Today’s interview is with an entrepreneur that has proven that anyone can have a thriving business without sacrificing time with your family.
Grace Marshall is a life coach, a business coach and is the author of a great little book called “21 Ways to Manage the Things That Suck Up Your Time”. Grace’s book is one of a series of “21 ways” books. You can check out the review of her book I did a couple of weeks ago here on my blog here.
Grace lives in Stafford England and has two small children. She says that she isn't a naturally organized person. When Grace got her book deal she had a deadline of 40 days to get it to the publisher. There is nothing like telling the whole world your good news to make yourself accountable. She then had to figure out just how she could get it all done.
I think you are going to love this interview as much as I did.
Here's the video.
Be sure to stop by Grace's website here where you can find her free email series “Dream to Done”.
Grace says that “Someday is a safe place to hide your dreams”. Grace shares with us the 3 essential ingredients needed to get from dream to done.They are definition, deadline and demand.
You can find her book here on here on Amazon: “21 Ways to Manage the Stuff that Sucks Up Your Time“.

She is really quite amazing. I stumbled on her book online, and after doing a book review, I set up the interview. I also liked her fireman analagy. It sure gets you thinking doesn’t it? I think I am going to order several of the other books in the series.
I haven’t forgotten about the discussion we had a while back about my interviews and a book. I will email you about that. Thanks for stopping by!
I liked Grace’s comment that “when you actually put things into motion, that’s when things happen,” in reference to her submitting a proposal to write her book.
It’s amazing that she only had a 40 day deadline to write her book, and yet she was able to break the writing down into small, manageable parts to meet the deadline.
I liked her suggestion (for us real estate investors) to be like a professional fireman and to be prepared for the fire before it happens. I should know how I am going to respond to something before the unexpected event happens.
I also thought that Grace’s English accent made the interview additionally fun to listen to.
