Called Pink Shoe Power, it introduces Time Management Styles to help women—and business in general—be happier and more productive.

It’s not just about saving wasted money. It’s about saving wasted chunks of life!

Millions of dollars are wasted each year through poor time management. Now two Australian women believe they have achieved a break-through to help other women not only save time—but remove a major cause of stress in their lives.

Businesswomen and work-life balance champions, Jayne Jennings & Valerie McDougall, today launched their book Pink Shoe Power to assist women discover their Time Management Style for success in business & life.

"It’s not just about saving wasted money. It’s about saving wasted chunks of life!" Ms McDougall said.

"Too many women feel stressed and time-poor working in and outside the home.

"After extensive research in the work-life balance sphere we knew that good time management was a key to having more balance and enjoying your life while you achieve what you want.

‘"There are so many tools and strategies out there—so why don’t they work for all of us? " she continued.

‘We had tried different systems that worked for others—but not for us.

"Not all shades of red work suit a woman—so why do we think time management is a one-size fits all commodity?

"That was when we recognised that while we did operate differently, we couldn’t find something definitive that would allow a woman to discover her time management style and know the strategies and tools that would work for her," Ms McDougall stated.

"We sought out an expert with complementary skills and expertise in that area and were delighted to get the input of Clare Evans, UK coach and author of Time Management for Dummies. And so the Pink Shoe Power Time Management Styles were born," she said.

"Yes, we are trying to be humorous with the name but the fun element helps you remember and learn," Ms McDougall added.

They developed a sophisticated online tool to help women discover their style and are giving free access to it. The book introduces these styles and the strategies and tools that work best for each. It’s currently available as an ebook at
