Why I’m a Member of Direct Creatives
I learned about Direct Creatives a few years back. I loved the concept and thought off and on about what I might be able to contribute. Since I have that confidence problem, it just sat in the back of my head.
One day I saw that Direct Creatives had made some changes and had changed ownership. The ladies in charge were all people I knew from interwebslandia, and they were pretty awesome. I dusted off my ideas and decided I wanted to help support their new venture.
Now trust me, it’s a win-win because I get something out of it too. I get to be part of a marketplace that has awesome SEO and amazing, talented store owners. It’s the best of both worlds for me. I can support the marketplace and utilize it until I’m ready to build my own, personal online store.
I am constantly working on new ideas to help busy gals work and live simply and efficiently. Currently you’ll find the following products in my store:
- An awesome Printable Planner
- My go-to Trello Calendar
- The Trello Goal Planner that helps keep me on track
- The simple to use (complicated to create) Social Media Stats Tracker
- A helpful Printable Goal Planning workbook
- Very cool Print-on-Demand and SVG files
- The most awesome, simple, Digital Planner ever and more
These are just a few things I’ve developed to help busy gals simplify and organize. All of these have been tried and tested and made the cut.
