Planner Love: How I Fell In Love With a Planner and We Lived Happily Ever After
I don’t know about you, but I feel so much better when I feel like my work and family life are balanced and I manage to keep all the balls in the air.
In my early days in my business I was working full time, running my business and studying a Masters Degree. I had to be structured with my time otherwise I couldn’t do any of it!
Later, when I worked in my direct sales business full-time, I had to work around small children and find a way to organize myself so that when I did have time, I could be effective.
You need to be organized and balanced in your direct sales business
I know how important it is to be organized but also to balance your efforts. I’ve experienced times I was focusing too much on sponsoring new team members and growing my team. As a result I ran out of party bookings. Oops!
I’ve also been through times where I didn’t do enough hostess coaching and I saw my sales drop. Another oops.
It’s important to not just be organized and well planned, but to make sure you pay attention to all aspects of your direct sales business!
To do this, I created systems for myself. This has massively improved things but the downside was that I always had bits of paper everywhere. I used to have multiple notebooks on the go and my office was an art work of sticky notes.
Over the past decade (!) I’ve been looking for a system to keep it all organized and keep me on track.
And I’ve finally found it!
A love story
I the CEO of Me planner so much that I’ve partnered with the creator as an affiliate.
I want every direct seller and party plan consultant to fall in love with this planner like I have.
I have literally tried dozens of different planners over the years and they were never quite right. But this planner has everything you could possibly want. It’s specifically designed for party plan and direct sales consultants and it’s way more than just a planner. Calling it a planner is almost an insult!
I use mine as a goal journal, scheduler, marketing idea tracker, social media planner, follow-up tracker, monthly contact tracker, host coaching monitor……and so much more.
My absolute favorite feature is the weekly planning page. I can pop all my tasks for each important area of my business at the top (that helps me to keep all the balls in the air) and I can schedule them into my busy week.
I love that this planner is a print-your-own system, it comes with 75 (!) different worksheets and planning pages so you can put together the planner that works for you in your business. You can print a few months at a time – you don’t even have to print off a full year if you don’t want to.
I love the design options, I’ve chosen the pineapple design but there are quite a few wonderful design options available. I also got mine bound at my local office supply store and I put some dividers in to make it super easy to find the different worksheets.
The planner is only $27 (until end-2018) and I truly believe it’s the best investment you can make in the success of your business. Grab one now to get you started immediately.
