Working moms: are you stressed, anxious, and tired of hearing about this mythical thing called “balance?” You aren’t alone, and you’ve come to the right place. In Episode 29 of The Mom Hour Voices, Meagan talks to Jessica Turner, full-time working mom and author of the new book Stretched Too Thin: How Working Moms Can Lose The Guilt, Work Smarter, and Thrive. This encouraging interview will help you move past the unreasonable idea of “work-life balance” and make choices that help you set priorities while still attending to the things in your life that matter.
