Watch My Podcast Presentation as one of Smead’s Guest Expert’s on “Crazy Busy”
Written by Lisa Montanaro | February 19, 2015

I had a blast in my interview as a guest expert for Smead’s podcast series! My topic was “Crazy Busy” is Not A Badge of Honor” and I discussed why we shouldn’t be proud of the fact we are so busy.

Watch this quick 20-minute presentation where I addressed:

  • Why people are so proud of being “busy”
  • A new movement of Life, Work, Balance
  • Looking at your calendar with a fresh eye
  • Replacing the negative language with positive
  • Taking control of your schedule
  • My favorite apps for managing time
  • The idea of the “unschedule”!
  • And more!

I love partnering with Smead and enjoyed the discussion about Smead products with John (my interviewer).


Meet the Author

Helping others be the best versions of themselves gets me jazzed!

I’ve worn many hats in my lifetime—often at the same time—while enjoying fulfilling careers. I’ve been a performer, teacher, sign language instructor, lawyer, career counselor, law professor, coach, consultant, mediator, entrepreneur, speaker, trainer, writer, and author. 

I’m an eternal optimist and life-long learner, constantly researching ways to improve personal and professional effectiveness. And it brings me great joy to then pass on the results of that persistent curiosity to my clients and audiences. 

Of all the career hats I’ve been privileged to wear, my favorite is owner of this business since 2002. Why? Because it provides me the opportunity to work with wonderful organizational and individual clients. On any given day, I get to connect deeply with audiences, work with dedicated teams, improve workplaces, watch clients have a-ha moments, and know I’ve made a difference in their lives and careers. And that is very satisfying.
