When you're a creative biz owner, you're the marketing manager, VP of sales, CFO, head of customer service - you basically do it all. AND you have to do the creative work that you actually went in business to do! How do you get it all done and still have time to sleep and have a life? I'm here to show you how.
The best project management tool for creative business owners
When you own your business, you do everything, from bookkeeping to marketing to payroll to actually, ya know, performing the services you get paid for. Managing all those tasks can be stressful for even the most organized business owner.
If you're a "write it down" person - I get it. I am too. But I can't tell you how many times I've misplaced a note or a post-it, totally losing my to-do list and my mind.
When I found Trello, it was like a whole new world.
Since using it, I've been able to keep ALL my shit together. Seriously, it's awesome.
- I break it down into days, and I can add things for every day, put in my appointments, and keep my personal life organized. It's totally amazing. I keep it open all day, checking off tasks like the boss babe I am.
- I also use it for my side business, Foster and Flourish - it's ideal for teams. My business partner and I can add tasks, write each other notes, check things off, and easily communicate.
- It's easy enough that my clients can understand it too - if we have a big project management task, I set up a Trello board for them and we can both stay on track. The best part? The free version is pretty awesome (I still use this version myself).
If you want a really useful crash course in Trello, I highly recommend the one from Think Creative Collective. For $29, it's totally worth it - they give you all the board setups, the best workflows, and more.
