Work Less and Get More Done: The Keys to Conscious Productivity with Dr. Bryan Robinson & Natalie Sisson

Original Air Date Wednesday, January 16, 2019 

How many people have gone to their deathbed wishing they would have worked more and spent less time doing things they enjoyed? It’s probably safe to assume, not many people. So, why is it a common practice to reply to questions with “I’ve been busy”, “I haven’t had the time”, or “I can’t, I have to work”? Why do we voluntarily restrict our personal freedom for our work? Host, Lisa Cypers Kamen speaks with two influencers who found ways to enjoy life more by injecting mindfulness and productivity into their work. Dr. Bryan Robinson describes his time as a workaholic and how he turned his life around when he set boundaries for himself.  And, Natalie Sisson tells how she created her business, The Suitcase Entrepreneur, to run efficiently without her.
