What's included?

  • Quarterly Goal Setting: List key dates, important deadlines and even make sure your goals are SMART, Specific, measurable, achievable, relevant and time bound.

  • Weekly Preview: What will you keep, improve, stop, or start doing each week?

  • Weekly Calendar: Fill in the time slots with your to-do list and your day-to-day commitments with the Time Blocking method.

  • Directory of Preferred Insurance Agents: Directory of 52 certified insurance agents (one from each state, including Canada and Washington DC) so you can confidently refer your client to a reputable agent. 

  • Wisdom: Each week as you get to the weekly preview, you will have a piece of encouragement, a quote, or a simple piece of advice waiting for you. The wisdom, knowledge and experience shared may be just what you need to close the next big sale, retain the account, or simply get you through the day.


It is time to leave behind the chaos and stress of winging your weekly calendar. This planner will help you as you plan out what you want to accomplish with every working hour of your year. And then it will help you put your goals to work as you become more focused on your priorities.
