NoiseHush Clip-on Bluetooth

My learning library is overflowing with videos, audios, audiobooks and more. The need to consume knowledge is real but who has time to sit around to watch and listen? It’s no secret. I leverage my workout time to gain back hours of my day. I’m still doing it. This is how I consume¬†Coach Glue’s Sticky Passive Income course. It’s worked very well.

Do you use text in your business at all? Do you communicate with staff or even customers with it? YesNo
