You consider yourself to be creative, fun, interesting, and intelligent.

You know you are capable of amazing things in life.

But then you take a look at the life around you. You’re working for others. Your house is a mess. You can’t keep your life straight. Oh yeah, and you haven’t accomplished anything worthwhile since you graduated. And you hate it. This wasn’t the life you envisioned for yourself.

Don’t get me wrong, you don’t want to leave everything and everybody you love and start a brand new life from scratch.

But you want to be the boss of the life you have right now.

And since you’re here, I know you’re serious to take the next step to becoming the boss of your own life.

Maybe you…


Recognize that your poor time management is significantly hurting your ability to take control


Feel like you don’t know anything about yourself and wonder who you really are


Want to put your amazing creativity and intelligence to good use through your work, family, organization, and fun


Have no idea where to start… which means you stay stuck exactly where you are.

Regardless of where your life has placed you at,

you’re ready to be the one to decide where your life will bring you instead of the other way around.

You’re ready to take charge and love your life again.

Your desire DEEP down is to know more about yourself and your tendencies so you can learn how to succeed.

But part of being deeply creative and amazingly intelligent is that you probably don’t find the traditional tools of success to be useful. They certainly don’t meet your needs! And when you aren’t good at those traditional tools, you feel stuck and uncertain how to be successful.

You know what? I completely get where you are coming from.

At Planning Mindfully, there are a few core beliefs that you may find extremely relieving to your own journey:

I believe that finding success is an individual journey that looks different for every person.

I believe that finding success is an individual journey that looks different for every person.

I believe you deserve to be the boss of your life. You deserve to get to enjoy the life you have and get to be creative and have fun in the process.

Last but not least, I believe one of the ways this journey is easier is knowing that you aren’t alone.

Let me assure you, I’ve been there, I’ve traveled this journey, and my life has changed in inexplicable ways.

Now… it’s your turn to start this journey to success.

About me

My name is Rachel Watts. My life desire is to help smart and inventive women like yourself design a lifestyle that entirely meets YOUR needs How? Through time management, personal development, being your own boss… and (of course!) bullet journals.

So how exactly did I get here?

It wasn’t long ago that I was like you.

All my life I’ve been told that I’m smart, creative, funny, and I have a lot of potential.

All my life I’ve been told that I’m lazy, bad at time management, I don’t really understand myself, and I’m a bit all over the place. Well, at least it was that way until 2016.

It was so confusing to be told these mixed messages throughout school, college and my work life. I was always able to hold a job and I got my bachelor’s degree, but I had no idea what I wanted to do when I grew up. Even though I had an amazing husband, a gorgeous daughter, and a happy shell… my insides felt conflicted.

 What happened in 2016 that changed things?


I started a Bullet Journal


I learned pivotal personal development and time management skills in conjunction of starting a bullet journal

And it was astounding how my life starting turning around in ways that I never would have expecting when I implemented these new habits in my life.

Because they were so pivotal and useful, I decided almost immediately that I had to help other people with the same areas… because I knew by far that I wasn’t the only person struggling.

And because of everything that I learned, I was able to quickly grow a blog and coaching business that does exactly that!

Helping you take control of your life!

I can’t wait to get to know you better.

Other fun tidbits about me:

I am a wife and mom of one spunky, four year old daughter. I love God, Jesus, music, personality tests, doodling, and finding creative solutions to solving literally any problem.
