so, while it is still today, i can report on what i did get done.Business
We have taken over the holistic health center now, and it is in terrible disarray. There is a lot more to do--goodness knows how long the list really is--but as for now, the biggest things to sort out is who is coming and going where. There are multiple practitioners who rent on an hourly, half-day, daily, or weekly basis. There are different practitioners who work the on-site business on various days. And there is no contact list.
So, today, I managed to compile a contact list for the most part organized by In-House and On-site practitioners. In-house is sub-organized by time; on-site by the client that they service.
I also completed a third-party vendor contact list and an on-site client list. the on-site client list document includes two tables--one for regular clients and one for one-time clients. Some of the one-time clients repeat each year or every other year--for example, the university hires our massage therapists to come around during exam time.
I've also managed to complete the basic procedure manual for the receptionists. There is more to come on this such as FAQ about the business, the individual therapists, and so on; and then our personal manuals on how various things are managed such as pricing lists for the business, etc; but for the most part, the basics are neatly housed in both computer form, thumb drive as a back up, and a print copy.
This, then, allowed me to declutter those papers that no longer make sense in the binders (this business is a mess, i can't even tell you--everything hand-done, things forgotten, etc), kept the things that i have a question about and asked the relevant persons to follow up, and then put the new print copies in the binder for future reference.
As far as the space for the business goes, i do think i'll have to institute a group-wide declutter of the space and talk about proper organization. Each person has "moved in" to their room, and most of them have a lot of clutter. So, we will have to work on that.
Beyond that, there are still a number of things to organize--the flood that happened in January has insurance-covered work happening over the next 4 weeks and we have to follow up with when and which furnishings are going to be replaced. I still need to work on the accounting aspects to make sure that those are clear and easy to read (though I have an appointment with the accountant on the 23rd, so i'm arranging child care and then we will go forward from there with that aspect). I have to come up with certain procedures for the business such as Gift Vouchers and the like.
Still a long list. It will extend long beyond April. Home
Because we came over with so little, we really don't have all that much to worry about. I do need to go through our financials since we arrived--essentially organizing receipts and checking them against our books. Right now, i just have them all compiled in one envelope, and i'd like to get them properly categorized, double checked with our accounts, and then properly stored.
Our new bed arrived today--the installation team comes this evening around 6 to set it up for us. This means that i need to find a home for our air mattress and the bedding that goes with it, as the air mattress is a queen and the bed is a king. I've already washed the sheets for the new bed so that we can sleep in it tonight; tomorrow, i'm going to get the mattress protector that i found at the organic shop! It's wool. 100% NZ wool in fact. LOL our whole bed is organic, sustainable, biodegradable and recyclable (the springs in the mattress).
I also need to find jars for our dry goods. I don't use a lot of jarred food and such, so i can't just recycle. I'm looking for things that others are recycling on freecycle or trademe (NZ's craigs list cum ebay). Hopefully, i can find a lot of affordable glass jars. i do want to organize my cupboards and find adequate storage for the dry goods!
So, that's me for today. Better fold the laundry and prep for the installation team!
