Have you ever felt totally overwhelmed with the amount of information available? With the books, articles, courses, and videos all throwing more knowledge at you? It feels as if you're being tugged in a million different directions and you don't know what to pay attention to and what to filter out. In this episode our guest Kyle Eschenroeder from Startupbros.com tells us about how to be more creative and increase our creative output through one activity that also resets his relationship with information. I LOVE this episode, because Kyle just brings this infectious enthusiasm for productivity, online business and especially input deprivation. This is Part I of a two-part interview with Kyle. Check back next week to find the second part, all about how to monetize your blog, make money online and figure out a product that your audience wants.
