s been a few months since the last Q&A show I did and I’ve had quite a few interesting questions come in since then. I picked 20 to talk through in today’s show.

212: Micro Habits: The Too-Small-to-Fail Plan for Big Results

“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.”

That line from Aristotle may be one of the most overused quotes in history.

But it’s overused for good reason: it’s a good quote. At least the first part. Aristotle was onto something for sure: we are what we repeatedly do. I agree with that 100%.

The issue I have is with the second part: Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.
