Organize Your Art Biz Begins November 12

Office Worker with Mountain of PaperworkArtists: Are you feeling overwhelmed by all you have to do to run a business?
Are you drowning in clutter?
Have you lost time to poor habits?

I know all about these traps. I deal with them every day.

It’s time to get yourself in order!

You can’t build a successful, well-greased art business if you’re constantly missing deadlines or wondering where you put something.

In Organize Your Art Biz class, you will:

  • Conquer piles
  • Make proper files so you can find stuff!
  • Create or clean up e-files – again, so you can find stuff!
  • Become more productive by effectively managing your projects and tasks
  • Work toward going (mostly) paperless – saving some trees
  • Process mail and email so that it doesn’t clog up your systems

Here’s What We Cover in Organize Your Art Biz

1

 Prepare for Positive Change

Get in the right frame of mind to make big progress over the next 24 days. Delivered on Day 1 of class.

2

 Assess the Mess

You don’t need to fix what’s not broken. My quick assessment will tell you where you should focus your energy for the duration of the class. Delivered on Day 2 of class.

3

 Love Your Office

It’s no fun to spend time working on your business if your environment is unattractive. You’ll show your workspace a lot of love during the 3 days allotted for this lesson. Delivered on Day 3 of class.

4

Get a Grip on Projects and Tasks

Before you start unpiling and filing, you have to make sure you have a place to capture  the important stuff. We’ll focus on the systems you use for staying on top of your To Dos. Delivered on Day 6 of class.

5

Conquer Paper and Piles

Everyone has these! It’s time to recycle and file all of this paper that you are stepping over or pushing from place to place. Delivered on Day 8 of class.

6

Practice Mindfulness + Anti-Procrastination Day

At the half-way point in class, I’ll remind you of how you probably got disorganized in the first place and encourage you to create new habits for avoiding future chaos. You’ll get a little longer break here to catch up on previous lessons. Delivered on Day 9 of class.

7

Remember Everything with Evernote

I don’t know how I was ever organized without Evernote! I will reveal how I use this amazing piece of software to help me file ideas, data, and more electronically. Delivered on Day 13 of class.

8

Tame Your Electronic Files

Now that you have Evernote in place, you can begin to work on cleaning out and reorganizing your computer documents, images, and folders. Delivered on Day 15 of class.

9

Empty Your Inbox

Your inbox isn’t a task list. With your new systems, you have places to keep what you think is important in your inbox. And you’ll have a long weekend to catch up on e-filing. Delivered on Day 16 of class.

10

Save Time with Systems

This is one of my favorite lessons! Throughout the class, we focus on creating new systems, but here we’ll start documenting those systems by creating policies, procedures, and forms. Delivered on Day 20 of class.

11

Fix Your Financial Flow

From the moment you get an invoice or a receipt, what steps do you take to make sure you are tracking your money and focusing on profits? And how do you ensure payment from others? Delivered on Day 27 of class.

Stay Organized

Everyone can get organized. The trick is staying organized. I’ll share my best tips in our final lesson. Delivered on Day 30 of class.

Your investment in this program to help bring you peace of mind is just $147.
Alternatively, you may select two easy payments of $86.

I want you to be energized by all of the creative space you’ve made for yourself.

Here’s What You Get in Organize Your Art Biz

3 Lessons Every Week

I personally coach you through each lesson through audio (MP3 download) and written lessons delivered on-demand and waiting for you at a time that works with your schedule. Every lesson is filled with what I have learned in the many years of teaching this class – and updated so that you have the latest information.

Written Transcripts of All Lessons

Because we learn differently when we read than when we listen, every lessons will also be provided in transcript form (PDF download).

Time To Do The Lessons

In previous organizing classes, my students received one lesson every day. (!) The focus of this new class is to not just give you information, but to encourage you to implement it while we’re together.

Interaction With Other Artists Getting Organized

You receive membership into a private Facebook group with your peers. I am not an active participant in this group, but this is an invaluable connection with other artists who are on a journey similar to your own.

Wrap-Up Coaching Call

I have set aside 1 hour to answer any final or pressing questions you have about the work you’ve done in class. If you cannot make the call, you can submit questions in advance and listen to the recording later. Date and time TBA.

Log onto your computer from the comfort of your home, office, local coffee shop, or interplanetary traveling craft.

Class lessons will be posted on the days identified in the content description above. See also the Curriculum.

You will get out of the class as much as you put into it.
I suggest setting aside time in the morning to do the class lessons.

As with most classes, some lessons will speak to you more than other lessons.
You decide whether you spend 30 minutes or two hours or more on the lesson.

MY PERSONAL GUARANTEE

I promise that if you do the work and apply the lessons, you will have a better organized art business based on systems you can trust. If not, I will refund 100% of your money.

I further promise that if you feel this program was misrepresented in any way, I will refund 100% of your money.
