FAQ

How do you pronounce Bacana?

It rhymes with nirvana, with the emphasis on the 2nd syllable.

What does Bacana mean?

Bacana is a Brazilian Portuguese word that means excellent, great, wonderful. It’s relaxed and comfortable, a greeting between friends: “Everything good?” “Everything’s bacana!” This embodies the vibe of The Bacana Plan. We have a friendly, laid-back attitude combined with a desire to serve your needs in the most efficient and excellent way possible.

Where is The Bacana Plan?

Our team members live in New York City, Los Angeles, and London, and the company is essentially virtual. (We do have limited tech and assistant services available on the ground in New York City and Los Angeles.) Modern technology makes connectivity with our clients (and our services!) available anywhere on the planet. Send us an email or give us a call. We may have exactly what you need for your life in Kalamazoo!

Why choose The Bacana Plan?

Maybe because your big life is getting bigger. Maybe because you need help from smart, kind people whom you can trust with nitty gritty details. Maybe because you’re an individual who is juggling five hundred and two things and it’d be a gigantic relief to give some or all of those things to someone else and know they’ll be deftly caught. Or maybe because you need a support system while you’re pioneering out in the world.

Why is having a team for my big life (for my household, for my small business) worth the cost?

Because you are worth the cost. Ease of mind, efficient communication, and more time on your hands are necessary investments, not needless expenditures. When a task is delegated and accomplished by someone on your team, it means you get to use that time and energy for your important work in the world, for relaxation and renewal, for time with friends and family, for that new great idea.

What if delegating tasks scares me?

We work not only for our clients but also with our clients. Bacana is a partner with you in this endeavor. Figuring out a unique work-flow system, taking baby (or toddler) steps toward delegating tasks, and solving problems can all be done together. We’ll give suggestions on ways to delegate tasks that may surprise and delight you. You may not be able to delegate everything at once. That’s ok. Dip a toe in. Let’s find one thing for you to have us do. We’ll start there.

What will my first steps with The Bacana Plan look like?

We start with a conversation. We ask about your needs and desires and then we listen to you. We make suggestions about how Bacana can help with your short-term and long-term goals. We have you sign a consulting agreement because confidentiality is of the utmost importance. And then we begin our work together!

Can I purchase individual services?

Of course! Take advantage of one special service and know that there is a team on deck should you need one.

Can I give Bacana services as a gift?

Sure! You can purchase a gift as a flat amount or as a specific number of service hours. Contact us if you’re interested and we’ll discuss details.

What if I’m not based in the US?

Contact us to determine if you would be best served by US-based The Bacana Plan or by Bacana UK. We’re happy to discuss options and details with you.
