This week Cara and Marly are giving tips on the Intuition vs. Planning.

Marly shares about how she’s heard and read a LOT about Intuition lately, so much so that she’s let her intuitive side run the show.

Cara and Marly take a deep dive into the issue of Intuition and how it can play a role in the creative side of blogging but how Planning can be vital as well.

How can we allow our Intuition and Planning to play side-by-side? Cara and Marly suggest using your Intuition to dream the big picture and then using your ego or essential self, to create the plan.
