GIVEAWAY! Passion Planner



So, how are your new year's resolutions going? Did you make 'em? Did you stick with 'em? I have a new-to-me favorite tool that helps me stay on-task and on-track with my goals: the Passion Planner! My friend Kate Richbourg turned me on to this gem and I can't live without it now!

Have you heard of this? It is like they made a planner for my brain! I love love love this product so much that we are giving one away! ***


























This planner has it all: weekly view, monthly view, to-do lists, goals lists, notes area, and my favorite - the focus area. For each week (or day), you can set a focus/goal. At the end of the month, the planner has a few pages of reflection questions such as, "What was the most memorable part of this past month?" or "What or whom are you especially grateful for this past month?" I have been pleasantly surprised with how these questions prompt me to truly reflect on what has happened and help me stay focused.















For my crazy schedule, I need to keep all my appointments (kids' schedules, family commitments, etc.) on my Google calendar with pop-up reminders, so I use this planner more as a daily to-do list as I go through my work day. It is so helpful to jot down my action items in a date and time format rather than the classic yellow pad of paper.

Of course, colored pens are a must! I love to doodle and I am a very visual person, so bring on the sassy glitter pens!


Who would like to win one of these planners? We are giving away a 2016 8.5" x 11" planner. Here is how to enter:
  • Comment on this blog post and let us know your organization troubles and how this planner might help.
  • For bonus entries, "Like" us on Facebook and Instagram.
  • For a bonus bonus entry, go "Like" the Passion Planner Facebook page.
We will pick a winner on Tuesday, February 23rd and will update this blog post with the winner's name. Good luck!

*** We do not make any money or kickback whatsoever for this giveaway. I genuinely love the product and bought these planners for my employees. When I asked if we should give one away because we felt our customers would love them as well, they responded with an overwhelming, "YES!" :) ***

This is perfect for small business owners! I am working on redesigning my entire product line, and a tool like this would be very helpful.

(I already like Beaducation on FB and follow on Instagram, just liked Passion Planner)

Between my teaching schedule, scheduled studio time, volunteer work, mom stuff and not being able to remember to put alerts on my phone calendar- I think I need to get one of these!!!!!

What a great giveaway for the creative entrepreneur! My goal for my business (now entering 3rd year) is to be more productive and time efficient. I can't believe how much time I waste - not on purpose, but by jumping from one task to another... From filling an order to making a new design that popped into my head to redesigning my business card to "oh wait... I need to get that show application sent in" to omg beaducation is having a sale MUST STOCK UP NOW. Perhaps with some guided organization and visible deadlines, I can push myself to truly give my best to my business. Thanks for the opportunity!

I currently use a pen and paper I keep next to my bed as a running to do list, and I can use surely use more organization! As a doctoral student preparing for internship, my schedule is about to get a lot more hectic, so I need to stay as organized as possible!

I have little pieces of paper floating around the house like snowflakes. I'm pretty together with appointments and work schedule but it's the day-to-day lists that get me, and also the long-range goals get lost in the shuffle. This looks like a great organizational tool and I love the grounded reflections (questions) that are included. Thank you for your generous giveaway.

OOooohhh organization!! If you know anything about Scorpios, know they have an overwhelming need to have everything organized. I have lists upon lists of things scattered all over my desk, phone, coffee table, etc. You see I have 2 small businesses and neurological lyme disease to boot - I forget EVERYTHING! This doesn't bode well with my personality nor my life. Organization is a crucial part of my life and this planner looks awesome! :)

Catherine Campbell said...

I have lots of notepads in my classroom, car, kitchen, studio, bedroom. Make lists all the time...being able to organize them would be a great help!

Maggie C said...

I find that my #1 trouble is inconsistency. I have several notebooks and pads that I use so my notes are all over the place. Half the time, I don't remember which one I wrote my notes on etc.

Thank you for the chance =)

I saw the passion planner on Kate Richbourg also and went to the PP site to read up on it but they were all sold out at that time. I am a paper calendar person and have used different calendars that I have purchased but need room for scratching notes and planning thoughts which is hard to find. The Passion Planner sounded like a perfect fit.
I ended up making a temporary calendar for the year to get important dates listed so we could scheduling done, it would be thrilling to get a real calendar rather than the three sheets of paper I have been working from.

i need to set goals for myself daily or weekly in several areas: school, spiritual, home, personal, relationship, physical and business and then feel okay about whatever happens with it.

Thanks for offering this opportunity.

Christine said...

This sounds like an ideal way to stay focused and organized. I leave myself little notes but then forget where they are or forget what the note means.

Catherine said...

I try to keep homeschooling info, meals, and jewelry jobs all in one planner, so I like the different options on this one. I also LOVE the idea of tracking a goal -- I need help with staying focused!

W0lfwoman said...

By the way, already liked you guys on FB. Added a like for Passion Planner. ☺️ Do you need my FB name?

Amy Z said...

I've been keeping track of things on my phone, and it's not a great system to view larger weekly or monthly goals. This planner would definitely help me with that!

Google calendar works great for my daily life but the passion planner would keep me focused on my business goals

I totally miss having my big old pen and paper planner... this is such a great idea (and my family would love the idea of me not mucking up the google family calendar). I am going to get one even if I don't win. I love the idea and the doodling that happens when pen hits paper!

C. Franz said...

I sooo need this. I working towards getting off of welfare and tracking everything that need to be completed and goals is so scattered for me. I would love this planner.

I purchased a Passion planner and I am in love with it! I, however, find that what I really need is a compact one to have with me at all times. I use mine to get and keep me on track with all my personal doctor appointments and to keep track of my symptoms. I have lupus and ankyloaing spondylitis. I also had a stroke. Keeping track of all my medical needs, appointments, medication refills, etc keeps mine pretty full.bi have a whole other life that I need a planner for. Keeping up with my family, friends, school, grandkids, work obligations. Andbof course figuring out my passion in the midst of all of this. If I were to win, I would feel like I have a tool for happier times and find my passion and not just use mine for negativity. Thank you in advance.

Karen M said...

Yes this is a must for anyone trying to get and stay organized. I have seen these cool planners but I've never used one. My daughters keep telling me about them. Tracking appointments, rentals, exercise, meeting and goals all in one place. Visible on a regular basis. Makes thing much more achievable. Would be grateful to win one!!
