12 Productivity Tools

Shoptalk Radio Ep. 93

I mentioned this on a previous episode, but it’s official: Nion Radio will be the new name of the show! We’ll be talking a lot about the same stuff we’ve always talking about here — creativity, life, business — but it’s going to really focus on creating your moments and living life in color. We’ll be making the switch on our 100th episode, which is coming up! We’ve been doing this podcast for two years now, and I really just wanted to thank you guys, the listeners, for keeping us going.

This episode is about digital productivity tools; Some of them are apps and some of them aren’t. I wanted to share them with you because they’ve made my life easier and more fun, and I hope that they can do the same for you.

“It helps me crunch and get some work done and helps me focus because we all know that sitting in front of a computer can be very distracting.”
