“If you work a 40 hour work week that’s time blocked, intentional, and prioritized, you can get the same amount of work done with a 60 hour work week that’s unstructured. You really save time when you eliminate distractions and it’s a huge benefit of time blocking."

Have you ever found yourself wondering: how can I get more work done in less time?

We sat down with Claire Holmes— founder of Mama Collaborative—to dig into that question and discover how to implement time blocking into your weekly routine to save you time and energy.

In this episode, we get to hear Claire’s story from captive employee to autonomous business owner, founding Double H Design Co., and creating Mama Collaborative, where she supports working Moms.

We then discuss what exactly time blocking is, why it’s absolutely critical to us working parents, how it works, how to stick to it, and practical tips to get started today. Plus, you can hop over to to watch a supplemental video where Claire walks you through exactly how this looks and works.

We also discuss the amazing new resource Claire has drawn up for working moms, and we share an exclusive discount and sneak peek that is only available to Kenza Pod listeners! Trust us, you don’t want to miss it!
