Stop Chasing Weekends

Find the right work–life balance and win your life back!

“This book is not just about me – it’s about every woman.” – Maja Golob

Stop Chasing Weekends, Maja Golob

STOP CHASING WEEKENDS is a life-changing book for women, struggling with balancing career and personal life, without energy or time left to spend with the people they love or to do the things they enjoy.
It is the unfiltered, inspiring real-life story of a woman who wanted it all – a career, a family, and personal freedom – but lost herself along the way. It’s a story about her escape from the corporate world, about the challenges of entrepreneurship and the traps of success that in her case led to burnout.  It’s about her search for happiness in all the wrong places until she finds it in the most unexpected one. The truth will knock you off your feet!

Leading by her own example, Maja gives hope and encourages us to start putting ourselves at the top of our priority list.  Each chapter ends with questions for reflection to help you create a step-by-step plan leading towards a healthy work-life balance and the life you have always dreamed about.

The book has touched the hearts of thousands of women and become a national bestseller.

Stop Chasing Weekends: read the book, change your life, and make EVERY DAY count!

Interested in why readers love the book?

Please check out a few readers' reviews:

“When you reach the middle of your life, you start reflecting on the past and plan for the other half still lying ahead of you. You read and try to find answers or hints regarding your future life plans. Maja’s book was for me – an eager reader – a fresh surprise. In this book, you do not get the insight you can find in yoga, spirituality and biochemistry, but you encounter rock solid values that can support you, help you love yourself, make you aware of all the good around and in you. This all comes with a consistent message: also in such a quest discipline is important, and the book guides you with grace and discipline towards your true objectives. Really worth the experience!”

I loved it, I read it without stopping. A story is impressive for most women, which is good because the reader always identifies herself with the main character and reading the book leads to a fresh sense of empowerment, which she might be lacking. I especially like the last part, that so nicely covers the nonmaterial aspects of life and gives us lots of food for thought… I sincerely hope women find a ray of light within it and transform it into their own light, one that leads to happiness. Thank you for sharing your story with the world!”

 SOUL BOOK ●  Every entrepreneur / wife / mother / all-in-one-superwoman comes to the point in life where she meets herself and starts questioning her life. How to set boundaries, what are her priorities, how to cater to the needs of clients and family, and in between try to live her own life. Your book travelled with me to New York. I read it on the subway, in Central Park, while having coffee in Starbucks…. I just couldn’t put it down until it was finished. It touched me deeply and made me cry. I got answers to some of the questions that had long been bothering me. I won’t wait for weekends any longer, I promise. #respect

“I could say that I got your book almost at the ‘last minute’. I am also a workaholic and your story reminded me of where my behaviour could lead if I keep living like that and showed me how I could help myself. I would like to thank you for sharing your personal experience with us and for all practical tips for achieving a better work–life balance that you provided us with.” 

–  Sanja Kneževič, Slovenia

“An honest story that attracts the reader’s attention on the very first page and keeps it till the very last. Like the intimate confession of a friend, yet so much more as it warmly empowers the reader to develop her/his inner strength and follow her/his personal mission. Congratulations to the author for having found the wisdom in the most critical moments to realise what was going on, and to make a step in the right direction. That’s why I think men should also read it.”

Sonja Klopčič, Slovenia

“The lessons Maja highlights throughout her book made me think about myself – if I want to be truly fulfilled, I need to take care of myself first. A must-read for any woman who wants to take back her true girl power.” 

Natalie Margaret Nicholls, United Kingdom

“In “Stop Chasing Weekends”, Maja reveals her life story while selflessly sharing tips on how to find happiness. It can be read as an interesting story about a young, successful businesswoman, a mother, a woman with longings, highs and lows, fears and the search for happiness. But it can also be used as a step-by-step guide to improve the quality of our lives. Because each of us gets lost once in a while. In a very structured way and through an interesting story, Maja helps the reader to focus the mind on a single goal: to find her/his own path to inner peace and happiness. The author says this book is for women only, but I say that it’s universal and timeless.”

Barbara Modic, Slovenia

“Maja Golob’s book is at once profound and yet also a practical and easy-to-follow guide. I loved the sincere description of the high and lows of Maja’s life, and the way she has faced her difficulties. I also loved her sincere gratitude for the gifts life has given her, and I’m sure that reading about it can be an example for us all. Her description of the work she has done on herself, her tenacity and the exercises she suggests can all be easily followed and bring considerable results. I am grateful for the very clear reminder that crafting our life is both a choice and an art. An art sometimes shaped by difficult experiences and sad events. Thank you Maja!”
