I believe that everything in life happens for a reason…
My journey began on 25 February 2012, with an unexpected stroke on a business trip to the US.
It was the catalyst that gave me back my life. You see up until that moment I had not really given much thought to how I was spending my time and living my life.
I am Abigail Barnes, and this life changing event led me to reassess my career choices and the life path that I had been following.
Suddenly my priorities changed I realised that I wanted to spend more time doing what I love with the people that I love.
Then hearing the quote by Oscar Wilde that ‘No man is rich enough to buy back his past’ really summed up for me how valuable and precious our time truly is.
From then on I immersed myself in the entrepreneur world and saw that there were two types of entrepreneurs, those who were overwhelmed and time poor, and those who were successfully managing their time, and getting the freedom that they wanted from their life.
Having identified some of the top strategies for effective Time Management employed by successful Entrepreneurs I was motivated to summaries this valuable information into my first book that I called Time Management for Entrepreneurs.

This is the first time I've been moved to write a book review. I run my own business with about 40 people and time is always short. Written in a lovely, down to earth style, this book gets to the point with some simple great ideas. An hour spent reading will give a great return on time invested. Easy to read, easy to apply.
