Project Description

Emily Ley is the creator of the top-selling Simplified Planner®, designer, flourishing entrepreneur, author and mother of three young children. She knows all too well the pressure women feel today to do it all. So, she created a line of products designed to make life more colorful, more joyful, and most importantly, a bit easier.

As a busy wife, new mother, business owner, and designer, Emily Ley came to a point when she suddenly realized she couldn’t do it all. She needed to simplify her life, organize her days, and prioritize the priorities. She decided to hold herself to a standard of grace rather than perfection. This mantra led to the creation of her bestselling Simplified Planner®, a favorite among busy women everywhere—from mamas to executives and everywhere in between.
