Introducing Passion Planner pro!

Hi #PashFam!

We are excited to announce that moving forward all Passion Planners will be available in one perfect size. At 7.37 x 10.17 inches, the new Passion Planner Pro is a medium-sized notebook with room for everything you want to write, record, and create.

Why mid-size? Our #PashFam frequently tells us that choosing between the Classic and the Compact sizes can be a paralyzing experience. Passion Planner is here to help you simplify! By offering planners in just one size, we are making it easier for you to focus on what really matters: achieving your goals and living your best life.

Plus, we have big news for our dated planner users—due to popular demand, limited edition colors will now be available for both Sunday and Monday start dates! No matter when your week begins, you will be able to select the best planner for your personality and lifestyle.

If you want to stick with the Classic or Compact for a little longer, undated planners in Timeless Black, Cosmic Rose Gold, and Paw Print Brown will be available while supplies last.

We hope you love the new Passion Planner Pro as much as we do!
Pre-orders for Academic Passion Planners starts April 23.
Pre-orders for 2019 Dated Passion Planners will be available in July. Mark your planners today!

Sincerely,
Angelia and the Passion Planner Team


Thanks for tuning in to our big announcement! We’ve received an overwhelming amount of emails, comments, and DMs from our community, and we wish we had the man power to answer them all individually!

We truly apologize if our announcement came off as condescending, patronizing, or negative in any way.

Since day one, our goal has been to help people achieve their goals. It is never, and will never be, our intention to look down on or talk down on our community.

As a company that started with one woman from the ground up, we believe our #PashFam is our biggest asset. We want to continue to foster a positive community of supportive, like-minded individuals ready to tackle their goals and create a better tomorrow.

We understand people have their preferences. If Passion Planner is for you, great! If it isn’t, that’s okay too! We’re here to support you, 100% of the way.

FAQs

Q: Why did you choose to only offer one size moving forward?
A: We want to simplify. In the past four years, we’ve received numerous emails from customers who have felt paralyzed choosing between sizes. They would choose one size, find they didn’t like it, choose the other size, then find they didn’t like that one much either! Between ordering, shipping, emailing our support team, returning the planner, ordering again, and waiting on shipping again, this process would take a minimum of two weeks for customers to start planning.

Before coming to our decision, we did extensive research and consulted test groups. We found that often times, we believe that we want more choices, but in reality, we become overwhelmed by them. This is known as the paradox of choice.

Passion Planner was created to help you succeed. We believe that the content provided in our planner (the Passion RoadMap, GameChanger, weekly layouts, monthly reflections, and dual to-do lists) will help you create positive change in your life.

Trying to identify your goals is already a difficult and overwhelming task. We want to ensure that there is nothing else that holds you back from reaching your goals.

Q: But the Classic/Compact is the perfect size for me! What if Passion Planner Pro doesn’t work out for me?
A: We understand everyone has their preference. Based on the feedback we’ve received through the years, we believe Passion Planner Pro is just right. Big enough for your dreams, yet small enough to fit in your bag. We hope you’ll give it a try!

If Classic/Compact is the size for you, we will still have Undated planners available while supplies last. These are great for starting any time and contain the same content that will help you achieve all of your goals.

If you are unsatisfied with your Passion Planner, we will always stand by our Passion Planner Promise, which guarantees a refund if you’re unhappy with your purchase.

Q: Will you be offering your PDFs in the B5 size? I want to try it out before I buy.
A: We will continue to offer our PDFs in an A4 and A5 size. B5 is an awkward size for people to print, cut, and bind themselves, but we’re more than happy to provide a B5 PDF for you to try out. Stay tuned for more news on this!

Q: If you want to reduce options, why are you still offering other colors and start days?
A: Based off customer emails and market research, size was the only limiting factor. By only offering one size, we are able to offer multiple designs and BOTH start days (Sunday AND Monday!).

Q: How is this simplifying our lives? Isn’t this just simplifying your business?
A: By offering one size, we hope to reduce the sense of “analysis paralysis” customers often face when choosing between Classic or Compact. Over the past four years, we have received a significant amount of emails from people who have faced this problem. Because of this, people prolonged receiving their planner or didn’t even order at all. You can read more about this in the 1st question above!


Yes, by offering one size we’ll be able to simplify as well. This allows us more time to focus on providing a better experience for our #PashFam by improving the value of our content and the quality of our product.

Q: I backed your new Eco product and love it! Why are you discontinuing it?
A: With Passion Planner Eco, we had hoped to release an exciting, new, and more sustainable product. Unfortunately, when it came to manufacturing in large quantities, expectations fell short not only for us, but for our customers. We received a significant amount of complaints that the booklet would not fit perfectly in the sleeve, which caused a bend in the paper. This design flaw was a distraction that prevented people from using their planner. Our goal is to produce a planner that is free of flaws or distractions so you can focus on what really matters: accomplishing your goals and living your best life.

We are constantly working with our manufacturer to ensure these mistakes do not happen again. Instead of providing two different lines (Eco and Bound) at an okay quality, we are immediately moving forward with one line at its highest quality (Bound). For us, it wasn’t feasible to put out another Eco product this year without testing it and making sure it was at its 100%.

We are still working to find a sustainable option. This may not come in the near-future, but we can still take immediate action to continue helping the environment. What we are doing now is drastically reducing the amount of plastic used during the manufacturing process, continuing to utilize 100% recyclable paper, and donating towards causes that directly help preserve the planet.


Q: What am I going to do with my Eco?
A: Although there is a design flaw with insert the sleeve, the content inside still makes it fully functional! We hope it can continue to help you accomplish your goals through the year.

Multiple #PashFam members have turned this into a fun, DIY project. We’ve seen people use their sleeve to house other books, notepads, or even stickers! Others have bound their booklet with rings or reinforced it with decorative tape.

If you are unsatisfied with your Passion Planner Eco, we are more than happy to issue you a refund or replacement*. We want to ensure you are getting the most out of your purchase and can continue planning your year without any distractions. You can do so here.

Q: I just bought an Eco during the Warehouse Sale! What am I going to do with it?
A: We apologize for any misunderstanding. With our warehouse sales, we hope to offer Passion Planner at a discounted rate for those that would like to try it out. As mentioned in our newsletter and sales pages, these planners have minor cosmetic defects but are still fully functional. We hope it can continue to help you accomplish your goals through the year. 

Q: Why didn’t you tell us about Eco? We should have been informed sooner!
A: After the new year, when everyone had started to use their planner, we received multiple complaints about Eco. We released an Eco statement last March to address everyone’s concerns. You can read it here. If you missed it, the best way to hear news from our company is by following our social media channels or subscribing to our newsletter.

We apologize if anything was not clear in our statement. If you ever have any questions or concerns, our support team is always happy to address them at support@passionplanner.com.

Q: Can I get a refund or replacement for my Eco?
A: If you are unsatisfied with your Passion Planner Eco, we are more than happy to issue you a refund or replacement*. We want to ensure you are getting the most out of your purchase and can continue planning your year without any distractions. You can do so here.

*Not applicable towards Warehouse Sale purchases

Q: Tell us, is this just for the money?
A: For us, it’s always been about the people, not the profit. We offer free PDFs that make Passion Planner accessible to everyone, no matter their financial situation. We always stand by our Passion Planner Promise, which guarantees a refund if you’re unhappy with your purchase. We have our Get One, Give One program, which donates tens of thousands of planners to individuals, schools, and organizations all over the world, entirely free of cost… and we donate towards causes that help create a better world and a better tomorrow.

As a business, yes, we need money to survive. But as Passion Planner, we strive to make the world a better place.
