Time Management in 20 Minutes a Day
Our surveys have revealed that many people don't start an online business because they think they don't have the time. I think this new book would help them.
I’ve admired and read Holly Reisem Hanna’s blog, The Work At Home Woman for many years. Her information for people working from home is top-notch. I’ve even had the privilege of appearing on her blog a couple of times.
Holly is a mom, a wife and an online business owner who really does it all. Her credibility as a savvy business woman shows in everything she does.
I was excited to learn she was writing a book on time management. With her level of success, I was pretty sure she’d know what she was talking about. I was not disappointed.
The book, Time Management in 20 Minutes A Day: Simple Strategies to Increase Productivity, Enhance Creativity and Make Your Time Your Own delivers on its title.
I saw some parts of my unorganized life unfold on the pages of this book. When things aren’t going smoothly, you just need someone on the outside to have a look in and give you permission to do it differently. This is what Holly does in the book. She completely understands what it means to be successful in business and have meaningful time with your family. She’s had her own time management issues, she’s solved them and we benefit from her experience.
This Book Made Me Change Aspects of My Business
I love to get one good tip that I can implement in my personal or business life from a book. There were ten of them in this book. In fact, one of her strategies on goal setting was so good, Pete and I implemented it this week on one of our blogs.
We run several online businesses and while I’d like to say everything runs smoothly all the time, it’s simply not true. There are times during the year where we’re very busy and other months where we can relax. I run a service business in addition to our other businesses and the project work can have peaks and valleys. Holly’s book showed me how I can deal with those peak times more efficiently by organizing my hours differently.
Keeping a Good Work Life Balance
When Pete and I travel, we’re great at quickly finishing work so we can go out and play. When we're at home for long periods we tend to work slower and drag out our own projects because we don’t have anything pressing. Holly has the fix for this!
You Can Work From Home and Keep Your Day Job
If you’re still working a 9-5 job and trying to find time to work from home part-time, this book will help you organize your life and your hours so you can do both. It’s concise and doesn’t waste your time which I really appreciated.
The Perfect Apps and Resources for Your Situation
Holly has listed the perfect apps and resources you need to execute her ideas. She puts them in the chapters themselves and gives you a big list at the end. It was an immediate cure for some of the overwhelm I get when I’m really busy. There’s an app for that!
You have to put the work in, but it is possible to streamline your life and work and get the best out of every day.
I loved reading Time Management in 20 Minutes A Day: Simple Strategies to Increase Productivity, Enhance Creativity and Make Your Time Your Own. This is a book I would recommend to anyone who is trying to do it all and needs serious organizational help.
