She’s the host of the Hurry Slowly podcast — a new show about how you can be more productive, creative, and resilient by slowing down. She also write books that will help you reclaim your time in “the age of distraction”, and gives talks about how we can spend less time on “fake productivity” and more time on work that actually matters.

We’re two weeks in 2018, and New Year’s resolutions involving fitness and health goals are top of mind. That’s why it’s the perfect time to interview Natalie Jill – a licensed Master sports nutritionist and functional fitness trainer. Natalie’s entire mission is to help people to decide to take control of their body, mind, business and lives, and she shares the tools to do so on her website.
Mel Robbins is quite simply a powerhouse of productivity. She’s many things – a best-selling author, the most booked female speaker, the CEO of a media and speaking company, a CNN legal analyst – AND a mother of 3.
Zack Onisko has made a career out of designing products for fast-growing startups. He started out as a designer working in Silicon Valley after the dot-com bubble burst, and made his way up the ranks, pivoting his career to managing growth teams. He’s since worked as head of growth at notable startups such as Creative Market, Branchout, and Hired.
This week on the #ProductivityGiants series we’re featuring Adam Braun – a New York Times best-selling author and CEO and Co-Founder of MissionU, a 21st century college alternative that allows students to graduate debt-free.
