In today's episode, James invites his friend Ajay Mehta on to take questions from listeners. The first caller, Sean from North Carolina, askes "What are the best tools or apps to become more productive?" Ajay and James dive deep into their career timeline and talk through the tools they have used in the past and the new found solutions to these tools that have helped them become more productive in modern day. The second question comes from David on Twitter, asking "What is a skill you wish you had?" James and Ajay bring up skills from their mentors that have been molded into their minds around time management and workflow. They also speak about how some of these mentors skills can make your daily workflow much easier and less stressful. To conclude the episode, Question #3 comes from Sarah on Twitter asking, "What is your biggest miss?" This topic ranges from investing to running a company and understanding upside vs downside. One 100x investment could potentially make up for those other 20 investments that turned into nothing.
