Umano App is History – Here’s some on-the-go Solutions

umano1-300x300It always seems to be that whenever I fall in love with an app, it makes serious changes, or gets bought out. Well  that curse has struck again!

Umano will be closing down on June 12th. I’ve been a huge fan of Umano since I discovered it.  The app gave me the chance to listen to articles I was interested in but didn’t have time to read while I was walking to the subway. I’ve also enjoyed recording my own posts, so I will be sad to see it go.

3 Keys To Growing a 6-Figure Business

SelenaAs I’ve been spreading the word about Listful Thinking through webinars, book signings and speaking events — I always get asked the same question.  “How did you do it?”

What they mean is how did I find the time to write a book and maintain my blog ListProducer.com while working full time as a TV producer.

The answer is I’ve gotten really good at time management and my lists help but that’s not the only thing.

For those of you who haven’t, it’s my friend Selena Soo’s course aimed at helping people expand their online businesses.  Selena started her business with a bang, launching her website with endorsements from people like Marie Forleo, Danielle LaPorte and editors from places like Oprah Magazine.

How To Work Through Challenges And Get Stuff Done

finishCan you imagine a day where you checked off everything on your to-do list without any problems or interruptions? Wouldn’t that be a nice change? But truthfully these days are quite rare. When we hit a roadblock it’s important to remember it happens to us all!

In fact problems are a normal part of the process. It’s all about how you deal with them.

Since I know these are my usual ways of ignoring a problem, I can recognize them and deal with them.

Make sure to pay attention to your own personal ‘tells’ so you can stop bad habits before they happen. If you are in denial, try writing a list of all the things you need to do to complete that day. You might surprise yourself and find that it’s easier than you think. [Read more…]
