FREE ASSESSMENT: What Is Your Primary Burnout Trigger?GET STARTED


Hello professional moms and dads!  I’m delighted you’ve found our little corner of the internet!  Before you start poking around, I just wanted to give you a little tour of what we have here so you can get the most out of your experience as possible.

I know you’re busy, and you don’t have any time to waste.

Let’s dive in!


First of all, let me introduce myself.

My name is Sarah Argenal, and I’m the Founder of the Working Parent Resource.

My goal is to offer common-sense solutions for modernambitious professionals who are raising a young family and are struggling to balance everything they have going on in their lives.

If that sounds like you, welcome!  I want you to enjoy your life as a working parent, and I just hope to share reliable resources, trusted insights, practical training programs, and unwavering support so you can find what works best for you and your family.

I’m a working mom myself, so I can really relate to your struggles, your challenges, and your dreams.

If you’re interested in getting to know more about me, here’s My Story.



The Working Parent Resource is a place where we help modern, high-achieving professionals who are raising a young family flourish both at home and at work without sacrificing one area of their life over the other.  Below is a list of all of the resources we offer.  It’s sort of a “choose your own adventure” style, so you can get support where you need it.



You’ll often hear to me referring to the people I work with as “modern, high-achieving professionals raising a young family.”  Here are the main characteristics I am referring to.  If this sounds like you, you’re in the right place!

  • You’ve worked hard to get to where you are in your career. You’ve spent years, maybe even decades, mastering your craft and a huge part of your identity and life purpose is reflected in the work you do. Work isn’t a punishment – it’s something you truly enjoy and receive fulfillment from (at least most of the time… we all have our days!).

  • Your job is demanding. You require intense focus, creativity, innovation and attention to do your job well. At times your career requires excessive hours and commitment, leaving other parts of your life to suffer.

  • You’re working in the “new world” where technology is a blessing and a curse. The days of the standard “9-5” workday are over. You have some flexibility in your job, but you have a hard time disconnecting from work or your devices when you’re away from the office because you’re expected to be available whenever something comes up.

  • You have trouble being present in the moment. You feel pressure to do it all, and to do it all well, but it’s overwhelming you. Your plate is overflowing with both opportunities and obligations, and you’ve lost the ability to filter through it all. You just put your head down and work harder and faster, but you never catch up.

  • You have a family you love who often doesn’t get enough of your time and energy. You want to be there for your kids more, and you miss that close connection you used to have with your spouse, but you’re having a hard time figuring out how to fit everything in. 

  • You have difficulty prioritizing your mental and physical health. You often feel run down, exhausted, cranky or impatient. You know you should do more to care for yourself (and it would feel so good!), but there’s just not enough time.

  • You’re overly responsible and achievement-oriented. It’s hard for you to give up, admit you’re struggling, or ask others for help. You’re convinced you can do it, so you just keep pushing harder and working faster, but all that does is lead to burnout. 

If this describes you, stick around… the Working Parent Resource was designed specifically for you.



Before you dive in, I just wanted to give a quick shout-out to you DADS out there!  There are a lot of resources out there for moms, but I want you to know that I see you too.  I see you working hard to be involved with your kids, to support your partner, and to be an engaged member of your community.

Modern parenthood is tricky, and I know it can be hard for you too.  If you’re looking for a little guidance as well, we’re here for you.  You’re a critical part of your developing family as well as a contributor to the workforce, and I want you to have the support and information you need to thrive in both areas as well.



The Working Parent Resource is a free resource for you and your family.  It doesn’t cost you anything to take advantage of just about everything we offer.  Here are some of the options you currently have available at no cost to you:


I’m a knowledge junkie, and creating a better life for working parents is my favorite subject.  I’ve read, researched, and listened to literally thousands of different sources of information on the topics working parents care about most.  I know how overwhelming this can all be, so I’ve curated the best stuff for you.  If it’s mentioned on our Resources pages, it’s WPR Approved!



We have a Burnout Assessment you can take to identify the true, underlying reasons why you’re struggling to manage your daily life in a fulfilling and healthy way.  The assessment takes less than 5 minutes to complete, and you’ll receive instant results as well as a customized report that offers tips, exercises and additional resources to move beyond burnout in your life.

What Is Your Primary Burnout Trigger?

Are you addicted to podcasts yet?  I used to read like a maniac… and then I became a working mom and no longer have the same kind of down-time I used to have. I still read whenever I can, but these days I learn and get entertained by a variety of wonderful (and free!) podcasts throughout my day.  And now there’s one more available for you too: the Working Parent Resource Podcast.

Learn how other working parents are managing the juggle, and get reliable information from reputable experts about managing working parenthood… all while you’re taking care of other things in your life.  We cover topics such as time management, life balance, marriage and relationships, parenting, child development, self care, self development, transitions…. and much more!  Listen (and subscribe!) on iTunes and Stitcher now.

Sign up now to receive your first exercise.



We also have blog articles dedicated to providing you with clarity and guidance about creating a healthy balance between work, family, and the rest of your life.  You’ll also receive actionable steps you can take to implement what you learn into your life today.  You can find everything on the Blog page, but I’ll be giving you a few articles to start with below, so just keep reading.

We are also now accepting contributions from guest writers who would like to be featured on our website.  If you’re interested in submitting an article to be featured, here are our writer’s guidelines. We’d love to hear from you!




In addition to our free resources, we also offer a suite of online coaching programs and courses designed to meet your immediate needs.  Everything is part of our Frazzled to Balanced™ Series, dedicated to helping modern, high-achieving parents flourish both at work and at home.

  • Frazzled to Balanced™ Affiliate Program:  We love to collaborate with other professionals who also support working parents.  We typically partner with HR Professionals, Therapists, Coaches, Teachers, Recruiters, and Medical Professionals.  We’d love to chat with you about how we can work together to support your community as well.
  • Frazzled to Balanced™ Mastermind Group:  A 6-week group coaching program specifically for high-achieving professionals who are finally ready to reclaim control of their life.  This program is designed to help you identify the source of your most difficult struggles, develop a strategy to make lasting changes, and provide customized support as you improve your life in areas such as time management and productivity, relationships, parenting, and self care.  Mastermind groups are offered a few times a year and are filled by application only as space is limited.
