“Phoebe what have you been up to? What is this most unusual gift you can get for bloggers you keep wanting to write about on the blog?”

“Well Silver, it’s the book that inspired Mum to up her game blogging over the last year and worked perfectly in the run up to her BlogPaws® conference trip. It works perfectly alongside her visits to the BlogPaws website. Let me introduce you to the……. 

2017 My Shining Year Books
by Leonie Dawson

“OK and what does these wonderful books do for our blogging buddies Phoebe? It just looks like a book to me, a colourful A4 sized book……. but a book…..” 

Phoebe: “OK let me introduce the author, Leonie Dawson. She is all the things you expect from a best-selling author, entrepreneur, and award-winning life and business coach. She is clear minded and focused, but also bright, colourful and FUN. She guides each Workbook owner on to the right path to potentially transform their lives in a vibrantly colourful and nourishing environment”

Phoebe Explains My Shining Year

Silver :- “Fun? I thought this blogging lark was meant to be hard work?”

“It can be Silver, but, thanks to these brilliant Workbooks you can have your treats, and eat them too.

At first glance the workbooks look lighthearted, gorgeously colourful, maybe something you as a serious blogger, might wonder about. Black and white = serious we think.  Look again – these Workbooks are based on :-

  • razor sharp,
  • fantastically solid and
  • sensible business advice,
  • and genuine affectionate good sense,
  • all wrapped in vibrant positive colour.

Samples og My Shining Year Book pages

This is an investment in your blog or life’s coming year. 

Think about this. To reach our goals we need to balance goals and achievements with time off and enjoyment. There is so much going on around us it’s easy to be overwhelmed – the blog, reviews for sponsors, making our mini movies. BUT in these Workbooks you the blogger, or artist, or creative, focus in your hopes, dreams and your goals then with the book’s help follow through daily, weekly and monthly; tracking your progress in a low-stress but focused way..  

  • In the My Shining Year – Biz Edition there are some tough questions for anyone treating their blog as a business, but they are phrased in such a way that you feel ENcouraged not DIScouraged as you work through the questions that help you move forward. 

“But Phoebe, what if our readers aren’t running  business but want to find a direction in their lives?”

“Ah, then they need the My Shining Year – Life Edition. This volume aims to help you increase your confidence, be more creative and motivate you to more with your wonderful life.  It’s a win-win for anyone wanting to make bettr use of their valuable time, their family and relationships.

Silver: ‘How are we using our Biz book then Phoebe, I can see you made a start?”

Phoebe: “See this planner? It is brilliant fun, there are tabs for each month; you can list goals and how you want to achieve them.

  • Financial goals? Note them.
  • Plans?  Record them.
  • Educational plans? Put them in here!

The Cost of My Shining Year books

It varies from country to country BUT the books ship worldwide. Even now the popular planner is rumoured to be running low on stock – and I am not surprised.  The brilliant Planner is $24.95 US, each of the Workbooks is $21.95US. Life Bundle of books (inc. workbook + digital copy, planner & calendar) $42.95US; and the Biz Bundle (both workbooks, Planner, Calendar + digital versions of each) $64.95US. Plus shipping.

The planner works with the books OR it can be used independently…… Silver…. Come back with that planner I’m using it 

SILVER give me back My Shining Year Planner!!!!!

    Planners are the best ever. That is why Mom never bothers with them as she is now retired…sort of. Lovely idea for someone who is not as much of a mess as Mom…well…and then there is me and I never believe in planning more than one meal at a time, na’ mean??

    Oh, how I need to get my life organized. I’m currently researching planners for 2017 and I’m definitely adding this one to the list!

    I am old school! I’ve tried electronic planners but I keep coming back to a physical planner. I’m a list writer and there is something about the actual act of writing down my thoughts, goals, plans, lists etc. that makes them more concrete. This is a great idea for a planner!

      We love the planner’s portability, and the fact we can track blog posts, plan ahead and keep an eye on finances.The facts it’s all in vibrant, life enhancing colour os a super bonus for us! Mum is a thought scribbler, an idea chaser – yes it DOES make them more real – to us!

    I love the idea of a planner, but I haven’t ever been successful with one, however, I haven’t abandoned the idea completely. I just need to find the right one and get the right frame of mind at the same time! This one looks really fun!

    oh what an interesting idea! I’m usually not one for planners, but these seem like a lot of fun. Also organizing myself would probably be a good idea!

    This planner looks amazing. I so need to figure out how to stay more organized. That was my goal for 2016 I did better, but still not where I need to be. Thanks for the inspiration.

    I probably should use something like this instead of the to-do lists on Post-It notes all over the office…which the cats steal.
