Are you seeking guidance and strategies that directly address your desire for a more balanced and fulfilling life? Welcome to ”Plan Goal Plan,” the weekly escape into the world of meaningful planning, intentional goal setting, and purposeful living.

Join me as we delve into personal development, time management, and self-care, armed with expert insights, relatable stories, and practical tips. This podcast is a sanctuary for hardworking individuals, especially moms, aiming to reclaim their time and inject joy and purpose into their daily routines. As a professor, mom, planner addict, and recovering overachiever with years of both personal and professional exploration, I’ve navigated the complexities of balancing career ambitions with family life. My journey from feeling lost and burnt out, despite achieving significant goals, to finding a sustainable path forward has taught me the importance of planning with care and setting goals that truly resonate. I understand the struggles of feeling like you have to do it all because I’ve been there. If simplifying life, achieving goals with genuine joy, and making room for what truly matters to you sounds like your cup of tea, ”Plan Goal Plan” will be your guide. We’re on a mission to transform daily routines into meaningful rituals and productivity into endless possibilities, all while fostering a supportive community.

Let’s redefine the essence of productivity together and make every moment count. Through my own experiences of feeling overwhelmed by various planning and productivity systems and the realization that I had lost touch with what truly mattered, I discovered a simpler, more enjoyable approach to goal setting and time management. This revelation changed my perspective on productivity and led me to start ”Plan Goal Plan.” Now, I want to share these insights, along with strategies and stories, to help you navigate your own path to a fulfilling and balanced life.
