Today I’d love to share with you all my office routine!
If you’re interested in my shooting routine check out this blog post here.
I have so many hacks I use to get so much done in one day’s time and I’d love to share them with you!
I get so many messages asking “how do you run all 3 of your businesses and still have free time & time to travel around the world?!”
And today I’d love to answer that Q for ya!
So first off here’s what my work routine looks like (I work M-F 9am-3pm & I shoot on Tue & Wed), but here’s what my office work routine looks like (on most days):
- Gym/walk the dog
- Work -Lunch with Aaron (he always comes home for lunch as he works just blocks away)
- Hang with Aaron/our pet children/friends
If you want to work less and accomplish more the key is to better PLAN. Below I’ve included some tips on how to get more done in less time.
1. Turn off all distractions
X out of all the tabs you’re not currently working on. Only go on Facebook when it’s work related or after work hours. Put your phone on airplane mode and X-out of any other distracting apps. Sometimes I even turn off my wifi altogether. You won’t believe what you can get done when you work without distractions!
2. Set work hours
If you don’t currently have work hours you NEED to! I know you started your own business to break free of the corporate chains but honestly – I get why businesses have work hours. IT WORKS. Your friends and family will know when to not stop by / bother you. You will be able to stick to a routine to get more done. I even have my work hours posted on my office door so if the cleaning lady, friend, family, anyone stops by they know I’m in empire building mode – ha!
3. Use helpful tools
I use asana.com to plan out every 6 months in advance. This includes everything for my business – content creation, marketing efforts, recurring tasks like checking customer service inbox, etc. etc. If you’re not using something to organize and plan ahead I would highly recommend you use Asana and the best part? It’s 100% free!
4. Get help
Outsource as much as you can! Still doing your bookkeeping/accounting?! WHY?! Literally this is the biggest one I do not understand why people do it themselves. I’ve been outsourcing my bookkeeping since DAY 1 and as you know I did not make much my first year. But here’s the thing accountants are more affordable than you think! The less you make the less work it is for them and therefore the less they charge. I also have a VA that schedules all my content, answers my emails & does so much more. I understand in the beginning when you’re first starting out it’s probably not in the budget but as soon as it is get some help! You will not be able to grow your business without help! There are only so many hours in the day.
Alrighty friends there it is. My daily office work routine! I hope you find this helpful when getting more done in less time in your business! Especially us photographers we need to get as much done in as little time as possible because many days we’re shooting!
