The Hitchhikers Guide to the Plannerverse - Episode 34

Listeners Question.

Cara Jonkers asked in the Plannerology Facebook Group " I would love an episode on how Steve's planning habits / process has changed over the life of the podcasts.

I know you touch on it in most episodes - but the journey to get to where he is now in one podcast I think would be helpful and insightful."

So I was not prepared for this, but I hope that I answered Cara's question well enough.
