Nice To Meet You!

 

Hi there, I’m Alicia! Wife to a wonderful husband. Mama to two precious little ones. And, blessed beyond measure.

 

I am the owner of Alicia Cohen Designs, and I am so grateful that I get to teach overwhelmed planner-mamas how to create meaningful, in-control lives. I love planning, but I don't just settle for any old planning.  I specifically love planning with intentionality.  When I combine planning with intentionality, life just works!

 

I love learning. I am naturally organized and detail-oriented. I swoon over bins and baskets with pretty labels. I am a problem solver. I believe that life is lived in our relationships, and I derive great joy from being able to help others.

 

For as long as I can remember, I’ve been naturally organized. But, I never understood — if I’m so organized, why am I so frazzled? Why do I feel like I’m running a hamster wheel marathon (you know.....that never-ending,

 

​hanging-on-by-a-thread, exhausted race of daily life)?  Well, you know what?  I cracked the code for myself!  And, I'd love to help you crack the code for yourself, too!

 

Why "Sweet Sister"?

 

You may have seen me refer to my readers and students as "Sweet Sister."  Here's a look into my thinking as to why I picked this term of endearment. 

 

First, I totally get the frazzled planner-mama life.  It's so frustrating to be working so hard just to be left feeling like you're getting nowhere.  I see you, and I know your pain -- I've been there.  My heart goes out to you and I feel for you, and so because of this I use "sweet" as the first part of my name for my readers and students.  I use it to express sentiments of care and compassion for the frazzled planner-mamas who come my way.

 

As for the "sister" part, I selected this word because of how I view my readers and students.  When someone chooses to join me in my intentional, planner-mama journey, I feel a sense of connection and solidarity with these women.  To me, there is something that we instantly share.  The way I see it is that we join together to do this motherhood thing, and within that, there's an aspect of sisterhood.  So, this is where the "sister" part originates from.  Also, I don't have any sisters, and I've always wanted a sister!
