Keeping organized as a professional photographer {Family Portrait Photographer, San Jose, CA}

Since I started my business I have used different mix of softwares and systems for scheduling, invoicing, keeping track of “to-dos”, etc. About a year ago I came across 17hats and the idea behind it hit me as nothing but awesome! Since then I found other similar systems for small businesses, some less expensive then others. Some looked way too complicated for me.

So far I really like what I’ve seen while setting the account with 17 hats. It is a one person system, so if you have more people to communicate with within your business then this is not for you. Having accounts almost everywhere to keep up with everything that’s going on within my business makes the whole process of running it not a pleasant experience. This tool seems to be really awesome and I am very excited I finally decided to go with it.

It’s going to take some time to move all my contacts, projects and events and what not but after I’m done with it I feel like I’m going to be way more productive and the whole system of will be way more pleasant. Within the last two days of trying it I feel like I have done more organizing then I have done through the entire year 😉

For example with a few clicks I have synchronized my google calendar with the software.


I was able to do the same with several other accounts. I love how user friendly and intuitive this software is.

I’m still during the 15 day free trial and I think this software should have this trying period a little longer.

Also 17 Hats did not pay me for this blog post, I just had to write about one SYSTEM or one TOOL I’m going to introduce into my life for  15 Day Blog Challenge (and this is Day 9). But if you sign up with this link, I’ll get a referral bonus, so definitely do that if you found this post useful 🙂
