Having been in direct sales for 30 years and blogging since 2013, I have found most planners on the market cover either direct sales OR blogging well and none cover crafters’ needs. And none have ever been covered in one planner… until now.
I initially created this planner for my personal use. It worked so well at fulfilling my needs that I decided to make it available to my fellow direct sales, crafting and blogging friends.
At a glance, see what parties you have scheduled, where you are in coaching your hostess for a successful event, see your income and expenses, plan your blog posting, stay current on your product reviews and sponsored posts, see what orders you have outstanding for your handmade goods and so much more! Once you start using the tools included in this tracker, you will wonder how you ever were successful and organized without it!
This downloadable planner has one copy for each type of page. You can print off just the pages that meet your needs AND you can print off as many copies needed of the pages that you DO use. Why waste your ink on pages that you won’t use?
The expense pages are set up in the same categories that the IRS uses on the Schedule C form, which any direct sales consultant, as an independent contractor, should file to deduct their business expenses from their gross income. Obviously, you will want to hang onto all your receipts as well, but if you log your expenses as you incur them, you’ll be ahead of the game when tax season comes. Recommendation: Put your receipts into manila envelopes labeled with the same categories as the expense forms. Please note: I am NOT a tax accountant. If you’re unsure whether you should file a Schedule C with your tax return, please consult your tax professional. Typically, if you receive a 1099 from your company, you are an independent contractor.
How to use this file: Print the forms out, hole-punch them and put them in a 3-ring binder. This is the most convenient way, since you can add copies of the forms as you need them. Of course, you can always take the pages you need somewhere like Staples or Kinko’s and have them copy and bind them. Whatever works for you!
So dig into the file and start exploring and discovering what works best for you! The calendar pages are dated for 2020 so you can jump in now!
PLEASE NOTE: There will be TWO zipped files to download once you’ve checked out. Please be sure to download both and save them on your computer and unzip them to access all the pages. Pages are in .pdf format. You will unlimited download access for 180 days from date of purchase. Because this is a digital product, there are no returns or refunds.
I would love to hear from you! Let me know what you like, what you don’t like, what you would change, what you would like to add. I am open to feedback. My goal is to make this planner as intuitive as possible!
Make this the best year ever!
