    It's incredible how much time we can save with the simple act of repurposing: using existing content, templates, outlines, images, and tools. Tune in to hear exactly how I make it happen!

    Stop Thinking "All or Nothing"

    "Too often, we fall into an all-or-nothing cycle with our habits.
    The problem is not slipping up; the problem is thinking that if you can’t do something perfectly, then you shouldn’t do it at all." - James Clear

Get the productivity help you didn't know you needed

This podcast has literally changed my life. As an solo entrepreneur, I was at the point where my time-management skills had become a major bottleneck. I had read a zillion time-management and productivity books, and none of them gave me what I needed to successfully IMPLEMENT. Kate Erickson's podcast worked!

Ditch Busy presents a whole, organized APPROACH to time management, optimizing and streamlining your workflows, reducing the time tasks take, figuring out what has priority and doing that, ditching or backburnering not-priority-now tasks, and staying sane through the whole process. Most important, you learn how to THINK ABOUT time management so it makes sense and you can make it work for you.

Kate has a friendly, accessible style… is great at breaking down time management tasks, workflows, and concepts into bite-size chunks that are easy to implement… and explains WHY the pieces work in a super-clear way that made a bunch of time-management tips I’d been reading about for years finally make sense.

I’m now repeating the entire series and implementing even more of Kate's wisdom. Pure gold!

The podcast I didn't know I needed

I tend to think I'm a fairly efficient person. However, when I listen to Ditch Busy, I learn something every time. I love Kate's do-able and realistic approach to productivity. Do yourself a favor and subscribe!

Always on point!

I have been listening to Kate for years....I loved Kate’s Take and moved over to listening to Ditch Busy when she started this podcast. She always shares stories, tips and ideas that are practical and relevant. A must listen if you want to be successful on your journey too!
