Hey there!I'm so glad to see you here!
Welcome to my online home, The Planning Geek 🙂
If you want to know the face behind this website, let me introduce myself.
My name is Benedetta, I’m an Italian who moved to her dream city, London, in 2015 and never looked back (though of course I love going back to my home country for the holidays). I grew up in a small island in Italy and from the time I was 16, I used to say I would have left Italy after high school, which is exactly what I did. I moved to London at the age of 19, starting out as an au pair, I then managed to be accepted in a London university where I graduated in Marketing 3 years later. In the meantime, I worked as a nanny, did extra babysitting, taught Italian, volunteered at my church, and tried to have a social life. Basically, I’ve always been VERY busy, which is why I needed to be organised.
I've always had a passion for all things planning and organising, ever since I was a child. Then as I grew up, had more responsibilities and started working for myself, I realised how essential being organised was, for my success and especially my mental health!
The idea of starting the blog and then offering my services, came when I started looking at my online community and I saw lots of other women struggling with the same issues I had:
- Feeling like there’s never enough time during the day to do it all
- Wanting to achieve more but feeling overwhelmed about life’s demands
- Trying to build a successful business without sacrificing a personal life
- Desiring to build a business that will allow to have time freedom to build memories with loved ones and live life
So after some thought, I decided to share my passion and skills with the online world and help some incredible women out there just like you to become more organised, improve your time management, and create a business that works for you.
I don’t promote the hustle around here, but I believe in healthy productivity, which means being able to organise your schedule efficiently, saying no when you need to, and scheduling time for rest.
P.S. If you’re ready for the next step and you’d like to work with me, you can schedule a free discovery call here.
