In Episode 29 of The Side Hustle Show, Timo Kiander of ProductiveSuperdad.com shares his top 6 productivity hacks for side hustlers to maximize their time and output.

We also get into a fun discussion about managing email, something I definitely have an unhealthy addiction to.

This conversation is built on years of experience and research, as well as the habits of top-performing online entrepreneurs.

In fact, Timo is the perfect guy to discuss this with since he literally wrote the book on the subject. Online Business Productivity: How to Start a Productive Online Business and Get Sh*t Done – Even When You Are Working 9-5! is now available on Amazon.

I was given an advance copy for review, and can say it was a quick, fun, and inspirational read. It’s actually a series of 18 short chapters, each from a different well-known online business personality — many of whom got their start as side hustlers.
