Create & Sell Your Own Planner

in just 6 weeks

(Even if you’ve never designed anything before)

How would you like to…

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….

THEN CONGRATULATIONS!

You're totally meant to make & sell planners.

AND YOU SHOULD BE SUPER EXCITED, BECAUSE...

As a Plannerpreneur, you get to:

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?

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

If you’re on this page (and look! You ARE)...

Chances are HIGH that like me, you’ve discovered the same thing…

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

Introducing...

I've packed everything I know about creating, designing and selling planners into an easy-to-follow, A-Z course.

Planner Academy will take you from
“I don't know where to start!”
to finally earning money with your own planner.

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. 

Join us inside the Planner Academy

Planner Academy is jam-packed with video modules, workbooks, templates, tutorials, done-for-you designs and live biweekly coaching support for women JUST like you.

WHEN YOU TAKE PLANNER ACADEMY, YOU’RE SAYING “YES” TO:

“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.”

Let's take a tour through Planner Academy 2.0

Module #0:

Course Orientation Guide

Welcome to the most comprehensive and only planner course out there. We’ll talk about how Planner Academy 2.0 sets you up from success right from the get-go and how to get the most out of this course.

Module #1:

Choosing a Profitable Planner Niche

Let’s create the planner of your dreams by carving out the best themes, trends, types of planners that everyone is looking for. The riches are in the niches and there are plenty of great planner ideas out there waiting for you to create them. Let’s find one that resonates with you, your business and your message.

Module #2:

Anatomy of a Planner

Learn all of the planner content terminology so you’re speaking the same language as your competitors and can communicate properly with print vendors and graphic designers on what you want to see inside and how you want it represented. Create a unique and positive user experience that makes customers want to reorder from you year after year.

Module #3:

Your Planner Blueprint

Planners come in many different shapes, sizes and formats. Let’s go through all of your options and choose the best one for you – it could be all 3: Physical Printed Planners, Digital Planners for the iPad Pro + Tablets, Printable PDFs that customers download and print. I’ll walk you through all of the different paper and size options out there.

Module #4:

Printing Your Planner

Who doesn’t love physical planners that you can touch, feel and hold. Your customers want to get their planners delivered straight to your door. Or maybe you’d like to get them into major retail big boxes like Target or Office Depot.

Module #5:

Creating Your Digital Planner Shop

Did you know that iPad growth grew 41% in the first quarter of 2021, reaching $8.4 Billion? It’s safe to say, more and more users are looking for iPad only solutions everyday. And yes, all of the lessons I’m going to show you will teach you how to design your digital planner from scratch using Adobe Indesign.

Module #6:

Creating Your Digital Planner Shop

You don’t have to create an entire planner. Tons of customers are looking for 1-page trackers, daily planning sheets, weekly meal planners, grocery shopping lists, weight loss and fitness trackers and more. The possibilities are endless. You create PDFs and they download and print them on their own. And yes, you can have different sizes. Create inserts for the popular A5 planners with cut lines.

Module #7:

Your Planner Sales Platform

Everyone’s on Etsy, including me! But there are tons of different options out there. We’ll talk through the pros and cons of selling your planners with an Etsy Shop, your own website and Shopify and other options like direct to customers on social media, craft fairs and through affiliates.

EXTRA Design Module:

DIY Adobe Indesign Planner Layout Tutorials

Let’s design your planner together using Adobe Indesign – this module will take a total newbie (not even sure what the word graphic design means) and will walk you through step by step on how to create your own planner layouts from scratch. This is an EXTRA module because it’s completely optional. I highly recommend buying a pre-made template from my shop, a Planner Pop Up Shop Kit or outsourcing the design to get your planner business up and running ASAP. Learning Adobe Indesign does have a steep learning curve but if you’re determined to learn it, I can show you how!

have a question?

Frequently Asked Questions

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!
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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

  • Annual layout
  • Monthly layout
  • Weekly layout (2)
  • Daily layout
  • Notes pages
  • Grocery Shopping List
  • Goal Setting Worksheet
  • Front Cover
  • Back Cover
  • Welcome layout
  • How to print instructions
  • Advertisement layout
  • Dot Grid Matrix
  • Pages for Bullet Journals
  • Graph Paper for Bullet Journals
  • Complete 2020* Weekly Planner

*This will be updated with 2021 Dates [available May 2020]

All templates are provided in standard 8.5 x 11” size but I include a lesson on how to easily re-size these to A4, half-size, mini, pocket or any other size you desire.

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.

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.

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.

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

2. You will also get instant access to all Bonus Materials, so you can pour yourself a cuppa Chocolate Peppermint Tea and start binging right away.

3. You will find an Orientation video + instructions on how to navigate the course as soon as you log in. #easy

4. You’ll also be automatically added to the private forum group to ask any questions

5. Don’t forget, you’re also grandfathered into the NEW Planner Academy 2.0 – which will be a completely revised course coming in April 2020. And no, you will not have to pay anything extra to get access to it. 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.

About your Planner Academy Professor...

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.
