What’s the Dream Plan Do 2019 monthly planner?

This softback monthly planner journal will be your guide to build a more successful creative business in 2019. Packed full with practical business advice ESPECIALLY for designers, makers and other creative product businesses, such as stationery, prints, homewares & giftware.

It’s a workbook … asking you the small and big questions every month that will help you to move your business truly forward. From setting goals for the year and your finances, to what you really do and who your ideal clients are, to creating and launching a brand and product collection, to planning and doing your marketing and social media for your online and wholesale orders, events and more.

Dream Plan Do is based on my 25 years experience as a creative business adviser, trainer and coach. Dream Plan Do is full of the questions and exercises that I have used and developed with 1,000s of creative clients over the years. It’s like having me as your coach by your side all year round, whenever you need to work ON your business, wherever you are.

To help you DREAM bigger, PLAN better and start DOING!

To help you focus on the things that really matter

To work in line with the market flow of most creative businesses and get ready to launch your product in the Autumn for the Christmas market.

To prioritise and make your own decisions - more confidently. Make the most of the quiet times to get ready for the busy times.

Turn your big ideas into do-able steps. Quarter by quarter. Month by month.

What’s inside your DREAM PLAN DO Planner?

  • Start with 'the Big Picture' and identify what you really want to achieve - this year and beyond. Work on your vision and your true motivations and values of what's important in your life and business. Dream Plan Do asks you some big fundamental questions to make sure that you are on the right track for you, your business and clients.

  • Every quarter you will review how you and your business are doing, what's working well and what needs your attention and work. Set your own 90-day juicy goal and create your own quarterly and monthly plans (including your juicy goal, finance, marketing & production) to move your creative business forward. Break big goals down into smaller chunks.

  • Each month has a different theme (based on the natural market rhythms of seasonal creative businesses). Each month you will tackle a specific area in your business in a logical and timely way, without feeling overwhelmed. So you’ll know you are doing the right thing at the right time, making full use of the quieter months to get ready for your product launch in the Autumn and the busy run up to Christmas.
