Does the day ever slip away from you? I know it does for me more often than I’d like to admit. Join me and become the master of your time with my friend, Jen Riday. She is hosting a free online workshop, How to Know What You’re Supposed to Be Doing With Your Life and Find the Time to Do It! Check it out + get access here!
Now — storytime. 🙂
Back before Jen became a women’s happiness and productivity expert she was a stay-at-home mom for about a decade.
Jen has some great stories about her high-energy kids (like when the principal called to say all 3 of her at-the-time elementary kids had been to his office in one day! Poor Jen. We’ve all been there in some way or another, though, right?)
Like most moms, Jen gave all her time to her family, trying to be the “perfect” mom. But after too many elaborate birthday parties, attempts at gourmet meals and never enough sleep, Jen felt exhausted.
She wasn’t happy.
So Jen set out to fix that. She started taking care of herself. She studied every happiness book she could get her hands on. She figured out how to do spend way less time on the everyday household tasks so she could spend way MORE time on things that actually made her happy (like learning to play the banjo at age 39… I love that!).
When her youngest and 6th child, Cora, was about 18 months old, Jen started to get these nagging feelings that there was something “more” she was meant to do with her life.
Jen tells the story of lying on her mat at the end of a great workout class, wondering and praying, “What should I do with my life now that I’m done having kids?”
She’d asked this question soooo many times before…
…but on this day she got her answer because she was quiet, relaxed and focused enough to listen and hear the answer.
“You need to become a life coach and help other women learn what you’ve learned about being a happy person.”
Sweet, huh? (And I know we all wish we could have such a clear “do this” answer, right?)
Now Jen is helping thousands of women discover how to listen to their intuition to figure out what they should be doing with their lives.
But even more importantly, Jen’s teaching women her system to create more time for pursuing their passions and living lives of meaning and purpose (It’s one thing to know you have something you were born to do, a passion you need to pursue, a gift or talent you need to share with the world…but it’s quite another thing to know where to find the time for it!)
As a mom of 6 who’s also running a business, Jen knows A LOT about time management. For example, Jen teaches women to create a Week-at-a-Glance so they know EXACTLY what’s happening all week and can get a big-picture view of their life.
She also teaches women how to do “task blocking,” which means chunking similar tasks together so you can spend WAY LESS time on your to do list and WAY MORE time on the things that are important and enjoyable (family, health, creativity, relaxation, fun…)
My favorite part: Jen figured out a system to get her husband and kids to do more around the house (without her having to nag them. For real!)
I love hearing Jen tell this story because she has such a powerful “before” and “after.”
She went from “exhausted, burnt out, do-everything-for-everyone-else mom” to “energized, happy, sharing-her-gifts-with-the-world mom.”
Who better to learn how to be the master of your time from than someone who has done it!
Now, I know some of you out there are thinking, “That’s great for Jen. But I don’t have the first clue on how to figure out my purpose, let alone find time for it!”
Well, you’re in luck. Jen is sharing all of this – for free. 🙂
