Pour Into Yourself First So You're Able To Pour Into Others'

Jessica’s keen insights into maximizing time and practicing self-care makes her one of the nation’s premiere experts on time and productivity. Audiences are equipped with practical tips and solutions to use the time effectively.  Using real-world insights, stories and research, Jessica encourages men and women to pursue a satisfied life amidst the responsibilities of work, family, home and self-care.

Recently, Jessica released her new book, “Stretched Too Thin: How Working Moms Can Lose the Guilt, Work Smarter, and Thrive.”  Working mothers constantly battle the pull to do all the things well. From managing work and home responsibilities to being impacted by a lack of self-care and time for deep friendships, the struggle is real. At the end of each day, many working moms are exhausted and stretched too thin. But this does not have to be the norm.

In her latest practical and inspiring book, Jessica Turner shows the working mom how to; work and parent guilt-free, establish clear work boundaries, set achievable goals, discover more flexibility, develop home management solutions, prioritize self-care, invest in her marriage, cultivate deeper friendships and feel like a good mom, even while working.  Full of compassion and encouragement, Stretched Too Thin will empower women with useful insights and tools to thrive as working moms.

Turner and her husband, Matthew, live in Nashville, Tenn., with their silly 10-year-old son Elias, spunky 7-year-old daughter, Adeline, and 4-year-old son, Ezra.

She enjoys connecting with other moms in social media (especially on Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest). You can also find her writing on (in)courage and HuffPost Parents.

In this episode, Nick talks with Jessica about living a satisfied life as a working mom, building a brand and taking care of yourself.

Learn all about Jessica and what's next for her.
