Time Management for Moms 101

UPDATE: The webinar went great and you can watch the recorded event for free: Time Management for Moms 101. Look for the chat and video icons in the top right corner after the recording starts to view everything.

I'm am so very excited to announce that Michele Quigley of Family Centered Press is going to be giving a FREE webinar: Time Management for Moms on Thursday May 14, 2009 at 11:00 Eastern time. Should be awesome so make sure to register and write it in your planner.

If you don't know Michele (if that is possible), she produces those ever-so-lovely planners for Catholic moms, dads, and students. We all use them here at my house and I highly recommend them. Though, you do need to order them early. Michele only prints so many since they're date sensitive and they seem to go fast since they're so beautiful as well as functional.

Michele is also co-author of the free Catholic Charlotte Mason curriculum Mater Amabilis. Thank you Michele for all that you do!

Now, for the sound bite on Michele's free webinar:

Effective time management is the key to getting the most out of your day and avoiding burnout. As moms we have an office that never closes and an inbox that never empties, whether we work outside the home or not.

Michele will share her strategies for prioritizing tasks, overcoming procrastination, improving concentration and dealing with frequent distractions.

I am the poster child for someone that needs Michele's advice!!! I'm looking forward to her webinar. BTW, your math and science webinar was spectacular!

Thank you so much for the BTW. I was just sitting here this second planning on redoing the math and science webinar. I didn't feel I did a good enough job and then there were audio problems. Maybe it's okay as it stands?

Michele's webinar will be awesome -- I really need her advice too!

I have not viewed it again--is the audio a problem for the recorded version? I lost all audio for the last 5 min or so and no one else seemed to--and it was when you were plugging my site! (Thanks so much.)

Do you think you left some things out, or are you just concerned about the technical difficulties?

I picked up The Number Devil at a library book sale for $1 this weekend--I was so excited.

I had this whole really cool thing to say about Faith and Reason and then when I got to that part of the talk I realized I forgot to print out my notes and got totally flustered.

You'll love Number Devil. It's a fun book and my kids begged to have it read. It'd be nice if it were the Number Angel, but hey if it gets my kids excited about math I'll take it as it is.

And on the audio, I haven't watched all the way through but it appears the audio is iffy at the very beginning and then gets way better. Once I stopped the video it saved on bandwidth and so the audio picked up after that.

I just bought a new headset with a way better mic. Also, I'm going to schedule my future webinars (not counting the upcoming organization one) on afternoons so I can use the library internet.

I'm so far out in the country so we don't have cable. Because of our massively tall trees we have a 20-foot tower on our roof and still the internet goes down for seconds and minutes at a time.

Kris said...

Being way out in the country is worth it, though!

Did your piece on Faith and Reason include a quote from Steno, perhaps, besides something from the encyclical?

I had tech difficulties of my own setting my comments to go to the Attendees instead of Participants so I don't think you saw that I am reading (listening, actually) to Seashells on the Mountain, too.
