gussying up my planner pad & some news

i spent part of this snowy weekend gussying up my planner pad. after hearing kimberly wilson rave about the planner pad i knew i had to try it out. this is my second year with the planner pad and i don't see myself buying any other planner. i am a changed woman ;)

it's too bad that you can't get planner pads in colors, however, you can gussy it up any way you'd like. here's what i did:

front cover
inside front cover
inside back cover
back cover

now for the news... you'll notice on the inside front cover of my planner pad is related to all things buddhism and zen. a while back i asked if anyone had any input as far as a business name. i thought & thought & thought about it and finally come up with "zen from within." i think it's pretty fitting, don't you?!

although i haven't done anything with it, i've registered the domain. since owning my own business is a 5-10 year goal of mine i figured i'd snag the domain for safe keeping. i'm excited!! :)

Melita - this is amazing! The planner is gorgeous and I can only imagine how much it inspires you to be with yourself.

I am TOTALLY excited about "Zen from Within" - what a great name! I've been doing exactly the same thing (pondering the name idea, as a business simply has to be in my future as well)...excellent idea to scoop up that domain. I can't wait to see where this all heads!

Love, love, love that name! It is perfect. I've been reading a business book that I think you might be interested in checking out. It's titled, Building Your Ideal Private Practice by Lynn Grodzki. A therapist friend of mine recommended it to me, and I am loving it. Loaded with good and useful information. While the focus is on therapists, it is really very applicable to many wellness business owners--yoga instructors, massage therapists, etc.
On another note--how do you register a domain name? I am so not techno-savy, but trying to learn!
Namaste'

Definitely love the planner pad idea and couldn't live without one. Mine isn't nearly as pretty and both you and Kimberley have inspired me to add some personlity to it. How exciting to come up with your business name and I wish you all the best of luck! I have my own business name too and in the process of getting qualified so I can officially use it. Exciting times!
