2020's Best Planners for Business Moms

As a mompreneur, a planner sounded like a necessary tool in my life. I suffer from the dreaded “Mom Brain”. It's funny how having a baby can demolish your short-term memory. If anything, your hormones should be giving you that extra boost of brain power! Be that considering all the play dates, doctor’s appointments, extracurricular activities, and duties related to building a business…it’s a lot! In short, a planner is a must.

The problem is that there are so many great planners to choose from. In fact, every time I go planner shopping I become severely overwhelmed. I know I’m being dramatic but each planner has its own set of pros and cons, and each individual has their own set of preferences. After a little trial and error, some research (on layouts, size, style, and design), and a little sprinkle of magic, I did it. I curated a list of all the best planners for us mompreneurs. I hope you enjoy and find what you're looking for!


1. Passion Planner | 35$

If you love planning and want more than just a calendar, the Passion Planner is the perfect planner. It's all about accomplishing goals while maintaining a healthy work-life balance.


From their site:

What’s To Love?

It’s packed with goodies that go-getter mommies would appreciate, and it’s great if you need something separate for your work and personal life. I particularly enjoy the monthly review aspect. It gives you a chance to appreciate any wins for that month, or correct any areas you want to change.
