To Do List; Can’t Function Without It.

This past holiday weekend had me all over the place. The kids were out of school, the Man Hunk was off from work. That meant more cooking, cleaning, and yelling LOL! I wouldn’t have been able to get through the weekend without my “things to do” list.

This “things to do” list is the latest template I designed to go with the Monthly Content Planner and Blog Post Planner set. The set is designed to help keep you focused and on track.

For example, I used the Monthly Content Planner way ahead of time to organize all of my social media content so it will go along with the items I’ve been wanting to release. The project for this week was cake toppers.

Monthly Content Planner I knew that I would be busy with the production of the cake toppers, so on my Monthly Content Planner I had planned to post “sneak peeks” to my Instagram/Twitter/Facebook pages. It allowed me to have something quick and easy to post while not fully giving away all of the details.  

Next, I used my “Things To Do” list to keep me on track for those couple of days that I was working on this project. It may not seem like it, but a lot goes into promoting these items. For example, here’s a glimpse at my process:

Planning (Content Planner/Project Planning)

Design Projects

Build/Create

Photograph and Edit

List Items in Etsy Shop

Promote on Social Media

Blog

This is a basic structure and there really is more to the list you see up above. Using my cake topper project again as an example, taking these pictures required me to bake and decorate an actual cake LOL! I literally had to tell my peeps not to touch the cake until after I was done taking the photo’s. Then I realized that my 3-year-old would not understand my struggle, so I baked two cakes just so they could dig in to one and leave my prop cake alone. Let’s not even talk about the set up. See my previous Flat Lay post for reference. But, here’s a behind the scenes look just for shits and giggles:

Once I was done listing these items to my Etsy shop and promoting the items on social media, I wanted to share a bit of this process and that’s when the “Blog Post Planner” came into play. As you can see, these items require a lot of planning and execution; without my templates I wouldn’t have been able to stick to my desired time frame. I’ve figured out a way to plan ahead and this works great for me. If you need help planning for your business check out my templates here:
