A recorded conversation between two friends on each side of the Atlantic – navigating the professional world; talking tech, travel, and reading while doing their best to make work work.

Hosted by Hrefna Helgadottir (Habbi) & Hailley Griffis.

Habbi lives in London via Reykjavik, works as a product manager and if she's not on her laptop somewhere, it's because she's on her phone somewhere else thinking about how to make the arts play nicely with business & tech. Hailley spends most of her time in airports, although she technically lives in Colorado via Toronto via multiple other places now. She works remotely as a public relations manager when she's not getting really good at fighting humans.


Super Ninja Grandma

Habbi and Hailley share beginning of year plans including resolutions vs goals vs habits vs tasks. In a surprise twist, Habbi has a sneaky productivity product that she'd told no one about (till now!).

P.S. Sending in your very own personal plans/processes for 2018, can and will trigger serious excitement shrieks from the two hosts.

You Are an Email Address to Me

The end of a year has the MWW hosts reflecting on their (sometimes strange) New Year traditions as well as top reads of 2017 which includes everything from novels to cook books to self-improvement, to the angriest email Habbi has ever sent.

Goats Are Not Known For Speed or Elegance

We have a podcast that is live now! It's a little meta to talk about launching a creative project, on said creative project – but that's exactly what we're doing. Oh, and also whether notifications are a nuisance now, and if the continental United States can be crossed in two trips.

None of This is Traditional

How do you MakeWorkWork when you're not in your regular home? We discuss what counts as a real office, the importance of a routine – and somehow the zombie apocalypse gets a mention (at least it's not Harry Potter!)

Oh, You're from the Internet? Come Along!

We break down Habbi's 84 point travel checklist (and she tells us her secret to glide through international security!) and we discuss how we segment social media between personal and professional – or don't.

You Are Married to OmniFocus Now

In the first ever MakeWorkWork episode, we compare and contrast task management apps, lists, and the merits of using a physical notebook. Hailley wants to know if anyone re-reads books, and turns out Habbi doesn't really – with a notable exception.
