Make 2023 the year you get out of your own way in your business!
Learn how Power Planning took my business from $100k per year to $100k months...
Click to watch Episode 377 of The Perfectionism Project where I share why so many people have asked me to create The Power Planning Course and the reason I’m finally doing it...
When you’re planning properly as a perfectionist with Power Planning, every hour you put into your business gets you double the return.
My business was NOT an overnight success…
Since the day I started my business, I just wanted to feel like the work I was putting in would actually pay off.
Unfortunately, that took wayyy longer than I’d hoped…
Today my business has made over $1.5 million in total.
But it took me 3 years to make my first dollar and 6 years to have my first $100k year.
I had a pretty good hunch my problem WASN’T because I had the wrong marketing strategy or that I didn’t know how to build a successful business.
(I’ve always LOVED learning so lack of information has never been my problem).
But I couldn’t help but ask myself…
If I was so smart, why wasn’t my business growing??
Then I had a realisation that changed everything…
Even though I was a hard worker and I LOVED being productive, I’d always struggled with motivation (or so I thought).
I worked in stops and starts, I waited until the last minute to get the most important things done, I kept burning myself out from all the pressure I put on myself and I had countless planners that I abandoned after three weeks of filling them out perfectly.
Then I came to realise (1) I’m a perfectionist and (2) being a perfectionist meant I couldn’t follow the same planning advice as everyone else.
And that’s when everything started clicking into place…
I was already good at planning - the only issue was that I was NOT planning in a way that worked FOR my perfectionist mindset.
I was doing all the things that worked super well for non-perfectionists (like to-do lists and time blocking) and this was MAKING me getting in my own way.
I already had all of the marketing knowledge I needed to put my business on a new trajectory…
I just needed to figure out how to plan in a way that got my perfectionist mindset on my side so I could do all the things I needed to do…
And Power Planning was born…
The hard work I put into my business finally started to pay off…
When I created what I now call Power Planning, 90% of the problems I was having with procrastination, overthinking and burnout just dissolved.
Once I learned how to plan in a way that got my perfectionist mindset working FOR me (instead of against me), I woke up each morning feeling clear on exactly what I needed to do and went to bed feeling productive and accomplished.
Instead of losing time every day to overthinking and busywork, I was getting shit done consistently and sustainably.
I was finally acting like the CEO I’d always wanted to be.
And my revenue couldn’t help but reflect that…
The fact that Power Planning meant I was having a productive week, every week, took my business from $100k per year to $100k MONTHS.
All while working less hours than I ever had before.
And I know for sure that if I had Power Planning from the beginning of my business it wouldn’t have taken me so long (6 years!) to make my first $100,000.
Thanks to Power Planning, my revenue skyrocketed…
And my clients have experienced the same thing…
“I made six figures and halved my work hours”
“Before Power Planning I was chaos. I worked CONSTANTLY but I wasn’t getting any of the important stuff done. Since starting I have more than doubled my income - I have already made $125k in 2022 so far and I’m taking more time off than ever before. Power Planning was the best thing for my business and has made a huge impact on my day to day life.”
- Natalie (Knit & crochet designer)
“I stick to my plans no matter what, in the most sustainable way”
“Before Power Planning I knew a lot about running a successful business, but didn’t implement it. In my first 4 weeks of Power Planning, I launched my podcast and consistently published episodes in a way that feels sustainable. I’m also consistent with my workouts, take regular clean rest and stick to my plans (even with big disruptions in my week).”
- Samara (Manifestation coach)
“Thanks to Power Planning I doubled my revenue”
