(Even if you’ve never designed anything before)

Payment Plan Available – One Day Only expires Jan 4 at 11:59pm EST!

How would you like to…

    • Build and sell beautiful planners that make people’s lives better? 
    • Monetize your ideas and create a side-hustle you love? (Hello, fancy vacation you’ve been dreaming about! It’s finally time to take you!)
    • Have the freedom to work from anywhere, make your own hours, and define success on your own terms?
    • Design — and LIVE — your dream life? 

Here’s a little secret between me and you —>> You TOTALLY CAN!

Have you ever thought

“Hey, I could make one so much better than this.” Or maybe you looked down and thought….

  • I really wish they hadn’t squeezed the entire week onto one page. This just isn’t practical. 
  • Only a shrunk-down version of the Ant-Man could write in lines this tiny. I’ll need glasses just to read this later! 
  • Why is there a note about exercise everyday but not an H2O intake tracker? C’mon! Isn’t that a no-brainer? 
  • Where is my Notes section? I have so many ideas I need to jot down, like, yesterday!
  • Why did they ruin it with these bizarrely ugly colors? Don’t they know planners are supposed to be pretty? 
  • Why don’t they offer an option to customize the cover my inserts? There’s gotta be a way to make this planner work better for me. 



  • MAKE YOUR OWN HOURS Because when you’re in charge, you get the freedom to create your own schedule. Orange Theory at 3 PM on a Tuesday? Don’t mind if I do!
  • REMODEL YOUR HOME So you can afford that kitchen remodel you’ve been wanting: Granite countertops and marble flooring? Go for it!
  • SHOWCASE YOUR CREATIVITY TO THE WORLD Dream. Create. Live. And make money at the same time. 
  • SPA DAY Because it will allow you to upgrade your current lifestyle: Hello spa days & maid service!
  • YOU’RE THE BOSS So you can be in charge of your own future: Didn’t get that raise or promotion at the office? Who cares? You get to decide how much your income will be this year.
  • PASSIVE INCOME Imagine waking up to find out you’ve made your entire month’s rent while you were sleeping? Is it a dream? No. You earned it. 
  • BE THE #1 BREADWINNER Move over, Greg! Mama’s got the money now! Unexpected HVAC repairs for the home? No problem! When you’ve got an income stream of your own, you can save the day in your household — and pay next month’s bills. Ah, it feels good to be the Queen.  
  • FOLLOW YOUR PASSION Who doesn’t want to do what they love? You were going to create and dream about planners anyway, so why not make some extra $$ while you do?!

But even if you know you’re meant to design planners, knowing where to start is where you get stuck. HALP!

Sure, you could hire a designer to do it for you — but is it really worth all the hassle?

  • Exorbitantly Expensive  Would I even make back my initial investment? There’s no way to know! 
  • Project Delays Ummm, thanks for delivering the final design in February after the year has already passed and planners are on sale for 80% off
  • Wrong Design The final end product looked nothing like I described – was the designer even listening during our discovery call? Back to the drawing board. 


But DIY-ing it all alone came with a whole other set of problems

  • Canva, Word, Excel and Powerpoint had so many limitations on layout designs, and it was soooo frustrating for me to try to design on them
  • Adobe InDesign was really the only solution that would work, but every time I opened it, I was so overwhelmed, I wanted to cry. Don’t look at me! It’s allergies, ok?! 

If you’re on this page (and look! You ARE) chances are HIGH that like me, you’ve discovered the same thing…

  • You’re ready to monetize your great ideas, but you’re struggling to create the perfect planner
  • What you’ve penciled out on paper looks nothing like the luxurious & high-end beautiful layout you see in your head. There’s a disconnect between brain and page, and you need help closing the gap. 
  • Or maybe you’re the exact opposite of that and all of your hand-drawn Bullet Journals are totally Instagram-worthy and now you’re ready to digitize your beautiful designs into a beautiful planner to share with the world

You need someone to show you how to do it page-by-blank-white-page






    Before I ever became a self-taught Planner Designer pro, I was just a girl who really wanted to learn how to make her own planner. I looked everywhere on the Internet for a course that would show me how — but I came up completely empty. I wanted to learn so badly, I started messaging Planner Creators to ask if they would teach me. They said, “No problem…Just pay me my $24,000 consulting fee.” I was like, “Really? Because the planner I’m gonna make is probably only gonna sell for $30.”


    So I decided to figure it out on my own! 20,000 YouTube subscribers later, now I sell templates and programs to bloggers, course course creators, online businesses, marketers, and moms who all want to become Plannerpreneuers.

    the last for the ESTION!


    Q: How long does the course take?

