059: Having it all; Career, Kids and Contentment | Sarah Argenal

It is possible to find meaning and purpose and peace as a powerful mom and professional

[Sarah Argenal]

Having a successful career takes energy, drive and determination. Long hours, a heavy work load and the pressure to say yes to everything can be overwhelming. But when you become a parent and throw children into the mix, combining work and parenthood can start to really swamp you. But you don’t want to give either up.

In today’s episode of Mum-to-Mum Monday you’ll discover a way through that fog. Because it’s possible to be committed, not only to your family, but to keeping your career alive.

My guest today is SuperMum, Sarah Argenal.

Sarah and her husband, Joey live in San Diego, California. They have a 3 year old boy Beckett, and are expecting their second son in June. After becoming a mum, Sarah found the demands of working in Corporate Litigation alongside juggling family life to be exhausting and overwhelming. So she started a futile quest for help and information. But there was nothing out there.

She knew that something had to change, if not only for herself, but for the many other corporate parents who wanted to keep a firm foothold in both worlds.  After hundreds of hours of research, Sarah created her own support system and founded the Working Parent Resource.

Sarah offers her community of like-minded working mums and dads reliable information and practical training to help them successfully manage their career and home life. Her Frazzled to Balanced™ Bootcamp “helps ambitious working parents slow down and reclaim their time so they can focus on what matters most.”

Today Sarah shares her journey of navigating her corporate career; keeping her relationships alive and her home life happy; and being the best mum she can possibly be. All whilst helping other parents figure out how to have it all too. 

I’m delighted to have Sarah on my show today as she’ll teach you how to manage your time, conserve your energy; take time out to recharge and focus on you; AND achieve a happy balance between home and work.

Thanks ‘Hakenvisual’, I appreciate it.

“I love this podcast. I listen to it when my little one has his morning nap and the other two have left for school. It’s my ME-time with a cup of coffee and peace and quiet- time to get inspired by amazing people and to map out a path for myself beyond motherhood. Thanks Lisa for all your great work! 😀”
