Greg Price brings you another tip from the PKF Entrepreneur's Playbook, this time focusing on creating strategic alliances to help your business in today's age of global business.
Erica O'Grady takes us on the road for a talk with the Indiana Jones of the Digital Age, Timothy Ferriss, author of New York Times and Wall Street Journal best seller The Four Hour Work Week. Tim shares how he cut his management time from 60 hours per week down to 2 (he only checks email for 2 hours a week on Mondays!) and that income has no practical output if you don't control your time. Asking empowering questions of yourself helps you define your outcome and shows you there may be more than 2 options.
In the second part of Erica's interview with Timothy Ferriss, we hear about Timothy's 15 month sabbatical with no itinerary. The people he met along the way all contributed to his new outlook on productivity versus busy-ness. We hear how the most effective, competitive companies are changing to a results-based work environment. Adjusting his life to this work ethic has allowed Tim the time to become a Guinness Book of World Records holder and the first American to represent Buenos Aires in the World Tango Championship.
