Lara Galloway, The Mom Biz Coach, is an author, speaker, business coach and mentor to mom entrepreneurs and small business owners at MomBiz. Her passion is helping entrepreneurs create and run businesses that honor their priorities and values. She is frequently interviewed for her expertise on work/life balance, starting and running a successful small business, marketing your business on Social Media, and creatively managing your time by media like Forbes, Crain’s Business, ABC, The Chicago Tribune, and More Magazine. Her book, Moms Mean Business: The Guide to a Successful Business and a Happy Life as a Mom Entrepreneur will be published by Career Press in October 2014. When she’s not working, she’s wrangling her three kids with her husband, drinking good wine or micro-brewed beer, and baking something with lots of calories since food is her love language. She loves living in Michigan, especially when it’s 80 degrees and sunny.
Inside This Episode
- Motivational Quote
- Must Read Book
- Productivity Tool/Tip
I live by my Google Calendar on my iPhone. I schedule everything in there with a date and time, whether it’s a coaching appointment with a client, a reminder to return the library books, an email I need to send my child’s teacher, or a date night with my husband. If I don’t put it in my calendar, I won’t make time for it. And the act of putting it in my calendar makes me consider whether or not that activity is a priority for me in the first place. We mompreneurs don’t have time to waste!
