In this episode Nick Loper shares his book Work Smarter which provides entrepreneurs with over 350 online resources to increase productivity. This book is perfect for the entrepreneur in need of the best project management tools to help achieve goals faster and truly work smarter. The best part about the book is that these recommended tools come from over 500 successful people that use them today.
The difference is probably the breath and the curation. These are user tools recommended by top entrepreneurs and more than 500 people submitted contributions to the book.
I recommend that if there is a particular area of your business that you’re interested in you can skip to that section. There are 20 different categories so definitely feel free to jump around as needed.
There are so many in this book that I have used but ScheduleOnce is a favorite of mine.
The main idea behind this and why someone would want to invest the time to read it would be to essentially save yourself some time. It is 350 plus online resources today’s top entrepreneurs use to increase productivity and achieve their goals.

I was surprised with the ones that rose to the top, a couple that I have never even heard of. Sona is a project management software online that is free for up to 15 members of your team. Any small business that is just getting started can use this software and this was one of the most popular answers in the whole study we did. Another one was PicMonkey which is an online editing software. I am going through all these tools as well and testing them out for myself.
I am the chief side hustler at sidehustlenation.com where I get to experiment with a bunch of different part-time business opportunities trying to make money outside of your traditional 9-5 job and I help other people do the same. I have been running that for a little over a year, it’s been an absolute blast and so if you’re interested in trying to develop some job-free income streams of your own, come on over and join me.
The inspiration for me is the joy of discovery, that new tool that’s going to help you save even just five minutes a day.
