This week we are talking with Yvonne Marcus. Yvonne Marcus is a home management expert who teaches tech savvy individuals how to integrate the Agile Framework into their home. After spending 10 years working in operations and project management for a television production company, Yvonne moved from Los Angeles to Asheville, NC with her family.  She enjoys the occasional glass of red wine, gluten free caramel bars, and dancing. Yvonne shares how she was frustrated with having to do #allthethings and incorporating the Agile Framework into her home, making everyone accountable for family goals & projects.

Listen as Yvonne shares: 

  • Being an introverted parent to an extroverted child.
  • Using Agile Framework in your home management.
  • Importance of setting family goals.
  • Incorporating family meetings into your day, week, and month.
  • Using spreadsheets to keep track of family goals.

  • Letting go of micromanaging in the household. 
  • Communicating & sharing the mental load with your partner.
  • Tips on reducing decision fatigue.
