Why Sleep is THE Skill to Prioritize Now and in the Future with Mollie McGlocklin

  

        

Learn how to better manage 1/3 of your life (the time you sleep) to overcome burnout and create greater energy, focus, productivity, and results.

 

ABOUT MOLLIE

Mollie is the creator of Sleep Is A Skill, a company that optimizes how people sleep through a unique blend of technology, accountability, and behavioral change.

The company was born from “scratching her own itch” after a lifetime of poor sleep habits culminated into a mega-challenging bout of insomnia for months without end.

With a background in psychology & human behavior, she went down the rabbit hole to solve her own sleep disturbances without sleeping aids.

She became fascinated with chronobiology, and by extension, its practical applications to restore a state of homeostasis not only to her sleep but also to her life as a whole.

Knowing the difference between a life with sleep and without, she’s now dedicated her life to...

Half-Retire with Jim Muehlhausen

  

        

Discover how to break free from your business while keeping it running smoothly.

Jim and I discuss Half-Retirement, a process he teaches to help business owners find a middle ground between selling a business to completely retire and never retiring.

It's possible for business owners to delegate work they don't wish to do so they can focus on their "Picasso" work.

It's not quite an exit strategy, but it focuses on maximizing the business valuation to you and your lifestyle, rather than a random investor.

Like most entrepreneurs, Jim Muehlhausen has an eclectic background ranging from CPA, franchisee, attorney, business owner, consultant, franchisor, public speaker, university professor, and book author.

Have Less to Have More by Decluttering Your Balagan with Rebekah Saltzman

  

        

FREE UP MONEY, TIME & ENERGY BY BEING INTENTIONAL ABOUT WHAT YOU OWN (And What Owns You)

When we are not intentional about the things we own, we overspend... which requires us to work more (for something we might not even want).

The extra work requires extra energy (and has other opportunity costs), while other possessions require additional time investments to maintain them.

All this extra investment (or waste) of money, time, and energy can keep us from having time for our most important relationships and our most enjoyable activities.

Learn how you can better enjoy your things and your life by owning less and making sure the things you own are high quality and aligned with your priorities.
