One man who knows how it’s done is Erik Fisher. Erik is the Social Media Manager for the Social Media Examiner’s web site and is also the host of the podcast, Beyond The To-Do List.

On his show, he has conversations with some of the best and brightest successes in the world about their productivity habits, their successes and failures, and how they balance it all with their home life and their loved ones.
