Setting yourself up to live your best life in the new year isn’t something reserved for New Year’s Eve — if you want the best chance of reaching your personal and professional goals after the ball drops, you need to start planning much earlier.

Think JULY. Well, for me it was July. 😉 

If that seems daunting, have no fear! — I’m here to tell you about some specific resources that you can use to take your planning to its ultimate potential. I’d also like to share with you my own annual planning schedule: when I start, what I focus on, and how I implement in order to get the results that I want to see! Let’s go behind the scenes.

My secret? My planning process aligns with my company’s core values — this way, I can achieve big impact while staying true to my vision. What kind of impact do you want to make in the new year?

  • Two incredibly effective programs that will help you take your planning to the next level and reap amazing rewards all year long
