Time management for moms, from SAHM to CEO:
A chat with Leona Carter
In this week’s episode, I am chatting with Leona Carter, intimacy and relationship coach. She is mother of six, grandmother of one, and the author of nine books, including Maximize T.I.M.E: 44 Strategies to Effectively Manage Your Time from Motherhood to CEO. With six kids Leona had to become a good time manager from day one, not to mention how she became a successful coach and author. She shares some of her best scheduling strategies for how to manage a family, a business, or both. From establishing routines and using visual schedules, to taking the time to teach your kids in order to save yourself time in the long run, Leona is passionate (some might say fierce!) about time management.
She has a contagious energy and this conversation was full of passion and fun. Enjoy!
