Today’s episode is a new format we’re experimenting with. We know many of you like listening to podcasts to learn new things and also to stay on top of what’s happening in the world. So we thought it would be helpful to also share some industry news on the podcast so you’re always up to date with the latest news around productivity apps, tools, books, and everything else in between.
Aside from the industry news, we also have 3 important topics to go over:
Are you a jerk if you send someone your Calendly link?
Do you still have to pay for a text expander type of app anymore?
Is TikTok worthwhile for learning new skills?
