"The Planning Academy was EXACTLY what I needed and came at the perfect time. I’m not always the best about planning, goals, and accountability, but Sara and Tracy helped me tackle key points that I WANTED to work on.

It's not busy work. It's work to help with exactly what we want to accomplish. I also enjoy how the assignments can be so personalized but since we are all piano teachers we can relate to what each person in the group is doing."