    A: How about, “As long as you want it to?” You’ll have immediate access to the entire course as soon as you purchase, so you can work through all the material at your own pace. Many students like to do one lesson a week, but others love the thrill of cranking it all out at once. It’s totally up to you! But you can definitely fast-track yourself and get your planners and planner store up selling within a couple weeks if you work on this full-time! 


    Q: Can I use Canva or Microsoft Word instead of Adobe InDesign?

     A: You could but do you really want to? All of the design lessons in Planner Academy are taught in Adobe InDesign because I want you to be able to create beautiful planner layouts that make people say WOW — and InDesign is the BEST program to help you do it. We’re going to create upscale, high-end luxury planners worthy of celebrity clientele. Let everyone else use Word and Canva – you’re moving onto something better!


    Q: How much is Adobe InDesign?

     A: It’s $20.99/month for InDesign alone or you can purchase the entire Creative Cloud Bundle for $52.99/month and also have access to Adobe programs like Photoshop, Illustrator, Premiere and more. Or you can sign up for a free 30-day trial here which I would suggest activating when you’re ready to start Module Two: Design. I’ll walk you through exactly how to sign up for a free trial. All Adobe software subscriptions are month-to-month so you can unsubscribe whenever you want and re-subscribe as needed.


    Q: Can I hire someone to make a planner for me?

    A: Yes! I have specific designers that are able to create planners for you to re-sell that you can hire. (READ: You won’t have to touch InDesign!) Their names + contact info are available to you inside Planner Academy. 


    Q: Do you share all of your vendor names & contact information for printing?

    A: Heck yah! Full transparency. My friends are your friends. P.S. I get emails from people all. the. time. asking if I’ll sell them my vendor list, and I have to tell them no. The ONLY way to get your hands on it is inside Planner Academy. 


    Q: What if I’m already a designer – will I get anything out of this course?

     A: Absolutely! I’m a designer, but I can’t create my own fonts, design comic books, freehand draw, etc. (My calligraphy is outta this world though!) Every new skill adds to your dossier of projects and creates more money in your pockets. You’ll learn the specifics of not only creating planners, but which coil binding works best, where to get them bound, which overseas vendors to hire for mass production, how to set up drop shipping and so much more. Your clients won’t be able to live without you and the planners you create! But if you already know how to use InDesign, you do NOT NEED THIS COURSE for InDesign lessons. The InDesign lessons are meant for beginners. There are no advanced InDesign lessons in here. I repeat – there are no super advanced lessons on how to use the esoteric parts of InDesign that you were hoping some secret Yoda Jedi master would reveal to you in this course. 


    Q: Can I use these planner templates in my own planners?

     A: For sure, that’s what the planner templates are there for! But they must be sold as PDFs or in physical format. The only thing that you cannot do is sell or share them as InDesign files to clients, customers or on design platforms like Creative Market. The purpose of the InDesign templates are to help you to learn, edit faster and start selling your own planners right away.


    Q: What is the schedule for the LIVE 2020 coaching calls?

     A: All Boss School Sessions are delivered LIVE via Crowdcast per the schedule below and are recorded so you can access the webinar replays after.

    • Saturday 2/15 @ 12pm PST | Business Plan Workshop
    • Tuesday 2/18 @ 10am PST | Planner Academy 201 Recap

    • Saturday 3/14 @ 12pm PST |Planner Academy 601 Recap

    You can always email me questions before if you’re not able to make it and I’ll make sure to answer them in the next weekly call. How’s that for support? 😉 


    Q: Which planner templates are included?

     A: The 17+ InDesign Planner Templates include everything you need to create an entire printable or digital planner or Notebook of your very own:

    Want to make these pages your own? You’ll also get branding guide templates, mood boards and pre-designed logo examples in the Beautiful Branding bonus module. 


    Q: Are these the same templates that I already purchased in your Shop or the Etsy Kickstarter?

     A: Not a chance! These templates are exclusive to Planner Academy and are not available for sale anywhere else. You must be enrolled as a student in Planner Academy to get them.


    Q: What if I change my mind. Can I get a refund?

     A: No. You can’t love the course without getting instant access to all of the modules, all of the video lessons, the slide decks, the templates, the checklists, the workbooks and the bonuses so for that reason, I’m not able to offer refunds due to the digital nature of the course. I want to share everything with you right away, right now.


    Do you love planners + love the idea of creating your own, whether it’s for personal or commercial use? Then you won’t hate this course. Seriously – this course rocks! It speaks your language – it’s all about planners, design layouts, printing, production, opening up a kicka$% Etsy shop to sell them in & more. I can’t even imagine why you’d be unhappy for even a second. If there’s something missing from this course, you can guarantee that I’m in the process of adding it.


