2015 Planners
December ’tis the season for planning- especially if you’re an entrepreneur.

Today is the second day of the 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway series – Small Biz Essentials. 

Read on to find out how you can access some cool 2015 planners and even win a free copy of Leonie Dawsons 2015 Biz Calendar.

During the giveaway I’ll share with you tools & resources online business owners use to run their business. And, I’ll be giving away a copy of the tool I use to random commenter (see more details at the bottom of this post)

2015 Planners

Planning on it’s own won’t make or break your business. But without taking the time to plan, it’s unlikely you’ll get to the destination we crave. And, doesn’t December feel like a great time to plan? To reflect on what’s happened in the past 12 months and dream big about the coming year?

[Tweet “What we focus on expands…good enough reason for me to spend time planning for 2015. “]

Below are a list of some of the planners I know about. The truth is, I can’t recommend a specific planner, because I use a combination of 3 myself.

In my experience it’s not a one size fits all approach, but something you refine for yourself, year after year.

But the bottom line is, it’s important to:

  • reflect on what worked & didn’t this past year
  • make adjustments
  • and then set your compass for the upcoming year.

    had so much fun looking at these I forgot to put in my comment ~ how fun to have planning made fun so you stick to your plan! Would love to win this one. Thank you for all the great hints and ideas in the 12 Days of Christmas!

  2. Latreeka

    Cool planner! I really really really need to get better organized for 2015 and this would be a great start!

  3. Heather

    This looks fun and interesting. Maybe just the kick in the pants I need to be more organized and to begin defining and working toward my goals.

  4. Christie

    I could easily have a planner addiction, Loralee! These all look so essential.

    • Loralee Hutton

      I hear ya Christie – I feel the same way 🙂

  5. Sam Howard

    Thanks for the blog I had never heard of the BlogEnergizer App before looks handy.

    I love Secret Bloggers Business 2015 #blogyeah planner and for my business planning and tracking activities I love my custom made planner from personal-planner.com.au

    Thanks for the great suggestions I will check them out 🙂

    • Loralee Hutton

      Oh! I’ll have to check out Secret Bloggers! Sounds like a fab resource. Thank you for that and for stopping by.

  6. e Lee

    This looks like fun, too – I inevitably write everything down vs online tracking, even though the electronic is ‘better’ in the long run 😀

  7. Karen Johanson

    Another thing I need! Though I am starting to suspect that a VA to manage my calendar might be another good tool for 2015!

  8. Melissa Burford

    I love planners and have used some of these in the past. Would love to win. Thanks for the opportunity!

  9. Dona Bumgarner

    Great post! It is so nice to see a comparison. I also use a combo of different planner sets. I’ve been working with Leonie’s printed book for a couple of years for goal setting – I love it!

  10. Meg

    I love Leonie’s workbook. I had so much fun working through it last year … The passion planner is also really cool! Thanks for sharing 🙂
