Although feeling overwhelmed with your wedding business may be considered normal, that doesn’t mean you can’t take control and come up with a sane scheduled to get everything done. It’s actually super easy to do and will make your business run much more smoothly.
The first thing you need is a calendar. Whether it’s Google calendar, Outlook calendar, or a paper calendar the bottom line is to have one and use it. If you’ve already mastered that step the next thing you need to do is write down everything you have to do in a week and schedule it into that calendar. Again, this isn’t hard to do.
Now comes the slightly harder bit. Once you’ve created a schedule and put it on a calendar you have to actually follow it. Don’t just move things around all the time and tell everyone that of course you have time to help them. Create blocks of time to meet with brides throughout the week, or times for those extra projects and mark them as “Available.” This might seem like a no brainer, but if you haven’t put yourself on a schedule you won’t get everything done.
