The Truth About Working Moms

You and I?  We are the backbone of our society.  We are simultaneously impacting the economy and raising the next generation, and the fact is, when we thrive, all tides rise. And yet, working moms such as yourself have very little support when it comes to excelling in all of your many roles… 

  • You feel overextended, but unclear on how or where to cut back, and you fear that doing so will negatively impact your success.
  • You’re under constant pressure to choose between career and family, and often worry about whether you’re making the right choice.
  • You’re overwhelmed and stressed out by your never-ending to-do list, and you aren’t even sure that the items you’re crossing off will move you forward in the way you want.
That is, until now. Here at The Savvy Working Mom, my goal is to help you gain clarity on the life you want and guide you in creating it. Being a working mom does not have to feel like one lousy compromise after another. Let me show you how to “do it all” AND live with joy and peace while doing it.

Find Confidence and Joy... Work and at Home

When it comes to success as a working mom, I have a fail-safe formula that will help you transform your life from one of self-doubt and constant overwhelm to one of peace and prosperity:

  • First, we delve into clarity and mindset, as these two pieces will lay the foundation for your success.
  • Next, I teach you how to prioritize your time and energy using the Shine, Manage, Surrender method. It’s here that we’ll discuss goal setting and time management.
  • Third, you’ll learn some productivity and persuasion skills, including my signature DEBAC method of managing your to-dos, and the incredible power of saying “No.”
  • Last, we make a plan for self-care, to ensure you’re always pouring from a full cup.

Whether you’re ready for a complete overhaul and the extensive support that comes with one-on-one coaching, or you’d like to start with an online course that’s self-paced and specific to the area you’re struggling with the most, I am here to support you.
