If you're like most of my clients, you probably have an endless line of people saying how they are going to save you money, make you more money, or show you the secret to getting more people to give you money… for a fee.
You might have noticed, I'm different. I let you experience many of my processes yourself so you can see they work before I ask you for a dime. Consistent with that, I'm not going to talk about the money I'll save or get you. In fact, I'm going to give you something more valuable than money. That's right, I said GIVE.
I'm going to give you back your time. And I don't just mean the time you're taking right now reading this. I'm going to give you back almost half the time you’re using now.
Notice I didn't say wasting time. That's because if you're like me, you spend a lot of time watching videos to learn about various subjects. Whether it's keeping abreast of current events, or Continuing Education in your profession, video training is playing a large part. A long and time consuming part.
Don't get me wrong. You can get so much more from video than you can from static text or images. And in fact, that is why I prefer video. That's also why I found these free tools to be so helpful.
Here's a video speed controller you can add to your chrome browser. It allows you to speed up videos you're watching online, as well as jump forward or back. You can use it to speed up almost all videos online including YouTube videos.
But what if you have videos on your hard drive? There's another tool I use for speeding up video and audio (podcast) files.
Between those two tools I've saved literally days worth of time since I started using them. Now you can do the same. Depending on the speaker and the subject, I run through at a minimum of 1.6 to 2.0 times normal. That means I'll burn through what would otherwise be 5 hours of video in a little under 3 hours. I love it!
A word of caution: Don't fall into the trap of watching more and more videos just because you can! Use that saved time to implement what you've learned and this will truly be a benefit.