    Q: What happens after I purchase?

     A: So glad you asked! Because I want to reward you for jumping in with both feet, you’ll promptly receive an email where you can access all video lessons + templates and get started right away! There’s no waiting. 


    1. The downloads you receive will include 17+ InDesign Templates, 3 Workbooks, 6+ Slide Decks from the lectures + a (bonus!) Photoshop template for the Branding Identity Kit + Mood Board

Because I want to give you everything you need to succeed, you’ll have the chance to join me and my adorable cat Lucky LIVE on Crowdcast to have your questions answered + get individualized feedback on your planner. 


    “I was really worried about having to use InDesign but your tutorials were so easy to follow. Thanks for making this so painless. I sold my first planner today! I can’t believe I sell planners.”

    Tonya C.




    I’ll let Shannon sum it up:

    • Here are just some of the literally hundreds of students who’ve decided to turn their passion for planners into profit: 

    • Anyone who cannot bear the idea of going one more day without going after their dreams

    • Women who want to create passive income, so they can get off the “working way too hard” hamster wheel
    • People who want to put themselves in the CEO chair, make their own flexible schedules, and call themselves The Boss of their own company #mycouchismycorneroffice
    • Bloggers who want to monetize their audience and sell digital products they know their readers will love
    • Coaches who want to WOW their clients with beautiful planners, journals and notebook
    • Stay-at-home moms who want to bring in extra funds for their family and create a new level of financial freedom
    • Graphic Designers who want to up level their skillset and add a new stream of revenue to their businesses
    • Virtual Assistants who want to increase their profitability and keep their clients organized 
    • Course Creators who want to increase their income by increasing their offerings online
    • Conference Hosts and event planners who want to provide that special WOW-factor to their attendees (Can you imagine how impressed your audience would be if they got to leave your event, planner in hand? You’d get so many more shares on Instagram!
    • Mastermind Retreat Facilitators who want to bring their A-game through amazing bonuses your clients will adore
    • Teachers who want to dazzle their their students with academic planners
    • Homeschool Moms who want to organize their learning curriculum and keep their kids on top of their lessons
    • Those with a day job looking to create an easy online side-hustle
    • Typography lovers looking to showcase their favorite fonts in a beautiful planner
    • Anyone who can’t find their dream planner and wants to create their own

    Skip out on Planner Academy if: 


    • You don’t want to be shown the shortcut to creating a brand new revenue stream in your business or blog. You love doing it the hard way! 
    • You’re looking for excuses NOT to enroll instead of admitting to yourself that yes, you do want to profit from planners, and yes, you do need someone who’s done it to show you how
    • Your favorite hobby is complaining, and you think the world owes you something. Sorry, but you’ve got to put in the work to get the results, sis! 
    • You’re fine with putting out planners that are fugly or useless for your audience. After all, it’s about your bottom line, not the people who buy from you, right? (P.S. No. No, it’s really not.) 
    • You’d rather spend the next 5 years procrastinating on your planner dreams instead of putting yourself on the direct path to success
    • You want to be shown how to make mediocre planners in Canva or Excel. (We’re going to create upscale, high-end luxury planners worthy of celebrity clientele. If you could make our planner designs in Word or Excel, then we’re not doing our job right.) 

    My only hesitation with buying this course was having to use InDesign. I’d tried it before and was completely overwhelmed. I almost didn’t sign up for this course because of it. But I liked that it had lessons focused only on how to create my planner layouts and nothing more. Lisa’s lessons were great. Helpful, understandable and easy to follow along. The videos were KEY! I could pause, rewind and start over as much as I needed. I’ve already made ten sales in my Etsy Shop and it has only been open one week. I love the sound of the ka-ching my phone makes to alert me that there is a new sale. It’s the best sound in the world. I’d never be able to do that without the Planner Academy.

    Hello, there – I’m Lisa, the only self-declared Planner Designer in the world and the #Girlboss behind Pretty Fabulous Designs. Through my popular YouTube channel and paid programs, I’ve taught tens of thousands of creatives how to create & sell beautiful digital downloads using Adobe InDesign


    I’m 100% self-taught so don’t look for some days of yore story about how I’ve been designing with Crayolas since I was 5, because I haven’t. I have an MBA + over a decade in Corporate America as an HR Executive, but discovered I love creating, crafting and coaching more. 

    Now I live in San Diego, love brunch dates, Afternoon Tea outings and I have a serious ice cream addiction. (I even make it at home!) I’m also a bestselling romance and cozy mystery author.
