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.

Before I created the Planapaloozah business planning retreat, I struggled to figure out how to be more efficient and effective. As a result, I spent years bordering 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 to overcome chaos than a thorough plan.

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.


This successful experience was the seed that has grown into Planapaloozah the premier business planning spa retreat for entrepreneurs.

Is this true for you?

  • Do you and your business have a love/hate relationship?
  • Are you strapped with work at times and then hear crickets at other times?
  • Is your time focused on the right things to get you toward your goals?

My guess is – there’s probably some room for improvement in your approach to planning.

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 business planning spa retreat was born twelve years ago!

The Planapaloozah business planning retreat is a done-for-you 3-day off-site workshop for small business owners.

It’s designed to help you get your business tasks, editorial calendar, life and business events scheduled. Once you’ve planned it out, you’ll stay productive and organized in your business so you have time for living!

If you want to:

  • Learn from your financial, social, and networking results last year
  • Set realistic income targets and plan how to achieve them each quarter
  • Know exactly what to do each month, week and day that delivers results in your personal life and business
  • Plan your editorial and publishing calendar
  • Brainstorm the content to post, produce and promote by week throughout the year
  • Effectively delegate non-revenue tasks to assistants, interns or helpers
  • Be the CEO and only focus on marketing and better serving your clients

You can do it all at the Planapaloozah Business Planning Spa Retreat

With out a plan, breakdowns happen that:

  • waste your precious time – your most valuable asset
  • 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

How does the  Planapaloozah business planning retreat 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

FINALLY the chance to learn how to deliver on your revenue goals and create 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.

That’s what is available to you at the Planapaloozah business planning spa retreat.

Three days gives you the time you need to really go deep into your business and marketing strategy for the coming year. The third day will help you get all that content out of your head and down on paper so your editorial content and social media calendar will be ready to implement!

I created this one of a kind premier business planning spa retreat 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.

“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!”

Still not convinced? Here are some words from our 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!”

Kathy Vines ~ Eastern, MA & NH, Clever Girl Organizing,



“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, Productivity By 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 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

Kelly Schaefer ~ Yardley, PA Owner, Task Complete Personal Concierge & Errand Services

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 well 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!”[/testimonial3]


Will You Give Yourself The Gift of Sanity For Next Year?

To get all the benefits from this program, most participants say they'd pay double or triple. But I want to encourage you to stay accountable to yourself and provide support and direction. I priced this exclusive retreat at a rate that will help you reach an EASY - HECK YES!

In summary, think of this as an investment in yourself and your own sanity!  Join me for the Planapaloozah business planning retreat! It's totally worth setting the time aside and getting your thoughts together for the new year.  Time spent planning saves your time later.

Don't go it alone next year. Plan a solid strategy to stay organized while creating the revenue and the results you want.
