I’m Grace affectionately known as GG! My parents often refer to me as a busy body. They would always say to me “Grace, you just can’t sit still!” Sitting still was never my strong suit. I’ve been an avid planner user since I was ten. A planner has been part of my back to school shopping list since the 5th grade. Daily planners have been imperative in keeping me organized. Jesus, art, music and travel make my heart smile!
After years of purchasing planners, I realized that there were no planners that were reflective of my vibrant culture or offered me the balance that I needed. Yes, it helped me stay busy but it never helped me sit still and reflect. I wanted an all-encompassing planner that included tips on fiscal responsibility, personal empowerment, spiritual well-being and self-care. Each day is a step toward your destiny and I wanted to create a planner that reflected that notion.

I desired to produce a planner that showcased our magic at its best. Bold, vibrant Ankara print is incorporated in The Arrivista Planner design. I am extremely proud of my rich Ghanaian heritage and wanted to display the beauty of our traditional prints. Our 1st edition showcases our exclusive print and we plan on expanding our line with varying prints in the forthcoming editions.
For women who find the typical path to personal and professional success demanding, unrealistic, and at odds with their faith and values, The Arrivista Planner is a breath of fresh air. It provides community and the concrete and measurable steps needed to achieve goals, live well, and love well.
The Arrivista Planner has a bold, daring style that speaks to the inimitability and incomparable style of a woman on a mission.
Ludacris said it best “our time and our clothes gotta coordinate!” I decided to take heed and launch our coordinating print-wrapped bamboo earrings. Chic, bold and vibrant, they will be a staple in every Arrivista’s jewelry collection.
