Business Planning Retreat, Planapaloozah

Join me as I guide you through a done-for-you

Virtual Business Planning Retreat in the comfort of your own office!

Attention: Highly-motivated, solo entrepreneurs who struggle to get it all done!

With no plan, it’s easy to live in breakdowns that:

  • waste your precious time 
  • make your workday feel chaotic
  • result in business clutter
  • make it hard to prioritize what to do
  • make you feel foggy and unfocused
  • leave administrative tasks undone
  • allow you to waste time online and on social media

Do you want:

  • more time to spend with family and friends
  • more clients and more profit
  • structure to help you prioritize your endless tasks
  • to get focused as soon as you start working each day
  • to make the most of business administrative days so you can get the nigglies done regularly
  • to STOP wasting time online and social media
  • to feel calmer, centered, and more productive next year?

Back Story

I know how hard it is to run a solo business. In fact, it’s crazy to try to do it off the cuff, without a plan.

I struggled and struggled to figure out how to be more efficient and effective yet often bordered on burnout.

I worked crazy long hours, wasted time on the wrong things, and almost quit many times!

Finally, after way too many sleepless nights, I realized that to juggle priorities and stay productive with the many hats I wore, I needed a way to easily prioritize my work so I could be productive it little bits of time.

There was no better way than planning.

I sat down and set goals. And then I created a TACTICAL PLAN TO GET IT ALL DONE!

From there, I could finally see on paper what was working and what wasn’t to get me toward my goals.

I could also see what tasks were producing a payoff – and those that were not.

When I had the data, I could prioritize tasks daily, distinguish what I had to do and drop or delegate the rest!

My dark days ended when I finally pulled all those pieces together.


Is this true for you?

  • Do you and your business have a love/hate relationship?
  • Do you get strapped with work at times and then hear crickets at other times?
  • Do you feel like you make the most of your time and focus on the right things to get you toward your goals?

My guess is – there’s probably some room for improvement.

How do I know?

Well, I have had the pleasure of helping hundreds of clients, and talked to thousands of business owner colleagues who are consistently overwhelmed, starved for time, and struggling with planning – so I decided to do something about it myself.

And THAT is how the Planapaloozah was born eight years ago!


The Planapaloozah 2019 is a done-for-you virtual self-paced business planning retreat for small business owners to get your year set up right and keep you productive and organized in your business so you have time for living!

How would you like to:

  • Really know your numbers: financial, social, networking, and results from last year?
  • Set realistic financial targets and how you will get there each quarter?
  • Know exactly what to do each month, week and day of 2019 to help you build your business?
  • Create your editorial and publishing calendar that lays out everything to post, produce and promote by week throughout 2019?
  • Effectively delegate non-revenue tasks to assistants, interns or helpers?
  • Be CEO and only focus on marketing and better serving your clients?

What if it was possible to get it done in business planning retreat in January 2019?

It is possible at Planapaloozah 2019!

How Does Annual Planning Support Work-Life Balance?

I see so many amazing entrepreneurs and small business owners try to wing everything regarding their business results…  While I’m all about spontaneity, I know there is a better, safer way to fly…

A Master Plan is the secret behind creating a profitable, enjoyable business that delivers on your revenue goals and provides the opportunity for a reasonable work-life balance… You can always change plans, but you cannot function well without a plan, to begin with.

One of the difficulties I faced in the early stages of my own business was finding the time to plan. I LOVED launching products, programs, and serving clients, but the administrative tasks kept me up at night!

I found myself looking at others and asking: How do they do it? How do these people create launch after launch, and event after event – and create a reliable income stream with a client-attractive platform?

The truth is – if you want to:

  • feel organized and in control of your time
  • prioritize your tasks weekly
  • enhance your productivity and end cyber-slippage
  • maintain your flexible schedule, and
  • manage reliable assistance through delegating administrative tasks

You MUST lay out your strategy, align your goals and implement a tactical plan for every part of your business

It’s that simple.

Why Plan Now?

Don't Wait!

This business planning retreat has been perfected for the small business owner for six years and enrollment fills up quickly. If you're on the fence - just make the leap - and the net will appear with done-for-you templates, modules to walk you through last year's results, gaps and plan your big year. So, don't wait... Grab your place today!

There's no stronger way to start off the year with a planning retreat.  It's a sweet and sane way to ring in the New Year!

Get your life in flow through a thorough and comprehensive business and life plan.  Not only will you kick off the year with a great networking opportunity with local colleagues, but you'll also be able to complete any 'unfinished planning tasks' the following week from the comfort of your own home office!

How do you plan for your business' success?

If you want to ensure your business success, save countless hours managing your business administration tasks, and avoid winging your business maintenance tasks by default, please sign up TODAY!

This program provides structure and pacing to motivate you to complete your most important planning tasks by the end of the year!  

