Joanna Lo
started her fascination with paper organization when she was introduced origami paper as a young child growing up in Taipei. Since then, she has used her work in international trade to expand her knowledge of paper customization products by using any excuse to travel and spend hours and hours in the stationery stores in Taipei, Beijing, Dallas, and DC, as well as online. She also has used the Franklin Covey system, the Getting Things Done system, and loves to combine both paper and electronic planning. PlannerPad personalization is her current passion.

Wonderful podcast topic! Do you have any photos to share? At certain points I got lost trying to visualize the "dots" and other organization tips provided by you and your guests.

Thanks for the wonderful podcast... really chuckled at the discussion on whether to cross out items when there were changes or use liquid paper to make things appear neater (the latter is me!!!). Lots of great tips and I am looking forward to setting aside some time to get organised for 2009! Thanks....

I think Planner Pads should make a special limited edition pink and sparkly HTC planner pad! I'm totally going to email them...

Kristine, we should have photos after the workshop this weekend. I hope that helps. It was such a fun podcast with my girl J.Lo.

Kristine said...

Photos would be fabulous! Thanks, Julia!

Thanks for arranging an MP3/workbook of the workshops. I live in the UK so a little too far for me to travel for the evening!!!! Really looking forward to hearing your tips and putting them into practice... Have a wonderful evening...

Thanks for suggesting the Planner Pad. I have been a Franklin-Covey girl for years with some success....and some is better than none. However, I have now switched to Planner Pad and will be forever grateful for the change it has made to the organizational aspect of my life. Thanks again.
