I don’t have enough time – you know, that excuse that so many of us have used at times. Today is your game changer. Because I am talking with Tim Baxter of ‘Who gives a Crap’ about time management and we are going to get deep about tracking, measuring and how to automate your time.

Tim works has been playfully exploring different ways to balance work and play which has found him working remotely for the last five years.

On the productive front, as a marketer, he’s been part of a number of businesses. Co-founding a social enterprise group with 30 members whilst at university, as well as a textbook swap and sell business called Arrange Exchange. After getting a taste for marketing in the real world, he started a marketing agency to work with businesses in e-commerce, travel and creative services.

Today, his time is spent as a growth marketing manager at Who Gives a Crap, selling toilet paper which donates 50% of its profits to help build toilets and sanitation projects for those in growing countries.

If Tim’s not on his laptop, he tends to be in the frolicking in the ocean on a surfboard.
