If you’ve ever wondered if it’s possible for maximum productivity and peacefulness to co-exist, I highly recommend you check out a blog called

Zen Habits is written by Leo Babauta, a married dad of six who is a writer, runner, and vegetarian (don’t hold that against him) and lives in Guam. Leo is also the author of a new best-selling book “The Power of Less: The Fine Art of Limiting Yourself to the Essentials in Work and in Life.”

On, Leo offers up simple tips on how to cultivate calm and simplicity in your life, stay motivated in business, and successfully implement good habits.

Some of Leo’s most popular posts include:

10 Benefits of Rising Early, and How to Do It
Get Off Your Butt: 16 Ways to Get Motivated When You’re in a Slump
Simple Living Simplified: 10 Things You Can Do Today to Simplify Your Life

The simple, insightful articles I find on Leo’s blog often give me that entrepreneurial caffeine pep that helps me re-focus during challenging parts of my day.

Aside from the obvious “zen” benefits we get from reading Leo’s blog, Natalie and I are also closely following the strategies Leo has outlined on how he managed to generate such a massive readership in such a short period of time – the same success we would like to duplicate with WomanzWorld.

Just two short years after launching his blog, Leo has over 100,000 subscribers and has been named one of the Top 25 blogs on the Internet by Time Magazine.

Interested in how he did it? Check out the eBook he wrote that Natalie and I are also reading:
