A couple of weeks I ago, I attended Australia’s largest and longest running blogging event, ProBlogger Training Event 2015.

The more I procrastinated, the more immaculate my house became.
We can all be susceptible to procrastination, but as busy marketers, we simply can’t afford to let it take us off track. Let’s look at five ways to banish procrastination so you can reclaim your day and get the important stuff done.
Late last year, I listened to an episode of Pat Flynn’s Smart Passive Income podcast where he interviewed Hal Elrod, author of the The Miracle Morning: The Not-So-Obvious Secret Guaranteed to Transform Your Life (Before 8AM).
