Thought Partnership & Marketing Strategy for creative entrepreneurs

We know how hard it is to:

  • Find the time to work on your own business in addition to producing your work on a daily basis

  • Stick to the goals you set at the beginning of the year when things change so quickly

  • Not only create goals that feel aligned with your mission, but also develop a plan to see them through

So we’re teaming up to bring you the best of what we offer!

Why-centered goals


Systems to help you see them through

Each Quarterly Planning event includes:

  • 60-minutes of instruction from both Maggie + Mara

  • Worksheets to assist you create your quarterly goals, followed by your 3-month action plan

  • Ample time to set goals and create your action plan during our time together

  • Individual Hot Seat with Maggie + Mara to help you break through any blocks and create solutions

  • Closing Q&A to share what you’ll be working on and ask for any support from the group that you may need

All of this will be done in a safe, judgment-free space where you can share openly about what you’re working on and receive honest feedback about how to move those ideas forward.

Think of this as part accountability group, part working session, part visioning circle all wrapped up into one. We’ll provide you with a compassionate approach to goal setting for your business that meets you where you are and celebrates all of your wins!

Each event happens in Austin, TX from 1-4pm on the dates listed below.

Feeling like you want to count on more consistent support? Then consider signing up for the 2018 Package, which grants you exclusive access to the Your Year Retreat in December where we’ll celebrate all of our wins of 2018, spend some time reflecting, journaling, meditating, and yoga-ing. 


This is perfect for you if:

  • You are a small business owner craving some time in a supportive, compassionate environment to plan your next quarter

  • You no longer want to establish arbitrary goals, but instead are eager to explore values-based goal setting

  • You are looking for support to help you understand what specific action steps you need to take so that you can reach your goals

  • You need to set aside the time in your calendar to do this work, otherwise you know it likely won’t get done

Hi, it’s really nice to meet you!

We met when a mutual friend we both love + admire connected us saying that she felt we had to get together. With Maggie as the WHY and Mara as the HOW, there was instant chemistry when we started talking about the work we do. When the conversation turned into a brainstorming session, the quarterly planning collaboration was born.

We came into this experience wanting to explore a new avenue of sharing our strengths to business owners in a really intentional way, and this series felt like the perfect way to create a space that allows you to not only honor your hard work and reflect on the past quarter, but also to dedicate some time to planning for the next and taking those first steps towards putting that plan into action. We kept hearing from clients and other business owners that they could really use the support and accountability to carve out the time to do this work, so we hope that this series is exactly what you need to continue succeeding and growing in your business.

We sincerely hope to see you there!






Do I have to be an entrepreneur or business owner to attend?

For this initial series, we are being really intentional in that we are catering the material to entrepreneurs and business owners. However, it will be useful to entrepreneurs at various stages of their business. If you have yet to launch, this could be a really great support for you as you do. That said, we would recommend that at the very least you have a solid idea of your product or offering and an estimated launch date.

What if I have tried setting goals in the past, and they never seemed to work?

That’s OK! We understand what it’s like to try a few different methods before we settle on something that works for us, so that’s why we’re crafting each event to start with some instruction, followed by individual attention so that we can help you find a solution that will work for you this time. We won’t have you grasping for vapid goals based on vanity statistics. We’ll first get in touch with what you desire on a soul level to help guide the creation of your goals. From that honest place, we’ll then help you develop an action plan to see those goals come to fruition in a way that supports how you work.

What if I’m not in Austin?

Not in Austin? Not to worry! Each Quarterly Workshop will be recorded and available for sale, along with accompanying worksheets, typically within a week of the event.

Go ahead and grab your Workshop Recordings & Worksheets for Q2 HERE and Q3 HERE

What do I need to do to prepare?

You don’t need to prepare anything! We’ll guide you through each step, so whether you’re coming with a ton of ideas and not sure how to pare it down, or you’re stuck in a rut unsure of even one next step, our initial exercises will help you find the clarity you seek.

What should I bring?

We’ll have printed copies of the worksheets for you, but if you’d like to bring an additional notebook—or for all of our analog friends who still use paper planners—feel free to bring your planner. Oh, and we also do our best thinking in our comfy clothes, so please come as you are! To be honest, we’ll likely both be in yoga pants!

What if I buy the 2018 Package because I want to go to the Your Year Retreat, but I end up not being able to attend one of the other Quarterly Planning events?

In the event that you, as a 2018 Package holder, are unable to make it to one of the Quarterly Planning events, we will make an audio recording of the workshop, and send that to you with the worksheets from that day. You’ll receive the audio file and worksheets within 2-3 business days after the event day, and you will be able to email us your action plans for feedback. Unfortunately, you won’t have the opportunity for an in-person hot seat with us if you miss the actual event.

Are you ready to do the work?


I want to start with Q4 for now.
