Have you ever felt overwhelmed by your list of things to do for the day? If I told you that you could get rid of that feeling… and still get MORE done, would you do it?

Today’s guest, Tonya Dalton is a productivity expert and speaker who believes that too many women feel overwhelmed with everything they have to do each day. Her massively successful company, inkWELL Press ® is a company centered around productivity tools, training and education.

Tonya’s messages about business management, productivity, and the pursuit of passion have impacted thousands and inspired her to launch her podcast, Productivity Paradox, and her online productivity course, The liveWELL Method™.

In this episode, Tonya and I dive in to honoring our productivity, spending less time on what drains our energy, and more time what matters most.
