This is Hank Hoffmeier with the marketing and business tip

I am once again joined by Lori Bruhns, a business productivity and success coach and she is going give us a tip on how to be productive.

Lori: Thanks again for having me Hank, I appreciate this. So, today’s tip is called “buffering your tasks”.
