You might wonder why I decided to try selling digital planners. That’s a good question! Before I began I didn’t even know there was such a thing.

When I was researching to decide what my next project would be, I considered several things. One thing I considered  was blogging. I wanted to see if I could make money supplying information, and in that information I would include ads and affiliate links.

I started following a YouTube channel called Income School. I think their methods are super smart and I was dying to join their membership. Alas, I didn’t have the money and for the life of me couldn’t figure out why they don’t have a monthly subscription, I would be a member right now if they did. However, they share a lot of info on YouTube and I watched all of their videos.

From that I started a blog at about being a grandparent. What a mistake that was. I couldn’t figure out what to write about and when I did come up with ideas, I absolutely hated writing about it. Maybe it was using the Income School methods, which is finding a question being asked on Google, then write a post to answer it. Whatever the reason, I did not want to do it.

So I moved on.

I really wanted to do something that tapped into my creativity. And I wanted the product sold to be digital so I didn’t have to deal with inventory and shipping, heck, we already do that with our reselling business (I’ll tell you more about that business in later posts). So I considered selling printable products on Etsy.

Again on YouTube, (if you can’t tell, I love YouTube), I found a lot of people teaching about selling printables on Etsy, but in the mix, I ran across people teaching about digital planners. I was intrigued. So I started watching.

I quickly realized I had the skills to create these things. I’ve been using software needed for over 20 years and I know a lot of people who sell commercial use planners for print. I never knew the same processes to create printable planner could be used to create digital planners. And so it began.

I watched a lot of videos and then I just started making. And boy did I start with a big project. I figured it was time to create planners for 2023 so I made a fully linked 2023 planner with a page for each day and each week. I also added a projects section and a goals section. Lastly, I had to include journal pages too.

It took quite some time to get it all linked properly. The thing that slowed me down to the point of having to start over was incorporating a Slide Master in PowerPoint. I didn’t know they existed but somewhere in the process I thought, this is crazy, there needs to be some way to put the tabs on one time and then have the pages lay on top. So I did some research and low and behold, there’s a way. I started over and am so glad I did.

Speaking of Slide Masters in PowerPoint, I only used one but I KNOW in my soul there’s a way to use multiples to make my job easier. I’m going to figure it out, I just need a little time.Thing
