"Building a thriving business while building a happy family is all about how you spend your most precious resource: your hours. The good news is that we do have time for what matters to us, and in Moms Mean Business, Erin and Lara show how to prioritize what's important and chuck what isn't, so you can succeed at work and life."
--Laura Vanderkam, author of What the Most Successful People Do Before Breakfast
"Moms Mean Business not only gives moms permission to dust off business dreams and make them a reality, but it shares with the rest of the world that they are a new kind of business owner that will change the business landscape…for the better."
--Michelle McCullough, Startup Princess

If you are looking to cultivate a holistic success that leaves you feeling fulfilled and energized, this is the book for you.
The book starts by helping the reader become reacquatined with themselves. Each exerecise is part of a careful progression designed to guide you to create a realistic and productive schedule. You are encouraged to examine family and business demands along with your personal needs. By scheduling without overbooking and planning to spend dedicated time with family, the authors advocate that the entrepreneur can become a more effective person overall.
The second half of the book focuses on the company that you are trying to move forward. Erin and Lara offer several strategies to become more powerful mom entrepreneurs. They show you how to identify what stage your business is in and then how to move it stategically from where you are to the next stage. Throughout the book, there are anecdotes from other mom business owners that illustrate everything from failure to triumph.
Interestingly, I ended each chapter taking away different lessons than what was written by the authors. I think that I was beyond the beginning stages of my self-discovery as a business woman and owner. With that in mind, this book should be looked at as a reference tool. As you grow your organization and as your needs, and the needs of your family change, this book can be referred to time and again to help you reassess and realign your priorities.
While this book has a carefully cultivated audience, many people could benefit from the message that it sends. The book clearly illustrates that real life is just as important and fulfilling as work life. Fathers that want to spend more time with their children, people who are chonically ill and are struggling to make a go of it, along with mothers who are juggling midnight feedings and a burgeoning company can all use this book to create realistic expectations and move a business foward.
As a fellow woman business owner, I highly recommend you add this book to your aresenal.
I really enjoyed the moms talk sections with personal stories and the ideas and tips for being a better mom entrepreneur that I am.
