Sure, you can walk and chew gum at the same time, but can you work and parent and still be happy? Time sickness is the belief that time is always slipping away, that there is never enough of it, and that you must go faster and faster to keep up. Moms can get both physically ill as well as suffer time sickness when trying to balance work, life and family.. While working on her video game 'Perception' and caring for four children (including one toddler and one infant), Amanda Gardner HAD to learn to be flawless with her time management to insure the success of her debut game, in addition to being there for her family. The strategies she used helped free her from the constraints of not having too many hours in the day, and not enough energy to push through. She hopes to share her ideas to help elevate the wellbeing of moms everywhere.
We encourage everyone to join us this summer to learn about a variety of topics. Innovation Women members, non-members, men and women are welcome to join!
