If you’ve heard me speak, attended a workshop, or participated in any of my classes or online programs, you know what a huge fan I am of the five-year journal. I’ve been keeping one now for more than twelve years, and I’m currently filling my third book. Because it takes only five minutes a day is the only reason I’ve been able to remain consistent for so long. I think it’s the best way to document your life in a fast, focused, and fun manner.
Apparently, a lot of other people feel the same way. I’ve been selling so many journals on Amazon that the Big A invited me to be a Prime Seller. Amazon knows I exist! How cool is that? Now, I know it’s all about logarithms, statistics, and making Amazon more money, but after a trial period of a couple of months with the Big A watching my on-time shipments and deliveries, customer service, low cancellation rates, and a long list of other benchmarks, I was given their seal of approval and awarded the coveted Prime badge. It’s a beautiful thing.
Now, I have a shipping and handling manager who is doing an awesome job of packing up the more than 150 journals heading out to all points across the United States each month. All the post offices in the area know him by name and expect to see him at least once or twice a day. He’s also quite handsome, and he’s my husband, Bob. He is the best because he packs each journal with love and gratitude. Bob even includes a pen to go along with the buyer’s new journal as a little thank you gift.
This jump in sales is such a blessing in our lives, and it’s paying for our two-week trip to Northern Italy at the end of September. If you’ve purchased a journal and been part of making this dream vacation happen, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
If you don’t already have one, do you want to jump on the five-year journal train? The journals come in six great colors. You can buy yours on Amazon and see my Prime badge, but I recommend you go to my website where I don’t have to pay Amazon’s hefty commissions. There you can purchase a journal for ten dollars less than from the big bookseller in the sky. If you place your order before noon EDT, Bob will ship it out the same day.
Know that five-year journals also make great gifts to celebrate the holidays, birthdays, new jobs, births, marriages, graduations, anniversaries, bar and bat mitzvahs, communions and confirmations, five-year business plans, goals and actions taken, and just about any other reason you can think of.
