TMBA 660: Five Easy Ways to Work Smarter (Not Harder)

Podcast 40:54 | Download | Spotify| Stitcher | iTunes | Comment

Who doesn’t want to maximize results, and spend less time – or just make better use of it – in their business? On this week’s show Dan and Ian discuss five possible ways to make this happen from their own experience growing Dynamite Jobs.

They include reaching out to an expert practitioner in your field, someone who has experience and insight at the level you want to grow to, creating tight ‘backward looking’ financial accountability that gives clarity on where your money is, and should be going. And there’s more, of course. It wouldn’t be a TMBA episode without five points. It’s the law.

‘We’ve reached out to several industry experts in the job space. And I think some relationships are going to come out of that … And I think the most valuable thing that’s starting to change for us, it’s just the product roadmap. So if you can identify somebody that’s an industry expert in your field, a lot of times they can shave years off your product development cycle.”

Listen to this week’s show and learn:

  • Why reaching out to an industry expert in your space could be so helpful
  • ‘Scaling Up’ by Vern Harnish v ‘Traction’ by Gino Wickman
  • Choosing where to have a ‘work vacation’
  • The power of a system to get inside your business financials
