Your Best Year 2016: A Sneak Peek

I am beyond thrilled to offer you a sneak peek at Your Best Year 2016: Productivity Workbook and Creative Business Planner! It comes out just one week from today on Tuesday, October 13, 2015, and I can hardly wait for you to have a copy in your hands. This year’s edition is like no other …

A glimpse inside Your Best Year by Lisa Jacobs

Your Best Years were made to evolve with you and your business. If you’re not familiar with the history, I built a customized business planner back in 2014 for myself. I needed a way to organize and gain a better perspective on my business. The planner worked so well for me that I listed it for sale on my blog and, and it quickly reached best-selling status in its category.

Though it was well-received, Your Best Year 2014 was printed in color (making it expensive to print for both physical + digital owners). It was a bulky 200+ pages, most of which were complete weekly calendars for a 15-month spread. I found this not only cumbersome, but wasteful. February is still a best-selling month for the project, and in this edition, that meant four months worth of wasted paper. I vowed never to make that mistake again!

I was absolutely blown away by the success of 2014, and before long, Your Best Year 2015 was released to even more success! In last year’s edition, I streamlined the book down to a thin 78 pages, organized the goal-setting exercises into a tidy 10-step process, and made the book black and white to increase its affordability.

Your Best Year 2015 doubled the previous year’s results in both sales and success. I myself loved the 10-step process, but found the book lacked in follow-through. I don’t know about readers, but after the New Year’s review and reflection were over, I never felt called back to the book in reference or review. I created an entirely separate system to hold myself accountable to the big plans I’d made, and I knew early on that I would need to incorporate that sense of accountability and goal-tracking into Your Best Year 2016.

Your Best Year 2016: Creative Business Planner

I love telling you what was wrong with previous editions of Your Best Years because it goes to show how much I think about this project and work to improve it with each passing year. The fact of the matter is, goal-setting works + it can take months, if not years to get to your desired destination without guidelines and route markers to follow on your path.

At the same time, your path is going to be creative. That is the nature of you! Because you are creative, traditional career trajectories and goal-setting formulas simply don’t work. Your journey is fluid, as your planner should be!

That’s why I am so proud to announce that Your Best Year 2016 is designed so that you can constantly reinvent your plans throughout the year.

If you’re anything like me, you try to plan six months in advance, only to end up with a planner full of cross-outs, chicken scratch, and arrows to redirect it all. Your Best Year 2016 is uniquely inventive that way: it’s designed to get you OUT of the daily scramble (because we’re the only small businesses in the world that try to operate day-by-day), all the while allowing for your annual plans to shift and align with your interests as you go.

For the first time ever, you can create a fluid, long-term plan using a system designed specifically for creative entrepreneurs.

  • Lisa,

    This sounds exactly like what I need. I’m a great one for making notes on whatever I can grab my hands on. Then, as you may have already guessed, I lose those notes! This would keep me so much better organized! I love that you include space for both personal and professional reviews. After all, those categories combine to make us who we are.

    Thank you for all the work you’ve put into this and everything you do. I’ve learned so much from you.


  • Just ordered and Im SO EXCITED! I can’t wait to get started! Thank you so much for all you do, you provide such an incredible wealth of information, I can’t tell you how much I appreciate everything you do!