Each module is kicked off by a recorded webinar. So, you'll block ton your calendar and then sit down and work through each segment using the webinar as a starting point. This allows you to avoid distractions and follow the proven planning process we've used with small business owners for years. Setting aside two days gives you the time you need to really go deep and declare your business and marketing strategy for the coming year. 

I designed Planapaloozah after listening to hundreds of clients and colleagues and watching their frustration with everything they had to accomplish! So, I set out to pull out all the stops, engage my 25+ years of corporate management training and design the perfect retreat for small business entrepreneurs. I know you because I AM YOU! We are balancing busy client work and trying to do the marketing on the fly. Unfortunately, too often this type of lifestyle leads to burnout, overwhelm and low client conversion. Therefore, following a solid tactical plan buys you back your time, keeps you organized and works in your favor for the entire year! But, seating is limited - so enroll today!

Your Planapaloozah Investment Includes

Realize that this retreat is an investment in yourself! And, who is better to invest in than yourself? Your time spent on these two days will pay you back a hundred-fold! In addition to the experience to network with hundreds of other participants, here's what your Planapaloozah program tuition includes:

  • Access to the recorded Planapaloozah Sessions

    The retreat is virtual, meaning you can attend from the privacy of your own location... Wherever you are.  Each module has recorded webinar sections so you'll have complete flexibility to get through all the modules and work the content when you can.

  • ©Planapaloozah 2019 Planbook, Customizable Worksheets & Business Planning Templates

    The program content has been perfected over eight years! Hundreds of small business owners have worked through the playbook and provided valuable feedback to perfect the planning tools, worksheets, and templates. As a result, the Planapaloozah Plan Book will guide you through the entire two-day process. In addition, you'll be able to capture your ideas and stay organized! The program is improved every year based on attendees' feedback. So you can be sure everything you get, including the valuable bonus materials, are helpful. As a result, you'll lay out your business and life plans by quarter, month, week and even by day that you've got this business on track!

  • Bonus 90 Min Private Coaching/Strategy Session

    The module approach allows you to focus ONLY on what you need. As a result, you're able to plan and implement what you want to accomplish next year in small, relevant segments. You have the opportunity to book a 90-minute private coaching session with me! This can be so helpful to answer your questions and mastermind your strategy for the coming year. We'll work together to focus on your own results, ideas, and strategies and go deep.

  • Recorded Segments for VIRTUAL DIY Retreat or for Review Back at the Office

    Just in case you can't be there the whole time, do not fear! The entire program is captured, and placed in the hub for your review all year long! Whenever you need to stop, drop and revisit your plan throughout the year, you're safe knowing that everything is there for you just when you need it.

  • BONUS Business Productivity Action Pack

    In addition to the group program materials, I've developed a Business Productivity Action Pack which includes valuable tools and resources. This bonus material alone is worth the price of the program! In addition to the workshop, you'll have everything you need to make your biz development and administrative days efficient and productive. You'll stay on track with calendars, week-at-a-glance downloadable planners, and monthly tracking tools to help support and celebrate your ongoing results!

  • Private Group for Accountability and Support: Team Planapaloozah!

    As if the program and bonus materials weren't enough - You'll be invited to join Team Planapaloozah! This group is private and hosts an open forum (available 24x7 because it's full of crazy business owners like you who work all hours... BUT, the good news is, they've all been through the program and will share openly about how to make the best use of your time. Often team members will share new resources, productivity links, tools and hacks to save time all year long! It's your option to join, and it's a great added plus to connect with other business owners who are working just like you! 

“This program is a Lifesaver! I'm a mompreneur with two small children, a full client schedule, a web TV show and a radio show! I have a lot on my plate. The Planapaloozah helped me focus on every aspect of my business and set realistic goals for my time, networking, business and revenue. Also, time spent with Cena and others in this program, allowed me to plan things out so I could delegate some tasks that took up valuable time. Last year, I was able to get support and not have to do everything entirely by myself. I cannot imagine taking the time to do this every year without her! It's totally worth the investment!”

How Does The Planapaloozah Work?

Planning for Business & Productivity, Work-Life Balance, Planapaloozah Business Planning Retreat

You get your very own done-for-you Business & Life Planbook. In order to allow you time to plan, the workshop is split into ten modules in total.

Each module is introduced with guided instructions (via the webinar) on how to use the worksheets and templates for each module. Then comes the fun part. You access the webinar recordings and then you get down to business right there. You use that time to start planning for your year!

As you're formulating your ideas and strategies for success, you'll have a great support group of like-minded entrepreneurs in the private Facebook group in case you have a question. Then whenever you want feedback, to brainstorm ideas, or even to mastermind with other business owners tap into the great level of support available there!

In addition, this group provides you access to live help and advice from others, plus tips and suggestions from Me and other alumni who've worked this content into their business planning process. Since we're all business owners in this group, many members post valuable helpful tips and resources that make life as an entrepreneur easier.

