Direct Sales Planner
Lately a bunch of my creative juices have been tied up in creating a direct sales planner for my Lilla Rose business.  I was tired of having random piles of paper and post-it notes and important things written on the backs of envelopes.  Then I’d frantically clean my desk and throw away important notes and ...
