Hey there, it’s time for another Efficiency Bitch Podcast episode!  I’m sitting down with the incredible Sena to talk all about time management and delegation tips for busy moms. 

Sena is an expert at this stuff, and she’s here to spill the beans on how she rocks both her household and business tasks.  She’s all about efficiency, and she’s got some seriously brilliant strategies to share.

So, what’s the secret sauce to Sena’s success? It’s all about eliminating, automating, and delegating tasks.  She knows that to stay on top of things, you’ve gotta let go of some stuff and hand it over to others, whether at home or in business.

But wait, there’s more! Sena’s got some fabulous insights on raising little team players.  She’s all about instilling that “no problem, Mom” attitude in her kids, and guess what? It works wonders!  Plus, she even rewards them with some quality time in the kitchen – cooking together is a special treat for everyone.

Sena Seafoods (pronounced see’ nuh) has a long, long history of fishing. As Sena Wheeler of Sena Seafoods recounts, her grandfather immigrated to the Ballard, Washington from Norway with his brothers and became a commercial fisherman in 1938. They fished using traditional Norwegian longlines, and passed the knowledge to their children, who passed it on again. Their boat logs show the family fished the waters from as far north as Alaska and as far south as Mexico. Sena's father, Art, fished for thirty years, and Sena has fond memories of making trips with him on the Alrita as a teenager. Now in their fifth generation of fishing, the family loves what they do and are contributing the dinner table as well as to the environment. Our hosts received some fishing education in this episode and want to pass it along to the listeners.
