The Arrivista Planner, Grace A. Gyemfi

I’m Grace affectionately known as GG! My parents often refer to me as a busy body. They would always say to me “Grace, you just can’t sit still!” Sitting still was never my strong suit. I’ve been an avid planner user since I was ten. A planner has been part of my back to school shopping list since the 5th grade. Daily planners have been imperative in keeping me organized. Three years ago, I was looking for a planner and realized that although stripes, polka dots and flowers are beautiful-there were no planners that reflected the diversity of my Ghanaian heritage and I knew I had to create a planner.  However, I didn't want to create just any planner. I wanted it to be a tool for growth, self care, self awareness and not just goal setting but goal completion and on June 1st, 2019 I did just that and launched my first line of 2020 planners. As women, we often pour into the lives of others and neglect our own wellness. For women who find the typical path to personal and professional success demanding, unrealistic, The Arrivista Planner is a breath of fresh air. It provides community and the concrete and measurable steps needed to achieve goals, live well, and love well. Different from the other bright, cheery, women-centered planners, The Arrivista Planner has a bold, daring style that speaks to the inimitability and incomparable style of a woman on a mission.
