I wish I could take you out for coffee, chit-chat, and let you know just how much we as small business owners need a paper planner. Since we are both busy and in different locations, I’ll just share how I absolutely need my small business planner, and how it has saved me throughout the years.
I know some brand new small business owners, and they depend solely on their digital calendars to keep them afloat. My honest, first-hand experience is that you also need an actual paper planner to keep your business on track and running smoothly. You need a planner that you could jot down ideas in—in a moment’s notice, and write down meeting recaps or follow up actions, and just about anything else that you need to remember and plan during your busy business day.
Despite us living in the days of remarkable digital calendars with electronic invite capabilities and meeting reminders, pen and paper in a composition notebook has served me and my business very well over the years.
