Lose the Cape is a podcast series that focuses on time management for busy moms. You can listen along as they interview prominent mom bloggers, authors, and writers. I am so inspired by each episode! I feel like I'm sitting at the kitchen table with mom friends!
They have a GREAT website, too, with lots of resources, articles, and ideas for busy moms. “We believe it’s important to support each other as moms, no matter what our choices. Part of that support is providing resources, tips, tools, downloads, ebooks, printables, and whatever else we can gather to help make your life easier while you MOM.”
They even have an anthology by and for moms! (It's one of my favorites!) I'm a BIG fan! You will be too!
