Join me in this one-of-a-kind conversation with Dr. Melanie Wilson as we explore how the two of us are using SkedPal Beta - the new schedule and calendar optimizer.

In this conversation we look at how we have adopted SkedPal to our very different lives.
During the conersation we touch on a number of information sources:

How has the world changed so that life appears to be so much more hectic? Why aren't we coping? Should we be? Are women at a disadvantage due to inherited cultural expectations?
