There are a lot of changes happening in the world right now with people working from home and companies going remote, and that’s why today’s episode is all about how to have streamlined and effective communication. Here to help me discuss this topic is Nick Sonnenberg, a serial entrepreneur with a passion for creating companies that disrupt the way people live. In addition to being a good friend of mine, Nick is also the co-founder of Leverage, founder and CEO of Efficient Frontier Solutions Inc, and co-author of the book Idea To Execution: How to Optimize, Automate, and Outsource Everything in Your Business. 

Listen in as Nick shares his mission to help busy entrepreneurs and executives optimize their lives in meaningful ways and help them streamline their idea execution into as few steps as possible. You’ll learn ways that you can save yourself hours every week, how to have streamlined and robust communication with your team, and how you can make your business more efficient and revenue-generating—even during a time of drastic upheaval.

In this episode, we cover topics such as:

  • How to manage and plan time for your revenue-generating activities.
  • What we can expect the “new normal” to look like.
  • How to avoid the “scavenger hunt” and other inefficiency problems.
  • Why analytics of key metrics are so important.
