2017 Planner – Roundup

2017 Planner – Roundup

by Business, weekly roundup

November seems to be the new “planning season”… Have you noticed? Especially if you’re an entrepreneur.

And what better way to plan for 2017, than to find the perfect planner, that helps you brainstorm, create a plan for 2017, and then execute that plan.

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

So I began pulling together a list of planners, specifically for online entrepreneurs.

Whatever planner you choose, keep these things in mind:

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

[You’ll see an * asterisk next to the planners I’m an affiliate for. If you click through and purchase, I may receive a small commission from the seller at no extra cost to you. Thanks for your support in this way.]
