Episode 18: Time Momagement: How To Better Manage Your Time as a Working Mom Without the Overwhelm, with Marisa Lonic of Mama Work It

In this week’s Episode 18 of the Confessions of a Working Mom Podcast I am chatting with Marisa Lonic, founder of Mama Work It, who focuses on time-saving tips for busy mamas and time management even when we think that we can’t possibly fit in another routine or item on our to-do lists.

Marisa makes Time Management for busy moms easier to grasp, and shares her tips and tricks in her book, “Time Momagement.”

In this episode we dive into letting go of perfection in motherhood and being intentional with our time as moms so we can accomplish our goals. Because as moms, our goals are important. Our goals matter, and Marisa gives moms some great tips that actually do not take much time each day to implement.

We also talk about how as moms we must believe in our worthiness of doing things we want to do for ourselves.

As a mom who is continuously searching for time management tips that I can actually implement into my life, this conversation was a real eye-opener for some tangible ways we can start to in Marisa’s words, “Balance your own ambition and wanting to be a kick-ass mom.”

We wrap up the conversation talking about what it means to tend to your own goals and desires as a working mom. “When you feel good, you do good,” says Marisa.

That couldn’t be a truer statement! Take the time for you, mama, because once you do, you’ll realize how much you truly needed that time in order to balance the other areas of your life as mom, spouse, daughter, friend, the list goes on.

I hope you enjoy this episode and remember to take time for you this holiday season, mama.

I had a dream after my daughter was born (she just turned 5!) to create a life and career that I love, while being present for my family.

I didn’t think that as working moms we should have to choose between having a career we love and an engaged and present family life.

The Working Mom Collective Blog was created out of my dream, and now I’ve taken it a step further and put the Confessions of a Working Mom Podcast out into the world!

My mission has become to help other working moms pursue their dreams, whatever they may look like (I’m not judging – You have to do what makes YOU happy mama!)

If I can reach just one other mama and show her there is a better way to pursue your career goals while raising your family, then I will consider myself successful.

Now let’s tackle this sometimes hectic, but AMAZING journey of working motherhood together!


RocketBook Smart Reusable Notebook – Organize all of your Goals for 2021!

I discovered the RocketBook Smart Reusable Notebook this year, after realizing I have a severe addiction to notebooks. I mean, I have notebooks of every shape, color and size lying around my house. The RocketBook smart erasable notebook solves a few problems: clutter and organization. I just write my notes in the notebook, scan them into the RocketBook app on my iPhone, then send them directly to my Google Drive, Email or Trello Board. My notes are then all in one place! Amazon has the RocketBook smart reusable notebook on special today for $27.66, down from $34.00. This is a great deal!

Also check out their Panda Planner version – That’s next on my list to try out! It’s just like the Panda Planner but erasable, so you can upload your planning notes straight to the cloud, organize then erase and start over again the next week.

Find both links below to purchase on Amazon. I do receive a small affiliate commission for these products, but I have personally used and love these smart notebooks from RocketBook, and I know you will too!

Grab Copies of Marisa Lonic’s Book & Journal!

Marisa’s book “Time Momagement” is filled with practical tips and advice laid out in a humorous and relatable way. I highly recommend picking up a copy of this to read (or listen to on Audible!)

Her Journal for moms is fantastic for finally getting those goals and dreams of yours set up in a way that doesn’t make you want to throw up. I get that sometimes goal planners are purchased then sit dormant for the rest of the year, because everything seems so much better in December, when we are dreaming of things and not actually implementing them.

But, according to Marisa, “When you feel good you do good. Being able to get things done as a mom is half planning, half feeling good. And spending a few minutes every night to journal and reflect on your day, actually helps you feel good and plan a better tomorrow. It all goes together. Keep this bad boy on your nightstand and get into the 15-minute-per-night habit of filling out your pages. This process will help you get to know you, boost your daily productivity, and ultimately live your best life.”
