Two things I spend a lot of my time doing are exercising and online marketing. Although they aren’t related activities there are a lot of commonalities. For example both take planning, commitment and knowledge. Going to the gym to for an hour a week isn’t going to keep that whole pizza off your gut, thighs, or butt.
