Most women entrepreneurs experience the stress of trying to manage running a successful business, whilst at the same time juggling the demands of family life and personal relationships. Author Joanne Ernst’s new book, Time Miracles, is written for the busy woman entrepreneur who is trying to manage the stress of balancing all facets of life that can leave you feeling you are being pulled in multiple directions at the same time.
Combining parenting and work is tricky enough at the best of times, but when it’s your own business there are additional pressures; you’re also responsible for creating the income – there’s no cushion of a regular salary to fall back on! You want to grow your business, but your family need you too and with so many demands on your time it seems just so hard to find the right balance. Managing your time intentionally and effectively is crucial – not just for your stress levels, but also for your income and wellbeing. Joanne Ernst’s new book, Time Miracles, will show you how to get organised, leverage your time more, find that elusive balance and effectively do the things you need to do. She brings her extensive experience as an executive coach and former project manager to create a highly practical book that is a special blend of project management strategies and coaching insights. Time Miracles will accelerate your effectiveness and success whilst also calming the chaos – so take a deep breath and dive in!
“Life is incredibly precious and we can choose to cherish and enjoy it. We can also rush through it stressed, grumpy and tearing our hair out - it doesn’t matter; the time is going to pass either way. We all get the same 24 hours - it’s how we use them that makes the difference”
“You are infinitely more productive when you are relaxed and focused, working your plan proactively. This is a world away from being stuck in a stressful cycle of reacting and constant troubleshooting, trying to multitask and worrying about what you might have forgotten….”
"Finding balance is an ongoing journey - it’s not something you can fix once and be done with. However, there are some key steps you can take to look after your own sense of calm and inner peace. With those in place, life immediately starts to run a little more smoothly. It’s okay to have some time off, in fact it’s a necessity”

Why LoA loves it….
If there is something that all women entrepreneurs who are also parents probably share, it’s often that feeling of being completely overwhelmed, trying to do too much in order to keep all the balls in the air, and inevitably dropping the occasional ones when it all get’s too much. If all of that resonates with you, then Joanne Ernst’s new book, Time Miracles, is the perfectly timed read for you. She takes a really pragmatic approach, from someone who has clearly been there and got the T-Shirt, to effectively running a business whilst at the same time putting a plan in place to manage the rest of family and personal life in a more balanced way. This is not only a refreshingly practical read, but one that is genuinely written from an empathetic place with a huge amount of personal experience to back it up. A must-read book for all ‘mompreneurs’ on a mission to make life a little less stressful! --- Melanie Hawken, founder and editor-in-chief of Lionesses of Africa
