Stop stressing over the big goals you have in your business. Get clarity, focus and a plan of action.
You know there’s something more to business than working too much and not spending enough time with your family (let alone by yourself).
But after months (years!) of working the grind, you’re finding that you:
- Feel overwhelmed by all the things you need to get done every day, just to keep the doors open
- Are in the weeds of your business and can’t implement the crazy big (and fun) idea you’ve come up with
- Lack a solid plan to follow to help your business move forward
- Have no idea where to focus your time and energy–so you spread yourself too thin
- Are embarrassed by the mess that is your business
- Want to be a better leader, better mom, better spouse, you name it…
Instead of continuing the struggle, do something about it. Stop being an employee of your business. Be a better leader and finally FEEL successful in your business.
But you feel like you’ve tried it all: the masterminds, the coaching, the accountability groups, the courses. And you still don’t have the vision and clarity you need.
BIZ PLANNING BOOTCAMP IS YOUR ANSWER TO
YOUR BIG VISION IN BITE-SIZED ACTIONS
You’re ready for the next level of business, if only you could figure out exactly what you needed to do to get there.
The secret sauce is knowing what you need to do in your business and then narrowing your scope.
It’s about not getting caught up in trying to emulate someone else’s business–because we’re all our own unique CEOs. What works for them probably won’t work for us. (And that’s okay!)
It’s about being true to you and your dreams and capitalizing on your own unique talents–and letting go of the rest.
But where do you even start? Biz Planning Bootcamp.
This 6-module, at-your-own-pace course will help you to:
- Layout all the priorities in your business, so you can finally have clarity
- Narrow your focus so you can check things off your dreaded “to-do” list
- Digitize your entire business process with effective, proven templates
- Manage the projects you have in front of you — and move past non-priorities
- Know how to delegate responsibilities and scale for the best team members
- Make more money and help more people, all while feeling less stressed
And when you’re done? You’ll feel organized and effective, like the true leader of your business. You’ll put away the “playing business” hat and put on the “business owner” hat (or tiara, if you prefer).
Here’s the thing that no one else will tell you: figuring out priorities and strategic objectives is the same for every business, whether it’s a Fortune 500 company, a brick and mortar, a non-profit, a PTA or a growing side hustle. I’ve done it all, with all these organization types and more. And every time, it’s the exact same process, which is why I’m making this available to you.
It’s all just a matter of mindset and focus. But there’s really no just about it.
There are 7 strategic objectives that every business needs in order to thrive.
It’s impossible to focus on all of them at once, so you have to prioritize.
What you need to focus on
Scaling Your Team
Financial + Business Growth
ALL OF THE ABOVE, RIGHT!? WRONG!
That’s what you’ve been doing since Day One, and now it’s time to try something different. Something that works.
Biz Planning Bootcamp utilizes the Strategic Mapping ModelTM. With this tested and tried model, you’ll identify the top priorities in your business for the next year and the next quarter. Then you’ll identify tangible outcomes, so you know when you’ve achieved your goal. Next, you’ll break down each outcome into projects and daily tasks so you have a plan of action that’s doable (without the overwhelm).
Of course, none of this works if you don’t shift your mindset to taking action and holding yourself accountable to getting the work done. By the end of this course, you’ll be ready…and so will your team!

KIND WORDS FROM HAPPY BOSSES
Jennifer Grayeb, Productive and PrettyNatalie’s strategic mapping framework was a GAME CHANGER for me and my business. I was able to really prioritize all the things I wanted to move forward in my business, get laser focused, and execute. She introduced me to in May and by October I had (1) created, launched and SOLD OUT a physical product, (2) created and launched a profitable course, and (3) created and sold a profitable eBook.
LET’S DO THIS!
These modules will guide you through creating your very own strategic plan for your business that will get you through your next quarter and beyond.
You’ll walk away knowing exactly what to focus on in 2018 to meet your business goals–without stress-induced grey hairs or ignoring your family.
And you’ll even have your business plan digitized, with an organized Trello or Asana board that I provide to you. You choose which works best for you; I don’t play favorites!
As we move into next year, you’ll have time for date nights, playtime with the kids and cuddling up with a glass of red. Because you’ll have blinders to keep you on track and that CEO hat on.
