Organizing Your Business

Gaetana, a member of the Jetteam,  has contributed this week's feature. Organizing our business is very important and she has shared some of her expertise with us here. Her shop is SatinDollCO.

At the beginning of 2015 one of my goals for the year was to be more organized. I'm organized generally but I wanted to streamline it. I achieved that by first going back to a planner. Within 2015,  I switched planners from a weekly/monthly bound book to a traveler's journal. Within that journal I have notebooks for different areas of my life. Switching to that style has been a life saver. (shown below my traveler's journal that I use now)

Another one of my goals for 2015 was to blog more. Which I did terribly  with in 2014. So one of the notebooks with my planner is dedicated to blogging.


As you can see it has an area to write my blog topic, the date it will be posted, if I have written it, graphics and then my social media outlets. Here is the link if you would like to print this out and use for your own business. https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B-DjU8ALrtcQQ1VxeXVPaFlEQlU/view?usp=sharing







Previously,  I was using the notes section in the back of my other planner as my dedicated area to write my blog topics I wanted to do. Then next to the topic I would write a "D" if I wrote it and and the date I posted it. It was an okay way but not very effective.






This new way is more effective and clean. Don't fret if you don't own a traveler's journal or have a different style of planner or don't have a planner at all. If you have a ring binder, simply cut down the middle and then punch the holes for your planner. If you're not into a planner, simply print and cut in half. Staple or leave loose for your own convenience .






Hope this helps anyone who is hoping to get more into blogging and be more organized.
