Review

"TILT is more than a parenting book, it is a tribute to our journey as moms, but not forgetting our journey as women." Angela Chee, TV Host, The Zen Mom

"TILT is totally relatable & can help working moms today overcome guilt. Marci shares with us practical ways to build the family life & professional life we aspire to, while setting a great example of love & leadership for our children." Rachael L. Bodie, Regional Director, The John Maxwell Company

"TILT is an excellent resource for working moms to build a fun & truly fulfilling motherhood." Eadaoin Waller, Partner, Anderson, Tate & Carr, PC

"Marci Fair really gets working moms (and all moms), and the guilt we feel when we aren't perfect or try to take time for ourselves. TILT is chock full of fantastic ideas, "been there, done that" anecdotes from all types of moms, and inspiration to keep us in a positive frame of mind and, dare I say it, guilt-free! It's a must read for every mom!" Elisa All, Founder, 30 Second Mom, a 30Second Mobile brand

"Not only is TILT a great resource for working moms, it is a reminder of what really matters in our lives." Diedra Sorohan, Managing Partner, O'Kelley & Sorohan Attorneys At Law, LLC

"Finally a book for professional women who have a heart for mothering!" Bonnie M. Rich, Assistant Director, Georgia State University College of Law Tax Clinic

"I ABSOLUTELY LOVED THIS BOOK!" Mo Anderson, Vice Chairman of the Board, Keller Williams Realty International

From the Author

It took me several years to write TILT, in between working, life and mothering four children. As a busy mom myself, I wanted the book to be easy for another busy mom to pick up and quickly see an idea, a tip or an inspiration that she would be able to use to improve her life right away. 

With that in mind, TILT has
- over 70 of our children's funny and insightful quotes,
- over 100 practical tips for working moms, and
- the wisdom of 86 other women who shared a mom-thought to help mothers today. 
I am delighted that the feedback and reviews have been so positive, demonstrating the impact TILT is already having. 
My goal for TILT is both big and small - 
To help 10,000 moms and raise $10,000 for Kares 4 Kids, and
To touch the hearts of moms to empower and encourage them to have a memory-rich life with their children, as they pursue their dreams with greater fulfillment.

By Stacie Theis on January 16, 2014
Format: Paperback
TILT: 7 Solutions To Be A Guilt-Free Working Mom is like a breath of fresh air for moms everywhere. The book reminds us that we are not alone in our doubts, failures, and successes. It celebrates the tough choices we as moms make everyday and lets us know it's okay to have dreams of our own and to pursue those dreams without regret.

As a mom of four myself, I have worked inside and outside of the home and experienced much of the guilt addressed in TILT. I have struggled to find balance and even lost myself deep in motherhood, leaving my own dreams on the back shelf covered in dust. I have been a stay-at-home mom for more than 16 years, a choice that was difficult and rewarding at the same time, and one I would not change. When my youngest child started school I felt lost and without purpose. It was then I realized I didn't know what to do if I wasn't mothering someone 24 hours a day. I felt alone and depressed, until my husband reminded me that I had to rediscover who I was. Armed with this great advice, I began teaching art to children once a month, volunteering with reading groups in the school, created this website, and started writing children's books.

When I read TILT, I felt as though Marci wrote this book just for me. Her wonderfully written story speaks to our emotions and lets us experience those emotions without guilt. Whether you have a career outside of the home, work from home, or are a stay-at-home mom, TILT will inspire and encourage you to pursue your choices with strength.

I highly recommend picking up TILT: 7 Solutions To Be A Guilt-Free Working Mom.

While teaching that parenting, working, raising children, and remaining safe is not a balanced way of life, Marci Fair teaches us in TILT, to expect the ups and downs, the highs and lows of this crazy lifestyle that so many of us have chosen to live.

I am now a grandparent, helping my daughter raise her son. When I was raising my five children, balance was the word that was always spoken when people talked about raising kids and working. You have to maintain balance in your life to maintain your sanity and raise healthy children. I strove for balance, but always failed, usually at the detriment to my own health, sleep, dreams, or goals.

TILT is a refreshing way of looking at the crazy lifestyle of the working parent. There is no balance. Just being a parent throws that word out the window, throw in a career....you can take it out of the dictionary as well. Using quotes from experts, including her own children, stories from other Moms who are living the TILTed lifestyle and her own experience, Marci Fair has written a well 'tilted' book about what is important in raising a family. Learning how to ride the ride, and enjoy the ups and the downs, those little kiddos, the spouse, the house, the dog, the job....and the world around. Yeah, good stuff. Wish I had this book when mine were little!

As a Dad of 2 toddlers I gained great insight into a Moms world and how as a Dad I can become a great DadMom.
As Dads sometime we struggle with how to "fit" in with our kids daily lives. Marci's book TILT offers a wonderful perspective on being a Mom and parenthood in general It gave me a few simple tools and tricks to find my place in the craziness of everyday Momhood.
HINT - Real Men read TILT and sometimes aren't afraid to live life in the Mom lane

Thanks Marci - great read

As a new mother of a beautiful 1 year old TILT – 7 Solutions to Be a Guilt-Free Working Mom by Marci Fair really spoke to me. While it really is geared towards helping the working mom learn how to manage the many things on their plate, I think that even other stay at home moms like me can relate to it. Marci does a great job at identifying ways that the busy mom can make their lives less stressful and more rewarding. The part that stuck with me the most was in the first chapter. When I learned I was pregnant and since then I have struggled greatly with finding a balance between wanting a career for myself and wanting to be able to stay home with my daughter like my mother did. I felt as though in order to have the one I would have to sacrifice the other. Reading TILT, however, is helping me to accept that it is ok for me to have still have dreams and aspirations for myself. In fact, it is more than OK; it is good for my child, myself, and my whole family if I continue to dream.

Another great part of this book is the stories that Marci uses to help illustrate how her tips can help you to find balance in your busy day to day lives. This was a great read.

TILT- 7 Solutions To Be A Guilt-Free Working Mom by Marci Fair is a 319 page parenting guide. It includes an About The Author page, a Foreword, 3 Parts (4 chapters in Part 2), resources and notes. I have to say that my son has graduated college and my daughter is still in college, but this book still spoke volumes to me. I would recommend it to pregnant woman. It is a terrific source of inspiration and wisdom. Kudos to Fair for fitting it into her schedule and writing it.

My favorite was in Part 2, chapter 2, Connecting with your kids today. ‘I try to think about where they are in their lives, who they are, and what is important to them.’ When life gets busy it is too easy to overlook or dismiss things that at the time WE do not think is important. This section brought back a lot of memories. I wish I had this book fifteen years ago! Recommended read.
