I know, what a title.
Why’s the end of the year great? Holidays, decorations, food, family, gift giving, smiles, lots of fudge and tea.
Why’s the end of the year terrible? I’m a small business owner (outside of the blog) so that means figure out expenses, organize 1099s to freelancers we have to send out, know if I have to spend, know if I have to save and start organizing my taxes. And add up lots and lots of receipts. And cry. And continue adding up lots more receipts.
First, let me tell you a little bit about my other business besides this sweet little Internet home. I don’t post much about work because I worry it causes confusion with my readers. There’s recipes, gardening and then what happens when I post a wild fashion video? Does that confuse readers? Do readers like that? Can you just tell me in the comments if you’d like to see more work that I create, including behind the scenes stuff? I hope you say yes as I’d love to start posting more, but I totally understand if you aren’t into it either.
I work with my partner Matthew in a creative team. We direct films for fashion brands, advertising, music videos and lots of online spots. Our work has substantially grown in the past few years with new clients, bigger budgets and lots more hands in the cookie jar. For one of our most recent jobs there was over 50 people on set. With that many people involved, you can only imagine all the contracts and invoices that were involved. Thankfully we have an agent that takes care most of that, but we still have to take care of all of our own paperwork.
I love labels, I love labeling everything. If you look in my closet you’ll see shoe boxes are labeled. In our freezer, all the garden veggies are labeled. So it probably comes as no surprise then that my label writer helps me stay organized with our business too. Because gosh.. there’s alot of paperwork that we have to file.
