  • Your comment about travel being a destabilizing factor struck a chord with me. I’m self-employed in the ecommerce space. I spend at least of a third of my days away from home and office. As much as I enjoy the spontaneity, flexibility and freedom of the entrepreneurial lifestyle, I struggle to follow through and complete complex projects because of the lack of stability from a routine schedule.

    I’ve recently hired a full-time VA to handle my non-critical routine tasks. We’re still in the training mode, but already I’m feeling a lift from the burden of having to play “catch-up” when I arrive home from travel. The new challenge here is letting go of managing and control of these tasks that I have delegated to the VA.

    • Staying at home for a while can power up a significant routine productivity

      • Very true, and I wish I stayed home more. I have to remind myself that I’m living the life I dreamed of. It was truly my past intention to travel like I am now, but the reality doesn’t quite match up!

        I’ve now listened to a couple of other TAG’s… apparently you really have your team dialed in. A great future topic for you and Ezra might be: Delegation, managing others and letting go of control.

  • Guys: REALLY, really miss this podcast! Ezra, you alive? LOL
