Episode 165: Time Blocking for Rapid Business Growth | with Matthew Pollard

Do you ever feel like you’re putting in a lot of hard work to achieve extraordinary results in your business or in you role, day in and day out, but you just aren’t going anywhere?

We all have the same 24 hours in a day, yet some people get different results – and it all comes down to how you manage your time. If you’re acting entrepreneurially, constantly relying on your natural ability, taking action, making mistakes, and tweaking things, you’re going to run up against a ceiling of achievement. But you have an opportunity to get purposeful – to identify a model and system for achieving extraordinary results.

To help us leverage that opportunity, we’re talking to someone who is responsible for five multi-million dollar business success stories in his home country of Australia, all before the age of 30. His humble beginnings, the adversities that he faced, and his rise to success are inspirational stories of how anyone, with the right motivation and the right strategies, can achieve anything they set their mind to – including rapid business growth. Our guest is the bestselling author of The Introvert’s Edge, Matthew Pollard.

Want to look smart for a great price?

Back when Gary Keller and Jay Papasan started writing The ONE Thing, they asked, “What do we stand for?” They decided that, whatever they created, the bar for quality would be exceptionally high and whoever invested in it would receive incredible value. We still have that standard in our business, and we are always looking for other companies doing the same thing. In our search, we came across Beckett Simonon, a direct-to-consumer brand changing the way premium men’s shoes, bags, and belts are offered.

If you want hand-crafted, quality shoes and accessories made with integrity, use the code TOT for 20% off the already great prices at beckettshoes.com.
