Believe, Plan, Act: A Platform + Productivity Planner for Writers

The complete productivity + planning system for your author business.

Are you...

Feeling completely overwhelmed when it comes to figuring out what needs to get done (and when!) in order to build your online presence and market your book?

Wasting time on endless to-do's that don't really seem to be getting you anywhere?

Setting big goals and then having no clue how to actually break them down so you can achieve them?

Struggling to prioritize your massive writerly to-do list?

Wishing you had more time and more focus to write AND market your work? (Instead of only one or the other – or very little of either?)

What if you could attract droves of engaged fans, increase your author income, AND still have the independence to pursue your writing goals?

Psst, here’s a secret: You can.

If you're struggling to build your platform AND still find time to write (without pulling your hair out), I want to introduce you to my secret weapon:

Believe, Plan, Act: A Platform + Productivity Planner for Writers

Everything you need to discover, plan, and execute your writing and business goals – so you can finally remove the word “aspiring” from all your profiles...

This complete author business workbook + planning system is designed to specifically address the needs of writers working to build their platforms and author businesses – everything from tracking daily word counts and book sales to strategic marketing, launch planning, and developing your author brand.

This is not a course, but a strategic, actionable, and transformational planning tool to help writers focus on the results they’re after and the reasons they want to achieve them.

(It is a digital download that you print, organize, and bind to fit your author business needs.)

The Planner will help you map out:

  • what you do, why you do it, and who you do it for
  • your creative and career goals
  • your financial and sales goals

  • your book launch plan(s)
  • your network and relationship-building strategy
  • your social media goals
  • strategic platform planning in 30 and 90-day stretches

... and more!

This printable planning system also has undated daily, weekly, and monthly planning pages, which means that you can start using it whenever you're ready. No wasted weeks or months – just steady progress toward your goals.

The Platform + Productivity Planner is broken down into 3 sections:



Purpose. Vision. Goals.

To achieve what you want, you need to critically examine what you perceive to be your limitations, embrace both your strengths AND your weaknesses, and then take action anyway, however imperfect.

In this section of the Platform + Productivity Planner, you'll work through:

  • mastering your mindset by identifying your negative internal dialogue and cultivating an attitude that moves you closer to your dreams (instead of holding you back).
  • your purpose or the reason for doing the work that you do (and why it is so important).
  • your vision, mission, and your core values – so that it's not only clear to you, but crystal clear to others – what you're promising your readers, and the worldview that drives everything you do.
  • goal worksheets to help you further clarify your goals, and to begin brainstorming the action steps you need to take to get you there.


Review. Prioritize. Strategize.

Now that you’ve defined what success looks like, it’s time to start the planning process. Remember, you’re looking for the fastest, simplest way you can reach your goal.

In this section of the Platform + Productivity Planner, you'll work through:

  • an author business review to take a look at what you’ve done over the last 12 months and where you stand today.
  • brainstorming + priorities worksheets to brain dump, catch, and organize your big ideas.
  • your marketing summary + business plan to clarify your target audience, author brand, market research, content strategy, and more.

  • your blogging and post-planning strategy to grow your platform and influence.
  • your email list-building strategy to ensure you grow a targeted, invested list of subscribers (and book buyers!).
  • developing well-orchestrated social media campaigns to generate a groundswell of interest and support for your work.
  • book launch planning + execution to carefully prepare, time, and execute just the right mix of launch activities to propel your new book out into the world.
  • network + relationship building to extend your influence, receive valuable feedback, and gain exposure for your writing.
  • advanced platform building + business strategies, including creating business and income streams beyond your book.


Schedule. Track. Evaluate.

By tracking your progress, you will be more aware of what's working and what's not – then you can do more of what's moving the needle for your career, and stop wasting your time doing things that aren't helping you achieve your goals.

In this section of the Platform + Productivity Planner, you'll have access to:

  • your year-at-a-glance to give you a bird's eye view of your author business over the next 12 months.
  • your 90-day action planner to list your goals + objectives and the milestones you need to reach to accomplish them.
  • your 30-day action planner to plan out your monthly top 5 priorities, activities, and 30-day goals.
  • monthly and weekly planning pages
  • a daily planning page
  • month in review worksheets to look at what went right, what went sideways, and other important details.
  • a finance tracking worksheet because even if your career is in the fledgling stage, knowing where you stand financially is vital.
  • production budget worksheet (per book or by project) to help you determine the potential viability (and profitability) of each project.
  • a book sales tracker
  • your yearly stat + analytics tracker to show where your business is growing, and where it may need some work.
  • a worksheet to plan + evaluate your next 12 months.

Harness the power of putting pen to paper to transform your author business

Use it as a therapeutic outlet, a record of your author journey, and a means to engage your brain in a new way.

Why Choose a Printable Planner?

Enhanced Focus and Clarity: Writing down your author goals, plans, and tasks on paper allows you to concentrate on one thing at a time. This increased focus can help clarify your thoughts and make your writing goals more attainable.

Reduced Digital Distractions: Digital tools often come with the temptation of browsing, notifications, and social media distractions. A printable planner keeps you away from the digital world during your planning sessions, helping you stay on track and avoid distractions.

Tangible Visualization: Physically writing down your goals and plans makes them tangible. You can touch, see, and interact with your planner, creating a stronger connection to your aspirations and motivating you to take action.

Improved Memory Retention: Studies show that physically writing things down can improve memory retention. When you write down your ideas, plot points, or marketing strategies, you're more likely to remember and act upon them.

Customization: A printable planner can be tailored to suit your unique needs and preferences. You have the freedom to structure it in a way that best serves your author business, including adding or removing sections as required.

Creative Outlet: Some authors find the act of physically writing in a planner to be a creative and enjoyable process. It can serve as a form of self-expression and provide a sense of fulfillment beyond just goal-setting.

While digital tools have their place and can complement your planning process, the benefits of using a printable planner for authors are clear. It can provide a sense of grounding, focus, and organization that can significantly contribute to your success as a writer and authorpreneur.

"I think having the monthly review section is very powerful. A lot of journals / planners / goal setting activities I come across don't have that section, which is one of the most important parts. My wife and I make yearly goals together and each anniversary we do a review. We both agree that the review is the most eye opening part."

The sooner you develop a comprehensive blueprint for your author business, the sooner you'll start to reap the rewards of your dedication and creativity.

What if I Decide the Platform + Productivity Planner is Not for Me? Can I Get a Refund?
