Our Story

"Good luck is the result of good planning."

When I was growing up my family used to refer to it as "Becky luck" because I was always seemed to be on the receiving end of good fortune. I won contests, landed two college scholarships, got a makeover from HGTV, was on Shark Tank twice...the list goes on. It was not until my late 20's until I realized why I had such good fortune. It was not luck - it was honoring personal values, planning ahead and not being afraid of failure.

Happiness has been scientifically shown to come from a combination of three sources:

  1. Your Genetic Disposition
  2. The Goals You Achieve
  3. The Values You Honor
In 2014 I realized that no planner on the market helped its users figure any of these important elements out which had been proven to lead to a happier life. During the creation of Top·Down Planner I invested hundreds of hours in research & design to make a powerful value and goal planning section that is easy-to-use, fun to fill-out and when completed, visually inspiring. 


I discovered another thing during the creation of Top·Down Planner. No planner on the market carried over individuals goals onto their daily and weekly planning pages so they remained top of mind. It is so easy to get caught in a never-ending to-do list and then before you know it the years is over.

Top·Down Planner's monthly and weekly planning pages are designed with goal columns at the top of every page you can keep any goal and the needed to-do's organized with minimal effort.


Top·Down Planner makes it easy to track progress on any goal putting you in the driver's seat of your life. Top·Down Planner is organized different than other planners because our focus is on happiness and goal achievement, not just filling up a schedule. 

I am so glad you found us.
