Introducing our brand new series, 2022, It's Nice To Meet You.
Every week for the next few months we will be highlighting one inspiring individual & chatting to them about their career, their love for a physical diary, the learnings they are taking from 2021 & what they are most looking forward to 'meeting' in 2022.
To start the series, meet Victoria Harris, the Co-Founder of The Curve, an education platform providing investing and finance content to women globally.
Name: Victoria Harris
Occupation: Co-Founder of The Curve
What are you most looking forward to ‘meeting’ in 2022?
I'm excited to ‘meet’ year 2 of The Curve. The first 12 months have been such a whirlwind but rewarding experience already. We have so many things in the pipeline for 2022 - it will be busy but exciting! I’m also looking forward to spending some overdue quality time with friends and family.
Reflecting back on 2021, what is something you have learnt that you will take through to 2022?
I have learnt that things don’t always go as planned, in business and personal life. I have learnt to appreciate and celebrate the small wins and try my best to not be derailed from setbacks or when things don’t go as expected. Life is never a straight line.
What is one personal, professional or financial goal you will be tracking in your 2022 Diary?
Professionally, I would like The Curve to reach a lot more women. The success to-date has been amazing, but there are still so many more that could benefit from increased financial knowledge.
How many years have you been using an An Organised Life Diary?
The last 3 years. I love how beautifully curated they are.
What 2022 diary did you pick & why did you choose that style?
I picked the 2022 Weekly Diary Beige with Gold Foil and Gold Monogramming. I have historically used the black daily planner but thought I would mix it up and go for beige this year.
Talk us through that feeling when you first unboxed your new AOL 2022 Diary? What did you notice? Feel? Smell?
There was definitely a high level of excitement and anticipation when it arrived. And my expectations were exceeded; it was so much more beautiful and elegant than I had expected. And the personal note made it all the more special! I was one happy lady.
What is your favourite feature in your 2022 diary & how will it help you stay organised?
I have so many other black items in my handbag; laptop case, phone, wallet etc so breaking it up with some beige will be great. Plus, it will be much easier to find! I also love how this diary (compared to the previous AOL ones I have used) shows the full week across two pages - that will really help me keep on top of my goals and achievements for the week.
What are the top 3 ways you organise your life?
Have a diary (with multiple ‘To Do’ lists), frequently check-in on my long-term goals and ensure I prioritise ‘me’ time.
What are 3 things in your wellbeing toolkit?
Daily exercise, eating well and spending time with friends and family.
What are your current desk essentials?
My laptop, my AOL diary and my ‘deep focus’ playlist - it’s calming but motivating too.
Top WFH organisation hack?
Start everyday with a sense of purpose and a positive mindset.
