"Design Your Year is a terrific way to set your sights on the coming year with gentlewomanly aplomb; I also appreciate what a focused (read: efficiently short) process it is. A+."

"Your workbook is both fun and thought-provoking - I have recommended both to at least ten people in the past month and am very likely to do so again next year."

"This the third year in a row I've taken the Design Your (Year) minicourse – twice in person at the annual Bullish Conference, and now online – and each year it's had a profoundly beneficial effect on my ability to set goals, plan my time, and be productive. This year, while designing my 2017, I discovered that I had lost interest in some aspects of my professional life, which I honestly don't think I would have recognized had I not undertaken this rigorous process. This made it possible for me to free up many hours per week for more satisfying work. DY(Y) is the epitome of money and time well spent, and I could not recommend it more."
