Smart and caring women, like you, need a different kind of time management advice that isn’t so readily available.
The more capable you are, the more people rely on you–at work, in your community, and at home. You can probably take on more than you’re average person because you are already efficient with your time.
But, there comes a point when it gets to be too much and instead of feeling satisfied and fulfilled, you may find yourself feeling overworked, under-appreciated, and therefore resentful.
I know this because I’ve been there. And, I’ve coached so many talented and successful women get bogged down by loved ones and colleagues. Working with them, I learned that you don’t need a major overhaul. You don’t have time to waste with trial and error, so the tips I share are only the ones tested out by my clients and me.
Where to Begin?
Talented and conscientious women, like you, do not need a makeover. I recommend starting with easy yet effective adjustments. I’ve pulled together five of my best tweaks in one PDF download. It’s free when you subscribe to my weekly email list:

How is Time Management For Women Different?
Your aim is not to do more. You are already doing so much.
I want to help you reclaim your life by helping you find more time and energy for…
- Meaningful work (and by work, I don’t just mean a career but possibly an avocation), and
- People you love and admire.
I believe these are the two ingredients to a more satisfying life, and this is where other time management advice often falls short.
Many talented and caring women also have a deep desire to make a difference in the world. Deep down they know they have something unique to contribute. But, for these unconventional women, it is sometimes hard to figure out what that is or how to start. They get stuck for a variety of reasons, and not having enough time to think makes things worse.
My aim is to help you kickstart that dream project, even if you’re not quite sure what it is.
