Description

Hi Instigators,

As we needed distracting from the greyness of January and its a good time of year to form new habits and most likely hiring. We are focusing on Health & Productivity and welcoming experts to inspire us!

#StartupSanity This will probably feel familiar to anyone who has ever worked in a startup, where job roles can be undefined, and there's huge pressure to "keep shipping." Startups often do not have a fully fledged HR department to listen to complaints or the systems in place to prevent burnout.One person with direct experience is James Routledge, an entrepreneur who cofounded social network Matchchat in 2012, then suffered anxiety and stress when the company was wound up. "Life was basically a pitch," he told Business Insider. Some companies who have signed up include fintech firm TransferWise, identity checking startup Onfido, and car sales platform Carwow. http://read.bi/2g8Nqk3

#Productivity Face it — founding, running, or working for a startup is hard and can be extremely stressful. The only constant is change, priorities are always shifting, and productivity is the key to success. As an entrepreneur or employee at a startup, it’s vital for you to be as productive and efficient as you can. Not only will this help you be more effective and efficient at your job, but it will also help reduce the stress that comes with running and working at a startup. Below are 10 productivity hacks to start off your year on the right foot. http://sforce.co/1HyPcfK
