    This is a downloadable checklist to help guide you through the Masterclass, "How To Keep Your Fashion Business On Track".

    Running a business is hard, and the key to keeping any business on track is organisation. One element of this organisation is, for instance, having a calendar to tell you when your taxes are due, or the date of trade shows you will be attending, or maybe a weekly planner to note individual tasks and upcoming meetings. These to-do lists are your glaring accountability.

    For this Masterclass, we focus on all you need to grow and scale - whatever that looks like for your business. A handy checklist is ideal when specific timelines are required, and you have to pull in those organisational and time management skills. We recommend you refer back to this checklist every six months to ensure that nothing is slipping through the net of your conflicting priorities and demands.

    So, head below to download the checklist. Pin this up somewhere noticeable to remind you, and get excited rather than overwhelmed by these tasks.
