In this episode, we dive deep into the world of time management and productivity, a challenge faced by many ambitious individuals and entrepreneurs.

We discuss the difficulties of balancing work and personal life, as well as the importance of leveraging tools, skills, and resources to make the most out of our limited time. Our guest, Starlight Miller, shares her experience as an entrepreneur in residence at Richland Library, where she provided mentorship and inspiration to aspiring business owners. We explore the importance of learning from others on similar journeys and the concept of doing more with less. As we discuss the creation of a new company centered around helping people make better decisions with limited information and disconnected systems, we delve into the complexities of optimizing time management and understanding oneself.

We emphasize the significance of ensuring that a process works before attempting to optimize or automate it, to avoid amplifying existing issues and inefficiencies. Throughout the conversation, we touch on the importance of self-awareness, finding one’s optimal “lane” in business, and navigating the challenges of transitioning from an employee to a business owner. By focusing on what brings you joy and conviction, you can build a sustainable business that aligns with your values and goals. Join us as we investigate the concept of connecting technology with human behavior and preferences for better time management and productivity, and explore the idea of building a for-profit community-based company.

We also reflect on the importance of considering our goals and aspirations in the early stages of entrepreneurship, especially when aiming to build a company bigger than ourselves. Tune in to this insightful and thought-provoking episode as we discuss our struggles with time management, learn from each other’s experiences, and share valuable insights to help you optimize your life and achieve success in your personal and professional endeavors.
