The year was 2010. I was overwhelmed, exhausted, and felt like my life was a chaotic mess.
I knew that if I wanted to feel better, I had to start taking better care of myself, but each day I woke up and prioritized work while putting my health at the bottom of the list (if it made the list at all). Have ya been there?
Traditional planners or task management apps didn't help. They glamorized hustling, had fifty sections that I'd never use, and ended up making me feel more overwhelmed and unorganized.
I knew there had to be a better way to plan, and, frustrated, sat down at the computer to design my own. This was when I created the first version of The Daily Page.
While I thought I was creating a simple tool for myself, what I ended up with was an innovative, holistic approach to self-care and planning that would help thousands of us align our work and wellness in one place.
I was born and raised in the rolling farmland of southeastern Minnesota, and am currently navigating life abroad as an American living in Copenhagen, Denmark.
A lot has happened since I sketched out that first draft of The Daily Page. I've built a business (a couple of them, actually), managed social media for international brands, completed over 18,000 sales, and moved across the world to one of my favorite cities.
I love learning, and enjoy diving into topics like productivity, habit building, hydration, organization, and systems. If I'm not sitting in the window seat reading a book I'm probably walking my dog while listening to podcasts or audiobooks.
My passion for The Daily Page is genuine --- because it is the tool that has helped me transform my life, along with the lives of thousands of dedicated users worldwide.
Since pivoting away from my social media agency in 2019 I have focused full-time on helping more people discover the power of the page.
I'd love to connect with you! Find me on Instagram, my blog, or by listening to The Plan Podcast.
Before I launched The Daily Page I worked in the publishing world, and I saw firsthand the waste that was created by the planner and calendar industry. I knew if I launched a paper goods company I wanted it to be different. Each Daily Page Planner is:
Dateless, so that you never waste a page.
Free of dyes, plastic, or any chemical coatings.
Packaged with recycled packing material.
Sustainable! We plant a tree for each order.
Created with 100% FSC certified paper, which means the trees are harvested ethically and sustainably.
The Daily Page is a woman-owned, family run, small batch paper goods studio that was founded in 2010.
We are based in and Decorah, Iowa (fulfillment and shipping) and Copenhagen, Denmark (design, marketing).
We focus on creating products with simple, minimalist designs that help you organize your day while also prioritizing vital aspects of health and self-care.
Our mission is to help people increase their focus, motivation, and productivity with a holistic approach to planning that helps you balance work and wellness.
