This is a project management tool that looks pretty awesome if you are working with clients directly. Lauren hooker of Elle & Co offers an in-depth look at how she uses 17 Hats to manage her client workflow.
Although this works best for managing a client directly and most Etsy sellers just sell a product and communicate inside the Etsy system, 17 Hats would work great if you sell design services or coaching through Etsy. This was this tool can be used for better communication between buyer and seller.
There is just something about pen, paper and checking off a list. So I created a free printable for you to use.
Easy and straight forward. Fill in the client’s name and the task to be completed.
One of the most important traits in any business is consistency. Put in the same amount of effort into every item you sell and not skip any step to get to the final product.
