#32. Email is Evil, Accidental Entrepreneurship, and Breaking Bad Habits with Jeremy Nagel (Founder of focus bear‪)‬ The Playhard Podcast

    • Entrepreneurship

Jeremy Nagel has a bad bad habit — he checks his email first thing in the morning.

The man can't stop. He tried everything from app/site blockers to having his wife slap him in the face every morning he was on email. It didn't work.

So, he created focusbear.io: the ultimate focus and habit-tracking app.

In this episode, we go over Jeremy's 3 companies and the 1 he sold earlier this year. We talk about good habits and focus tactics. Finally, we talk about why you should avoid email in the morning.

This episode is great if you’re interested in: focus strategies, morning routines, running multiple companies at once, ADHD, prioritization, and cross-country skiing.

Show Notes:

(13:13) - Entrepreneurship wasn’t the original path

(24:09) - How to track and organize 3 different companies

(30:44) - Emails are evil in the morning

(38:44) - Connecting to your heritage with hobbies
