About the President
My name is Susie Glennan, born in Hollywood, CA, grew up in San Fernando Valley, married since 1982, and the mother of three wonderful young adults. Being a type A personality for many years, (You can read about personality based time management in her other article), I found myself helping my friends and others in my neighborhood get organized. Out of this need to be organized in everything I did, The Busy Woman’s Daily Planner® got a new owner.
In 1997 I found myself using a new computer organizing software. It was during this time that a friend of mine told me about organizing planners. A few days later I saw someone’s purse/planner at a home school conference and I HAD to have one! As it turned out the woman who was selling these products was closing her business. I, then, took over her client base and became a distributor for The Busy Woman’s Daily Planner.
As I began my new business, I studied and learned as much as I could about women’s personalities as they pertained to organizing. After sometime, it seemed that the company was taking no precise direction. It felt like my customers needed a more personal touch. So I began showing women how our products could help them both professionally and personally….in leisure and business. I also began to share tips to help women schedule their time better and keep their things where they could find them. It was April 1, 1999 that I purchased the company. The timing was obviously right.
The Busy Woman, Inc. (now the company name), is a combination of day planner & calendar pages, organizer pages, purses, backpacks, briefcases, book tote/purses, car & home organizers, and other organizing products designed mostly by and for women. In this way, customers can pick and choose what suits THEIR needs. In my business I also provide women training in time management skills through phone and email consultations, share tips and links on organizing, and newsletters with my customers.
Much of time management is dependent upon the phase of life you’re in as well as your surroundings. Whether or not you have children, are they grown or young? Do you have adequate work and organizing space, etc.? This is a VERY important aspect of getting organized–having a place for everything and having everything in its place.
I would like to share tips on organizing, links, newsletters and whatever else I have a moment to glance at, with others who could use a bit of encouragement from an extremely busy mom AND businesswoman who can relate with them.
