Best Laid Plans Live FAQ


1- Do I have to go through Best Laid Plans Academy first to get the most out of this retreat?

No! BLPA is designed to help you hone your planning techniques at every level. While these techniques certainly come in handy and will be mentioned at BLP Live, the focus of the live event is more on helping guide you through your own planning for the coming year. It is open to both BLPA alumni and everyone else!

Best Laid Plans Live is a protected time + space in a relaxing setting for you to truly think through what you want to get out of the coming months. I (SHU) LOVE doing my own planning retreats, so BLP Live is about sharing the experience with others, making connections, and getting lots of planning done!

2- Is BLP Live specific to those who plan on paper?

Absolutely not – so many different tools work for different people! We will have a paper workbook, but if you are primarily a digital planning, you can bring your laptop and create your lists, calendars, routine ideas, and vision boards in any format you would like.

3- So . . . we are just going to plan together? Couldn’t I do that at home?

We will be leading you through different aspects of planning your year. You could probably do some of it at home, and in fact will again be a digital version this year. But attending the live event will ensure you have the protected time and space to actually DO IT! You will also get in some relaxation, connection, and fun.

4- How long do I have to register?

Since I have specific parts of the hotel reserved and they have capacity, space is limited. Please note, if you register early the price is $200 lower. Early bird pricing ends after 11:59 pm on 3/10/24!

5- Can my dietary restrictions be honored?

We will work with the hotel to ensure any dietary restrictions are provided for. After registration, we will be sending a survey asking for any special dietary needs.
