Short and simple, how do freelance artists keep track of their projects? What is your personal organizational system?
I keep track of things with Excel Documents and written lists. Not the most efficient, but I only do very minimal freelance work right now as I have a regular day job and school right now but eventually once I get my school squared away I'd like to "get serious" about this whole thing and start off on the right foot in terms of keeping things in order.
What is most important for you to keep track of, ie: Contact numbers, medium, price, size, due date, etc?
Any advice for folks looking to "be their own boss" relating to this topic so they don't get in over their head and become disorganized?
I'm curious to hear what everyone's system is so maybe I (and others who read this) can improve their own
