We know how hard it is to juggle everything on your list. And everything that is....not on your list.
There's social media, product meetings, sales meetings, marketing meetings, meetings for meetings, basic operations of the business (someone has to order shipping supplies!), and don't forget to leave time to be inspired, connect with your customers, stay up to date on the latest Instagram algorithm (oooooffffff) annnd breathe.
But, remember this is what it is all about! No, not the algorithm but the process, the journey, and the everyday basics of being a maker or small business owner. There is a sweetness in the work even on the hardest of days, don't you think? We're still firm believers in working smarter and not harder, though, and having a day off when we can so, we put together a list of three simple tools to help improve your workflow.
So, let's vow to stress a little bit less this year and enjoy the blooming opportunities and ideas ahead.