“Before Power Planning, I had a never ending to-do list and I didn’t have much to show for it. Thanks to Power Planning I’ve made last year’s income in my first six months and hit my revenue goal for the year! I got a highly sought after position in a marketing agency, spoke at a virtual summit and am pitching clients and publications consistently too.”
- Erin (Copywriter)
Here’s what every perfectionist needs to know…
✅ When perfectionists follow the same planning advice as everyone else, we get in our own way (hello overthinking, procrastination, burnout).
✅ It doesn’t matter how many marketing courses you take if the way you’re managing your time is making your perfectionist mindset work against you (instead of FOR you).
✅ Anyone can learn how to plan properly as a perfectionist (especially if you’re already someone who LOVES planning and you’re already pretty good at it).
✅ Planning properly as a perfectionist automatically reduces 90% of the stress, overwhelm and pressure that’s been haunting your work week.
✅ When you’re Power Planning, you’ll be getting your most important tasks done consistently and sustainably, week after week after week, without burning out.
January is the best time to start Power Planning…
We perfectionists LOVE January but we all know that January motivation doesn’t last…
The best time to learn Power Planning is in January so that it’s there to support you when your new year motivation inevitably fades.
Power Planning is the best way to make sure that you’re able to actually do all the things you need to do to build your business, consistently and sustainably, all year round.
Imagine if the most productive week you had in 2022 was NORMAL and SUSTAINABLE for you, week after week after week.
Your $10k month becomes a $20k month and your revenue doesn’t stop growing - all because you started planning properly as a perfectionist.
What would it be worth to you ($$$) if you could…
✔ Get double the return on every hour you spend working on your business
✔ Follow through with your plans consistently and sustainably, even when you’re not motivated
✔ Wake up knowing exactly what you need to do (bye bye overwhelm)
✔ Confidently sell your product or service - and post on social media - without overthinking
✔ Have your most productive week, every week, without ever burning out
✔ Rest without feeling guilty, even during daylight hours
With Power Planning...
The effort you put into your *40 hour* work week has the same return as though you worked *80 hours* (without any burnout).
AKA the self-study course that will have you planning in a way that gets your perfectionist mindset working FOR you, instead of against you.
The Power Planning Course is specially designed so that you can sit down with your favourite drink 🫖☕️🧋🍷 and, in just one afternoon, learn everything you need to learn to start Power Planning right away!
The best thing about Power Planning is that it will get you out of your own way and have you doing everything you need to do, consistently and sustainably, for the entire year - even when you’re not feeling motivated and without burning out.
Imagine knowing that the effort you put into your *40 hour* work week had the same return as an *80 hour* work week - all because your Power Planning has given you the clarity and confidence that was needed to stay focused on what matters most.
1. The Power Planning Method 🗓
Perfectionists can’t follow the same planning advice as everyone else. When we do, we get in our own way. The good news is that anyone can learn how to plan properly as a perfectionist. I created Power Planning so it’s incredibly simple and effective - which means there are only 3 simple steps you need to follow: your Power Hour, Little Tweaks and Weekly Review.
The Power Planning Method requires a notebook and a digital calendar (either Google Calendar or iCal). And in The Power Planning Course I guide you through the entire Power Planning Method, from start to finish, so you’re never left wondering what to do if you underestimate how long a task takes or something unexpected disrupts your week.
2. The Power Planning Modules 🖥
You’ll get instant access to everything you need to start planning properly as a perfectionist with the Power Planning Modules. You’ll no longer start your week feeling overwhelmed or end the week feeling exhausted (even though you barely got anything important done). With Power Planning, the hard work you put into your business is guaranteed to pay off. You’ll be getting all of your most important tasks done consistently and sustainably, week after week after week.

