I run my business from my laptop, this means it’s easy to get side tracked with the likes of YouTube, Facebook and other platforms. As hiring a slapper on Craigslist is not an option, I normally resort to making the procrastination more productive by watching a few TED talks.
As an online entrepreneur it’s easy to get swept into the daily grind of working and maintaining your business, this can wear you out.
It’s important to stay on the ball, so next time you find yourself lacking motivation, get boosted by watching these TED talk’s.
These are sure to get your secret sauce flowing again, and back into productive beast mode in no time!
