You know you should be working on that presentation, but you procrastinate. To make things worse, the latest season of your favourite show has just dropped on Netflix. Luckily, making progress on your work and indulging in activities you enjoy is compatible and can make you more productive. That’s called temptation building.
Find your bundling, which can help you be productive by enjoying your ‘want’ & ‘need’ together.
Last Thursday, I turned 34, which got me thinking about how my birthdays have changed. Especially since my daughter just turned one, some changes must be made. I cannot go all bonkers with night parties(maybe sometimes 😉). I’ll get back to it once she grows a little older. I am grateful & super happy spending time with my little one.

Kajabi is an all-in-one tool where you can market & sell your digital products or courses from one platform. It has some cool integrations & onboarding processes with training to help you set up. Turn your knowledge into income.
The AARRR framework is used by the marketing team with a growth strategy in place. It focuses on metrics that matter and which can drive business growth.
A simple example for each step should help you with a better idea:
1) Acquisition → Visitors on the website or app, spend a little more time
2) Activation → Users do the following: free trial, sign-ups, or want more information
3) Retention → Returning visitors, the open rate of emails, conversations with the sales team
4) Referral → Happy users refer your product/service by NPS, word of mouth, average rating
5) Revenue → Users pay for your product/service, MRR, CLV, and ARR.
This is not a perfect model, but it can be a good starting point. There are other loops such as the Growth loops that I will provide you with soon.