3. Sam’s Colour-Coded Calendar 📆
If you’re anything like me, you’re a little nosy and love seeing how other people run their business - especially when they have a successful one. That’s why I’m sharing a behind the scenes look at my Power Planning so that you can see exactly how I’ve used Power Planning to make $1.5+ million in my business.
4. Growth Goal Check-ins 📩
Goal-setting is always the first step in planning but unfortunately, most goal-setting advice doesn’t actually work for perfectionists. That’s why, inside The Power Planning Course, you’ll learn how to set a 12 month Growth Goal for your business that sets you up for financial success in 2023.
After watching hundreds of my clients pursue their Growth Goals, I’ve been able to identify the common obstacles and mistakes that come up along the way.
So that you never get derailed, I’ll be helping you stay on track with regular ‘Growth Goal Check-In’ emails. These will make it easy to stay motivated with your Power Planning and provide a shortcut to success. (Note: you will set your 12 month Growth Goal during the Growth Goal Workshop in Module 2).
5. Workshop: Power Planning Your Way To Your First 100k Year 💰

I’ll be doing a deep dive into what you need to focus on in your Power Planning so that getting to $100k has never been easier.
6. Workshop: Power Planning Your Way To 100k Months & Beyond 💸

The investment for The Power Planning Course…
You get instant access to everything you need to start Power Planning for just one payment of $499 USD or two monthly payments of $279 USD.
Power Planning involves 3 simple steps that anyone can learn…
I created Power Planning so it’s incredibly simple and effective - which means there are only 3 simple steps you need to follow: your Power Hour, Little Tweaks and Weekly Review:
Step 1. Power Hour
At the beginning of every week you’ll follow a simple 60 minute process for scheduling needle moving tasks and guilt-free rest into your digital calendar. This turns your overwhelming to-do list into plans that you can calmly and consistently execute on. Plus your calendar will account for unexpected distractions and your personal commitments so you don’t overschedule yourself (i.e. you’ll be able to get everything done without burning out).
Step 2. Little Tweaks
Life happens and tasks can take longer than expected. This is why you’ll spend a little bit of time each day adjusting your calendar so your plans are always workable - and adding checkmark emojis so you feel productive and accomplished. This ensures you have always have a productive week, even when you’re not feeling motivated.
Step 3. Weekly Review
At the end of the week you’ll review your calendar to gain a deeper understanding of yourself and how you work best. You’ll be able to see progress and feel the momentum of your hard work. And you’ll know exactly how to make next week's plans even more enjoyable and effective.
Power Planning Success Stories

Here’s how Power Planning has helped clients get out of their own way and make more money.
“I’ve made more than 2X my revenue without burning out”

- Ann (Sustainability consultant)
“I made $20K in 3 months AND prioritized my health”

- Michelle (Graphic designer)
“My productivity skyrocketed as soon as I started Power Planning”
“In my first week of Power Planning, I committed to a solid morning routine, found the best time to schedule workouts (something that’s been on the back burner for many years), and found figuring out my needle moving tasks easy. I’m on schedule to complete the needle moving tasks in my sewing pattern business and I’ve planned clean rest activities I’ve never tried before!”
- Erin (Sewing pattern designer)
"My two businesses are making more money than they ever had once I started Power Planning"

“Making more money
and working less”

- Rachel (Artist)
“I was able to open my own clinic!”

“I no longer wait around for opportunities thanks to Power Planning”

- Naomi (Web designer)
“From unrealistic goal-setting to hitting my first revenue goal early”
“Before PGSD, I’d been getting in my own way for so long that all my goals felt unreachable. My sales had plateaued for years and I just knew I could do better.

And even without getting coached, I hit my first quarterly revenue goal in 8 weeks - a whole month early!”
- Samantha (Real estate agent)
“I went from $5K to $30K months in 5 months”

- Morgan (Digital creator)
Frequently Asked Questions
I love that you’re already good at planning! That’s a sign that you and your business have the potential to be even more successful than you already are…
Before I started Power Planning, I was pretty good at planning too - the only problem was that I wasn’t planning in a way that worked for my perfectionist mindset. I was doing all the things that worked super well for non-perfectionists (like to-do lists and paper planners and time blocking), the only problem was they were making me get in my own way.
When I created what I now call Power Planning, 90% of the problems I was having with procrastination, overthinking and burnout just dissolved. I hadn’t even realised that the way I was planning was a problem until I stopped following the conventional advice and started leaning into what actually worked for someone like me. Power Planning is what took my business from $100k per year to having $100k months - without burning out or having to be motivated 24/7.
Great question! I created The Power Planning Course because so many people had asked me for a quick and easy way to learn how to Power Plan.

Yes! Power Planning is specifically created for someone who tends to fall off the wagon with their plans (because this is a classic perfectionist thing to do). If you work in spurts of motivation, only get the important things done at the last minute and lose hours every day to overthinking and busywork, it’s only because you haven’t been planning properly as a perfectionist. And anyone can learn how with Power Planning.
100%. I’ve made over $1.5 million in my business since I started doing what I now call Power Planning. It’s what took my business from six figure years to six figures months. And I’m 100% certain that if I had Power Planning from the beginning of my business it wouldn’t have taken me so long (6 years!) to make my first $100,000!
