A warm welcome to this new blog! I would like to start by introducing myself. I’m Maria, a digital entrepreneur and planner nerd who loves helping other business owners taking advantage of technology so that they can work smarter without hustle and burnout.
Meet the planner nerd
I don’t know about you… but I have tried my fair share of planners and systems over the years in a constant search for the perfect one… I have loved planning for as long as I can remember and when I was on parental leave six years ago that interest grew into an Instagram account (it used to be @lovethatplanner but I have since then renamed it). I joined Facebook groups, bought inserts on Etsy, made my own inserts (of course!) and I kept a bullet journal – it was such a fun and creative hobby.
Then I started my own business and things got hectic… With small kids and lots of customer deadlines I instead dived into the big sea of productivity apps. It was quite messy to find a system where I could combine the apps with my need to write things down by hand.
When I bought an Ipad with an Apple Pencil everything fell into place. I now combine my apps with my own digital planner – and finally I have found #plannerpeace. And that’s also why I started this blog – I want to talk about this new world of digital planners in combination with productivity apps that now makes my life so much easier. And so much more fun!
This is me
- I live just outside of Stockholm, Sweden, with my husband, two kids and two cats. When I’m not busy building my business I love taking walks in the forest, doing yoga and binge watching Netflix series with my hubby.
- I’m an accountant and I’ve been running a traditional accounting firm for three years. But in the light of the pandemic I honed in on what’s really important in my life and decided to close down the firm to focus on my online business.
- I love everything tech and especially around productivity. I have actually been preaching digital entrepreneurship and remote team work for deaf ears for years… Until everyone had to start working remote in 2020 whether they liked it or not.
So this is me, who are you? Let me know in the comments!!
