I'm self employed -- and when you are you really have to stay on top of everything! lol What are some of your favorite organizational tips? Here are some of my favorites: Cinnamon Software's Talking Alarm Clock -- this is FREE downloadable software for your PC that reminds you when to do things. Very cool and fun. My to-do list. I make one every night and prioritize it. Live by the list -- die by the list. The 4 Hour Workweek. Very interesting book. I have to say I don't agree with EVERYTHING it says, but there are some excellent points. Have you read it yet? What about you? What are some of your favorite organizational tips for being self-employed? :)

I do have the to do list; however, I write on it each day, as there are times that it must be changed quickly. A business owner must be flexible willing to hire somebody when it would really help their business. I set goals for my business realizing that if I want it done right, then I must put in the time and do it. Yes, I do hire people for certain tasks like taxes. Its important to know what your best at yourself and hire somebody in your weaker areas. Sorry I haven't read the book, but will try to get it. It sure has an interesting title, but I never judge a book by its title.

I do work internationally and I have to meet the commitments under the Contracts signed. So, I have to have my work plans well laid out and organized. The way I do is to have a business plan outlining all the steps and the actions I have to take to be in line with the requirementsa of the Contracts.
