In today’s episode, Brooks interviews Erin Chase, one of the most productive people we know and a very successful businessperson who helps busy and overwhelmed home chefs learn to spend less money on groceries and get organized in the kitchen. She’s the founder of 5 Dollar Dinners, the author of the $5 Dinner Mom Cookbook series, and has just released a new app called Vonnie, which teaches you to cook in your own kitchen with the help of a live instructor.
We’re not going to be talking about meal planning though – we’re going to talk about how she structures her days, her weeks, and how she stays focused on executing her big ideas while managing her work, her team, and her busy family.
