The Hitch Hikers Guide to the Plannerverse - Episode 27

Organising the family

The planets have aligned and your planner is chugging along perfectly.

Then suddenly: FAMILY! How do you get your family on board with planning or at least participate in your interplanetary goal of dining at the restaurant at the end of the Universe?

In this week’s episode, Steve and Karine discuss strategies and tactics for staggeringly minuscule successes in planning with others.

Tune in and thanks for all the fish.
