PRESS RELEASE: Stafford woman gains book deal

Stafford life and business coach, Grace Marshall, has been commissioned to write a book entitled ‘21 Ways to Manage the Stuff that Sucks Up Your Time’.

Mother of two Grace, age 31, from Wildwood, is the first UK author to gain a publishing agreement from the US publishers of the ‘21Ways’ book series.

As a business owner and mother to Catherine, aged 3, and Oliver aged 6; Grace had to put her own advice into practice when her publisher challenged her to write her book in just 40 days. She devised a ’40 days of baby steps’ approach to ensure that she met the deadline without compromising time with her family or clients.

Speaking about her approach to writing the book, she says; “As much as I love being a last minute girl, there’s no way I could have written this book overnight – setting small achievable goals has helped me to keep on track.”

As an accredited NLP practitioner and experienced business coach, Grace specialises in helping business owners to make the most of their time through a combination of face-to-face, online and audio coaching. She also runs a Busy Mums Networking group in Stafford which supports other mums who run their own businesses, and shares her tips regularly with nearly 3,000 twitter followers worldwide.

Grace describes herself as “not a naturally organised person” and says that the techniques shared in her book are influenced by years of studying time management and productivity to use in her own life and in her work with her clients.

She adds; “I don’t really like the term ‘time management’- you can’t really manage time. But you can manage your energy, focus, clarity and motivation to make the most of the time that you do have.”

Grace will be running a “Personal productivity” workshop for business owners in Stafford on Thursday 3rd May between 10 am and 2pm. Places can be reserved by visiting Grace’s website at or by emailing
