Meet Emily

If you’re looking for a more efficient way to get all of your ideas and to-dos out of your head and into a streamlined plan, then today’s podcast is for you.

I’m interviewing Lauren Cash, the co-founder of “Monday Hour One.” I first learned about this planning strategy from the Life Coach School with Brooke Castillo, and I’m always interested in trying new ways to develop efficiencies in my daily and weekly planning to better juggle all the things in business, motherhood, and life.

What I love most about Monday Hour One is that it forces you to get everything out of your head and into your calendar. Once you do that, I find it’s really freeing to not have to worry about it again because you know you’ve already carved out time for it.

You calendar everything- not just your important appointments. You literally carve out time for everything that matters to you, including your free time and self-care. It can feel tedious at first, but it does really give you a lot of freedom. I’m still tweaking this process for myself a bit, but overall, I’m liking it. 

Listen for more from Lauren on how to structure your calendar and plan your life more effectively. And like always, if you enjoy this interview, please screenshot, share, and tag me on Instagram!


“Slow down to strategize, to then eventually speed up and be more effective and get the results that you want to get in your life.” -Lauren Cash
