When Jessica Turner contacted me to be a contributor for her upcoming book “Stretched too Thin” I was thrilled to share with other working moms how I overcame grief, cared for two toddlers (an 8 week old and 3 year old) and kept my career going, through what seemed like the most daunting time of my life. It is the lessons learned from this experience that led to tremendous opportunities like contributing to several books and working on one of my very own. As a young widow, I had entered a world where the demands on my time were great and I felt – “stretched too thin”.
Working mothers constantly battle the pull to do all the things well. From managing work and home responsibilities to being impacted by a lack of self-care and time for deep friendships, the struggle is real. At the end of each day, many working moms are exhausted and stretched too thin. But this does not have to be the norm. Jessica outlines this very well in her upcoming book.
Jessica is the author of the Wall Street Journal bestselling book The Fringe Hours and the founder of the popular lifestyle blog The Mom Creative. In her latest practical and inspiring book, Jessica Turner shows the working mom how to:
– work and parent guilt-free
– establish clear work boundaries
– set achievable goals
– discover more flexibility
– develop home management solutions
– prioritize self-care
– invest in her marriage
– cultivate deeper friendships
– feel like a good mom, even while working
Full of compassion and encouragement, Stretched Too Thin will empower women with useful insights and tools to thrive as working moms.
The book is out on September 18th 2018. Happy to be part of this tremendous project!
