Just 30 Minutes


Do you have 30 minutes today to start building a pitch for a company?

You don't? Really? How much time you gonna scroll on news feed?

Take control of your time and attention. Time is valuable like silver. Attention is valuable like gold.

Concentrate your mind and deliver 30 minutes of real results.

Productivity = time spent X intensity of focus.


Overcome the fear of standing out


Maybe you want to be creative and stand out to get a job, but something inside of yourself is stopping you.

That's what's called the Lizard Brain, the back part of the brain that makes you feel fear of being different than the tribe.

It's time to move beyond that. The great Seth Godin breaks it down in this 90 second video. (Spoiler: Seth is afraid every day, too).
