How many of you are juggling your own business, a family, and a day job? You would be surprised how many more artists are managing all three of these aspects in their lives, especially those who are new to the craft scene. Currently I work as a fraud analyst reviewing on-line purchases, have my won jewelry business, and have a three year old son needs just as much attention! So how do I manage to balance? Time management and prioritizing the important parts of life. It’s important to make sure you are still spending quality time with your family as well as running your business.
For starters I am a “scheduleaholic”, I am not the most tedious scheduler but I do make a list of objectives for the week both personal and business related. One day I will focus on getting marketing promotions, taking pictures, and working on a new idea out of the way for the business and also penciling in watching a movie and taking a trip to the park for with the family. Writing done your focuses, what you plan on doing and scheduling time slots to for those dedicated objectives will keep you on top of time management and helps make sure you dedicate yourself to every aspect of your life.
