Well here we are Day 1 of the 31 Days of Blogging Challenge! I am so excited that October is FINALLY HERE!! I feel like we have been talking and preparing for it since July. I have been thinking about this series for awhile and looking forward to the next month as I share my tips about organizing your online business.
As a Virtual Assistant I love to tell people that “I organize the boring parts of the business so my clients can do the creative things they love to do.”
As creatives organization isn’t always your strong suit. Even I have my struggles. (You DO NOT want to see my desk right now). No matter what kind of online business or blog you have you need to have some kind of organizational system in place.
When you first start off you may not have a lot to handle but eventually you will. And it’s good to start a good organization system when you are small in trying to figure out how to handle everything.
I know so many entrepreneurs who say they’ll just learn to be organized later but later never comes. One of the main reasons you need to be organized from the beginning is come January for that lovely thing most people hate called TAXES!! If you are unorganized you won’t have any copies of receipts you may need. Income.
Heck if you are really unorganized you may not even know if everyone paid you! That is a BIG DEAL! You need to make sure you are getting paid for the work you do. I have heard many horror stories of these types of situations.
If you don’t keep good records of your receipts you won’t be able to deduct a lot of things from your taxes. This is a big deal you want to take as many deductions as possible. The more you deduct the less you will end up paying in taxes. It’s really a win-win all around.
So if you have trouble organizing your online business and want tips, apps, and courses to help you organize your business or learn things a Virtual Assistant can help you with make sure to continue following me for the month of October!
