What a refreshing read!! As a family man with 3 children I am one of those people that struggles to find the time for relatively simple tasks.

I’ve read many books and resources around time management but Mike’s work is by far the best material there is out there.

With so many books about time management on the market, do we really need another? The timing of Business Owners Your Family Misses You by Mike Gardner is exceptional.
Now more than ever, a growing number of people are deciding to leave corporate life, take control of their future and start a business venture of their own. They then work harder than they have ever done to ensure that their new venture is successful, and along the way they discover that one of the biggest struggles they face is balancing business and family life.
This book is for you if, like me, you’re a business owner who is constantly trying to balance your business and family commitments in a way that enables you to feel fulfilled and guilt-free.
Mike explains that, like most things in business, time management is simply a process by which you manage all aspects of both your business and family life. Essentially it can be viewed as taking action:
- for the right reason (because it is linked to a goal or objective)
- at the right time (by prioritizing)
- in the right way (by being organized)
You may feel that there just aren’t enough hours in the day to balance both business and family but, in the pages that follow, Mike shows you that there really are ways to make your life more manageable.
Mike shows you how, with a re-evaluation of your goals, a willingness to concentrate on the most important tasks and a few simple tweaks to your schedule, you can find fulfillment without feeling stretched either at work or at home.
Yes, there are many books on the subject of time management on the market, but if you seriously want to balance your business and family life, then do as I do and ensure that Business Owners Your Family Misses you is the one time management book you have on your desk at all times.

I absolutely loved this time management book. Everyone has different things going on in their lives that suck up all their time, that’s why it’s so nice to have a resource catered towards a specific profession — in this case — business owners. I thought the book was really well organized. Mike Gardner goes over the basics of time management and also takes you step by step through the process of evaluating where all your time goes. Being cognizant of what’s happening to your time is key to finding a solution. Then, he illustrates precisely the strategies you can use to reduce stress, make better use of your time, and have more opportunities for family and whatever else is important in your life. I particularly enjoyed the chapter on goal setting and how strategies that worked before just don’t cut it in the modern age. Overall, the book was very on pointColleen Lowe
