When I made the choice to become an independent freelancer, I knew that I was going to need to work on how I handled time. In the weeks leading up to my last day at my full-time job, I was in something of a panic, downloading and deleting apps for health, time management, and water consumption (more on that last one in a future blog post!). I knew that I wouldn’t be a millionaire when I decided to write full-time, but that wasn’t the goal. What I wanted was financial and emotional stability, and to achieve that, I wanted to go in prepared.
There were only a few investments I could make going in, and I decided that one of them would focus on all of these problems. As if by chance, a friend retweeted a gorgeous image from Passion Planner just one week into my search, and I was instantly obsessed. The planner’s combination of time management and goal-making were exactly what I needed with the objectives that I’ve set before me. The 2016 Limited Edition Paradise Blue had just released not long before, and after a week or so of debating, I snatched it up.
