Company description…

At Archer & Olive, we create handcrafted journals and planners that help you plan your days with intention, improve your mental health and carve time out for creativity.

I started my company because…

Journaling has changed the way I experience the world around me. My self-discovery journey started at university when I received a life-changing diagnosis. After learning I had bipolar disorder and general anxiety disorder, I struggled to navigate each transition while prioritizing my own mental health. It wasn’t until a mentor introduced me to the power of journaling that I began to fully embrace life with my diagnosis. Paired with doctor prescribed treatment, journaling helped me organize my thoughts, reduce my anxiety and take control of my mental health. After experiencing my own transformation, I set out to share the empowering tool of journaling with as many people as possible through my paper goods studio, Archer & Olive.

The impact I want my company to have on the world…

I want to encourage everyone to add a little more creativity into their lives. Art, journaling and planning are all tools that have helped me manage anxiety and mental health (as well as everyday stressors). Creativity should be more present in your day to day life.

  1. Expand my product line.
  2. Introduce a VIP platform.
  3. Provide more free educational content.
