Planning and Productivity with Erin Elizabeth Wells

April 14, 2021 | ,

Should you eliminate the word “goal” from your vocabulary? This idea may sound a little outlandish or may come as a surprise to you but as you’ll learn from my guest in this episode, it could be a gamechanger in your goal-setting practices.

In this episode, I had the pleasure of speaking with Erin Elizabeth Wells. I met Erin through a mutual online connection and I resonated so much with what I was learning in her course that I knew I had to invite her to share her incredible insights with you.

We explore her career from her first business in professional organizing to making the transition into the productivity space. Erin gets into the unique challenges that location-independent workers and entrepreneurs have when it comes to goals and organizing, and how her approach is just as relevant to your personal lifestyle goals as your business/career goals. If you want to step up your productivity as a digital nomad, this episode is just for you!
