Intentional Productivity Resources:
As August is all about abundance, this tip is not necessarily related to productivity. However, it is a good one, if I do say so myself. What am I on about? Micro investment. I have recently started with a micro investment app named Peaks, but I assume that there are local equivalents of this in most countries. They offer the option to sustainably invest my short change by rounding off all of my purchases. This comes down to about €5,- a week, which is only €260,- a year, but still it is better than nothing. If you can spare it, you can also choose to invest a standard amount each week or month on top of that. Obviously, as with all investments, there is a chance you can lose your money, so never invest money that you don’t have!
Notion Tip: Notion freebie’s. Did you know that you can use Notion for free, forever? There are a few limitations though, so if you’re a Notion addict like me and use it professionally the paid version is a great option. It starts at €4,- a month, which doesn’t really break the bank at any rate. However, you can earn cash back by using Notion in different ways, like downloading the app on your devices. You can find your credit in your Notion account under the Setting & Members tab/Earn credit.
1st of August: Lughnasadh/Lammas. First of the 2022 harvest festivals. Celebrate your business “harvest” by picking one item from your accomplished goals and write a post about it on your preferred social channel.
