My "why" is to make every day count......
My story starts like many others. I just couldn’t find a planner that I could fit all of the details in. There was never enough space to write birthdays in and writing space was just so limited. I wanted a planner that I could write ALL the little details in. So then I could write it out and forget about it. After searching for many years and not being able to find what I was after, I decided to create the ultimate planner that was big and that I didn’t have to miss out on the details. The ultimate planner for those who love writing out all the things!
I have two beautiful children Hunter (10 years) and Willow (8 years) and live in Brisbane, Australia. While raising my family, I knew that my children’s schedules soon became my schedule too! One of the aims of the Plan It Out Planner was to take those appointments from my head and put onto paper and actually see how my week was mapped out. I am a firm believer in “brain dumping” appointments/important tasks and putting them to paper to free up mind space. There’s nothing quite like seeing your week mapped out with pen and paper!
Ronnie & Co is all about my passion for design and producing a quality product that I would love to have on my own desk. The Plan It Out Planner really has been a labour of love in design, in simplicity and in function.
At Ronnie & C we often talk about writing in non-negotiables into our planners, because it's those non-negotiables that mean the most to us and that move us forward in building our hopes and dreams.
But do people even use paper planners anymore?
I knew that I loved using paper planners, but I wasn’t sure if using paper diaries was still a “thing” (with people obsessed with their phones!). Boy, was I wrong! Paper planners are a really big “thing”! It shows that as much as technology is great, the simple things like putting pen to paper to plan out your week is a therapeutic way to get organised and to stay on track with appointments. As much as it’s great ticking things off your list in your phone, there's nothing better than physically ticking your list with a pen – it really is the simple things!
What’s in-store for 2021?
We gave our planner covers a little facelift with a new vegan-friendly leather cover added with some beautiful luxe foil print. We also added a feature that our planner community requested time and time again, ribbon markers. These gorgeous soft ribbon markers make finding your spot in your planner easy. You asked and we delivered!
This year also sees the introduction of a brand new product which I am beyond excited to introduce you to, the "Hello Gratitude" daily journal. I think happiness and mindset are so very important. This journal is a daily reminder to pause, reflect and take gratitude in your day and in your life. It's a beautiful book to capture memories of your day to day life.
The best feeling in the world to me is when people tell me how much our products have changed their lives for the better. It really is that simple.
We can’t wait to see what 2021 has in store for you!
