Would You Like to Plan In-Person with Me?

by Laura West

I’m having the 3rd annual Joyful Business Planning Day here in Atlanta on Friday, January 17. I’d love for you to join me!

It’s such a powerful and creative opportunity to dive into creating your plan to guide you through the year to even greater focus, flow and success.

This year it is once again sponsored by the Georgia Chapter of ICF (International Coach Federation) – yay! I love working with them to help coaches and other purposeful entrepreneurs be more successful!

Laura and ICF

We will meet together in a beautiful space with gorgeous windows and light. I’ll provide the markers, sticky notes, guidance and coaching… and of course, you’ll get your very own copy of the Joyful Business Plan!

You know that research shows that those who are the most successful… have a plan… and work the plan.

Now, that doesn’t mean that your plan has to be boring and frustrating to create.

What if you enjoyed creating your plan? What if it was fun and easy to do?

That’s what I’ll help you do so you can get those brilliant ideas of yours out of your head!

If you’re interested, we have a few more spots! Here’s the link to get all the information!

Not only do you get the day long planning in person, but you also get the Joyful Business Plan – online training and all the digital creative worksheets! You’ll use this all year long!

Don’t wait to sign up as there are limited spaces in our beautiful meeting space!

I look forward to meeting (or seeing you again) in person!

Get Your Year-End Celebrations Ritual!

by Laura West

How are you honoring your 2019 year this week?

I’ve always watched the ball drop and toasted in the new year with friends and family. This is the second year that I have gone away to celebrate the transition with a 4-day yoga and meditation retreat.

It was different last year to not watch the clock and count down and instead meditate through the shift. I was surprised at how much of a ritual the countdown had been. I was also surprised at how powerful it was to embrace being in the moment and surrendering to the change in the calendar.

We know it’s so much more than a change in a man-made calendar. There’s a shift in energy that happens around the world.

Over the last 6 years I’ve completed a year end ritual of writing down all of my Celebrations, Milestones and Accomplishments on a mindmap. I mean ALL of them… yes, the business stuff but also the personal stuff. The DO-ing accomplishments but also the powerful BE-ing shifts too.

I’d love to share with you my Celebrations Creative worksheet. It’s super simple to use and deceptively powerful!

You can use it to create your own sacred ritual for completing the year with success!

Get your Celebrations Creative Worksheet here.

Wishing you a wonderful celebrating and honoring of all things, people, situations and learnings from this year!

PS: The Celebrations Creative Worksheet is a part of my popular Joyful Business Plan. If you want to check out the whole plan you can do that here. And here’s a $20 savings coupon too! Just use the code: 2020SUCCESS

Save on the Creative Plan and What I’m Up To…

by Laura West

I’m off to my parents this weekend. My sister will come down from Greenville and we’ll come up from Atlanta. My sister has 3 young men and I have 2 so it’s a lot of boy energy every year!

It’s never dull!

We do an extended version of a white elephant for the boys. We have 20 wrapped packages of small gifts. They take turns picking a gift and opening. Then the next person can either take an opened gift or select a wrapped surprise. They go around 5 times!

It’s amazing the trades… I’ll trade you two packs of gum & this neck massager for that Chik-fil-a gift card!

It’s lots of fun!

Speaking of fun and creative ideas…

Did you get your Joyful Business Plan yet?

I wanted to send a last-minute reminder because today is the last day you can save $70!

It’s such an inspiring and creative way to use in your yearly planning ritual! My clients all say how grateful they are for this way to get into planning flow!

Here’s that link again: Joyful Business Plan.


And, I hope to see you on the bonus Virtual Planning Retreat I hold in January! I want to hear what you are up to!

PS: Atlanta Area – would you like to join me in planning in person? This is the 3rd year I’ve held an in-person workshop to create your Joyful Business Plan – it’s so much fun, productive and well, just extra special when we are in person! Here’s the details to sign up: Joyful Business Planning Day.
