Whether you consider it a routine, a ritual, or simply your daily habits, having something you follow every day is incredibly important.
In fact, knowing what my day looks like - every day - directly contributes to the amount of work I'm able to get done and the focus I'm able to give projects and tasks.
In this episode I share what my daily ritual is and talk about the importance of why I choose certain habits over others.

Creating systems and processes in your business isn't always as cut and dry as following 3 simple steps. Sometimes things come up in your business that you haven't prepared for - that you may have never expected to be creating a system or process around.
That was certainly the case for us when it came to setting up a system around following up (and recovering) missed payments for Podcasters' Paradise.
In this episode I walk through how we did it, and how you can approach similar situations in your business.
