One Percent Better: How little changes add up

WordCamp Los Angeles 2018. In this talk for freelancers and small business owners, I’ll talk about how committing to regular, tiny changes in your business can lead to big rewards and improvements over time. For the past four months, an accountability partner and I have been completing weekly challenges for our small businesses – and we’re both surprised at how big a difference these little habits and changes have made to our businesses and our lives – we both feel better, more in control, smarter, stronger, and just more generally amazing. In this talk, I’ll share our approach, how we come up with the challenges, and invite folks to join us!
