In December 2018, I gave my wife an empty box for Christmas.

No, it wasn’t a “gag gift.”

It was literally just an empty box.

I remember the look on Lucy’s face when I gave it to her…

I could tell she was kind of confused (which is totally fair).

So I said to her…

“Every day, at 5:30 PM, I’m going to put my phone in this box. I’m going to unplug myself from my business. And I’m going to spend the evening completely focused on you and the kids.”

That was my promise to her.

And it was one of her favorite Christmas gifts ever.

But halfway through 2019, things changed.

I took over as the CEO and owner of 7 Figure Flipping.

I was running 2 businesses, each with full teams of employees I was responsible for.

I was sleeping 2 or 3 hours a night.

So I talked with Lucy, and I said, “Hey, things are kind of crazy right now…”

I explained the situation. And she understood.

After that, the phone stopped going into the box.

I was pretty bummed about not being able to stick with it.

And I remember one day just before Flip Hacking LIVE I saw that empty box sitting in our living room and realized it had been months since I’d put my phone in it.

A thought crossed my mind…

The same thought we all have when life is crazy-busy and stressful.

I thought, “I wish there were more hours in the day. I wish I could get more done in less time.”

If I could have figured out a way to accomplish 3X more per hour, I would have had PLENTY of time to spend with Lucy and the kids every day.

If I could have TRIPLED my work output…

…then I could have put my phone in the box at 4:00 PM if I’d wanted.

That would have been awesome.

I’m sure you’ve felt this way too…

We’ve ALL wished for more hours in the day.

We’ve ALL wished we could be more productive.

And at the start of a new year, we’re all thinking about how to get more done and hit our goals.

So I want to bring some special on the podcast today…

Nina Ferraro is a real estate investor.

But in addition to that, she’s the creator of an incredible time management system that she uses to 3X her productivity.

Her system is mind-blowing…

And the story of how she developed it is pretty incredible.

Imagine working a 9-to-5 job and having all your daily tasks completed by mid-morning.

Imagine being able to do all the work you’re currently doing, but in half the time… or in one-third the time.

This is the kind of stuff we’re getting into in today’s episode.

Nina is going to share…

…and more.

Boosting your productivity is one of the fastest ways to accelerate your personal and professional growth…

…and Nina is THE productivity expert.

Let’s dive in!

If you want to learn more about Nina’s system, head over to her website Her productivity system hinges on a specific planner that she and her friend Mary developed, as well as training and coaching that go along with it. Check it out!
