Book Your Band-The Calendar
Your tools should include a fold out 16 month calendar with big blocks to write in. I find these yearly in dollar and discount stores. Colored pencils work great when entering data in your calendar- maybe green (a money color) could denote scheduled shows, maybe blue (a calming hue) could mark special enjoyable activities or mini vacations. Don’t forget to list birthdays and anniversaries and family events. Even if a tour schedule permits you from attending a special function, a timely card will show you care and will work to establish balance between work and family.
Google calendar is also really helpful if you’re working with several other people to book your band. However, I do prefer to transfer info from the goggle calendar to a physical calendar.
