Testimonials and Reviews

I just want to let you know that I LOVE my Ink+Volt Planner. It's already encouraging me to work harder to reach my goals. Not to mention providing the focus to figure out what my goals are to begin with :).

Thank you for the work you put into this planner to help people like me become a little bit more like the person I want to be.


My wife and I have a small business and are finding that the Ink+Volt Planner is extremely effective in our planning, prioritization, and execution of actions. In addition, we find that this is a great tool to document short and longer term goals and aspirations in one place. While it is taking time to let go and rely less on digital technology to plan and execute, we find that writing things down and integrating colorful diagrams promotes clearer thinking, making it easier to visualize, plan and answer the what, who, where, when, why, and how questions in our personal and business life.
Thanks for creating the Ink+Volt Planner!


Thank you. I received the planner today - and I have to say, its not quite what I was expecting....

Its even BETTER! I love it! I cannot wait to dive into it! I'm a very technology oriented person, but I find that I'm better if I take the time to write certain things down.
Thanks again! I can't wait to be able to get my life in the book!




I've never written a review but the Ink+Volt Planner and its creator deserve the praise. I bought the Ink+Volt Planner, skeptical that this attempt would be any different than my previous attempts of organization. Half full journals scatter my home, yet I still wasn't reaching my goals. I felt time fly with low productivity, and zero advancement on my goals.

I had no idea the Ink+Volt Planner could have such an impact on my life. It forced me to take a look at what I really want.

My meetings went from hectic and stressful to relaxed and insightful.
My nights aren't filled with residual work because I accomplish big things everyday. I can enjoy my evenings.
My "to-do list" is a short pointed list of tasks I want to do, not have to.
My happiness level is exceptionally high, seeing my vision come to life has a profound effect.

The Ink+Volt Planner changed everything. From the day I started using it, I was addicted to it. The design is flawless, it seems super simple but when you start applying it, you realize it is simple by design and complex in its effectiveness. It is like subliminal messaging to yourself. I am constantly glancing back and forth between daily tasks and long term goals. It forces me to plan my tasks very strategically. In my eyes, it is a fail proof system for reaching your goals.

As an ironman athlete, I wish I had the Ink+Volt Planner when I was training. In the past 7 days of using my Ink+Volt Planner, I've been more productive than the last 6 months combined (embarrassing but true, and a testament to the planner.)

Living in a world of distraction, people need this notebook. If you are debating buying the Spark Notebook, buy five and get them overnighted and it will be the best X amount of dollars you ever spent.

I bought the 5 month planner a week ago and today I am buying two more, in fear she may run out. Well done, Kate. Anyone can tell you put your heart and soul into this and it's a work of art.




I decided to order a Ink+Volt Planner after all, and it arrived today. I have to tell you that I'm quite impressed. I am getting my masters degree in book publishing. From a publishers point of view, the Ink+Volt Planner is a masterfully published book. The binding is well suited the job at hand, and the attention to detail is superlative. Thank you!




I am excited about my new planner for next year— I already had, like, 2 for 2017 (I love planners and being organized)… but I am going to use the Volt starting in a few weeks because it is going to make me think and grow while also being organized!!

It took me some time to answer the first planning sheet’s questions. I also printed out the goals for January and the year ahead when you sent out the PDFs. I am a bit lost and have 1% inkling of what I might plan for 2017…. so that is why I appreciate the extra help so much!

Can’t wait to see how far I can go and what I actually can accomplish in terms of goals, not just daily to-dos!




I wanted to drop you a line saying how the Ink+Volt Planner has literally changed my life. I am a writer (both creative and freelance) and have always struggled to keep myself on track with my own personal deadlines, and to keep all the balls in the air.

This planner has made me so much more motivated-- by showing me the tangible benefits of my goals-- and showed me how tiny things add up. The combination of big picture and small picture really helps me. I would never have gotten as much done on my novel and on my freelance work without it.

So thanks again! I will recommend this planner to all creatives!




I just wanted to thank you for creating the Ink+Volt Planner. This will be my second year with the planner, and I look forward to seeing all that I'll be able to accomplish with the nonprofit I created in Feb of this year. There is plenty I could share, but just wanted to let you know that I look at the planner as more than just a way of staying organized, but as a journal that I'll be able to look back on and even pass onto my children and grandchildren. My great-grandfather was the owner of a very successful company, and although we have official documents from his business, it would have been amazing to read his thoughts and goals as he worked towards selling the business. This is what I'm hoping to give to my posterity.
