Publisher's Summary

Productivity is hard. Accomplishing big goals is even harder, and trying to grow a business or pursue a great big goal while raising kids feels almost impossible!
This book is for those of us who are mixing motherhood with other passions. We are raising babies while working tirelessly at enormous goals. We are playing with preschoolers while pursuing our passions. It is difficult enough to manage a home and love on our children without adding impossible dreams to the mix. But we know you can do it, and this book can help!
As a mamapreneur, being productive in the home is just as important as being productive with your business. The two go hand in hand because we juggle the kids, the home, and the business all day long. Using our time wisely in one area inevitably helps the other areas as well.
We don't have the luxury of a nine-to-five schedule where we can work exclusively on our business or big dream. Many of us are choosing to stay home with our kids and build our dream businesses in the snatches of time we find between carpools, bottles, and Play-Doh.
Others of us still work traditional nine-to-five jobs, so our margins in the hours off must be balanced wisely to have time for our families as well as time to pursue other passions. The exhaustion of a nine-to-five job fuels the fire for building a business where we can be our own boss.
As moms, it's not possible to simply cross the home front off the list and move on. Meals, laundry, and cleaning can't be put off indefinitely. Our families are more pleasant when they are fed, clean, and not living in filth. We get it. We live there.
We've drawn from our own experiences, trials, and errors when writing this book. We type not from corner offices and conference rooms but from crusty couches and crumb-filled kitchens. We've gathered the best tips from other moms in the trenches, too. So you'll hear not only what works for us but also what works for them.

Supremely helpful at any "Moma" stage.

Since my only child is an adult and lives on the other coast from me, you would think this book would have little value or relevancy to my life. However, I've always been chronically disorganized and have been on a 15 year mission to correct that. At my age I'm starting to feel that if I don't find better ways to achieve my goals I will die just a dreamer. Many of the chapters hit home and gave me more useful tools and a new way to think of things that GTD didn't help with! One warning; if you have adult kids, it may cause a twinge or two of guilt that you didn't have these skills early enough to teach your kids.

great book, will listen to it again!

I loved this book! I even started using some of the tips like listening to it only when doing things I don't enjoy like cardio and folding laundry!
