Both Baynard and Murthy thought a collaboration was fitting. Murthy has aimed to make Gitane a place for mothers and daughters – “I have fashion for people from their 20s to their 70s,” she said – while Baynard focuses on helping her clients control their time.
Baynard has given many “bullet journaling” workshops, both at libraries and at events. She is scheduled to appear on “The Dr. Oz Show” next month.
“I love working with women and families, showing that you can have a full life without it being too full,” Baynard said.
Like Murthy, Baynard is well traveled and has a variety of life experience. After teaching English as a second language in Chicago and working as a teacher trainer in Colorado, she was looking for something unique to do when her family moved to Los Altos.
“I thought, if we are going to move again, I should start my business,” she said. “I still liked working with people, and I wanted to bring people together for unique experiences.”
