Beth Blecherman Interview on Balancing Work and Family, Partnered Post…
Did you know that 40% of households with children are supported mainly by the mother? That’s what a recent Pew study showed – that it’s becoming more common for mothers to be the breadwinners in the family. I know several women that are the sole providers for their families or that make more than their husbands do. Honestly, I can’t imagine it. I’m so exhausted being a stay-at-home mom that I wouldn’t know how to swing a full-time secular career as well like Beth Blecherman does.
Beth, the founder of TechMamas.com and author of My Parent Plan, successfully balances parenting of her three children and working to support the family. I happen to know Beth personally, since we live in the same area, and she always seems to have it together. I’ve often wondered how she does it. Well, I got the chance to find out in a formal interview.
The ten minutes I spent with Beth were well-worth it. The points she gave on using technology to save your sanity were fantastic!
Wasn’t she great? I was only talking with her on the phone and she couldn’t see me at all! I personally appreciated the tip to break things down as if in little buckets. I tend to look at everything I have to do, get overwhelmed, and then not be able to do anything. Having the support of the family by ‘buying in’ and being flexible were great pieces of advice as well. I’ve only had a chance to read the first chapter but her book also covers topics such as:
- How to create a “Parent Plan.”
- Stay connected through the cloud.
- Remember things with digital notes.
- Learn short-cuts for time saving.
- Clear chaos with a family calendar.
How do your keep your life under control? Could you benefit from any of Beth’s advice using Microsoft 365?
