Laura Vanderkam interview The Home Hour podcast

Do you ever find yourself wondering, come Sunday evening, “What happened to the weekend?”

(And did you know that if you live to be 80, you’ll only have 4000 weekends – total! – to fill in your lifetime?)

Laura Vanderkam, author of 168 Hours: You Have More Time Than You Think*, wants to help you reclaim those hours between Friday evening and Monday morning. In today’s episode we talk about her ebook What The Most Successful People Do On The Weekend, and Laura gives some great advice for making the most of your weekend with a little planning and striking the right balance between relaxation and adventure.

Also on today’s show: Managing Editor Sarah Powers takes over the “host” role and interviews me about my upcoming ebook, Beyond Baby: A Week-By-Week Guide To Creating A Life You Love When Your Kids Aren’t So Little, which launches on May 1!  

I share a sneak peek at what’s inside the book, as well as the background behind why I wrote it, and how to know if you’re “Beyond Baby.”
