Live life how YOU want to live it! The 2017 Make Shit Happen Planner is not just a monthly and weekly planner. It is a workbook, a journal and a notebook to empower you to discover the things that are most important to you! Use this planner to take action each day in 2017 to bring your dreams into reality.
We know from personal experience that dreams and goals don't work unless you do the work. This planner was a dream in November 2015. We set a vision for what we wanted to have happen and created a product beyond our wildest dreams! We are so excited that the time has come to share it with the you on Kickstarter!
Thank you SO much for your support. It's time to get shit done, do good shit and Make Shit Happen!
- Amara and Chelsea, Co-Founders, Meraki Printing

Monthly calendar layouts to keep track of all your important dates, plus a space for notes and reminders!
The monthly themes and intentions give you something new to explore in your own life. There is no expected outcome. There is no way to get the themes right. These aren't goals; they are an aim, a greater purpose, or an attitude to commit to and explore each month.
Themes help you gain focus and clarity in a world full of distractions. It's an opportunity to learn something new and think in a different way.
Thoughts happen, and they happen fast! Journaling provides a space to get in touch with your thoughts. Writing in this way helps you find time to stop, check-in, be present and clear mental clutter so that you can focus on your goals with clarity.
Explore each month's theme with a set of journal questions. These journal prompts encourage you to discover new ideas, think in new ways and get out of your comfort zone. Answering questions that you didn't know you needed to answer will provide areas for growth that you didn't even know existed!
There is tons of space to journal, draw and keep track important ideas on the monthly notes page.
Look back at the dates and deadlines you gave your goals and action plans at the beginning of the year. Add those dates to the monthly goal sheets, break your yearly goals into smaller goals and create new goals as they come up. Revisiting your goals every month will help keep you accountable.
Weekly layouts designed to keep you organized and in action. Create time and space for the things you love doing and the things that bring you closer to achieving your goals! Our weekly layouts start on Mondays.
Each weekly layout includes our Action Circle Tracker - a tool for you to keep track of the actions you are committed to that week and easily mark off the days that you complete them. Color code each Action Circle to stay organized, hold yourself accountable and acknowledge yourself for the work you’ve done!
Each weekly quote corresponds to that month’s theme so you can keep your focus on your intention.
This planner is a space for YOU. Make it your own! We’ve designed this planner with lots of space and freedom so you can use it in a way that works for you.
Doing what you love, stepping out of your comfort zone and bringing your dreams to life is inspiring! Doing this kind of work and making shit happen is courageous and contagious! When you are making shit happen, you are actively creating a life that you want to be living, instead of just existing. YOU are the catalyst that inspires others in your community to follow their dreams and discover their passions. It’s a ripple effect. It’s The Meraki Movement.
Join the movement with us on Instagram and Facebook! Post pictures of yourself making shit happen and of your dreams becoming a reality. We set out to create a community that expands to all corners of the earth! People making shit happen in their lives is a global movement! Use the hashtag #themerakimovement
We are goal setting and personal development junkies! This planner has been years in the making without us even knowing it. We met during yoga teacher training and since then we’ve been on a non-stop personal journey of growth and discovery. The work we’ve done has changed every single part of our lives, and we are still working and growing! We realized that we are so much more than what society expects us to be! We are more powerful than we know.
We created this planner as a way to share these tools with the world and help others learn how to make powerful shifts in their own lives!
We chose our Kickstarter goal of $25,000 to meet the minimum purchase order required by our printer. We want our 2017 Make Shit Happen Planner to get into as many hands as possible because we know it has the power to change lives!
We are using Kickstarter as a launchpad for all that we want to create as a brand and a company. We want to create an entire line of products, in addition to the planner, to empower people to live life how they want to live it!
Risks and challenges
We have hired the most reputable and timely printers and distributors to mitigate all potential risks. We have created strong relationships with our suppliers and have developed a plan to get the planners to you in early December.
Printer Fulfillment - Low Risk
We have been working with an amazing North American printing company for 9 months. Our printer is one of the most reputable and award-winning printers in the world. We purchased a small batch of fully printed and bound planners in June. We couldn't be happier with the design quality and speed at which the planners were delivered. We view the printer fulfillment risk as low. Estimated ship date from the distributor to our Kickstarter backers the first week in December.
US Shipping for December Delivery - Low Risk
After a fully funded Kickstarter campaign, we anticipate planners will be shipped during the first week of December. We have set our Kickstarter end date with plenty of time for our planner order to be fulfilled with our printer and shipped to ensure mid-December delivery for all US-based customers.
International Shipping for December Delivery - Medium Risk
International and Canadian customers accept the risk that shipping times may be less predictable and slower than anticipated. International and Canadian customers also assume the liability for any customs and import charges due upon delivery.
