We knew you would stop in here. The reason we knew is we do it too. Just like you, we want to know the “who” behind the “what” of all the things we get involved in.
With that in mind, we decided to let you know “who” we really are.
A wild and crazy bunch – that’s “who”
Well, who else would use the internet, of all places, to shout the message that writing by hand will help you grow yourself, your interests and your business? Yep, that’s us.
We have a few other quirks too
We are all about using a handwritten journal for all sorts of reasons. And we are journal aficionados who also suggest you don’t have to write every day in order to get full benefit from your journal. If that has you gasping, just wait, there’s more.
When you buy a journal from some places the transaction is done. The deal is complete. You go about your way with your lovely new journal and the seller of the journal heads to the bank.
But, the wild and crazy bunch you’ve stumbled onto here has a different take on things. Sure we want you to invest in our journals and our studies, more importantly we want you to use them. And, we go to all sorts of lengths to get you to do so.
We give you ideas, tips, exercises and on and on to get you to write in your journal. You could be a cynic and say, “Why, of course, you want me to use it up and buy another one.” And, yes, that would be true – to some degree. We can only hang around because people love and purchase our products.
But there is more to it than that
- Since we, the Journal in a Box team, are all history buffs we understand the importance of a journal as an historical reference point for the generations to come.
- Because we, like you, are always trying to improve, to get better at being who we are we understand how important a journal is for recording and analyzing in order to speed the process of personal growth. We call it Journalating – using your journal to get things done.
- Through our own pursuits of things which interest us (hunting, wine, children, vacations, and so on) we appreciate having a ready-made system to follow which lets us explore our interests, record the happenings concerning them and even pushes us to explore those interests further.
- By virtue of the fact that we own a business we know how crucial it is to have a tool which not only helps us maintain focus but also serves as a guide for “what’s next” thinking. Journalating to the nth degree.
You are the reason we’re here
And the most critical point is we believe You Are Important.
- Only you can tell your story your way.
- You are the person who decides to take the measures which will make you a better person.
- You have jobs, hobbies, pastimes, aspirations, delights, avocations and . . . well, to put it simply; you have interests which you enjoy exploring, interests that make you more interesting.
- You have a job or a business or go to school or care for a home and what you do in any of those cases matters. It matters to you, to your family, to friends, neighbors, coworkers, partners, employees, customers, clients and us.

The Older Sister and the Little Brother seen pictured in our Banner Photo, as well as the Little Sister on her way are the inspiration, the joy, and the giggle (make that full-throated laugh) behind the scenes here at Journal in a Box.
We believe everybody merits the right to blatantly pursue success.
We believe taking charge of all aspects involved in blatant pursuit of success is more easily achieved by the simple focusing technique of applying thoughts, ideas and plans to paper. We believe the archiving of the paper in the simple form of a journal makes the value of the process of writing increase exponentially. We believe in making the process as simple as possible and the outcome as impressive as possible.
We motivate people to pursue success by inspiring them to proactively focus on going after their personal and professional passions.
We work with people who choose to be more successful in one or several different areas of their lives. We work with people who understand “overnight success” usually takes time to achieve. We work with people who are prepared to challenge themselves, who believe in taking calculated risks, and who are willing to go all out to achieve their objectives.
If you want to get to know us better we suggest you spend some time looking around through this site then sign up for our free informational newsletter. You’ll be glad you did – just ask the Older Sister, she knows.
