What is planIThow all about?

planIThow is all about getting everyone to value and save their time. The founders of planIThow are a time starved couple with 3 little girls. On the About page, you can read how the frustration of planning their oldest daughter's 5th birthday resulted in launching planIThow in 2014. Since then, they've been building on this idea that our time is worth something.

Those who are fortunate enough to be employed, might think their time is worth what their employer is willing to pay them. At planIThow, we see time a little differently. We believe time should be seen as a commodity and be subject to the principles of supply and demand. In other words, if you make minimum wage at your job, but have NO free time; then your time is worth a lot more than an executive who has TONS of free time. The idea is simple; the less time you have, the more valuable it becomes.

We want people to look at their time this way to help gauge when they should consider hiring someone rather than doing everything on their own. We have a handy-dandy tool called a planITometer to help guide you. Below is a screenshot showing you what it looks like, but the best way to try it out is to use it right now to help determine if requesting a travel quote is right for you:

The travel planITometer asks you 4 questions to estimate what an hour of your time is worth. The planITometer then estimates how much time it would take you to book the trip on your own. Lastly, the planITometer recommends either doing it yourself or hiring a professional.

At planIThow, we're not just pushing you toward using service providers. What we're really trying to do is help people to look at their time differently. Your time should really be YOUR TIME! The planITometer just helps to put perspective around what your time is worth, to help you make the best decision.

Travel quoting is our first service offering; but in the near future, we have plans to expand to additional services. All services will have a dedicated planITometer to help guide decisions on hiring providers.

Lastly, at planIThow we also like to encourage people to use their free time to help improve their local communities. We offer a few suggestions on our Give Back page. Not everyone has time for themselves, let alone time to give back, but we're trying to change all that at planIThow. You should have more of your time to do what you want with it!

We invite you to give planIThow a try and request a NO OBLIGATION travel quote today! It's the first step in getting your time back!
