Customer Joy

I feel very lucky to have a customer like Sallie Duncan. She wrote an effusive review of my product and shared her joy at finding it. I go back to read it from time to time just for the sheer energy she gives me as a product creator…

"This. This is the most perfect, most beautiful notebook EVER. I absolutely love this journal! … I use this journal at work, and it brings me so much joy. If you love leather, get this. If you love classy things, get this. If you love a notebook/journal/diary that opens easily and lays flat: BUY THIS!!! You need this journal in your life. Seriously, I could hug this thing. The details on the cover are well done, and the entire journal is a pleasure to have and write in… I love it! I am so glad that I bought this. That’s right. I bought it. I didn’t get it for free, didn’t get it as a gift, I was online shopping and found this beauty on my own somehow and made the decision to buy it. I am so glad that I did!
Go on. You know you want it/need it. You will not regret this purchase!"

Sallie — wherever you are — thank you so much for being a customer and sharing your joy with the world!

If he is not building something, or preparing to, or cajoling someone else into starting their own business, you'll find him craving Twizzlers and a movie with Ruth or sneaking M&M's at a grandchild's event.

College life can be overwhelming, and never more so during periods of change. Turning a writing journal into a personalized planner, using the Bullet Journal® (Bujo) method, can help you keep a handle on things. Bujos can help you juggle both your academic requirements AND those pesky adulting things that we all need to do, like budgeting and changing our sheets. Bujos can increase productivity and decrease feelings of overwhelm for all of us -- but they're especially ideal for college students.

How is your current journal working for you? We're more apt to pull out our notebooks when we enjoy working in them. Choosing a blank notebook that's well suited to the kind of journaling you do is key. Think about things like: 

  1. What do you do in your journal?
  2. What kind of paper is the perfect kind for you?
  3. Are pages that are blank, lined, dotted or gridded your best choice?
  4. What kind of binding works best for the kind of journaling you do?
  5. What kind of cover not only works well but speaks to you?
  6. What's the best size blank notebook to buy?
