I’ve been running around like a lost puppy with a planner for the last couple of weeks. I do use my work calendar and even my iCal but it is not the same as writing things down. For me it almost makes it stand out more in my mind. So when my planner recently ended it was a no brainier that I needed a new one – not just any old planner but one that helped manage everything from my 9-5 to my blog and everything else that comes up.
I’ve heard and read several people talk about Erin Condren planners and how great they are – I wasn’t impressed. I did some research and found Plum Paper.
These are some things that my Plum Paper planner has helped me achieve and also some great tips on time management.

During my 1st quarter review of my blog I discussed how I’ve heard a lot about how branding for your blog/business is so important. The issue that I struggled with was turning it (the blog) into a “flourishing” (profitable) side hustle and keeping it strictly fun and helping like minded women – staying true to who I am.
Long story short – I can do it all and it can be done effortless. I came to this conclusion after spending a Saturday sitting in the middle of my bed with no tv on – just music (SZA’s Ctrl Album to be specific) and candles burning, working on my Brand Beginnings 101 Werkbook, that the talented marketing genius Courtney Brand, created.
If you follow me on IG then you saw my post on how I stumbled across The B Werd, early last year after it was launched and this was a major motivator in me revamping and relaunching my blog. After I completed this werkbook, I was more than motivated to continue to take ForeverShauni to the next level, plus it also gave me the inspiration and courage to start the process on my next Side Hustle (you can never have to many streams of income).

Interviews can be very difficult for everyone. You are excited for making it to the interview stage and then again you are nervous because you want to make a good impression.
I haven’t done an interview in a
couple months year, but I’m always looking at HR topics (because I’m in HR…duh) to getting a better understanding of what people are asking during the interview stage. As of right now I’m not working directly with recruiting – but it doesn’t hurt to keep your mind fresh and ready to go for that big opportunity.
The interview process is really about the company getting to know you, but you also want to make sure that the company will be a good fit for you. You do not want to start working for a company and they don’t match to your expectation, especially since you are going to dedicate to the company for the next few years.
Prior to doing any interview weather it is part-time, internship or full-time you want to make sure you research the company. It is important to come into the interview knowing something about the company.
These are a few interview questions that you write down and ask at the end of your interview. Whatever you do at your next interview don’t let these questions/topics go unanswered.
