Today's guest is Laura Vanderkam. She's the author of several time management productivity books, and her TED Talk garnered over 13 million views. Her newest book, Tranquility by Tuesday, gives us nine ways to calm the chaos and make time for what matters most.  In today's podcast episode, you are going to learn how to look at your time in weeks, in the 168 hours you have in a week, versus your days. This allows us to prioritize the things that are most important to us, make meaningful memories and take time for ourselves. Laura also shares the research and data behind her nine rules for time management, and provides tangible ways we can upgrade our lives by being more intentional with our time. When you think about women who have multiple hats to wear, whether they're at their job or with their family life and friends, it’s easy to become reactive throughout the day. Taking control of your schedule and living the life that you want to is so important to so many of us, and yet we don't have the tools to do it. I love everything that Laura teaches and I'm so excited to have her on the show to give us what we want most, and that is time.
