Some of my best business lessons come from companies, mentors, and organizations that have nothing to do with this online world.

While sure – I can name names of people who’ve influenced my decisions, supported me along the way–my most game-changing lessons have been learned watching some of my favorite companies grow.

They are simply doing things that I love as a consumer and want to give that same feeling so that my own clients and customers like working with me!

Today, I want to talk about one company and three things I’m applying in my own business…

Information comes in so many forms — the content, the products, the outlines, the project plans, the tasks lists, your social media messages, your social media profiles, all the dang passwords you need to access all of your online homes.

Now some of this information doesn’t need to be accessed more than a few times. 

But others – well, you might need it over and over again.

And regardless of how often you access that recurring information, it’s a good idea to make sure it’s easy to find, use, and that you’ve got it in multiple places.

And what exactly can you launch each time?

Today’s episode is a totally new style and feature this podcast recorded in my kitchen while I paced back and forth speaking into my iPhone.

How To Stop Wasting Your Time Creating New Content


Got an online business that requires you to blog weekly or bi-weekly or more often? Maybe you have a podcast you publish several times a month.

You might be wondering how you can keep creating all this content and not literally go insane…but also miss out on actually promoting your business.

Before we dig into today’s episode, let me remind you that most likely your business is not to create content. If you’ve got a coaching practice, create info products, maybe you’re a speaker…then your main and primary job is to market those services to your ideal audience.

Spending all your time creating new blog posts, podcasts, and videos will only get your so far…yes, up the value scale for sure…but no, not converting people into actual customers.

So – today, I want to share the tools I’m using to make sure content creation is fast, effective, easy to do and get done…so I can get back to the real work of marketing and promotion.

Are you ready to stop wasting time too?
