Our life is moving more and more into the digital direction. My once pretty little notebook full of “Big Lists” and sticky notes just wasn’t cutting it anymore. I found myself having too many plates spinning and not enough time to write out every little thing that needed to get done. And so that is where TRELLO comes in! We were introduced to Trello several months ago and we have been falling in love with it ever since! This free online resource isn’t just for creatives or business owners… it’s for ANYONE!

After blogging about our trello experience a few weeks ago, we had a lot of questions about it and so we filmed a video blog that will hopefully give you a better picture of how we manage our business life and our to-do list!!! ENJOY and share it if you know a friend could benefit from it!!!

    Ohmygosh! This is going to be a lifesaver and a game changer for me! I’ve been getting so overwhelmed lately, and I’ve decided to bring on a part-time assistant but I’ve been struggling with how to communicate tasks and workflow. This is going to be perfect!

  13. Tina reply

    I’ve been using Trello for awhile now but you made me want to utilize even more features I didn’t know about, like the checklists and percentage of tasks completed! Do you happen to have anywhere on your site what your workflow checklist is for engagement shoots and emails? Your wedding and album ones are so helpful!!

  14. Laura reply

    Oh yay! I love this! I can’t wait to start using it! I was getting an idea of your tasks, and who does what, cause my husband is joining my business this year and I need to designate tasks to him. This is so perfect! One question though, I didn’t see “edit wedding Photos” on the lists…just culling and editing some for the blog etc. Just curious why editing wasn’t on there.? Thanks so much for this video! You are such a blessing to me! I can’t wait for the webinar on Thursday! God bless you!!! :)

    THIS! Thank you Katelyn! This is exactly what I need! I am a huge checkbox person – I love making check boxes and marking when things are done. The problem is, I then have a million different little papers everywhere with my lists. So this will certainly keep me organized and in one place. Thank you for sharing!
