Slack is the communication app start-up companies swear by. With no limit to how many users can be added, this instant messaging platform can organize conversations into separate or private channels. You can also send documents and other files directly in the message. No matter the business, Slack is the key to communication.

Have you ever read Tim Ferriss’ “The 4-Hour Work Week”?

But Tim Ferriss is a genius, encapsulating the lessons he’s learned from some of the greatest business minds of our generation. His podcast, The Time Ferriss Show, focuses on unique tips, tricks and tactics that we can take away and use in our daily lives!
