Artists: Are you overwhelmed
by all you have to do to run a business?

Are you drowning in clutter?
Have you lost time to poor habits?
Before & After Organize Your Art Biz Class

Lisa Aksen shows off her new space after Organize Your Art Biz.

It’s time to get yourself in order!

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

Begins December 1

In my Organize Your Art Biz program, you will:

ABLO-SP_5-YellowCheckmark Conquer piles
ABLO-SP_5-YellowCheckmark Make proper files so you can find stuff!
ABLO-SP_5-YellowCheckmark Create or clean up e-files – again, so you can find stuff!
ABLO-SP_5-YellowCheckmark Become more productive by effectively managing your projects and tasks
ABLO-SP_5-YellowCheckmark Work toward going (mostly) paperless – saving some trees
ABLO-SP_5-YellowCheckmark Process mail and email so that it doesn’t clog up your systems



Here’s what we’ll cover in Organize Your Art Biz:


#1 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.

#2 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.

#3 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.

#4 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. BONUS: I recently recorded a live webinar to show you my task list and use of Evernote since it’s easier to demonstrate with video. You’ll have access to this.

#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.

#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.

#7 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.

#8 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.

#9 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.

#10 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?

#11 Stay Organized

Everyone can get organized. The trick is staying organized. I’ll share my best tips in our final lesson.

Begins December 1

I’m almost completely shocked! I have a FLOOR!!!!

And, I can walk (or dance) around the room for the first time in years! Still have “The Stacks” to address, and more bins to purge and organize, but this is truly the first time in years since I’ve felt this good about my office.

The weight that is lifting is palpable, inside and out. Incredibly thankful.

I first started teaching artists how to get better organized in 2002 and have taught a version of this class every year since that time. Over the years, I have perfected my systems and updated the class information accordingly.

I’ve spent plenty of time studying how to be more organized and productive and will show you – in Organize Your Art Biz – what I have learned that allows me to run a focused, successful business.

Tips for Success
Log in at a time that is convenient for you. I suggest mornings if you can swing it. The only time we have a scheduled appointment to meet is for the wrap-up coaching call, which is to be announced.
You decide whether to spend 30 minutes or two hours on a lesson. You can’t do it all, so prioritize the content.
Don’t fix what isn’t broken. If you have a system that works for you, focus on another aspect of getting organized.

Have a question not covered here? Just ask!
