    EP166: Jason Portnoy: Organize Your Day For Maximum Success

    EP166: Jason Portnoy: Organize Your Day For Maximum Success

    Entrepreneurs are not always in control of their time. Often times our calendars are a mess and end up ruling (and destroying!) us. I was guilty of not focusing my time the way it should be. Maybe you're having this issue too... But between managing my businesses, my time… it just got chaotic…  Until I met someone (Hi Oli!) a little over a year ago who showed me a better way. He taught me the power of the 4 P’s and it truly SAVED ME.  Since implementing it, productivity shot up, and results followed. It truly is a better way and I feel this could really help more people… I wanted to show you the method I learned (and now teach in my group) that changed everything for me. Hope you enjoy it and find it useful.
