Oak Creek resident's book focuses on work, family
Oak Creek resident Jenny Lewis recently published the e-book "Have it All: You Can Balance Work and Family."
In the book, Lewis shares her experiences with balancing work and family, according to a news release.
In the book, she writes, "Though my coaching (and this e-book) is dedicated to helping working parents find balance, it's important to realize that this does not mean a clean 50/50 split for work and family. It ebbs and flows, and that's natural and OK. … What's important is to be able to … find the split that works for whatever phase of life you and your family are currently experiencing."
Each chapter is followed by self-coaching exercises that guide working parents to achieve their own work-family balance, according to the release.
Lewis is a master certified professional coach, instructional coach, educator and mother of two. She owns New Frontiers Life Coaching and New Frontiers Education Coaching in Oak Creek.
