I found Paul Minors on YouTube when I started my job in March 2019. I had to become experienced in PipeDrive very quickly. I found his videos very helpful. I have started watching his other videos and listening to podcast. So far, I have enjoyed them.

Rank #1: PMP #156: How my consulting business has changed in the last 3 years

Podcast cover
Read more

This month marks 3 years since I left my full-time job to work exclusively on my own business. I can’t believe how fast the time has flown by and how much has changed in the last few years.


I feel so privileged to be able to do what I do and I want to start by thanking you, dear reader (or listener), for allowing me to do what I do.


My goal has always been to run my own “lifestyle business” that gives me the freedom to work on my terms. And I love sharing what I’ve learned so that I can help others to do the same.


This is why I created my How to become a “virtual consultant” program a few years ago. It’s the one place that summarises everything I’ve learned about consulting and exactly how I operate so you can copy my process. Last month, I released an update to the program with some new lessons outlining the things I’m doing differently.


Today, I’d like to summarise some of the things I’ve changed to improve my efficiency and the value I deliver to clients.

It’s that time of year again, 2017 is upon is and everyone’s thinking about their goals and resolutions for the year. And I’m no different…

I’ve decided on three simple things I’d like to do this year. At this point, I’d like to point out, these are things I’ve spent time on in the past, but have had trouble sustaining over the long run. This year, my goal isn’t so much to try these things (as I’ve done them all before) but to practice each of them on a regular basis.

Rank #7: TPP #71: How to create "focussed work" conditions

Podcast cover
Read more
Dealing with distractions is one of the most common issues I hear people talk about when it comes to productivity. Especially if you work in an office environment, you’re almost guaranteed to have your work disrupted by someone or something in the office hijacking your attention. On top of that, finding time to focus in between meetings, phone calls, email exchanges, instant messages and other distractions is almost impossible.

In this episode, I look at advice from best-selling authors on how to created "focussed work" conditions.

Rank #9: PMP #116: How to overcome self-doubt

Podcast cover
Read more
Self-doubt is a feeling everyone can relate to. Whether you’re worried about an upcoming exam, a project at work, an important client or even things going on in your personal life, we often doubt ourselves and our abilities.

Even the most “successful” people in the world (whatever that means) feel self-doubt. Also known as imposter syndrome, this is the fear that you’re not as good as people think you are.

In this episode, I’d like to share some stories and tips that have helped me to overcome self-doubt.

The headline of this post is meant to be ironic because here’s the secret - there is no secret. There’s no silver bullet that’s going to solve all your problems. There is no #1 tip I can give you. Sorry to burst your bubble.

Next year, if you want to be more productive, more organised, to start or grow a business, all you need to do is to sit down and do the work. Stop looking for secrets and 'hacks'. Instead, focus on shopping up each and every day to put in the work!

We create to-do lists with the best of intentions; to plan our work so we can be more productive. But if we’re not careful, a task list can quickly become bloated, messy and overwhelming, making us feel guilty and less productive than before.

As I’ve worked with more and more clients to help them with Asana, I’ve noticed some common task management mistakes coming up again and again. Here are the most common mistakes I see people make and how to avoid them…
