158 - The MOST Productive Thing You Can Do (That No One Wants to Talk About)
It's finally here. All the productivity advice you've ever heard on Make it Snappy has been building up to THIS... It’s a CELEBRATION Snappy Nation!!! In case you haven’t heard, this is indeed the FINALE episode of The Make it Snappy Productivity Show and it’s a doozy. I’m going out with a SNAP! as we graduate from this particular platform to a new bold (somewhat terrifying) podcast. What to Expect from the Finale Today you’re going to get the best kept productivity secret ever known to man - and this is not even a remotely cliche statement. It has literally been a secret: I’ve been podcasting about productivity since Christmas of 2015 and I’ve never ever told you about this, and you’ve likely never made this connection… If you think about ALL the really good productivity stuff we’ve talked about through the years: morning rituals, time blocking, the ONE thing, the most PRODUCTIVE thing you could do, hands down, blows all the productivity advice you’ve ever heard out of the water. What's Next? We invite you to transition with us to a brand new podcast called Miracles & Atheists. In this finale episode you'll get all the gory details about the new show, it's history, and my "why" behind taking this risky step way outside my comfort zone.

157 - Creating Content that Gets Results (w/Adrian Shepherd)
Have you ever spent money on a course that overwhelmed you? Something that actually unmotivated you to do the thing you wanted to do? I’ve been thinking about why certain content resonates with me, and other content angers me. It’s interesting, this online game. My guest this episode, Adrian Shepherd, is the productivity guy I’ve always wanted to be. He practices what he preaches by applying simplicity to productive living. Adrian was born in England, he moved to the Philippines, then Thailand, then to the United States, then to Japan, then BACK to the USA, then BACK to Japan! He did all this traveling and moving around abroad because that’s the life he envisioned creating for he and his family. Adrian became an entrepreneur at the age of 26 with a mission to help people reach new levels of stunning achievement and unmatched excellence! Adrian wrote a book called iSucceed: Secrets for the Average Joe and Jane. This episode also puts out some really good information about Nick Snapp’s new podcast, coming out very soon, called “Miracles & Atheists.” Nick really breaks down this strange new project, including: Why in the world would I launch such a weird thing? What to expect from the new podcast. The benefits to Make it Snappy listeners (if they follow Nick to Miracles & Atheists). A big surprise! (you’ll have to listen for that one...)

Should I do the SEO thing, or meh 😑…?

153 - What's the Purpose, Really?
Sometimes you have the best intentions...yet, it still doesn’t work. This episode is about taking a hard look in the mirror, and making the tough decision to say no. The podcast has been up and down, branded and re-branded, an emotional roller coaster to say the least, and a ton of effort. So there comes a time where you have to be real with yourself, and your audience. That’s what Brook and Nick did on this episode of The Make it Snappy Experiment.

152 - Combining Tasks to Save Time or Nah...
