Create & Sell Your Own Planner

in just 30 days

(Even if you’ve never designed anything before)

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!
  • 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.

THEN CONGRATULATIONS!

 

You’re Totally Meant To Make & Sell Planners.

 

AND YOU SHOULD BE SUPER EXCITED, BECAUSE…

 
 

As a Plannerpreneur, you get to:

  •  
  • 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.

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:

  •  
  • MORE PROFIT
    Because money loves beautiful things — and so do potential customers (Ever paid more to get it in Rose Gold than standard-issue black? I definitely have!)

  • LESS FRUSTRATION
    Never stare at a blank page again (I have soo-o many templates to share with you, so you never have to start designing from Square One!)

  • MORE CONFIDENCE
    Always know exactly what you’re doing every time you open up Adobe InDesign (No more fear)

  • MORE TIME
    Want a list of pre-approved vendors you can trust, pre-made templates that you simply edit and step-by-step instructions on how to do just about everything? Of course, you do. The word “research” no longer applies here. It’s all available inside Planner Academy.

  • SAVE MONEY
    Any Decent Designer charges between $200 – $750 / hour, but you’ll never have to pay a designer again because you ARE the designer!

  • MORE SALES
    A huge part of being a PlannerBoss isn’t just creating planners but knowing how to sell them – I’ll show you how

  • MORE FREEDOM
    When you’re a Plannerpreneur, you can make your own hours, work from wherever, and do work you actually enjoy. What’s not to love?!

“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.

HAVE A QUESTION?

 

Frequently Asked Questions

 
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: 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. However, there is great value in 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. And there are a ton of marketing lessons.You cannot purchase these separately.

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: 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:

  • 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.

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

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 any new Planner Academy future updates

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.
