HoneyBook Mondays – During the holiday season

November is here. That means our year is almost over. My favorite months of the year (I say this about every season), however Christmas is truly my holiday. I love getting together with my family and having children makes the holiday so much more joyous.

What does this mean for my calligraphy? The winter seasons are booked full and I’m usually swamped. This year, I made much more of an effort to stay on top of my projects and not over book myself. I am using HoneyBook for all of my templates, projects, proposals, contracts, invoices etc. It makes it so much easier than last year. My website is through WordPress so I do have a bit of information on there but I am not a complete genius; so I use HoneyBook to make my life simpler.

Here’s one of my current projects. Melissa had contacted me for a quote for a list of calligraphy items for her wedding. On this page, I am able to get a quick glance of what’s going on with this project. I get to put in the dates of tasks I need completed. I can view her response to my questionnaire at any time. I find that super helpful when I can’t recall the specifics.  

I previously posted about how easy it is to collaborate and find other talented people. That is seriously one of my favorite things to do, collaborate. But I can’t really get the time to participate in so many activities if my books aren’t in order. Managing the business side of contracts and invoices can be too time consuming. Especially for someone like me. I am a stay at home mom so most of my time is dedicated to my children. I really enjoy the ease of my client interactions because of HoneyBook. I know it’s hard to believe but you should at least give it a try! You can sign up for a free trial and/or use my code to get 50% off of your first year.
