TimeCamp Podcast Interview: Stay On Top Of Your Work!

Earlier this year in May, Timecamp conducted a written interview exploring how I organize my projects, use timecamp, and tips for entrepreneurs. You can read it here.

Today, I'm happy to announce Timecamp invited me back for an audio interview on their podcast, Stay On Top Of Your Work. In this interview terrifically conducted by Kata Kurzawska, I share my story, talk about freelancing, Path of the Freelancer, how I use Timecamp, interesting books, motivation, other useful tools, and how I stay on top of my work. It's 35 minutes of helpful insights to help you grow you and your business.

Reviewing The Top Performing Blog Posts Via Organic Traffic

With my escalating blogging goal (to reach 400 posts by year's end) nearby, I've surveyed the archives to discover which articles are performing well with the search engines. 

My first high performing blog post took about ten months to gain traction, so I suspect the landscape will change greatly over the next year as the over 200 articles I've written in the previous fourteen months will find their place on the search engines. To maximize my existing library, I'll also need to go back to many of the articles not performing and complete focused updates to get them on track.

In the meantime, I'm keeping a close eye on the break-out pages gaining momentum and listed below.

Instead Of Micro Managing, Leverage A Visibility System That Includes Communication And Action Management

As a business owner, you want to control what happens, how it happens, and when it happens. And, justifiably so. Your lively hood and the success of so many individuals is dependent on a business reliably producing value for its customers. 

But, many small business owners take this too far when they remove their team’s agency and dictate to employees exactly how to do their job. While they may feel and be justified in their doing so, micro-managing this way removes the mind of the team members and turns them into robots. 

Explore two ways you can combat your tendency to micro manage

There was a seismic shift last month and out popped our fifth child, Zoe Rene Montoya. You can get the wonderful details and see more beautiful photos here.

My generous mother was here to help out around the house and with our other kids so the transition was fairly mild (especially compared to the last two).

Thanks to The Painted Frog Studio, I was able to commission my mom a personalized gift made in her image (to match the one I had made for my dad a few months back).

Financial Survivalism: Moving Past Persistent Challenges & Embracing Sustainability

Why do we resist the responsibility that leads to sustainability?

Because it's hard. Embracing responsibility requires setting aside the short-term benefit for the long-term gain. But it's not easy, even when we've fully committed. In fact, it can feel quite like we're being relentlessly hunted.

Three Ways Your Small Business Can Build Out A Marketing Department

Marketing is a reflection of your organization's identity, beliefs, and offerings. Knowing and sustaining a consistent and compelling message to effectively communicate your brand is vitally important for long-term and efficient success. While sales can move the needle today, marketing will remove friction in doing business tomorrow. 

Many companies excel in marketing but fail to deliver on their promises, while others neglect marketing but go above and beyond for their customers. While this tends to be more of a spectrum than one or the other, if you lean towards strong operations and weak marketing, it's time to seriously explore bolstering up your digital growth efforts and there are three major options available to you.

For To Us To Receive Freedom, We Must First Embrace The Risk

All of us want freedom. But, only a few of us are willing to accept the associated risk and responsibility that inherently comes with it. 

Freedom allows us to do what we want when we want, and how we want (to the degree contained by our limitations). This concept is especially ingrained in Americans whose identity is built on life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. 

Explore how embracing the risk gives us freedom opportunities
