Working with a coach is an investment we may think of as an "expense" rather than an "investment" in ourselves. When we see the value of working with a coach and how it helps us to uplevel every area of our life, then we'll see the magic happen. The inspiration behind today's episode is my own coaching experience with Pat Flynn, host of Ask Pat and Smart Passive Income podcasts. I'm seriously a fan girl. Just sayin.' You'll hear me get pretty transparent about my struggles with Power Purls Podcast, and how I asked him for help. Let's just say, his advice was truly mind-blowing and a total game-changer. Check out my commentary about my session with Pat in this episode of Power Purls Podcast.

Welcome to the very first episode of 2019 where you will meet Stephanie Palmer, creator of The Quilter's Planner! Last year, Stephanie reached out to me to help her create The Knitter's Planner, and as an organization and planning fanatic, of course I was thrilled to collaborate with her on this exciting venture!

In this interview, we dive into the details, and share what makes The Knitter's Planner unique, and why you'll want to get your hands on one if knitting and staying organized are on the top of your list! We are working hard to create a holistic approach to the planning process so you can connect the dots in your life and knitting, and customize the planner to suit your own creative personality.
