Marketing Podcast with Laura Vanderkam
Podcast Transcript

Laura VanderkamToday on the Duct Tape Marketing Podcast, I visit with Laura Vanderkam. She is the author of several time-management and productivity books, including her latest, Juliet’s School of Possibilities: A Little Story About the Power of Priorities.

Vanderkam is the author of several other time-management and productivity books, including Off the Clock: Feel Less Busy By Getting More Done (which she discussed on a previous Duct Tape Marketing Podcast episode!), I Know How She Does It, and What the Most Successful People Do Before Breakfast.

She has contributed to numerous publications, including the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, Fast Company, and Fortune. She also hosts the podcast Before Breakfast, featuring a new episode each weekday.

Questions I ask Laura Vanderkam:

  • What do the most productive people do before breakfast?
  • How do we make sure that we’re getting the most out of our leisure time?
  • How have you been successful in getting people to track their time?

What you’ll learn if you give a listen:

  • Why most of us don’t have any idea how we spend our time each day, and how to get more mindful about managing our time.
  • Why we should be as intentional in planning our leisure time as we are in managing our business priorities.
  • How we can best work on planning out our time, and when to take the time to do it.
