CEO Hacks: App, Books, Resources & Habits

Be a more effective & efficient CEO, entrepreneur & business owner

During our I AM CEO Podcast, we ask each guest for a CEO Hack that makes them more effective and efficient. We decided to share some of our best hacks.

What are CEO Hacks? They are books, apps, habits, tools, platforms or things that we believe you should incorporate into your business that will make you more efficient, effective, or successful (and maybe save money) as a CEO, entrepreneur or business owner.

Formerly Smart Podcast Player

Encourage binge listening. Drive conversion to email. Reward fans with transcripts.
 That and more is possible with our toolbox of podcasting software.

We’re podcasters at heart who dare to build our own tools.

Back in 2015, our co-founder Pat Flynn had a problem. He wanted to delight visitors to his website with the ability to listen to any episode from his podcast. Right there, on the site. Options were sparse, ugly, and just not quite right back then. So we built one. That tool became Smart Podcast Player (SPP), and the podcasting world rejoiced.

We enhanced SPP in the years that followed. All the while, new pain points and innovative ideas emerged as the podcasting industry boomed. We sat on those pain points and innovative ideas for a while. But no more.

Today, we’re Fusebox—the same core team with a new name that embodies our expanded mission to build a toolbox of powerful software to empower podcasters with dynamic ways of energizing their audiences to drive engagement and results.

Our players will always be at our core. But there’s a lot more we can—and will—build to help all of us podcasters take control of our future.

The Most Popular WordPress Theme In The World And The Ultimate WordPress Page Builder

Divi is our flagship theme and visual page builder. It's the most widely used premium WordPress theme in the world according to stats from BuiltWith.com. Divi is more than just a theme, it's a website building framework that makes it possible to design beautiful websites without ever touching a single line of code and without installing and configuring dozens of disjointed plugins. We think this is the future of WYSIWYG and it's unlike any WordPress theme you have ever used before.
