If you are a maker, either for a creative outlet or for profit, you know that Autumn heralds that frenzied time called The Holidays. You are making for upcoming shows, for gifts, for donations. Being productive has never been so important but the sense of being rushed can put a damper on the most well-intentioned craftsperson.
Join Barbara (@penguintrax), Haley (@thezenofmaking), and guest expert Kim Werker (@kpwerker) on Tuesday, October 30 at 2 PM EST to talk about how you can set the stage for productivity as a maker AND/OR craft business owner. We’ll touch on everything from organizing your work area to avoid distractions to organizing a spreadsheet to track expenses.
After the social, check back for a Resource Roundup and add a reminder to your calendar for our next event, on November 27. Our topic will be Holiday 911: Spreading Out Creative Work & Avoiding the Last Minute Rush, a perfect fit with next week’s topic.
