Video – Creative Planning Doesn’t Have to Be Boring – Join me!

Are you ready for 2015?

The ideas. The launches. The products. The programs.

If you are like me, then you are already saying, “This is MY Year!”

Well, if you want this year to be different, then you’re probably thinking, “I SHOULD plan these projects out. But…ugh…that sounds boring. And constricting.”

I’m here to tell you that PLANNING shouldn’t be boring!

OUT with the traditional create-a-plan-and-stick-to-it.

IN with new ways of planning that work for YOU – as a creative entrepreneur – that combine Focus & Flow!

Take a look at my video below where I show you a delightful buffet of my favorite – and nonboring! – creative planning tools: what I use, how I use them, and even where I get them!

Having the right tools, systems and supplies is the first step in developing a Creative Planning System that really works for YOU!

You might find that you’re inspired to do a little holiday shopping for yourself (and it’s a tax write-off)!

If you’d like to take it a step further and put those supplies to use, join me Wednesday, December 10, for my Virtual Creative Business Studio. This month’s topic is Creative Planning for 2015!

I’ll take you and other smart, creative entrepreneurs through the process I use to plan all those projects I create. And you’ll get a chance to work on your 2015 plan!

Date: Wednesday, December 10, 2014
Time: 11:00am – 3:30pm eastern
Location: Virtually! We’ll be meeting via webinar, so you’ll be able to see the tools I share in action!
Price: Only $97 for this creatively rich ½-day virtual experience!

Best of both worlds: Training & Action! I’ll share my Creative Business Planning methods, and then you’ll have two hours of virtual retreat time to apply this to your own plans for 2015!

You’ll be happy you did! You’ll use these supplies and systems over and over! 2015…. get ready for an amazing year!

P.S. Not only do I share my favorite creative planning tools with you in the video above, but once you register, I’ll send you a complete list of my recommendations for creative business planning tools. Mostly you’ll need a calendar, sticky notes and a list of your projects and programs for next year!

Do you hate plans? Make them fun and creative, and you won’t hate them anymore!

 Big Plans with markers

I can absolutely understand if you hate plans. When I was in my corporate marketing years, I literally created and reviewed thousands of plans. Once all that hard planning was done, those plans would sit on a shelf in an ugly, boring three-ring binder…. unused.

Ugh! Who wants that!

When I talk about planning in a joyful business way, it’s a NEW way of looking at planning. Blending beauty, creativity, realness, and the idea that all plans are “living.” They will definitely change as you move into action, so you need a system to help you focus and stay committed but enough flexibility to move with real-time feedback and a quick changing world.

And if it’s beautiful, creative, and fun, you’ll actually use it!

Big-Plans-with-markers-e1355174499903This is what we’ll be doing next week at the Virtual Creative Business Studio:

  • Open up to the Vivid Visioning Process so you can open your creativity, ideas and Flowmentum™ to get your ideas into action!

  • Learn new ways of working with Focus AND Flow to creative Living Plans that will support you all year long!
  • Learn my favorite Creative Business Planning Tools – everything from what supplies you need, to how to use them daily, yearly, weekly and monthly.
  • You’ll even get time to take your 2015 ideas and creatively plan them using the Living Business Planning system™.
  • I’ll show you real examples of my own plans using these tools so you can see how they work
  • You will leave feeling more grounded, inspired, and excited about your ideas for 2015!

Let’s make 2015 YOUR year!

Book Recommendation: Don’t ever stay stuck again!

by

 Marnie Makridakis’ book is your antidote to being stuck or feeling low creative energy.

New Book: Hop, Skip, Jump by Marnie Makridakis

New Book: Hop, Skip, Jump by Marnie Makridakis

In Hop,Skip, Jump you’ll find 75 Ways to Playfully Manifest a Meaning Life and so much more! Each idea is filled with golden nuggets of mind-shifters, new thought paths and idea changers…tools and exercises to help you move your energy that are playful and fun!

These seemingly innocent fun exercises will totally change up your creativity and you’ll love what new ideas and energy explodes!

Marnie’s books and programs always give you a different way of looking at everyday, often boring or even stressful, things in our life. She is true to her brilliance as she shares all sorts of ways to make something boring into something totally amazing, and brilliant if only you thought that way. Marnie helps you “think that way.”

A good book to have beside your desk as a go-to-resource (I don’t recommend it beside your bed, unless you want to be up all night percolating with ideas!).
