Get Buttoned Up – The Key to Finding More Time in Your Day

What’s your typical day like? Do you feel like you’re stuck on a treadmill going slightly too fast? Always wishing there were more hours in the day? How about your priorities – do you feel like they’re getting tended to, or are you always putting out fires, one step behind?

Today Alicia and Sarah discuss that elusive thing we ALL want more of: time and specifically, how to get more of it.

Listen in as the Get Buttoned Up co-hosts sit down with two women who have a unique perspective on this issue. Their first guest is Laura Vandekam, the author of 168 Hours: you have more time than you think, who shares ideas you can use to find and reclaim pockets of “lost” time. Then a little later they check in with Leah Busque, founder and CEO of, an online service that connects you with others in your community who can do tasks for you, like grocery shopping or taking that bag of clothes to Goodwill.

Since delegating is also a core principle of Buttoned Up, Sarah and Alicia will cover the key factors of enlisting the help of others effectively and highlight the mistakes to avoid. They’ll also help you strengthen your own delegating muscle in this week’s “Challenge.”

So, if you’ve recently wished you had more hours in the day, this is a show you won’t want to miss. It’s time to stop reacting to everything else and take control of your time so that you spend your time and energy on what you think is important, not what everyone else says is urgent.
