Last week, Andrew Fraser and I teamed up again to offer a session to business owners - this time we planned a full day of learning and action taking after hosting our sold-out intro session in December.
We gathered a roomful of passionate and keen entrepreneurs who are ready to grow their business - some have been at it for decades and some are at the beginning. Because growth happens at all stages, in different ways, we built methods and learning to support folks wherever they are.
We all hosted this session at the lovely WorkSpace Bedford. The reception was outstanding and they even gifted our guests with a week of free co-working. if you are looking for a workspace (they offer free co-working on Fridays and there is so much free parking). Follow them over on Instagram @workspacebedford to see how much they love their co-working members...hint: there are often treats waiting for you at the office!
I used to be a dedicated paper planner user and was so happy when a friend and co-worker introduced me to Polestar planners - did you ever use one of those? Maybe you still do? I loved mine and it was where I jotted everything down (work and life) back in the day before I had a cell phone...it's almost hard to believe I didn't carry a phone with me at all times?!
It has only really been with in the last couple of years since I stopped using a paper planner (but to be completely honest? I have a fancy 90 day planner I haven't used yet...more on that in another post!) and went digital and shifted everything over to google calendar.
It was certainly an adjustment (though, I still keep a notebook in my bag!) to go digital but I can't imagine it any other way now. Being able to share a family calendar, access it on the go in order to confirm meetings and set up client work is worth the awkward transition time it takes to swap it all over.
Have you gone 100% digital? Or do you stray away from cloud-based calendars?
Maybe you have a hybrid system?
Do you use a planner? Write lists on scraps of paper? Hold your breath and cross your fingers that you don’t forget anything? Family calendar on the fridge or inside the cupboard door?
Please share in the comments what kind of system you use in your life/work/business!
