It’s the chore on everyone’s to-do list, but somehow we never get around to it: Going paperless.
Whether you’ve been meaning to start moving your household documents to the cloud, or you want to start scanning an automating the paperwork related to your very small business or home office, now is the time!
Every January, I hear so many of my self-employed friends complain about having to dig through receipts and get their records in order before tax time.
So let’s get this done.
Over the years, I’ve figured out ways to make going paperless easier and less intimidating.
We’ll talk about how to tackle a little at a time so you don’t get completely overwhelmed at this big task in front of you.
We’ll figure out what systems will work best for you, and how to put them in place.
I’ll show you how to handle ordinary household documents, like:
House and car records
Health and medical records
Boats, RVs and other toys
Kids and school records
Family records like old family photos
And we’ll work on small business records. For this, we’ll dive into:
Scanning business documents and forms that you use over and over
Tracking receipts and expenses
Deciding when to upgrade to a full accounting system like Quickbooks
Whether you’re going paperless for your home, office, or both, we’ll pay special attention to:
Password and internet security
Organizing documents so they’re easy to find
Keeping systems in place that will change how you work going forward.
I made this class for all of you who are still struggling with how to go paperless without losing control of all your important records. Let’s go!
Who this course is for:
- Self-employed people and small business owners, plus anyone who runs a household.
I'm the New York Times bestselling author of over a dozen books, including The Drunken Botanist, Wicked Plants, and Girl Waits with Gun. I've been a full-time author for twenty years, and in that time my books have sold over a million copies worldwide and been translated into 17 languages.
I love talking to writers and artists, and bonding over the creative process. I started teaching so that I can inspire others to take the leap.
I believe that writing, drawing, and painting are all teachable skills. Forget about talent--it doesn't exist, and you don't need it. With some quality instruction and lots of practice, any of us can make meaningful, honest, and unique art and literature.
When I'm not writing or traveling on book tour, I'm painting and drawing in ink, watercolor, gouache, and oil. Come find me on my website or on Instagram to stay connected.
