Over the weekend I visited a local hardware store to enquire about purchasing a line trimmer. This is the second time I've been to the store in the last month or so and on both occasions, I left disappointed without making a purchase. I’ve talked to two salespeople now and neither one had enough product knowledge to make a clear recommendation that…

I’ve shared previously on this blog that my primary motivation right now (as it has been for years) is to make my business more efficient. Since reading Dan Martell’s book, Buy Back Your Time (affiliate link), I’ve shifted my mindset to focus more on teaching my team as much as I can in order to improve our overall efficiency.

Almost all of the Pipedrive and Asana clients we work with tell us the same thing - “We’re not getting as much as we can out of the tool”. A big part of getting more out of the tool is learning how to use the tool itself. But an often overlooked aspect is making sure you're inputting good data and keeping it up to date. This is the whole ‘Quality I…

Historically, I’ve closed out each year by sharing a summary of how I spent my time that year but this year I thought I’d do something different.

A productivity principle I’ve been following for years now is to always identify my ‘next action’ related to the projects and clients I’m working on. This is something I discussed in episode 243 of my podcast which I’d like to revisit as it’s such a simple, yet powerful concept that can really help you to be more organised. The concept of a ‘next a…

Today, I wanted to share a story that illustrates exactly why you shouldn't put all your eggs into one basket. Especially when it comes to your income. Either as a business owner or a salaried employee, don't put all your eggs in one basket. Meaning, don't get all of your income from one source. You never know when something may happen and the rug …

In December 2022, I was approached by a company interested in acquiring the Pipedrive consulting arm of my business.

I often get asked about the services I use to accept payments online for my products and consulting support. In this post, I’m going to break everything down (so I can refer people later on).

You’ve probably heard of the 80/20 principle before. If you haven’t, you’ve probably heard the general concept. The 80/20 principle (officially known as the Pareto Principle) says that 80% of consequences come from 20% of causes. The general idea is that 80% of outcomes come from just 20% of inputs; by identifying the correct 20% and optimising the…

An area of productivity and efficiency that I like to optimise, which I feel not enough people focus on is: high-volume, micro improvements. In other words, optimising small tasks that you do all the time which adds up to big improvements in efficiency. I’m going to share some examples of things we all do every single day, and if you can do these t…

Documenting your processes not only helps to improve your efficiency but it’s necessary if you ever plan to scale your business.

And you’re less likely to miss an important step that cou…

If you’ve ever heard the story or seen the Tom Hanks movie about Apollo 13, you may remember that the crew almost didn’t make it. After a routine procedure led to the explosion of one of the ship's oxygen tanks, the crew had to shut down almost all systems on the ship in order to preserve power which they would need to reenter the earth's atmospher…

One of the most important contributing factors to a successful client engagement is how you manage expectations. When you’re just getting started in the consulting or freelancing world, it’s tempting to tell the client what they want to hear in order to win a job.

Since 2015, the bulk of my company's revenue has come from consulting services and fees earned as a software partner.
