    Launch Your Teens Podcast EPISODE 7
    Title: The Surprising Way to Achieve More While Doing LESS (Part 1)
    (10 min.)
    We've all had those days. You have a mountain of work in front of you that you genuinely want to get done, but you find yourself procrastinating. Struggling to focus. Failing to get tasks completed.
    What's the problem? It's probably not that your time management system has failed. It's probably not that there “just aren’t enough hours in the day.” Instead, you're far more likely to be suffering from a crisis of energy. You may have drained all your energy by running yourself too fast and too hard for too long, and you're long overdue for replenishment.
    The good news? It's fixable.
    Today's episode is a must listen for both parents and students ages 12–26. Listen in the car on the way to soccer practice!
    In this episode, you’ll learn:
    1. How a simple kitchen timer helped a university student to invent a productivity method that is still in use around the world today.
    2. How to find an online quiz, designed by a medical doctor, that will tell you which of 7 types of rest you are likely low in. Correct your particular rest deficit, and you'll be able to replenish energy and—as a result—significantly increase productivity and overall life and work satisfaction.

Nadine, Pea Ridge Ar ,

Loved the book! Ready to listen to more!

Loved her book! Looking forward to more great information on the college process with no college loan debt.

Mom of Strongwilled Teens ,

HOPE for families at ALL income levels!

This podcast is for parents with kids ages 12-26.

Who knew that there were so many ways to get college paid for BESIDES just getting scholarships and financial aid and saving money in advance?!?! The two best things about this podcast are 1) the host’s fantastic credentials for telling us these things (see episode 1 first) and 2) the increasing hope you feel every single time you listen. Listen to just episode 1 and see what you think.
