Lots of great nuggets and inspiration!

Whenever I need a good dose of motivation or focus I select an episode from Tonya's Productivity Paradox podcast and head out for a walk. I use it like a warm-up for exercise, but it's a warm-up for my most productive work.

Even though much of what she shares is information I've heard before, let's be honest there isn't much new content, but somehow the way that she shares this information, infused with tangible examples, helps me to figure out how to implement methods and change my habits to become more productive.

I'm just at the beginning of my own entrepreneurial adventure and this podcast has been instrumental in helping me to spring to action instead of continuing to sit and dream about "someday". If you also want a jump start on your dreams, you'll want to give it a listen. Start with an episode title that speaks to you and go from there.

What everyone needs!

This podcast has been my sidekick on my drives to and from work. I can really focus on listening and letting all of Tonya's tips really sink in! I look forward to my drives now! Also, the Inkwell Press planners are absolutely amazing! So beautiful and life changing, the planners and Tonya! :)

Meh

I’m sure there’s a lot of good content here, just can’t get past the the fake reading of a script. If it were more of her just talking that would be great.
