Edit Your Life Episode 130: Stretched Too Thin

When author Jessica Turner surveyed over 2,000 working moms about the pain points in their lives, the phrase that kept coming up was “stretched too thin.” As a working mom she certainly identified with that feeling, and out of those data and her own experience came her new book Stretched Too Thin: How Workings Moms Can Lose the Guilt, Work Smarter and Thrive (Revell, September 2018). In Episode 130 of the Edit Your Life podcast, I interview Jessica about the power of intentionality, the invisible-but-real burden of emotional labor (and what to do about it), the connection between risk and goal-setting, and the simple fact that everyone, no matter how busy, deserves to thrive.
