Presenting: Planned + Present

Over 650 Mums have Used the Planned + Present Online Course to Change their Lives into Planned, Quality Life with Family

A Seven Week, Seven Lesson Online Course to Help Mums Transform the Chaos of Family Life

A family-focused e-course Created for Mums, by a Mum of five

Hello mum. My name is Nicole Avery. I am a mum to 5 gorgeous (most of the time!) kids. There was once a time in my life when I had many of the problems you face today as a mum.

I found it challenging to spend enough time with the kids. I was in constant “doing mode”, going from task to task, not being present with the family even if I was actually with them. While not being able to spend meaningful time with my kids was definitely the biggest challenge, there were other issues that were really getting to me:

  • My to do list was never ending.
  • I felt I was always doing housework.
  • It took forever to find things around the house.
  • I wasn’t getting enough sleep.
  • I was spending more on store-bought food than I would have liked.
  • I struggled to make time for the small things I loved – I couldn’t even imagine spending time doing something like reading a book!
I knew I had to change…

This was not how I imagined my family life would be. I decided I needed to make several changes to my daily life, my routines, my habits and my processes, to get my life organised so I could be the mum I wanted to be. Over time, I changed my life in such a way that the key areas of family life were planned or accommodated for. I was no longer in firefighter mode or simply tackling things just as the need arose anymore. I was able to cook for my family without feeling stressed or resentful. I was carving out blocks of quality time to spend with my kids. I even found time to read again!

I have documented many of my processes and changes in my blog called Planning with Kids, a blog that has been read millions of times since 2008, helping mums solve many problems and challenges they face, every day.

The popularity of my blog made me realise there was a need to put together a comprehensive program for mums, online, so I could share everything I have found out on how to make family life better, more efficient and less chaotic.

After carefully compiling videos, workbooks and other content, I launched Planned + Present as an online course in 2016. It has been a wonderful success, with over 650 mums to date successfully completing the course, many writing to me, to share how the course has helped them transformed their lives and that of their family.

I now invite you to join Planned + Present course!

How Planned + Present Can Help You Become a Happier Mum?

Planned + Present is a 7 week, 7 lesson online training course designed to help you find more time for your family and yourself, save money and experience less stress and anxiety as you carry out your mum duties.

As a mum, I know time is precious. Though the course is a 7 week course, you have lifetime access to the training material, giving you the flexibility to learn it at your own pace, also allowing you to revisit lessons whenever you want a refresher lesson.

7 Lessons, 7 Weeks to Help Mums Find More Time with Family, Save Money and Eliminate Chaos

Week 1: Time Management Training

Time is a precious commodity, especially so for mums. Many  mums will tell you that 24 hours in a day are just not enough. While it might seem that freeing up time is just unthinkable, it is very much possible.

Planned + Present’s first training module will help you realise where your time is being spent and where it ought to be spent instead. You will learn systematic ways to categorise and analyse your time management. This is a critical first step that will set you up for success with the rest of the training course.

Week 2: Establishing Habits

Habits are a powerful phenomenon. When you are habituated to something, your subconscious mind drives your body to perform those habits, come what may. Unfortunately, this holds true for both good and bad habits.

In this training module, you will be given practical lessons that will allow you to adopt new good habits and you will learn the habit framework so you can make the habits stick. You will also learn techniques that will teach you to ‘stack’ your habits.

Weeks 3 & 4: Establishing Routines

Routines are the backbone to implementing planning and organisation. Planned + Present will train you with dedicated lessons on routines for your home, involving your kids, to create both bonding and to get them to help around the house. Here is a sneak peek at the routines you will learn about;

  • Menu planning
  • Food prep routines
  • Morning routines involving you and the kids
  • Evening routines involving you and the kids
  • Household routines for the kids
  • Homework routines with kids
  • Technology management routines with kids
Weeks 5 & 6: Finding More Time to be Present

By week 5, you will find that you are able to make time during a day, time you just didn’t have before. It is now critical that you use this new found time judiciously. Lessons 5 & 6 let you do just that.

You will first learn how to practice gratitude, a value that will significantly improve the quality of your life. You will learn how to schedule your week, accommodating all your daily chores and also introducing quality family time, sprinkling your week with 20 minute time blocks with your kids.

The use of a simple yet powerful tool in a calendar will be taught to you. You will learn how to set boundaries for yourself and stay focused on your itemised tasks at hand.

Week 7: Track, Tweak & Repeat

While Planned + Present will show you the way to get significantly more organised with life, you will still need to track your progress to know if you are practicing what you were taught. Planned and Present will give you tangible ways to measure or quantify your results, assess your monthly performance and also suggest troubleshooting and tips to bring your performance back on par.

And because you have lifetime access to the course, you can go back any time and revisit lessons that need attention or a refresh.

Bonus 1: Monthly Menu Plans

Planned + Present teaches you how to create and implement menu planning. Shopping, prepping and preparing food is one of the biggest time consumers for mums and this training will give you the skills to smartly organise a time saving and money saving monthly meal plan.

But to help you get into the habit I have included as a special bonus, 3 fully prepared monthly meal plans, complete with shopping lists and easy and delicious recipes. Besides a ton of time, this monthly menu plan will also save you a significant sum of money.

Bonus 2: School Lunch Planner

Send your kids to school with healthy, nutritious and affordably prepared lunches with Planned + Present’s school lunch planner. A detailed e-book will give you many creative lunch box ideas, including gluten and nut-free recipes.

Bonus 3: My Favorite Resources List

I created Planned + Present after hours and hours of research and reading. If you have time to go beyond Planned + Present training, you can access my carefully compiled resource list to help you be the most efficient mum you can ever be. On my resource list is ready access to brilliant audiobooks, podcasts and online reading material on topics meant to make a mum’s life easier.
