TIP OF THE WEEK
Scott: Check out the app BetterSnapTool on the Mac App Store. It’s an app that allows you to easily manage your window positions and sizes. You can setup predetermined shortcuts that will easily move your window on a certain spot.
Mike: Read the book, The Go-Giver. A Little Story about a Powerful Business Idea by Bob Burg and John David Mann. It’s a powerful book because when you do what the author suggests, it feels right. There’s a way that you can run your business and run your life that makes you feel like you’re doing it on your terms and you’re not violating anybody else’s.
Isn’t it time to create passive income so you can work where you want, when you want and with whomever you want?
