I'm so excited to share this with you guys! Me & @getfiled collaborated on something and we are all excited to bring you the 2017 Filed planners!!! Yep you heard it right 😄 Since we already started the BER months so it means we need to evaluate what we've done for this year & maybe start planning out our next endeavors. So if you want to get a 50% discount on the 2017 Filed planners during the pre-order period (date TBA), simply follow the mechanics below: 1. Follow @getfiled to be able to join & make sure your account is public. 2. Flatlay a lettering/calligraphy/drawing/painting/illustration or even a papercut artwork of your ultimate goal in life and complete this sentence as your caption “_______ is my #GoldenGoal in life because ________.” 3. Once done, you have to tag one person and ask them to join the game too so they can both win. 4. You have to use the hashtags #FILEDGoldenGoal so we can track your entries.
