It’s been a while since we shared some inspirations, so here goes – what we are loving this month, March 2016…food for your mind, soul, growth and productivity.
Book: Revenue Growth Habit
We’ve been reading Alex Goldfayn’s blog for years. Goldfayn presents a no-nonsense, simple formula for building your customer base and revenue. Revenue Growth Habit takes a bit more time than a blog post can, digging more into the details.

No doubt that we’re focused on squeezing more juice from our lemons. We’ve stopped multi-tasking to build more websites, do more marketing, write more blogs. One of the smartest tools in that paradigm shift was Productivity Planner, a new daily organizer from the folks who brought us Five Minute Journal (we’re on year two of that!). Productivity Planner came from a super-successful Kickstarter campaign, well worth the investment. Smart.
