Has helped increase my Productivity
Wow! this is exactly what I needed! Its hard sometimes to see that you are doing is really just wasting time. Whether its the decisions you make or the type of people you hang out with. All these things can play a factor in achevieing your goals. Its helpful for me to hear someone elses' perspective on being more efficient in life. We only have so much time here on earth so might as well try to maximize it to its fullest.
Michael's insights on efficiency are very relatable and easy to follow. I recommend this to anyone struggling with being efficient in the way they spend their time. I've wasted a lot of time on things that are't very important to me and wish would of had someone like Michael coaching me on how to be more efficient. Glad to have found this podcast!
Have listened to the first 6 episodes and so far, #6 is my favorite. Very good insights. Michael has taken many chances in life. He's failed at some and succeeded at most. I appreciate him sharing his advice and lessons learned. Keep 'em coming MA.
The best way to start my day!
I can't even believe how awesome these podcasts are! Michael Andrew has thought provoking New ideas that will get your brain excited to be alive. Too much of what people talk about today is regurgitiated information and so boring and void of any practical application. Michael hits your brain with jolts of inspiration and stirs your soul out of monotony. I find myself intruigued about so many topics i wasn’t even aware Existed! Maven Nation is a rubics cube for your brain, addictive and fun! I can’t wait to hear the next one! Thanks Michael Andrew!
