Have you ever had one of those weeks where you’re totally scatterbrained? Every day is chaos and you’re struggling to get out the door in the morning and get dinner on the table at night.

Forget dinner on the table – more like dinner in the drive through.


In Episode 004, I dig into one of the most important routines in my life, my Weekly Planning Session. I even created a 5-page workbook so you can design your own – Click here to download Design Your Own Weekly Planning Session.

A weekly planning session is a chunk of time set aside each week, usually on the same day of the week, to look ahead and make a few decisions that will help your week move smoothly once it’s in motion.

On the rare occasion that I don’t make time for my Weekly Planning Session, life gets… crazy.

Tune in to learn:

  1. Why you should consider starting a Weekly Planning Session

  2. What exactly is a Weekly Planning Session

  3. How to design your own Weekly Planning Session

  4. Ideas for what to include in your Weekly Planning Session

  5. Common pitfalls to avoid + how to make it fun!

If life feels a little crazy right now for you, and you find yourself scrambling on a daily basis, a weekly planning session of your own might be your game changer.
