While I don't have young children anymore, this book on time management offered many ideas that I can put to use immediately. Between my day job, being a grandma to 6 kids and being very involved in my church, my time was limited just the same. When I have free time I waste it on the computer going down the magical rabbit hole called Pinterest, and then feeling guilty that I didn't accomplish much of anything that I thought I wanted or needed to.
They include worksheets to help you define your passions and then help determine what the big goals are to allow you to act upon your passions along with several other worksheets to help you manage your time and keep track of your progress. The book also includes links to several other websites of other bloggers that they mention in the book that are also useful resources.
This is a great resource and I will be referencing it many times in the coming months.
I have read a lot of time management books and none of those have "clicked". I didn't understand what was wrong until I read introduction of this book - most time management books are from men to men (or women living alone with no children). This book is for moms - for moms, who put family first, but still want to accomplish something more...
They won't tell you to delegate your children. They won't tell you to wake up 4 hours early to work on your goals when 4 hours is exactly amount of sleeping time that you've got. They won't tell you what you should be doing or you're no good.
They tell you that you are awesome. They tell you, how you can find time for yourself and for your business, based on what they have experienced. And most important - no quilt-trips - and this is why I loved this book.
I think I'll read it again.
In addition, I love the takeaways listed at the end of each chapter. I can quickly skim through the book for inspiration, and focus on a chapter that has a takeaway that caught my eye.
I am printing out all of the worksheets mentioned, and will be putting them to use to help corral my chaos very soon.
With real life advice from moms scattered throughout the chapters, you will come away with a handful of helpful tips to aid you on your own personal journey.
This book is filled with tips on how to make use of nap time, create activities for your children to explore independently, even advice on how to maintain your home without making it your first priority.
These two women bring you a user-friendly guide to help you on your way to finally achieving your goals and living your passion, most importantly, without the guilt.

It's a relief to hear someone else say "There's no way I can get up 4 hours early to work on my stuff because someone has to watch the kids" and understand that you can't just throw yourself into your work with laser focus like all the other books say. You have more than just yourself to think about! Moms have to manage their time differently and that doesn't make those practices inferior to what others are doing, it's just specific to life as a parent.
Sarah and Beth Anne are parents and business owners and clearly know what they're talking about. This book helps us Moms give ourselves permission to be perfectly imperfect and work smartly around our particular needs to find success.
