People are working almost 24 x 7 these days. I have a lot of friends who work in corporate world and here is a short story on one of them:
A friend of mine had a very lucrative sales job and her team was based out of China and U.S.A. When I used to ask her about how that worked out, she told me that she would work with her team in the U.S.A. during the morning hours and then come back home, feed her kids, make them do their homework, put them to sleep and would be on calls with her…Continue

I love what I do. I'm a Social Media Mom who has a chance to inspire others online through writing, videos, etc. but I also am a mom. I'm thankful that have the flexibility to be able to watch my kids grow. However, there are times when the business world and the family world collide. Here I am left wondering if I'm giving enough to each. That's where time management of my time working at home becomes so important. That way I am able to give dedicated time to my work but I'm also not missing…Continue

Parents develop skill sets that no one talks about. In addition to awesome time management and the ability to function on a lack of sleep, we also have the ability to make up songs on the fly, invent games to distract children while waiting in line and even build super-cool forts out of pillows and blankets.…Continue

Mommy Masters welcomes Ryan Currie, who shares great tips for mompreneurs.
Being a mom is the hardest job in the world…everyone knows that! But combine the responsibilities of motherhood and entrepreneurialism? It’s a recipe to quickly becoming overworked, overstressed, and overextended. The toughest part of all is figuring out how to find the time to work on business while staying home…

As you settle into the new year, do you sometimes feel like time is getting away from you? I make list after list of what I want to accomplish each day – and often get a large chunk completed - but never seem to get everything done. Now that I make my lists on my PDA, it's easier to just change the date and roll the reminders over to the next day. Yet the sense of satisfaction that I feel when I do finish a…Continue

Prioritizing time as parents
By Becky Shattuck, guest blogging from “I’m going to make it (after all)” (http://becky-shattuck.blogspot.com/)
It’s been said before. Parenting is both the hardest and most rewarding job in the world. I’m a stay at home mom. I’m with my kids pretty much all day long, every day, so I can attest to that personally.
Little kids need a lot of attention. Actually, that…Continue

Spring is just around the corner! To most of us, spring represents a time for freshness, growth and re-birth. Flowers start to bloom, animals emerge from hibernation, and birds return to the north from their winter homes to nest, procreate, and chirp away from morning ‘til dusk.
In most parts of the country, days become longer, weather becomes milder, and many people emerge from their own winter hibernations and spend less time indoors. The warmer weather…Continue

Each day that I walk home from Aliya's bus stop I chat with one of my neighbors who also has a child that rides the bus with her. We basically share our thoughts on general things like life, kids and whatever we can think of for our five minute catch up as we walk home.
I work from home and I didn't have the previous day scheduled to work so me being my Martha Stewart self (I like to think so) kept myself busy. I told her how I organized Ayanna's entire closet before she came home…Continue

PMS. We are all familiar with it. My boyfriend being the only man in the house of 4 jokingly refers to this as "Pack My Suitcase" time. However, those of us that have experienced it know that it is no joke.
Not all women will experience PMS, but many (about 75%) will experience some of the…Continue

Do you find stress creeping up on you when you least expect (or have time for) it? We all do. We tend to view it as "just a part of life". But what we don't realize is that stress does not have to be a part of our life and is not really who we are. Tranquility and balance…Continue

Each quarter I think it's a good idea to check out my schedules and see if I need to make changes. School is back on the routine and my nephews had to get picked up from school this month. So October is really going to look different. So lets get started.
I want to make time for all of you here at…Continue

I get it, actually. There is something very rewarding about jotting down do-not-forget’s and to-do’s on paper. And there is an immediate, tactile satisfaction too in scratching off that “done” item and…Continue

As summer finally begins to make itself known around here (I know, everyone else is experiencing record highs, right?), last week I found myself feeling outsmarted again by our stuff.
"OK, everyone outside."
"Wait, where's your hat?"
"Do you have sunblock on yet?"
"I don't know. Where IS the sunblock?"
"Who used the sunblock last?!"
I've said it a million times. But here it goes again. My job description oftentimes feels like it must read: 50% SAHM duties /…

So, I took a training on time management last Friday, and I am just now getting to post about it. The training itself was enjoyable, and I'll tell you some of what I learned- but first - can someone please explain to me how I'm supposed to manage time that doesn't exist?
Maybe that's a bit dramatic, but it's really how I feel this week. Too many things on my plate, all of which seem pretty important. It stresses me out and makes me feel more disorganized than I already am.…

I used to be a madwoman on the weekends. Dr. D. avoided me Saturday mornings as I rode around on my broom frantically trying to cram in as many tasks before noon as possible. As a busy working mother, I found that my weekends were consumed with catching up on all of the stuff I couldn't get done during the week -- laundry, cooking, errands, you name it. Even before…Continue

I've been telling my husband lately that my life is a lot like Groundhog's Day.
Monotonous. Yes. But I'm actually the one choosing to shape it that way, since it keeps everything flowing smoothly and sanely here.
My personal Groundhog's Day is complete with:
* Anticipating hunger by pre-preparing snacks.
* Thinking of meals in as far advance as I can stand, so I don't end up in a hot…

Hi, my name is Portia and I am a recovering good girl. I think as the oldest of three children I came to my good girl tendencies naturally. At school I studied hard, tried really hard, got good grades and helped my teachers after school. I was such a good girl that during the planning of my high school’s (unsanctioned) senior skip day I was asked to collect my classmate’s money…Continue

When we moved to our new home eight months ago, I was worried. You see, our new home has no dishwasher. And I had kind of made a personal vow that I would never move to another home without a dishwasher again until all my kids had left the nest.
I love dishwashers. Matter of fact, if I had to put all my appliances in order (yes, odd, but something I've done while living without electricity in the rainforest), it would be like this:
1. Stove (Burners beat out all. Plain and…
