Guest Post: contributed by Jennifer Hazen of What a Business!
Since the Northeast Blackout of 2003, I’ve been using a stationary store bought telephone address book to record and store vital business information, as an emergency backup. Because an address book is alphabetized, unlike a journal or traditional notebook, information can be easily organized from A to Z. A mini address book (5” x 3” approx.) with lined pages, is an ideal low tech and portable item for making notes.
- for making notes like comparison shopping a big ticket item. Write it under ‘C’ for computer, for example.
- as a place for all of your brainstorming ‘ideas’ for your business. Use a larger format sized book for this one.
- Or as an organized list of clients gift ideas for Christmas, by last name.
