I have been having so much fun keeping my Attitude of Gratitude going and sharing my goals and dreams with all of you these past few weeks.
As mentioned in my last blog post, I have been getting back into using paper planners to keep track of my priorities and schedule. Not too long ago, I came across Angelia Trinidad’s story of how she dared to dream big and is now running the very successful PassionÂ Planner company. Angelia is a young, female entrepreneur who gives back in so many ways to communities, universities, non-profit organizations, and the hundreds of thousands of followers on her social media platforms. This philosophy is actually built into Angelia’s company mission. (Read more about it here.)
Being an entrepreneur is no small feat. Having done so myself for the past two decades, a great deal of blood, sweat, and tears (so many tears) goes into putting together a business plan, marketing one’s services, and spending hours doing outreach in hopes for just a handful of clients who will help spread the word, all while trying to maintain some sort of work-life balance when both of those sides are now blendedâ€”nay, blurredâ€”into one.
After passing my Registered Dietitian examÂ back in September and announcing I would be wasting no time in launching a private practice, I was gifted a limited edition, compact-sized, undated (Sunday start) Passion Planner by aÂ dear friend and mentor and so, in turn, I’m giving away TWO copies of the same this week (to U.S. residents only for now).Â These planners includeÂ pages for your short- and long-term goals, reflection questions, blank andÂ gridded pages as well asÂ motivational quotes and challenges to keep you actively engaged in creating your best life.
If you’re interested in snagging one of these FREE copies (valued at $30.00 on the Passion Planner site), please leave a comment below or e-mailÂ me (click on “Contact” page for address) by 10pm ET Thu, 12/15 with the following:
- What you’re most passionate about and why.
- How you intend toÂ “pay it forward” (this could be in time, energy, or money).
Two recipients will be selected at random and announced on Fri, 12/16. Best wishes and happy planning!

Wow congratulations for becoming a registered dietician.like you … i have always been passionate in helping others.giving you a brief background…i am an international RN graduate from Phils and its almost been 8 years from my graduation.. the challenge for me to pass the exam was heavy as initially i have so many doubts on myself.reading international graduates wanting to be RN in California is another sad thing as there were a lot who werent successful in their application to take the exam. Some had the verdict to repeat whole RN program and some have to take few subjects so that the education back in Philippines will be credited. If you have the verdict of studying a few subjects to be credited for your education… the road isnt easy too because most schools have a long waitlist already some schools want you to retake whole Rn program and so many were frustrated. I am praying hard to God to help me be eligible to take the exam and to pass the RN exam here in US so i can become a RN who can help others. I like helping others and thats what im passionate about. I always try my best to help whenever i can because the smile i receive from the person is priceless and i get to help the person relieve her worry and stress.
My way of giving back is that i promise once i pass and become an international RN in CA …is that i would help other international RN graduates by giving them information on how i got through… and hoping to instill the never giving up attitude on their dream if they really want to be an RN.
At the moment i am restarting my career here in CA and i hope like you …i will proudly post that i am a CA RN. I apologize for the lengthy post but i just want it out of my chest. Thank you for the chance of winning a planner. Im sure you will help the winners of this planner in making 2017 a memorable year for them too.
Aw, thanks so much for your kind words, Jubilee! I’m confirming receipt of your entry and wish you all the best in following your dreams!
Thanks Dina 🙂 im keeping my fingers cross for next year and hopefully add US RN on my name just like you did. 🙂
