Today”s mothers wear many different — hats from chauffeur to accountant to cook to chasing away monsters under the bed!  However, with each new role comes less time for mom to find time to keep her life in sync mentally, physically, spiritual and even emotionally.

Christine Martinello, best selling author of “The Momager Guide,”# sat down with Gwinnett Magazinepublisher Kelly Greer to offer advice to Gwinnett County mothers who are finding it hard to fit everything in their daily lives.  The Gwinnett County Chamber of Commerce hosted this annual GLOW Event sponsored by Gwinnett Medical Center.

Martinello, a mother of three, says she realized very early on that she wasn”t handling the momager role very well and began writing the book as a “how to” for herself.

“In 2003, I woke up in the middle of the night in a panic and felt overwhelmed,”#  Martinello said.  “… I didn”t intend to write the momager guide. Instead, I wrote a “how can I do this better” guide for myself.”#

Greer advised moms to support and encourage one another on all fronts, whether a stay-at-home mom or working mom.

“It was so great to hear the voices of women coming together from all different stages of life and saying, “You know we need to help each other out.”#
