Hello, it’s Mim, and welcome to the very first episode of The Planner Podcast. I’m so excited to share this one with you because planning is both a hobby and a necessity in my life. I’m thinking the fact that you’re listening means it probably is for you or you want to know more about how to use a planner. And when I say planner, I’m generally talking about paper planners, like old fashioned diaries, journals, bullet journals, planners. However, I know that lots of people are into digital planning these days and the essentials are pretty much the same.
So about me, I Mim Jenkinson. I’m a mother of two little kids and we live in Newcastle, New South Wales in Australia. But you’ve probably guessed I’m from the UK. I’ve been over here for about 12 years now though.
I’m a little bit of a planner addict! I’ve been into journaling and using diaries and lists to stay organised forever. I was always the kid who really enjoyed back to school time for the stationery more than anything. That’s kind of continued into my adult life. I use my planner to stay organised and as therapy and I’ll probably talk about that more as the shows go on as well. The benefits I’ve found to planning are not just about being more organised.
I got into using a planner again a few years ago and picked up an Erin Condren LifePlanner and haven’t really looked back. I’ve tried other planners and at this point that’s the one I definitely use every day the most.
I use my planner for every reason: to plan my work, personal life, family life, home, everything! I’ll talk about this in much more detail in another show.
Also, about three years ago I started my own planner sticker store. I sell planning stickers to decorate my Erin Condren LifePlanner and they fit some other planners as well though. I’ve been selling those online for about three years in my Shop here and in my Etsy store, Paper Planner Club, here. I used to sell the printed versions of the stickers and at the moment it’s all printables, which means you can print them out, cut them at home and save stack of money!
So, what can you expect on this podcast? Well, I’ll be sharing planning tips and advice that I’ve picked up over the years to help me get the most out of using a planner and also staying more organised. I’ll be sharing the different ways I use my planner in the different aspects of my life and how I think you can choose the perfect one for you.
I’ll be interviewing some special guests on how they plan their days and weeks and years and their tips and tricks on how to be really more organised, more efficient and enjoy planning and a whole host and wealth of other subjects and topics relating to all things planning. I’m so excited to share a lot of those with you!
For now, I’ve got a special gift for everyone who’s listening and whether or not you’re already using a planner, I have a free weekly planner for you.
You can download it and start using it immediately. It’s really pretty and is part of my range of printable planners.
Pop me a message or an email or a comment and let me know the kind of topics that you’d be interested in and any areas that you struggle with in terms of using a planner or staying organised.
Thank you very much for listening and I’m really looking forward to this show. I’ll see you in the next episode!
