Last October, I launched the Guided Goals Podcast on Write On’s companion site GuidedGoals.com. The podcast is a series of expert interviews, designed to help people pursue their passion projects. Each episode wraps with action items (recommended goals), so listeners can take what they heard, and move forward right away. Watch on YouTube, listen, and subscribe on iTunes, or listen on Stitcher. I will be launching the Guided Goals’ newsletter soon. Please sign up and receive “5 Ways to Improve Your Productivity.”
