As a business owner with a family, I was having a hard time keeping all the things that moms need to do and remember straight! My family does a lot together and I had phone calls, coaching calls, webinars, etc for my business. I needed to find a way to make sure I wasn’t scheduling things on top of each other.
I started using Google Calendar and that really helped! There are several things I love about Google Calendar:
- I can color code events on my calendar so I can tell at a glance what they are.
- I can set up multiple calendars and share them with people I need to. For example, I have my calendar I use for my business and I set up a Family calendar that I shared with my husband so we can both add family activities and we know about them right away.
- I can use my calendar on my phone! This is REALLY helpful because I am less likely to forget about something and I can add things to my calendar at any time.
Here is a picture of my calendar just to show you what I mean.
I have each type of activity colored differently so I know at a glance if it is business related or family related.
If you struggle to keep track of everything you need to do to run a successful business and keep your family sane, checkout Google Calendar! I’m sure you will find it helpful!
