The Contractor vs. Employee: 20-Hour Work Weeks For Everyone!
I discuss the future of the workplace, how it is time for a shift to the 20-hour work week for not only contractors but employees. When you have more work-life balance, you are more productive and focused and achieve tasks much quicker. Businesses will not fail if their employees are working less... the opposite will happen.

Does Working 20 Hours Per Week Mean I'm Lazy?
In this short video, in between full episodes of Go Back To Bed, I discuss whether working 20 hours per week means you're lazy. Is it fair? Are you watching Netflix the other 140 hours?NO. I'm still working, but I'm working for my kids, my wife, my house, my community and other projects that matter. Don't compare your work schedule to other people and think it's unfair. They can work 20 hours per week too, if they want. You are giving yourself more time to contribute to society in other ways. Never feel guilt about that.