And when you’re done, I’m not just going to ghost on you. I know you’ll have questions once you determine what your strategic objectives are. That’s why I created a private Facebook group, just for you and your partners in strategic-planning crime, where I can support you. I’ll be there throughout the week to respond to questions, and I’ll also provide a once-monthly Ask me Anything call.
Not only that, but you can expect more personalized follow-up from me, with additional resources to help you work through your strategy roadblocks.
Biz Planning Bootcamp breaks down the exact process (Strategic Mapping ModelTM) I go through with my 1:1 clients, at a fraction of the cost.
And you get to work on it at your own pace, with lifetime access to upgrades. (Score!)
The best part?
Biz Planning Bootcamp is a repeatable framework that you can implement inside your business again and again with your team. Because business planning is never a one-and-done task; it’s something you need to do for the life of your business.
About Your Instructor
I’m Natalie, your virtual Project Manager and Chief of Staff. I spent 15 years in Fortune 150 companies, working in human resources, project management, and leadership before leaving to help entrepreneurs embrace their inner CEO. I manage a handful of 7-figure businesses, making sure all the cogs fit together and are well-oiled so the CEO can go on doing what s/he does best: act as the visionary of her business. I also work with aspiring 6- and 7-figure business owners to get systems in place and strategic plans on the right track.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Is this course for me?
There’s nothing worse than buying a course and realizing that it’s not a great fit. This course is for anyone who has been in business at least six months to a year and who is ready for some clear direction. If you have a solid business idea but haven’t been as profitable as you’d like, you’ll gain the forward momentum you need to start making some money. If you’ve been in business a bit longer, you’re going to gain the clarity and focus you need to diversify, scale, grow and run your business with more ease.
What’s your refund policy?
As a digital course, you’ll have full access to the entire course when it goes live on Dec. 15, making it difficult to return. However, if you put in the work and don’t feel like the course material will benefit you in your business, I’m happy to refund your money up to 30 days after the release of the content. If you feel like this applies to you, contact me.
I already have my goals for this year. Why should I take this course?
I love seeing people set and achieve goals, and good for you for planning ahead! If you already have your goals set in stone, do you have a plan of action to get there? Do you have the focus in your business you need to achieve your goals? Probably not. Biz Planning Bootcamp will help you to further refine your goals so you can achieve them–because you’ll know exactly where to focus your energy.
If I take this course, will I be ready to tackle the entire year?
Yes and no. Business planning is not something you can do once and be done. In fact, I don’t recommend doing big long-term planning like you would in a big organization. After all, your life and business change all the time. This course was designed so you can repeat it every quarter, so you are constantly on the right path and focusing on the right objectives.
What kind of support will I have if I get stuck?
Strategic planning can be difficult, especially if you don’t have a team or mastermind group to bounce ideas off of. That’s why I’ve created a private Facebook group to support you, answer your questions and build a tribe of supportive (and motivated) business owners. We’ll be your sounding board and accountability buddies so you don’t have to worry about getting stuck. Plus, I’ll be offering a once-monthly Ask Me Anything group call so you can pick my brain. No more excuses!
kind words from happy bosses
Holly Southerland, CEO Waco Home OrganizersHaving the opportunity to tap into Natalie’s genius of the Biz Planning Bootcamp has completely changed my outlook on growing a healthy business. Lightbulbs galore went off in my head when I learned what the 7 strategic objectives are and how to implement them, only after determining my mission, vision, and values. The win for me is not that I execute it perfectly every quarter and year, but that I have a system for my many thoughts and ideas. It’s just like I tell my clients when I declutter and organize their homes – “it’s not about having a perfectly tidy and clean house all the time- that’s not realistic. It’s about having a system to put things back into whenever you want or need to.” Natalie gave me a dose of my own medicine by teaching me what a system looks like that I can use repeatedly when I have big dreams but don’t know how to wrangle my 6000 ideas. I no longer feel stressed or overwhelmed when sitting down for planning sessions. I feel excited because I have a strategic map. Thank you Natalie for a wonderful course that has given me roots and wings to grow the business of my dreams! I reference it often in conversations and recommend every type of business owner to utilize this framework because it works over and over again.
