Elizabeth Grace Saunders is a time management coach and best-selling author who empowers individuals who feel guilty, overwhelmed and frustrated to feel peaceful, confident and accomplished. She helps people struggling with new levels of responsibility after receiving a promotion or becoming a parent, who aren’t meeting expectations at work, or who need better work-life balance to overcome burnout.
After overcoming her own challenges with work-life balance, Elizabeth began doing time management coaching to help others do the same in 2009. Elizabeth has worked with clients on six continents and improved thousands of people’s lives. Her clients not only increase their productivity but also improve their health, reduce anxiety and stress, and have more time to invest in themselves and their relationships.
Elizabeth was named one of the World’s Top 30 Time Management Professionals by Global Gurus every year since 2018 and is a member of Forbes Coaches Council. McGraw Hill published her first book The 3 Secrets to Effective Time Investment: How to Achieve More Success with Less Stress. Harvard Business Review published her second book How to Invest Your Time Like Money. And FaithWords published her third book Divine Time Management. Elizabeth regularly writes time management articles for Harvard Business Review and Fast Company and has appeared on CBS, ABC, NBC, and Fox.
Prior to founding her own business in 2005, Elizabeth worked for Meredith Corporation, the publisher of magazines such as Better Homes and Gardens and Ladies Home Journal, VNU Business Media, and Abbott Laboratories. Elizabeth graduated summa cum laude from Drake University.
When she’s not helping people be less stressed, Elizabeth loves traveling, spending time with friends and family, and swimming!

Overcoming my own struggles with work-life balance inspired me to become a time management coach who empowers people who are frustrated and overwhelmed to achieve work/life brilliance™. Click here to read my story.
Or watch this video to hear me explain to Harvard Business Review the important lesson that I learned from spending 40 days “unplugged” from work:
“Elizabeth has transformed the way I approach time management, opened up hours every day on my calendar, and skyrocketed my productivity. Her coaching has helped me get more done without the stress or the hours that I used to think were required.
She has equipped me with a set of tools and perspectives that raised me to a strategic level and put me in control of my time—something I never thought possible. If that wasn’t enough, Elizabeth is an absolute delight to work with and I’ve enjoyed every minute of it (especially the Action Guides). Hiring Elizabeth was one of the best decisions I made all year long—and I wish I had done it a lot sooner.” – Tim Parkin, President, Parkin Consulting
