Plan for a Happy Healthy 2013 with our new Entrepreneur Planner!

Oh My! Handmade 2013 Happy Healthy Entrepreneur Planner

Happy Thanksgiving to all our friends in the United States! Here in Canada I’ve been planning ahead for 2013 and looking at the gigantic load of blessings I have to be thankful for in 2012. Out of this came the decision to make the coming year the happiest, healthiest, most goodness filled of all and of course I want to do it hand in hand with you dear creative friends! 2012 has been fan-freaking-tastic in so many ways but I haven’t always been the greatest boss or paid enough attention to my own health. This entrepreneurship gig we’ve taken on is no easy task and being accountable to ourselves only works if we are good bosses!

My poor body has kept up with my mind for nearly a decade of self-employment without fail *knockonwood*. I’ve mostly survived on coffee and determination while I’ve busied myself with joyful world domination + parenting and haven’t spent much time thinking about maintaining my body for any length of time. Sure I intend to do better but pretty soon I get caught up in an idea and come up for air a few months later wondering what the heck just happened. Then I take super good care of myself for a few months…until my next great idea or amazing opportunity. Since my body rarely went on strike I kept pushing until the last year when I started struggling with feeling unwell on a regular basis. I recently learned there is a possibility I may have a chronic illness I can manage by being smarter with how I prioritize my health. It isn’t for sure, and I have to wait until May to see a specialist, but I’m not taking any chances. I’ve already been making lots of choices that lead to a happier, healthier, and generally more awesome me but I wanted something I could use to keep me on track daily that would be fun to share with our community.

Oh My! Handmade 2013 Happy Healthy Entrepreneur Planner

The 2013 Happy Healthy Entrepreneur Planner is my gift to creative entrepreneurs everywhere and an early birthday present for myself. It is a gentle push to remind us of the importance of finding our own dynamic equilibrium-a flow between expansive busy business and contemplative practice. Part loving reminder to care for ourselves and part kick in the pants to get our to-do’s done, my hope is that all 100+ pages of colourful printable goodness act as a support to help us plan our year. From remembering to drink water everyday, to tracking where we put our precious hours, to all those pesky to-do’s & to-pick-ups, this is my way of giving you and your business a little hug and helping hand every day of 2013.

What is inside the 2013 Planner:

  • A guide to our monthly focus words for 2013
  • 2013 annual calendar
  • Important dates to remember
  • 12 monthly calendar sheets
  • 12 monthly challenge & comfort worksheets
  • 12 weekly time tracking sheets
  • 12 weekly blog planners
  • 12 daily planning sheets (with healthy reminders!)
  • 12 meal plan/shopping lists
  • 12 co-ordinating note paper sheets
  • 12 sets of colour co-ordinating bookmarks
  • Dynamic Equilibrium print
  • Happy Healthy Year print
  • love, support, and cheerleading!

To keep the planning party going all year long I’ll be designing and posting extra worksheets starting the first Sunday in January along with thoughts on our 12 focus words for 2013. My hope is that you will join me and we’ll travel along together with our trusty planners!

Since good things are better shared as a little gift when you buy the planner you get a second copy with a special cover for gifting to a friend or fellow creative adventurer. Giving away a year of happy, healthy goodness feels pretty darn good so we’re already off to an excellent start! You can find the 2013 Happy Healthy Planner in the Oh My! Shop or get your copy now by clicking on that big cheerful heart.

Let the planning begin!

Spread the word of our happy healthy plan far & wide:

      Hi Robin I’m so happy you’ll be planning along with us! You should get an email really soon with a download link so you can get your planner let me know if you don’t get the link within an hour or so (it usually happens right away though so be sure to check your junk folder)!

    I love the planner! It’s so colorful and I love the healthy focus of these planners.. I do find it hard to change habits, but slowly I’ve made progress. I also walk my kids to school and I remember the first couple of times I got all sweaty and tired and thought what did I get myself into, but now it’s a breeze. I changed because I HAD to, but I still need to change because I WANT to. Thanks making it beautiful and easy to track!

    • Jessika Hepburn

      Thank you for your comment & your support Lisa!!! I can SO relate to it, the first week of taking the girls to school on the bike (after not biking since I was 19) I was so sweaty, huffy, & embarrassed-I must have looked like such a mess. But now I can fly all over town & I’ve lost over 60lbs without it feeling like a chore anymore. Sometimes change needs to be forced on us but it feels so good! I can’t wait to adventure through 2013 with you, you’ve already done so much awesome stuff in 2012!

    Could you more amazing?!!

  • Jacqui Mee a Bee

    I just bought mine, can’t wait to really get stuck into planning my year. After a very quiet year I hope things will be better next year.

    • Jessika Hepburn

      You are the sweetest Jacqui!!! I can’t wait to see you write all over it with your awesome pen supply:))) I’ve noticed an ebb & flow to biz life and I bet after your quiet year you will bust out into 2013!

  • Fatema

    Hi Jessika I just discovered you on twitter! How excited am I that you are a fellow Nova Scotian!!!!

    • Jessika Hepburn

      Hi Fatema! I love connecting with local creatives! I am glad you found me & we’ll have to connect in person sometime soon!

  • Fatema

    Love that idea!

  • Emma

    I love everything you do!!! I’ve found it incredibly helpful over the last year! 🙂 and I would love to grab the calendar but I am from Australia and I’m not sure if the dates match up :/

    • Jessika Hepburn

      Hi Emma! Oh my goodness I never even thought of that-are your calendars a day ahead? I don’t have any holidays listed on the calendar so that they would work no matter where you live & I have sold a couple of copies to Australians already-if the dates are a problem let me know & I’ll see what I can do:)

  • Melissa Andrews

    One word: Amazing! This is definitely going on my Wish List. I cannot wait to rock 2013 and this is a must for my no fail plan. You have been such an inspiration this year and I have no doubt 2013 will be more of the same. Thank you for always being awesome!

  • Joy Charde

    Soooooo Awesome! Thank you so much for this great resource! You rock!

  • Jess Jones

    Hi Jessika.

    I’m in Australia. I’ve just paid for 2 of your planners and just want to make sure you deliver here! I probably should’ve asked you first!

  • Jess Jones

    Sorry, should’ve read it properly that it’s printable…wasn’t sure why it asked me for a delivery address!

    • Jessika Hepburn

      Hi Jess! Hopefully you’ve got your planners & all is well!

  • Claire Malone

    Hi is this just a printable calendar? I ordered it without reading everything (yes, i am rather impulsive!!) i wanted to gift this to a stylist on my team- is it possible to gift it?

    • Jessika Hepburn

      Hi Claire! The calendar is printable & is absolutely giftable-you can send it along in an email or print out the special cover page that you get with the gift copy. Let me know if you have any other questions!
