What is a family manager? If you are a mom, I bet you can claim the title.
Kathy Peel, who is known as “America’s Family Manager,” wrote a creed for
all you moms out there. It goes like this:
I oversee the most important organization in the world –
Where hundreds of decisions are made daily
Where property and resources are managed
Where health and nutritional needs are determined
Where finances and futures are discussed and debated
Where projects are planned and events are arranged
Where transportation and scheduling are critical
Where team-building is a priority
Where careers begin and end
I am a Family Manager.
In her book, The Family Manager Takes Charge, Kathy encourages women to see that running a household is no small task. How many of these jobs do you do around the house and for your family?
