    So many insights and valuable tips that I’m going to watch it twice. Many Thanks. PS. 4:30am again??! Amazing stuff! I’ll get there slowly…

      yeah i can’t seem to stay asleep. last few days have been 6am-6:30am. much better for me.

        I’m now up at 4:30am each morning to start working! I may settle on 5am if it’s better after split testing.

        So quiet and peaceful at this time. No interruptions at all either!

          yeah it’s great. 4:30 is a bit early for me (although that’s what time i got up today). I prefer 6:30am.

    for going paperless, check out shoeboxed. they will send you an envelope. They then scan your documents, name them, you can then export them to a variety on online data software companies like evernote. for receipts, they put in the company name, date and amount. definitely check it out. its saved a ton of time for me, a real game changer.

      hey Ben, what’s the benefit of doing that over just scanning documents with my phone into Evernote as they come in?

      • http://www.benokumura.com Ben O

        You don’t have to spend time doing it. A few here and there adds up if it’s a lot of documents. I don’t know about you but I don’t want to spend time scanning things when you can send there and they’ll do 150 documents for $30. You can then focus on doing other things. Just import into Evernote or Dropbox and focus on life and business. I guess it’s just a matter of preference. I get a lot of paper. Lol

          turns I had scannable on my phone, just tried it out. its 100x better than other scanning apps. i got through 10 receipts in just a minute or so. can export or upload to evernote. gonna get rid of that service. Thanks Malan!

            haha told ya. i’ve used every other iPhone scanner app in the past and they all sucked. But scannable is magic. Glad you like it.
