SCHEDULES + LISTS. As a creative business owner, that’s how you make shit happen!
I’ve been freelancing for over 7 years now and I can’t tell you how important keeping a schedule and a routine is to the success of my business. The times when I’d break away and just “wing it” – my finances and my prospects plummeted.
Your clients and your readers like to know that you’re around. They want to know when they can expect you and that you’re a constant force in their little universe.
This means that even as creatives we have to organize our thoughts and be very specific about what, and where, and when things need to happen. THIS means keeping detailed lists and having a business routine that you actually follow (like a religion but with less funny hats… unless that’s your thing, in that case it’s exactly like a religion… too far?)
Anyway, I created this workbook to share my Business Routine Breakdown Checklist with you. It has my daily, weekly, monthly routine as well as an extra page that you can print out and and use to create your own checklist. So feel free to use and tweak it to meet your own needs.
