I’m a walking productivity experiment.

I like to try new things and find new ways to increase my productivity. Then I bring you the results and let you decide whether or not to implement these things in your life.

I’ve been doing three new things that have really been working to make my life more productive and actually, all three of these are saving me money too.

These are kind of random, but brilliant and you won’t find these all over the internet like most tips. Here’s what I’ve been doing…

How to Actually Take Control of Your Finances

I remember when I didn’t have control of our family’s money. I remember it well…unfortunately. We were $24,000 in consumer debt. We had no emergency fund, no investments and no savings whatsoever. I had used most of my wife’s savings to buy a new drum set (because that’s what responsible husbands do, right?).

My wife had been through Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace course and honestly, she knew quite a bit more than I knew about money, especially managing it (well, and everything else related to money). She gave her input, but why would I listen? I was in my early 20s and I already had everything figured out. I didn’t need her input – I knew what I was doing. Yeah…

I’m not going to drown you in the tears of my past wrongdoings, but I am going to tell you why you need to take control, what happens if you don’t (from personal experience) and how to take control right now. Yes, today is the day that you will take control of your finances. Today is the day that you will change the course of your financial life. Sounds cheesy, right? Well sometimes the truth comes with a little cheese sprinkled on top, but seriously, you can change your financial future if you start today. Let’s do this…

The Turning Point: When Does a Mom & Pop Shop Turn Into an Evil Corporation?

What does Sam Walton and Colonel Sanders have in common?

They both started from scratch and turned a small business into a multi-million dollar enterprise.

I’m sure you’re familiar with Sam Walton’s Walmart, which is the world’s largest company in revenue, according to the Fortune Global 500. You’re probably also familiar with Harland Sanders, also known as Colonel Sanders, and his giant fast-food chain, Kentucky Fried Chicken. KFC actually ranks 2nd in sales among fast-food restaurants, only trailing behind McDonalds.

Here we have two companies with thousands of stores and millions in sales. Many would consider them among the ranks of other “evil corporations” that under-pay and simultaneously hurt the economy. You don’t have to go far to find an article about Walmart and how unfairly they treat their employees or about how they’re too big for their own (or anyone else’s) good.

So where is the line drawn? At what point do these small start-ups turn from being “just another business” to being corrupt, evil or too dominant?