Then after you're done, you can schedule your 1-1 Private Strategy Coaching session with me. (This is valued at more than this workshop alone!)

Still not convinced? Here's some solid advice from Planapaloozah Alumni!

“The program was very valuable for me, in many ways. What I thought I would get when I signed up were: Tools, dedicated time to schedule myself to prioritize important issues, coaching and guidance about the items on which I should choose to focus and a disciplined/structured approach to getting it all executed... and all of those were met, for sure! But my top takeaways actually were: I realized that with a structured approach like this, it really doesn't take a long time to focus on something that seems undaunting, like a social media calendar. This is something I typically either put off or avoid because I feel like I never have time.

I also took away that I should be actively thinking about personal goals and professional goals in a combined way. They aren't separate efforts of energy, so they shouldn't be separate efforts of intention. And finally, this workshop helped me realize I'm not doing enough work behind the scenes in my business in a disciplined, scheduled way. With my plan in place, I realize that I can easily establish a routine with a few extra hours each week that will bring me much more infrastructure and a platform for success. Also, the concept of tapping into a community of peers was not even on my radar, and I look forward to seeing how the private accountability group may be a resource for me in the future. Thanks for the support and guidance!”

Just follow advice from Alumni!

“The Planapaloozah provided me with an opportunity to take a step back and work ON my business rather than just another day IN my business. This program provides great 'Done for Me' forms and structure that I've used again and again as the year went on. I really enjoyed the supportive group to bounce ideas off. Even though I'm not a mom myself, (just a serial entrepreneur), the program was really helpful to kickstart my planning process. I'm looking forward to enrolling again to get my planning done with the support and motivation of other entrepreneurs.”
Bethel Nathan ~ San Diego, CA Officiant and Co-Founder, Ceremonies By Bethel
“As a mompreneur juggling all the pieces of my busy life and family - It's so easy to put off planning for my business. Cena's Planapaloozah took all the guesswork and excuses out of it. With forms, Q & A, all kinds of group support and Cena's loving but firm cheerleading, I was able to review this past year - the successes and the still to do list. Then I could dream about next year, create a strategy and fill in the tactics on a quarterly and weekly basis. Knowing I have a plan for next year frees me up to focus on my clients and marketing. I could not have done it without Cena. Do yourself, your family and your clients a favor and get this program.”
Catherine Avery ~ Fairfield, CT Owner, Resovate Office Design

More From Planapaloozah Alumni!

Today I sat down with my new editorial calendar and worked for an hour. I have subjects planned out for a weekly eZine, weekly blog post, adjoining products/services to highlight w/ each, and Examiner articles every 3 weeks, for the last 2 weeks of this year, and the first 2 months of next year! It was so easy, and I can see how the future content creation will flow very easily as well. Thanks for helping me systematize Cena! It will definitely save me time, as well as creating a more cohesive calendar for me that feels under control. What a great way to step into the new year for me!

Dr. Dorothy Pang ~ San Bernadino, CA Certified Acupuncturist, Fertility Expert and Owner, AcuSpa

“I wasn't sure what to expect, but I did expect good guidance and a "systematic" approach. But I have to say... I'm blown away with the content you provided and forced us to review, work on and consider. It was welllll worth it. Instead of avoiding all the things I need to complete to market my own business, I've compiled my ideas and designed a schedule and support system to check things off my OWN list! It helped me, and I'll be able to help my clients and spend more time with my family because much of my strategy is done! Cena, this program will help so many people! Again congratulations on a job well done...thank you! Fabulous program!”

Will You Give Yourself The Gift of SanityThis Year?

Will 2019 be the year you finally invest in yourself, your sanity and your business success?

It is nearly impossible for solo and small business owners to do everything themselves! Not only is it difficult to be great at everything you do, you still need to serve your clients, create and service your products, and be accountable for all your business marketing and sales. Planning is a huge gap for most entrepreneurs! In fact, there are just not enough hours in the day. So this coming year, don't hold yourself hostage to your business planning and marketing all year long. Rather, join this program and get the heavy lifting out of the way early in the year!

To get all the benefits from this program, most participants say they'd pay double or triple, but I wanted to help you stay accountable to yourself, and give you a level of support and direction, I wanted to offer this opportunity for a no-brainer YES!

In summary, think of this as an investment in yourself and your own sanity!  Join me for the Planapaloozah this year! It's totally worth the time and effort, and you will be so happy you spent the time planning for all the time it saves on the other end. And, to top it all off, this one-of-a-kind planning program is already done for you! Don't go it alone this year. Enter the year with a solid strategy to create revenue, get organized and systematize your work and tasks so you can get more done, delegate tasks to others, and free up your time to do more revenue-generating work!

PS - Take advantage of the support and ease of planning to get your business on the right track next year! Don't delay - act now!
