The Anti-Planning Workshop

You’re not failing your plans. The plans are failing you.

You took the 5-day planning challenge. You bought the post-its and markers. 

You set your goals and did the maths.

Asana? Check. Spreadsheets? Check. Cute planner? Check. 

You feel like the organized, put-together business owner you feel you should be - even if putting together that plan was actually a little hard. 

You didn’t really have an answer for some of the stuff on that workbook. 

And some deadlines maaaay be a little tight? It’s hard to estimate those things. 

Also, you hope you didn’t forget anything and have to move the whole thing around - again.

But hey! It’s done.  

This is my year”, you tell yourself, but then...  

Hmm, following this plan is hard. Why can’t you just keep up with the bloody checklists and deadlines?

You start getting some weird feelings whenever you open your planner. It all feels exciting and everything, but also… kinda complex, and difficult, and heavy, and busy?

You were so on track, but now you missed your monthly income goal, and it all feels kinda ruined. You’re letting yourself down again. Maybe this isn’t your year after all.

All of sudden it’s June. Where did the time go?! But you know what? This is the perfect chance for a oh-so-needed fresh start. New plan, you’ve got this.

The dog gets sick. A baby is on the way. And you’ve been having some terrible migraines of late. Maybe this isn’t your year after all - Part II.

Your neighbor puts up the Christmas lights. How is it November already?! You’re a little ashamed to admit you haven’t looked at your plan in months, but it feels kinda pointless to get back to it now. The year is pretty much over, isn’t it?

Oh, it’s that 5-day planning challenge again! You should do it. Next year will be the year. You just need a better plan, right?... Right?!

Some pompous statistic out there says: 

"Businesses who plan ahead perform up to a million percent better!"

or something like that....

But I don’t know...

If all the planning was the missing key,
why aren’t we all hitting goals left and right, all the time?

The 3 big problems with planning the way
most business owners are doing it:

1. And this is something I deeply know to be true... You can’t plan your business into working. It just doesn’t work like that. Business takes a ton of experimentation. You take action, see what happens, tweak and repeat.   

2. Planning ignores the most important part of the equation: you. When you start taking action, you change things. You open new doors, you make new connections, you become better. You also get sick, tired, or just… ya’know, bored. 

3. When you’re all caught up in your plans, you miss on the magic. You know, the magic of doing stuff when you feel really inspired. Of ideas bestowed upon you by the shower gods. Of new, fun, unexpected opportunities. Fact: the best things in life and business are magic.

Now, don’t get me wrong... 

This isn’t about throwing all your big goals and business dreams out the window. 

I love and adore big terrifying goals as much as every passionate business owner out there. 

But as you already know (or maybe secretly suspected), planning things all the way to the finish line isn’t helping you achieve those goals.

The alternative? 

I’m glad you asked 😀

Your 5-day planning marathon is cancelled

It’s time you meet...

The Anti-Planning Workshop

In this video workshop, I’m teaching you the strategies I use to achieve my business goals again and again and again… without the overwhelm of planning things to death and the frustration of having plans inevitably fall apart.

The pitfalls in setting monthly income goals, and tweaks to make them lighter and a lot more fun to work with.

Two questions to make sure you’re always working on what actually moves the needle for your business.

The only 3 things you need to focus on to make sure your business grows - no more juggling 23784 projects at once!

A lighter, more relaxed alternative to planning - that you actually can control. 

3 anti-planning tools to define where you’re headed and what’s needed to get you there.

A little-known strategy to create constant wins in your business without gigantic, overwhelming plans.

"I think I found a method that will actually work for me! I really liked Lizzy's approach to planning, especially her advice on not needing to plan everything in such a granular way."

Mamta Roos

"The big takeaway has been that I can do everything in a way that feels right to me, and I can still be successful. I don’t have to put myself in a box that I don’t like."

Michelle Beckman

"It was so refreshing to hear you speak about a way of working that goes against conventional wisdom but clearly works for you. I loved the message that even if you don’t plan ahead in detail, you still end up getting shit done if you care about your business."

Danbee Shin

But Lizzy…. How will I get anything done without a plan?

What would you do if you woke up tomorrow with *gasp* no plans? 

They’r all gone. What would you do with your day?

Would you shrug and just watch Netflix all day? Or would you actually keep on doing things that you know to be relevant for your business and goals?

It’s not the plan that makes you show up and do things in your business.

It’s the fact that you’re a passionate, driven person who wants to accomplish things.

Anti-planning doesn’t mean you stop doing things. It means you stop letting yourself be limited by planning.

Most plans are impossible to stick with anyway. Stuff happens, fun opportunities come up... And life is always full of those “I didn’t consider that” or “I didn’t see that coming” moments. Before you notice, poof! The plan is out the window.

Anti-planning just accounts for that from the get go. 

It helps you make the most of every day, and stop feeling like your dreams are doomed whenever life goes all “magic, surprises, and changes” - as it usually does.

Anti-Planning is for you if…

Now, hold on to your planner if...

"The whole workshop was one big a-ha and totally different from anything else I've seen on planning (or not planning!). Honestly, everything you covered was amazing."

Blair Wadman

"I liked the spaciousness created by the permission to just experiment, and the validation that I'm not the only one who plans down to the grains but doesn't usually follow through on them."

L'Erin Alta

Wonder no more. Here are the As to your Qs.

Will this method work for me?

Well, this isn’t really a method.

I’m sharing with you ideas and strategies that have helped me achieve my goals again and again and again - without the overwhelm of planning things to death and the frustration of having plans inevitably fall apart. 

But there are no planners to print, calendars to hang, yadda yadda yadda. 

What I’m teaching you is a framework to make decisions, enjoy the most of everyday magic, and consistently take action that brings you closer to your goals.

Is this only about yearly planning?

You can use these strategies anytime of the year - not just in December or January, when the yearly planning craze tends to flair up. 

If you’re struggling to follow through on your plans, and feeling overwhelmed trying to make big goals a reality, this is for you - even if it’s March or something.

What if I want my post-its and planners back after watching this?

No worries. Planning is a personal thing, and you gotta do what works best for you.

If you feel like you didn’t learn anything remotely useful in this workshop, let me know within 7 days from signing up and I’ll refund your purchase.

Is this a live training? 

Nope, this is a recording of a live training.

Buttt you’ll still get the chance to ask me any questions about the content.

When you purchase your pass to watch the workshop, you’ll be invited to my private student Facebook group, Team EBG’s Party Pad, where I host monthly Office Hours to support you.

"I love that I don’t have to do it the way all the gurus tell you to! All that planning used to be a constant millstone around my neck! I knew I should be doing it but it felt so heavy! I’m so happy that there’s another way!"

Tracy Jayne Hooper

"You reminded me that the 'coming soon' pressure is not productive! Plus a theme for me was the importance of figuring out whether you *actually* want the thing you think you want or think you *ought* to want."
