On last week's Artists Helping Artist's show we proposed a unique idea for setting goals in 2017. Instead of making a list of a few goals we proposed a twelve-month plan to organize your art business. We proposed twelve ideas you can accomplish each month to organize your art business. Of course in a perfect world we all would like to complete all of these items in January of 2017. But it's just not possible. Because some of these projects are really big.
I do think we all need to pick twelve projects specifically suited to our own art businesses. But feel free to use as many of our ideas as you want. Just pick twelve and then schedule one for each month of the new year.
For January we proposed the goal to "Organize your art office”.
This means organizing your file folders. Throw out the ones you don’t use and don’t need. Set up new folders to organize the piles of information sitting on your desk or in your studio. You also need new 2017 folders for expenses, art shows, etc. It’s time to get the business side of your art business organized. And this shouldn’t take too long. (Which is a good thing because month #2 is a big one.)
Are you going to give it a try? I am so excited to get started right away.
