A former professional organizer, I’m now a Web Designer and Care Plan Specialist. I love helping others succeed by sharing the knowledge and insight I’ve gained through marketing my own business for over 15 years! When I’m away from my desk, I enjoy reading, photography, watching movies, and cooking.

  1. Hi Janet,

    I love paper planners – so this carnival is really a carnival for me! I will be going through all of these posts to look for ideas.

    Thanks for hosting and thanks for including me.

    Happy holidays!

  2. Great roundup of authors! I use a paper planner, but I’ve never written a blog post about it! Part of the reason why I love it is that I simply don’t want to look at a screen anymore… somehow, the paper feels like a break for my eyes! I love the fact that there are tools for every preference and need these days.

  3. Hi Janet,
    Most people I work with are using their phones for planning their day. I just haven’t been able to do that yet. I am old school and still love writing it down in a good old fashioned planner. Thanks
