Want to know the secret to successfully integrating motherhood, business, homeschooling without feeling guilty on how you spend your time?
Tracy Morgan, a mom of two boys, a Productivity Consultant and Behavior Change Coach, talks to us on the podcast today and she’s on a mission to ensure that purpose-driven moms never have to say “I don’t have time for what matters.”
Tracy says that it all starts with reframing your thoughts about productivity and time management and learning to connect who you are (CEO mindset) with what’s important (results & experiences) and bringing that into your day (actions). She also shares what value-based productivity is, how it helps moms deal with mom guilt, and even teaches our kids the skills they need to excel.
Learn how to cut through the daily clutter, focus on the essential and make steady progress toward better days and bigger dreams with today’s episode.
In This Episode, You’ll Discover:
- how Tracy’s business started after a lightbulb moment when she realized that the life she wanted no longer synced with her new life as a mom
- how she used the skills she had learned over the years in the corporate world to start her business
- how being productive should first start with reframing how you see productivity and time management
- why you should start by knowing what you value in your life in order to know when to say “no” and when to say “yes”
- what value-based productivity is and how it helps moms deal with mom guilt
- why it’s important to consider the different roles you have, connect who you are to what’s important, and bring that into your day

I think that today’s discussion is so important. Moms need to learn that they can find time to do what matters most. They just need to reframe their mindset about productivity so that they can enjoy being in the moment whether they’re spending time with family or running their business.
