The solo entrepreneur’s era is upon us. It’s about to be the best year for creative businesses everywhere – I feel it in my bones. And nothing will compliment that movement better than Your Best Year: 2016 Productivity Workbook and Creative Business Planner. Oh boy, here it comes!
Today you’re getting a first look at the 2016 cover (above), a sneak peek inside the book (it’s editing day! below) and, because this post is sponsored in part by Staples, you’re also invited to enjoy some special bonuses and a giveaway!
I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to make it happen already. It’s time to break free of the startup cocoon and claim ownership of a thriving creative business as a successful entrepreneur. If you’re with me, it’s time to set the stage for your best year yet.
In this edition, you’re getting more exercises, prompts, motivation, and inspiration than ever before! More details coming soon, but for now, here’s a sneak peek from editing day:
As I was working on this year’s edition of the book, Staples reached out as part of their campaign to offer cost effective solutions for creative entrepreneurs. I knew they had fabulous copy & print services, so I immediately started brainstorming the possibilities to pair their services with the upcoming release of Your Best Year! One of the things that I haven’t revealed yet is that this edition of the book showcases a new goal-setting system that has helped me accomplish more this year than ever before.
“High-performing people set goals religiously and track them religiously. They obsess about whether they’re hitting or missing those goals, and why. If you don’t set and track goals, life just passes you by.” – Cameron Herold
And with my new system in play, I needed to keep my goals front and center. So, I started taping the list of things I had to do on the wall. Not so pretty, right? I know! But, it worked because I had my plan in plain sight for constant review and reminders. Without it, it’s too easy to fall back into old routines and unproductive habits. So when Staples offered to sponsor a post, I discovered the best-kept secret on the planet … Oh my goodness. SO pretty, right? This is my design printed onto Staples’ black-and-white engineering print. I was able to print this 18 x 24″ wall planner for only $1.99 a sheet, and the best part? It’s matte, drawing-like paper, which makes it perfect for the pens or pencils of your choice. I’m in love.
If you want to print something of your own on the black and white engineering print (or any other service available at Staples’ copy & print center), you can upload your file online and pick it up the same day (which is what I did for these gorgeous wall planners), or bring a USB to the store with your file on it.
In the meantime, I decided to pass my savings onto you and used my Staples’ order to create 100 Limited Edition Kits for the launch of Your Best Year 2016. Your Best Year lovers rejoice! It’s valued at $64 PLUS free shipping and handling on your order,
all for one low price – Now sold out.

I also order a copy for a friends creative business. Thank you for creating this planner for all kinds of creative businesses!
The planner looks great! Looking forward to a great year ahead 🙂
Love the preview! I especially love the goal setting chart!
Wow this is exactly what I need! I’ve been listing my goals in a notebook, but I wanted to take them to the next level on the wall. I’m re-doing my home office and these additions would be perfect! Thank you!
I think this will help me to finally get organized !! Love this idea! Thanks.
What an inspiration you are! Thanks for all you do!
I love reading your posts. They are so encouraging and upbeat. Would love to win the. 2016 goodies to get me on track.
I am ready for 2016 and need your help to be successful!
I love Staples and am fortunate to have a really great print & copy manager in our local store. I’ve had all kinds of things done there for my shop, my customers, and my clients. Always great results. (Some even better than the ones you do online and wait to have shipped to you!)
Awesome add-ons, Lisa! 🙂
SO fabulous to hear that + I bet they appreciate the props as well. Thanks, Lara!
Looks exciting! I hope I win!
This looks like a great planner! Who can’t use more organization and structure?! Looks like a perfect way to organize creative ideas into action plans! I look forward to seeing it when it is launched. Great work!
I really need this in my life right now! I’m very disorganized in general so I need something to keep me on track.
Thanks for the giveaway! I just found your blog via Pinterest. I love seeing your pins over there! Looking
forward to reading more here on your blog.
Great looking planner.
I need to get organized! This is exactly what I’ve been looking for.
This is perfect timing. I have been looking for something like this that didn’t cost a fortune! Everything seems to be SO well thought out!
Looking forward to 2016 and the new planner.
Very excited for this coming year! I have a feeling a lot of changes are coming my way, and hopefully your products will help!
Thanks for the inspiration.
I keep trying and failing to use Evernote as a planner, but I think I do better with actual paper. I’d love to try this out – it looks awesome!
So excited for Your Best Year 2016, Lisa! Can’t wait to get my copy! 🙂
I need this!! So excited!
I am so excited for this! I really really want to win it! 🙂
Love that hack of getting a huge print like that! It would be so helpful. I currently have my monthly goals in a planning binder, but I find I forget them easily or put them off because I have to open the binder to remind me to work on them.
I’m a planning junky! This would be great 🙂
What a great giveaway! I love the idea of having such a large planner.
Congratulations to your Best Year yet! You should be very proud. The new design looks lovely.
I am so ready for 2016! I am ready to shed the weight of, “I cannot do this, I am going to fail.” I am tired of putting up every excuse I can think of, to deter me from what I love to do. I enjoy making items that others will cherish, but I am done thinking that I am not good enough, because I do not have a storefront. This was exactly what I needed to read today, thank you!
This looks like a lifesaver!
Well, I never had a planner that helped me yet, would love to give this one a shot 🙂 Making a place of honor on my wall :)))
This looks soooo good! Hope I win! Keep up the fabulous work! X
I am super excited for 2016! I’m ready to make a lot of things happen and this planner sure would help me!
I am super excited for this! Im ready to make 2016 the best year yet!
Bring on 2016! I’m ready for awesomeness!
Woo! This sounds so exciting! Way to go, Lisa!
I like the idea of having a workbook and a planner all rolled into one. 😀
What a great giveaway!
Got the 2015 planner so cannot wait for 2016!
So glad I found you on Pinterest! This looks amazing! 🙂
So happy to see the planner coming ! 🙂
Hi Lisa! I’ve started YBY 2016 and I’m already addicted! I love the calendar/planner in it. You’ve clearly put a lot of thought and hard work into it. Can you tell me what day planner you use? I’m honestly thinking I’ll just use the one in the book because it has everything I need. However, I know you have a great reason to use a different one, and I was curious as to what it is. I’m such a geek and don’t want to miss out on anything! Thanks again, Lisa! I truly appreciate all you have done to help us creatives!
I have just about EVERY day planner on the market, but Erin Condren is my go-to and stand-out favorite. I like breaking my goals down there, and I’ll be sharing a look into mine here soon to show you how the day planner works with your copy of Your Best Year.
I’m SO GLAD you’re loving Your Best Year 2016!
Just got your book and loving it! It inspired me to post about creativity on my blog, among all of the challenges I began in 2016 I am loving curling up with my pen and your book for the BEST year EVER.
