S1 E6: Productivity for working women

Ladies – what’s going on with your money?

In this episode of the Kati Hyer Show we jump into productivity hacks, balancing work and family, and ask fact or fiction?: “women can have it all.”

Productivity tips discussed in this episode:
1. Wake up early! Get up before everyone else so you have a moment to yourself to think, pray, or just be. I do a quiet time first thing in the morning when I don’t hit the ‘snooze’ button – and it makes all the difference. (Trust me, my kids have told me!)

2. Have boundaries. Don’t check work email while you’re lying in bed or eating dinner. Likewise be present for your organization when you’re at work.

3. Use your email inbox as a to-do list, not a storage bin.

4. Unsubscribe from distractions, so you can keep #3 as a tool that hones your productivity, and doesn’t make you feel like you have to check it during bath time… see #2!
