Wild University – Sophomore Year

Wild University – Sophomore Year

Wild U turns two!  Wild University is the virtual online course platform and community created by Wild For Planners. Launched just last year (during a global pandemic), Wild U has provided a way for our community to connect and experience fun, new monthly content about planning, cooking, organizing, budgeting and so much more.  Each month there is a new major and minor subject to “study” plus a library of ongoing content found in the Dip Llama Library. The private Facebook group (Llama Lounge) is where members get to watch lives, interact with their favorite “professors” (content creators), keep each other accountable and make new planner friends.

Year two is definitely going to be wild! We talked to Jazmine Franklin from TEAM Wild all about the exciting upcoming Sophomore Year at Wild U and some details about the Go Wild Conference happening in Anaheim this March. Listen to our chat below:

Behind The Shop – The Fabulous Planner

Behind The Shop – The Fabulous Planner

After pursuing her dream of moving to L.A. from Brazil and studying fashion, Flavia Gabriel stumbled onto the planner community when searching for inserts for her new LV agenda. When she wasn’t able to find inserts with an aesthetic and function that worked for her, she decided to combine her love of paper and fashion to design her own. Flavia knew her passion for chic, fashion-inspired products would resonate with other women and planner enthusiasts so she created The Fabulous Planner for other paper loving fashionistas. What started has a side hustle selling inserts and dashboards on Etsy, has grown into a full time business with planners, stickers, journals, a subscription box and more.

 

Now, after more than five years in business, Flavia helps other entrepreneurs by offering one-on-one business coaching. She has also started expanding her product line, including a new book bound planner launching for 2022 and other stationery items. Her next steps for the brand include attending trade shows in the new year to gain more of a retail presence, which is something she has already started with a small pop-up shop in San Diego.

The Fabulous Planner

We chatted with Flavia about all things The Fabulous Planner, growing a planner business and helping others go after their dreams. Take a listen to our chat below:

SUBSCRIPTION BOX 

In 2019, The Fabulous Planner began offering a monthly subscription box which includes an exclusive collection of planner related products and stationery accessories. Each month, Flavia curates a different theme and mix of products to surprise and delight subscribers. The box is available in two options, Classic and Luxury, or one with dashboards and inserts and the other with only accessories. Since it started, the sub box has become one of the most popular items in the shop.  The latest “Ballerina” theme, designed in beautiful hues of pink and purple, completely sold out. But stay tuned for fall boxes and Flavia even has plans for a special SoCal/Go Wild theme coming soon!

For 2022, Flavia has designed the first book bound dated planner, which will be manufactured overseas. It has a chic and neutral aesthetic with monthly and weekly spreads as well as other additional planning pages. It will be available for pre-sale on the website soon.  Journals are something Flavia is passionate about because it is such a critical practice in achieving your dreams. She has plans to offer more in the new year as well.

BUSINESS COACHING

Helping other female entrepreneurs is also something Flavia is also passionate about. After receiving tons of questions on social media about her business and advice for getting started, she decided to offer one-on-one business coaching calls. It is typically a one time call, for about an hour, where she takes a deep dive into your brand and business to help you take action and make a plan. Before each call, she requests a lot of background information and begins doing research to offer an in-depth approach and guidance for each client. She knows first hand how hard and isolating it can be to start and grow a business and wants to help others along the way.

Spaces Planner 2022 Collection – Interview with Rachael Werner

Spaces Planner 2022 Collection – Interview with Rachael Werner

When Rachael Werner, a busy mom of three, couldn’t find a planner to suit her style of planning she decided to create it. Inspired by her grandmother’s love of list making, Rachael envisioned a planner layout that was very different from the traditional planners on the market. She wanted a planner where your to-do list could be “sprinkled into the cracks of life” and not be your entire life. A place to be intentional with your time and focus on what matters. So the “spaces way” of planning was born.

 

After sharing her unique style of planning with friends, Rachael created the first spiral bound Spaces Planner for the 2019 calendar year. Since then, it has grown in popularity among those looking for something a bit less structured. The weekly layout is designed with a combination of boxes or spaces that can be used for various lists and areas of life you need to focus on.  These spaces allow for a more flexible way of planning which can be switched up each week, if needed, to work for you. A few of the spaces are labeled with intentional categories, like relationship, housework, errands, health and personal while others are completely open for interpretation by the user.

 

We spoke to Rachael to learn more about the Spaces approach to planning, her journey as a business owner and all the exciting new products launching for 2022. Take a listen to our chat below:

2022 PLANNERS

For 2022, there are three beautiful new cover designs for the Spaces Planner including Modern Abstract, Elegant Floral and Classic BlackEach theme is carried out throughout the pages of the planner on the monthly headers and interior divider pages. The planners are dated for 12 month calendar year (January 2022 – December 2022) with additional blank spaces layouts for “Big Plans” plus a lined notes section and back pocket folder. The planners are hard cover with wire-o coil binding in a non-traditional size (8 3/4 x 9 3/4) with 120 gsm paper.

ANSWER: Jenn @chappyplans

 

Jenn Chapman is the creative mind behind @chappyplans. She loves all things decorative planning, memory keeping and bullet journaling. Jenn jumped into planning in 2016 after having her daughter and never looked back. She immediately fell in love with creating and using stickers in her planner to keep herself organized. Currently, she uses a Happy Planner, either vertical or dashboard, as her catch-all planner along with a mini Happy Planner for on-the-go.  She also put together a “transformer” Happy Planner, with a mixture of different layouts and filler papers to track wellness, social media and faith journaling. Besides stickers, her favorite planning essentials are gel pens (Tul or Pilot G-2), Fiskars X-Acto knife, Tombow correction tape, Undu and a We Are Memory Keepers disc punch.

 

Her planner stack also includes two Archer & Olive bullet journals for creative art journaling and memory keeping plus a big Happy Planner for photo journaling. Lately, she has been enjoying practicing her brush lettering and using some stamps, distress inks and sprays in her journals. Creating is what brings her joy and you can find her sharing her process on social media regularly.  She is an ambassador for Rongrong and on the PR team for According to Ali.  We can’t wait to see what she creates next!
