As a creative entrepreneur, I used to FIGHT – tooth and nail – organizing and planning. I thought it would devalue my creative freedom.
After struggling with procrastination, time management and lack of planning, I knew something had to change. I had three small kids and a minimal amount of time to get the most important things done in my business. I didn’t have time to waste on busy work and tasks that weren’t moving my business forward and filling my bank account.
This 283 page planner changed everything!
The Mindful Maker Business Planner is a weekly, monthly and yearly calendar system, goal-setting planner and mindfulness tracker to help creative makers stay focused, stay motivated and develop a business that truly contributes to your well-being.
The best thing about it is that it takes very little time to make it work.
I’m a busy mom to three littles and my goal was to create a system that didn’t overwhelm me or take too much time away from my family.
I kept this planner minimal; including just what’s needed to increase your productivity and revenue. Who has hours to fill out a planner each day? Not me!
It’s simple, repetitive and it works.
