Besides blogging, I earn my income by creating designs for both the web and for print. I need to get focused and organized this year if I want to see my business grow. So I purchased a Signature Avery Binder and customized it with my own design. I received great customer service from Zazzle.com. There was something wrong with my first order but it was taken care in a timely fashion and a replacement was sent out.
I ordered a 1″ Three Ring EZ-Turn Binder. There is two pocket spaces both in the front and in the back. So there plenty of space to hold papers. They also have binders with a 1.5″ and 2″ ring. There is no minimums, so you can order just one starting at $18.95. You may luck out and find a promo code to use in your order like I did.
Since I am not partaking in any of the Football games this Sunday, I decided to get my business binder all set up. Here’s what I added so far: 2011 Monthly Calendar, my working list of services, project number log, and 2011 Agenda. I also added some graph paper I found left over from an old project for brainstorming and a legal pad. I am so glad to have this binder. My work space is very limited. Having everything in one place and at my finger tips is going to very helpful.
To get organize in your business/side hustle you don’t have to get all fancy like I did. Just a regular binder from your local office store will do just fine. However, if you need something to carry all of your materials with you when out networking & trying to meet new clients, I recommend looking in a Custom Binder from Zazzle. They offer different designs to choose from, or your can customize it with your own images like I did. If you would like me to design an image for you, I will be happy to help. Just drop me an email.
