Business Resources for Face Painters Introduction – the blog you've all been waiting for!
You have spent a small fortune on the best quality products. You have spent countless hours improving your skills, getting your name out there, and painting on the job. You keep your kit clean, turn up on time and maintain high levels of good customer service. For all intents and purposes you are a truly professional face painter. Here comes the but...
How much time do you spend keeping your paperwork in order?
You are not 'just' a face painter (so please, never listen to anyone who says that to you, including other painters!) You are a business owner. You are self employed with all that that implies: particularly the ball and chain of filing your self assessments.
What if there was a way to simplify it all? To make you accountable for all of the extra 'unseen' time you put in to your business and help you adjust your pricing to fairly reflect this?
Well, you are in luck! I have created a series of resources specifically catered for face painters that will help you to get your business organised and well prepared for any audits, tax filing, personal reviews and future projections. They will be released one at a time through this new series of business blogs here on The Face Painting Shop website!
What are the benefits of good record keeping?
I'll leave it there as I'm sure you get the picture and are keen to crack on with the first face painters resource document!
What software do I need to use this document?
Spreadsheets will be provided in Open Office Calc format and Microsoft Excel. Open Office is FREE software that anybody can download onto their computers. It is easy to use and my preferred software for this type of work. There is also no reason why you shouldn't be able to open these files in google docs.
What resources will be provided in the series?
The main spreadsheets that will save your life are as follows:
The business blog series will likely be on going and organic based on responses.
Please give us feedback on this series!
If this is something you find useful, or there are things you don't understand, please let us know! I am more than happy to do some Live Q&A sessions in our Facebook group to walk you through each of the resources and answer any questions you may have, but I need to know if this is something you want, first!
It have taken me a very long time to manually enter every single bit of info and formulas into these sheets so you don't have to. Although I don't feel like I should have to say it: please respect this further by crediting the work if you pass it on, and not circulating it yourself for a profit. Copyright belongs to Rachel (Geordie Face Painter), and has been shared for the benefit of the face and body painting industry .
Without further ado, your first Face Painter Resource is now available!
The first spreadsheet is the all important Time Sheet! Get into the habit of entering any hours relating to the running of your business. You will find a lot of useful information to help you get started with organising your business setup and records!
