My favourite man in brown dropped off an envelope for me today. Inside was my new kitchen consultant planner.
I'm not too sure that I'm loving it. I think I prefered the old one - when you had the whole month with little squares over two pages.
The new one is weekly - so across the top of the two pages you have Sunday to Saturday. Then from the top to bottom on each day you have a third of the column for morning, a third for afternoon and a third for evening.
Maybe I'll change my mind after using it for a while??

Love it!

LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT!!

Oh, did I mention that I just LOVE IT!!! :D

I so like that there's more room per day so I can have other things besides just shows per square. I use mine for everything PC and some non PC and I hated when I would write a host's name in a square with the time and phone number and then also need that square to write call such and such. Oh, and now I need to write in appointment at 2, kwim?

But honestly, the first thing I noticed was that now potential hosts don't see my whole month in one glance and only see week by week as I flip the pages. If it's January and they want February...flip to the FIRST week and book from there before turning the page. Book in close. I don't know if this all will actually work out or not and you have been with PC longer but so far those are the reasons I'M lovin' it! (Hear the McDonald's song LOL)

Love it too

I'm able to fit in everything that I have to do in a day - I don't have to keep 2 books anymore!!! I also love it for my new recruits - potential hosts don't see an empty calendar , you are able to really focus on one week at a time, get that filled & them nove to the next without showing "all of your cards"? KWIM?
I still wish that they would put December in the calendar so I can start using it right away.

I believe you'd get the regular planner in your kit. That one is still a really nice spiral bound one. You can also purchase the Franklin Covey one if you want. I think it's $29.99 in the US. It's really nice and includes a specialized planner in there. I need to dig mine out and start getting it ready for the new year since I"ve had it since October, but put it away.

I'm very excited to switch over to it because I LOVE the "to do" lists everyday. I'm in desperate need of that to try to be better organized!! :)

I love it!! I think it will help fill calendars alot faster. One thing that my past hosts did while booking a show at parties was look at the whole calendar and then want to pick a date at the bottom of the month. if they cant see it they will be more willing to work with you on the dates!! I also like the bigger squares. I use my calendar for everything. it also shows the potential hosts that you do have other things going on in your life other than PC!! I just think the whole thing is awesome!

Love It

When it got drop off I wonder what it was, :eek: I wasn't expecting anything. I got so exited!! I just love it!!! It will alow us to look more busy that we really are, by being able to wright every appointement, kid activities and such and such. but my only desapointment is that they did not include a full page caladar month, I will had made my life a lot easier, by giving the chance to see my show booking, without to have to show it to the host. But I LOVE the color!! It look fresh and interesting, people that don't knoe about PC will be curious to see was that book is..

I am on the love it side. Although I can understand wanting the month at a glance style too. I love that I can book a little closer because they can't see the whole month. I love that I can book people from the same show into the same month because as long as its on different weeks they can't see each other. I also love that I can set my goals in smaller chunks. Instead of looking and saying I have 6 shows in January, I can look and say I have one show this week, 3 shows this week, and NONE this week- so I can fix blank weeks to keep the momentum going. I was thrilled the minute I opened it!

New Planner

Only thing I do NOT enjoy about the planner is that my UPS guy left the PAPER ENVELOPE with the PAPER PLANNER in the SNOW(it was a wet day) so mine was kinda ruined. Also, the Support Services was NOT very friendly that day for some reason.(like I told him to put it in the snow) haha
