211: Double Your Energy in 7 Days: How to Feel Your Best and Get More Done

Perhaps what we need isn’t more hours in the day, but more energy in our hours. That’s ultimately what this episode is about: feeling better and more alive so we can get more results from our businesses.

Yuri Elkaim is known as the “health whisperer” for being able to get to the heart of what matters and produce amazing health, weight loss, and fitness results where there seemed little hope.

Yuri is a former professional soccer player, a Registered Holistic Nutritionist, the author of The All-Day Energy Diet.

197: Prioritization, Elimination, Automation, and Delegation for Side Hustle Nation: A Productivity Roundtable

This week’s episode was something a little different as I was joined by three of my favorite productivity podcasters, Erik Fisher, Mike Vardy, and Paul Minors.

Combined they have more than 300 productivity-themed podcasts under their belts and represent 3 different countries!

Since getting the most out of our limited time is a ongoing struggle for side hustlers, I invited them on the show for a unique roundtable format to see what’s working today and what wisdom we can glean from their archives.

The 30-Day Meditation Challenge: Am I 10% Happier?

In August I embarked on a personal challenge to develop a meditation habit. If I could do it every day for a month, maybe it would (finally) become a routine practice.

Inspiration for the challenge came from a conversation with Dan Harris, an Emmy award-winning journalist who discovered meditation as an effective way to calm the voices in his head.

Dan convinced me to give it another shot, citing scientific evidence that meditation has a whole host of benefits including lower blood pressure and increased focus. So I committed to meditating every day in August, and I recruited 47 side hustlers to join me for accountability.

My Hustle Put Me in the Hospital. I Left With This Productivity Hack

Since my “ONE thing” was to blow the lid off my freelance business income, I had to muster the will-power and follow the to-do lists to make it happen.

Fast forward through 3 months of 12+ hour workdays (7 days a week nonstop) — I’ve collapsed in the ER, my head feels like scrambled eggs (extra crispy), and partial paralysis is setting in.

The nurse squeezes my hand before an emergency CT scan and whispers into my ear, “Don’t worry, sir. We’re not gonna let you die.”

500 Days of Cold Showers (Plus 14 Listeners Share Their Experience)

Yesterday marked 500 days since my last warm shower.

When Nick Reese challenged me to start taking cold showers last March, my initial reaction (and you can hear this on the podcast), was “that sounds horrible.”

But since I’m all about different experiments, I figured I’d give it a shot for a month and see what happens. And the weird thing is, some good things started happening (over 25 comments on this original post).

123: Time Hacking for Side Hustlers: How to Get More Hours, Clarity, and Results

If you’re looking for ways to squeeze more out of your limited side hustle hours, this is the episode for you. I’m excited to introduce Julie Sheranosher, host of the Time Hackers podcast.

Julie and I met at World Domination Summit in 2013 — she flew in all the way from Israel — and she is one of my favorite people and true time management pro.

I feel like my productivity has improved over the years, but I’m always learning about new systems and “hacks” to test out. One of those hacks was simply writing down my top 3 priorities for the next day the night before.
