I've compiled a list of frequently asked question to help answer your most pressing inquiries in a speedy fashion. I hope you find what you're looking for!
Well, the Life is Messy Planners came first. The original idea sparked in 2010 when I was in desperate need of a calendar system that didn't make me yawn or worse, feel slaved. The are specially designed for over-achievers + self-motivated folks, who like to see things down + done with little to no guidance. For those who need a bit more structure + support + guidance + accountability, I recommend going PRO with Life is Messy Bootcamp. Life is Messy Bootcamp is the King Kong on steroids version of the program, crafted to take away all the guess work from the equation. It includes the full monty of kick in the pajama pants modules + beautifully designed printables + money making spreadsheets + roll up your sleeves assignments + guidance from yours truly + live implementation calls + an entire community for moral support + some amazeballs bonuses.
I can literally see this superstar in my dreams: Girl with more ideas than she could ever fit inside one journal with a burning desire to make a real difference in the world but sometimes lacks the confidence + willpower + structure to follow through. The creativity is there no questions, but it seems that every time she attemps to to something grand stuff gets in the way. Is that you Pinky desguised as a perfectionist in recovery?
The course is staged online, so you can access the information any time you like + learn at your own pace. While I've re-structured Life is Messy Bootcamp to be a cohesive group adventure with scheduled tours + seasonal challenges, you're totally welcome to camp solo + take a nap whenever you damn want to. The course provides a clear structure for those who need more support + accountability without the crappy sensation you are falling behind.
You will need a computer + Internet access + ability to watch online videos + view PDFs + an ideally a color printer to print out the illustrated funsheets for maximum creative inspiration. We'll also be doing various creative activities, so be ready to bring along your favorite creative instruments for the ride.
I will be actively answering questions + providing feedback + sharing personal anecdotes that will make you giggle, sometimes even cry, that I could never ever in a million years share in public. You will also be able to hangout + collaborate + have virtual tequila shots with everyone who is going through the course with you + alumni. That's what I call freaking-tastic team work!

I like to keep the shopping cart open for as long as I can without affecting the flow of the program or over-crowding the HQ. I will give a 3-day notice to subscribers only before closing the doors.
Unfortunately, I cannot fix my rates. Prices can change at any time without previous notice as the program evolves + cool new features get added.
For your convenience, transactions are handled via PayPal, the most secure + easy way to pay online. I heart PayPal. Now, if you don't have a PayPal account, you can still pay with your credit or debit card through PayPal. Contact me if you have any questions about that. I know it can be confusing sometimes, but I'm happy to help.
The biggest + most amazing new addition is the lifetime access. Know what that means? No saving things to your computer + forgetting where the heck you put em' in the first place. No yearly fees to renew your membership. No catch or having to name your first born Mayi to get perpetual access to all new versions + revamps + my favorite part, the LIVE monthly smackdowns with Emperor Mayi (that's me) + friends (that's you). You in? What else? I've: (a) Re-freshed the lessons with fun new videos you'll actually wanna watch. Goodbye PowerPoint boring-tations. (b) Added written manuscripts to scan in a flash + conquer. (c) Completely re-designed all the printables + made em' interactive so you can give your calligraphy a break, sometimes. (d) Illustrated the cutest graphics for every single class. You're bound to smile. (e) Introduced group challenges + scheduled mini courses we can do together for maximum performance + results. (f) Synched lessons with roll up your sleeves exercises + exercises with funsheets. No guess work, only major ass kicking!
For best results, I recommend printing your planners on 8.5 x 11 inch paper or card stock + to set your printer to fit the entire image to avoid cropping. For your visual delights, I suggest using a color printer + artistic writing utensils to jot it all down. Now, to keep your sheets tidy, you can create your very own organizational binder + divide your sections with colorful labels. You can also pin your sheets to your bulletin board + fridge or cork mural, whatever suits your lifestyle. Just have fun with it.
Oh yes there is. The group is for current Life is Messy Bootcamp participants only. I'm really committed to creating an environment where everyone taking the course feels safe + nourishing a community that embraces + supports each other. Requests are processed by hand to confirm enrollment, so please allow a 48 hours approval window. If you suspect somehow that your solicitation was eaten by electronic gremlins, please send me a message. I would never intentionally want to keep you out of the party.
Yeap. It's #lifeismessy. Use it anytime.
It's on the top of my "Wouldn't it be so cool..." list. I pinky promise.
I like to be as flexible + accomodating as I can, but for the time being the only bonus that is available solo is 5K Sales in 365 Days
If your first hesitation is about price, then this course is definitively not for you. I honestly believe this program is a steal + that you'll get 10 times the value of what you paid. This program is filled with specific + actionable steps + no-guess work material that has the potential to transform your life + your business. How much is that worth to you? Now think about how much you spend on worthless things that do you no good? I'm telling ya', this course literally pays for itself. If investing in yourself + your business is not top priority, please don't join.
Yes. Life is Messy Planner crusaders will receive a special coupon code upon purchase to upgrade at any time. I like to take care of my Life is Messy family like that.
Ok, here's the thing, if you except a program to magically solve all your problems, then this course is not for you. Programs like these can't do anything for you if you don't use the course material + make it work for you. Now, Life is Messy Bootcamp was carefully crafted to help you beat your mind gremlins + other devilish resistance + take you to action gear, and I'm not just talking about willpower. So, if you follow my lead, I guarantee you'll win + by default I will too. Because you see, your success is directly linked to mine. Now on the flip side of that, if you don't follow though, you not only hurt yourself, but you hurt me too - I lose a client I treasure + I lose a testimonial + I lose your trust + I lose everything + other's do to for boycutting us of your contribution. So, it's in my best interest to do everything in my power to see you on top of your Mount Everest.
This program can help any individual get organized + set goals + stay motivated. I've personally been using the organizational tools I teach here since as long as I can remember, even before I began my online business. My husband, just to give you an example, uses the Resolution Tracker to record his surfing sessions + keep track of his progress. So, I'm confident this course can empower people all across the board who need a little more structure + accountability + organization in their lives. I will say this however, that the course material was created with entrepreneurs in mind + assumes that you have a business. I give step-by-step guideposts to create products that sell + build a raving fan base + set up your signature correspondence + blog with purpose. So if you don't have a business but feel incredibly excited of the potential to have one + are willing to work extra hard to get your biz up + running, then come on board!
The course is in English, but as you know very well English is not even my first language, so I keep things pretty simple, just as I do on my blog
. If you're able to follow my videos + articles, then you'll definitively be able to follow this program. I hope to be able to offer this course in Spanish + Portuguese in the near future.

Aw thank you. I design the layout of the site + personally hand-illustrate all the whimsical illustrations you see here, but the real genius that pieced it all together is Ricardo Karamañites. He's the coder + technical mastermind behind this project. This entire platform is filled with technical complexities, not to mention an excessive amount of custom requirements to make your experience in this site one to remember. I could have never handled it on my own. I still pinch myself when I see the final product.
I know, I love my photos more than granny's Egg Nog + you can freaking bet that's a whole lot. Marcela Macias from The Celebration Girl
is my Photo Fairy Godmother. To say I don't picture every letting anyone else take my pictures would be an understatement. Cannot recommend her enough.
I feel so ridiculously lucky to call Alberto Serra of WP Films
my director. He's worked on big name movies like James Bond Quantum of Solace (208) + Contraband (2012), so you can imagine how honored + blessed I feel to have collaborated with him on this project.
Arturo de la Guardia from Flan De La Casa
. I know, he's a genius.
