We've got two very different guests joining us on today's episode to talk about productivity and workflow: Jessica Rafter, who works remotely managing our online community, and Mara Hilliar, Executive Assistant to the VP of Finance. Together we work through strategies we've adopted to keep ourselves organized and productive: what's worked, modifications we've made, and ideas we'd like to try. The key thing we've learned? Experiment with different strategies until you find something that feels comfortable! There are lots of ideas in this pod, and we hope some of them will work for you!
