Hi, I am Betsy Carrie, thank you for checking out our Kickstarter! For 20+ years I have been creating planners. First, as a student, every planner on the market left me frustrated - none had enough room to track school, work AND life goals! Then routinely as a successful network marketing professional I purchased planner after planner excitedly hoping I had found the "one" only to create my own again and again! Finally after having children (our most important Carrie Creations) and owning and operating 2 businesses while simultaneously keeping a happy, healthy home, volunteering for the school and community and getting fit and healthy personally for the first time in my life, I have created Impact Planner.
Using all of my experience, I have created one tool to not only keep all of my priorities in front of me for balance but to make an IMPACT in all of the areas of my life. I am thrilled to share this tool so you can do the same.
HOW WILL IT FEEL TO ACCOMPLISH EVERY SINGLE GOAL YOU SET OUT FOR YOURSELF THIS YEAR?
I have searched online and in stores and NOTHING EXISTS that has every area of your life, not only in one planner, but together to create a balanced approach. With the IMPACT Planner, I have designed a unique, balanced, all-in-one product, that is simple and effective and is proven to dramatically change your results.
If you're tired of always feeling like you're farther behind than you want to be, and you're ready to start accomplishing the things you want to do that will move your career AND your life forward, then you need IMPACT Planner.
Every planner I saw that did focus on health and wellness, finances and budget, family and relationships as well as business had very different sections for each category. With our unique 2 page spread per day, each one of those categories is integrated directly into your daily planner to truly make an IMPACT in your life and in the lives of those around you! IMPACT Planner has a unique approach: master Health, Wealth and Circle tabbed sections to create goals; master to do lists; daily accountability to ensure your dreams and goals become reality; and every area of your life at your fingertips on each daily spread.
HOW BIG DO YOU DREAM? THE IMPACT PLANNER'S PROVEN SYSTEM WILL GET YOU THERE
IMPACT Planner is a proven planning and tracking system designed to help you accomplish everything you want in every area in 2016 (and beyond!) Have you ever started focusing on one area, like your health & fitness, only to see your business or relationships suffer? Does it always seem as if there’s not enough time to focus on overall improvement? You’ll realize with IMPACT Planner, taking the time to do intentional planning will create and save time in each day.
Watch the quick 2 minute video above for your overview of your IMPACT Planner!
IMPACT Planner is a quarterly planner that features a 2 page per day spread taking a balanced approach at planning, tracking, & organization by keeping every area of your life at your fingertips per day. IMPACT Planner is sleek, chic and designed to make you more successful!
Science dictates pen to paper and starting fresh each quarter to maximize success...IMPACT Planner is a quarterly planner with 15 months at-a-glance for future dates!
Research has shown that people who write down and track their goals - and who review those goals regularly - have more success than those who don't.
Why is IMPACT Planner quarterly instead of yearly? With it’s 2 pages per day spread, it would be much too large and heavy as a yearly planner to carry in your purse, backpack or briefcase. The quarterly size fits perfectly! Plus, possibly even more important, re-visiting your goals/dreams and intentions every 90 days and getting a fresh start (& fresh planner) each quarter will help ensure significant progress in each area vs jotting down those goals as New Years Resolutions once per year. With IMPACT Planner, it is like having 4 new opportunities to resolve to achieve your goals each year with daily reminders to help get you there. Plus you have 15 months at-a-glance for future planning!
The 1st day of each month contains an extra section called Measurements. Taking your measurements once per month is much more effective in managing weight loss, weight gain and muscle building than the scale. There is also an area for your overall Health goals with a master to do list & color co-ordinated tabs to easily locate. The Health goals section includes a pie in the sky goal, 5 year goal, 2.5 year goal, 1 year goal and finally this quarter’s health goal to help you start or stay on track. Daily planning and tracking supports these goals to aid you in your health successes.
The most successful people in the world are always organized and put together, join them and let IMPACT Planner be the tool to get you there!
Your Secret Weapons Log is an area that has greatly improved my health and wellness. I have included 3 extra lines for you to customize this area for your personal secret health weapons! I have also realized with preparation comes success for healthful living and when I have my water for the day as well as healthy snacks for the day prepared and ready I make better choices throughout the day. Enjoy this secret weapon, it really has worked for me!
Your nutrition log is at your fingertips daily. Tracking everything you eat and drink not only keeps you aware but accountable. You are what you eat and when we fuel our bodies with healthy food, it is amazing how much better we feel. There are 7 meal lines listed to account for snacks and/or other beverages besides water or if you are an athlete and you consume 6+ meals per day.
Your Fitness in your daily spread has 3 lines for activity and duration to account/reward for any movement from a walk around the block with your dog to 100 burpees. Your fitness may include circuit training, pilates, weight training etc etc and now you have room to account for more than one activity per day.
Your Health circle is present to guide you to remember to take care of yourself daily!
Your Sleep tracker is a quick place to jot down your hours slept for the night. It’s amazing what the right amount of sleep can do for your health.
Your Wealth circle reminds you to check in where it is necessary to stay on top of, and get ahead of, your finances.
There is a daily reminder to check your monthly budget so you’ll never miss another payment or due date.
Your Daily Spending tracker will not only help you spend less, but it will help you during tax time especially if you have an at home business.
Your Circle represents your relationships, your family, your community, your friends, your church, your clubs etc, etc.
You will start each day with positivity with your IMPACT Planner and have a spot to write down what you are grateful for that day! We get more of what we focus on. There is also a box that says “Checked weekly plan” 6 days per week and “Created weekly plan” every Sunday. The weekly plan is your area to create your ideal life, on paper, each week. More on the weekly plan below…if you have never designed your time before, you will absolutely love this feature!
Part of my “Circle” is caring for my family which includes answering the question, “What is for dinner?”! Without pre-planning, dinner is not as successful in our house, so Tonight’s dinner plan is included; a spot to jot down your plan for that evening.
Each week begins with a pre-dated weekly planning page with built in daily do's to keep you accountable to your plan!
Realize there IS time to pursue passions, dreams, hobbies by creating your week ahead of time. Write in your priorities and obligations first, pencil in a date night you never take time for, pencil in exercise, and discover there is still time left in your week for whatever childhood dreams and goals you let slip away.
The Daily do’s list with daily check boxes help create habits - just 21 days in a row of an activity solidifies it as a habit. For my entire adult life I have said I wanted to be a part of the 5 o’clock club - rising each morning at 5 am to get a head start on my day. It wasn’t until I used daily accountability with a check mark each day that I succeeded on that one daily do, I actually nailed it! Each week, you have the opportunity to decide which habits you’d like to either foster or create to lead to an ideal life…your ideal life!
Priorities and Obligations filled in first to determine time still available each day for dreams, goals, passions, etc!

"I was one of the lucky beta testers for the Impact Planner, and I cannot wait for this product to become reality!
I love how this planner encourages me to regroup on my personal goals each quarter, each month, each week - and track my progress on those goals every day. This is a great planner for a multi-tasker like me. It helps me to stay focused on small steps along the way, and instead of to-do lists on multiple scraps of paper, I can keep it all in one slim planner! Great design, and good luck with the Kickstarter!!"
Risks and challenges
As with any Kickstarter, there are risks and challenges however through extensive research and Beta testing, we feel we are ready and equipped to fulfill all Impact Planner orders. With our US manufacturer, we have open and consistent communication regarding our production, printing and manufacturing. Impact Planner is still a prototype at this point, our final product will have a nicer coil binding, a heavy laminated cover, tabs and 100GSM weight paper or higher. Although we have secured a US manufacturer who has guaranteed their work and price, we have not seen the final product as we envision it.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
