Rudy Marsh joins us to talk about procrastination, the pomodoro method, and goal achievement. Rudy is the founder of the Esington company and creator of the Esington Glass, a beautiful Pomodoro timer that you can use to help you overcome procrastination and take action on your goals. Rudy grew up in a multi-ethnic family in North Texas and studied physics at the University of Texas at Dallas. Rudy joins us to talk about how he created the Esington Glass to help him in his own battle with procrastination, and he shares why he created the Esington Method to help make the Pomodoro Method stick in his own life.
In 2014, he introduced the Esington Glass that the Esington Method is based up to the world on Kickstarter, raising nearly $200,000 and backed by over 2,200 people. We share some of the lessons he’s learned from launching a successful Kickstarter campaign, and why Mike personally believes the Esington Timer is Pomodoro 2.0.
