Biggest 2019 Planner Round-Up! 110+ Planners for Creatives and Entrepreneurs

Are you looking for a 2019 day planner? Here's the most extensive list of digital and paper planners on the internet. Creative entrepreneurs, moms, teachers, and others can find their perfect planner here.

I Bring You All the Choices!

All year long, I track new planners so that in November - when planner hunting season starts, lol - I can have the most comprehensive list ready for you. This year, I've curated 114 planners for you to check out! I'll add more 2019 planners as I hear of them, so this number will rise. When I started this annual planner round-up for 2017 planners, there were "only" 70-something. In 2018's post, we started with 101 and ended up with 113. Let's see how many we can add to this post for 2019 - wahoo! If you know of any planners I’ve missed, please leave a comment below - or send me a note at [email protected] - and I'll add them.

8 Places Creative Entrepreneurs Can Work Away from Home

One of the best things about being an online entrepreneur is that we get to work from home, right? But sometimes that gets lonely, distracting, or downright claustrophobic. Here are 8 places creative entrepreneurs can get out of the house and work.

 

1. Outdoors - at home

After being cooped up inside so much, it can be really nice to not only leave the 4 walls of your home office but to also get outdoors. My first suggestion isn't that far from home; it's actually AT home  :) How about your own backyard, front yard, porch, or patio? You can set up with your laptop and mobile phone at a patio table, Adirondack chair with a comfy pad, or a chaise lounge (this seems like the ultimate in luxury, doesn't it? You deserve it!). Another option would be to spread a blanket on the grass with pillows to support your back or sit criss-cross-applesauce. 

Pros: Access to drinks and food; ability to recharge your devices; a new perspective including things...

Who Are You and Why Are You Here?

 

Hey creative entrepreneur, or woman aspiring to be . . . this is for you. This site is for you and, as I was conceptualizing it and building it, I always had you on my mind.

I want this to be the perfect place for you. To that end, I "re-did" Marie Forleo's B-School which included going through the lessons again, with this site and with you in mind.

I found the process fascinating! So I thought I'd do a little blog post and share my notes and thoughts from my B-School homework. This post derives from B-School's "Start the Right Business," Lesson 3. Here are the questions and my answers. 

Who are the people you and your business will serve? Who exactly is your product or service for?

My business will serve and is for: female online creative entrepreneurs.


What is her day-to-day life like?

Now that she's got her business started, she's feeling really lucky to be working from home and building her own business instead of someone else's. But she often feels like...

I Believe ...

I believe that times have changed. You are no longer beholden to employers - to someone else - for a job or career. I believe that the internet has changed everything. YOU are now in power. YOU now get to decide. Everything. What work you do, when you work, where you work, when you'll take time off, and how much you're paid. EF VAC-image 1 for I Believe I believe that you CAN make a living from your passion if you choose to. You can take your loves, your hobbies, and your talents and make money from them online. I believe that there is no such thing anymore as "I can't find a job." MAKE A JOB. Even if it's temporary while you search for a job like your old one or the one you went to college for. I believe that it's not easy, you have a lot to learn, it won't happen overnight, and you won't be rich tomorrow. But you CAN do it. It WILL happen. I believe in YOU because you're smart, you're driven, you work hard, you have talent, and you have passion. EF VAC-image 2 for I Believe I believe that this is a very exciting time in our world and...
