Part 1: Business Organization
Are you constantly forgetting to send your music on time? Does opening your email give you anxiety? Do you miss out on bookings because the requests from producers got lost amongst your inbox clutter? Then this is the class for you. Drawing on nearly 15 years of administrative assistant experience, Dolly Debutante currently works as a freelance office manager for her fellow artists & small businesses. Learn her tried and true tips and tricks for keeping your email organized so that you can be the best business-minded performer you can be.

Learning Objectives
Class participants will leave knowing:
- Tips & tools to reduce email clutter
- How to prioritize responding on time
- Skills on keeping email inbox organized
- How to use email to practice professionalism & maximize bookings
"As someone who detests being on the computer (except Dlisted, there's always time for that), I'm always loathe to deal with emails... That's when Peekaboo Pointe suggested I call up Dolly! "She is gonna make your life a lot better, trust me" is what Peekie said to me. And, did she ever! In a short time Dolly Debutante hauled out all my inbox garbage, arranged things neatly in folders so they were easy to find, tracked down important financial emails and, overall, took a load of stress off my shoulders. Perhaps for some people this is merely a task that is inconvenient at best, but for some of us it all becomes unmanageable and overwhelming. Just one more thing to deal with in an already too-busy schedule! When she was done, I was so happy I found myself handing over gifts, as well as cash: "Girrrrl, take this vintage nightie, have these feather fans!!" There's an art to organization and Dolly is an incredible artist."

Part Two: Closet and Costume Organization
Dealing with a recent life change like a new job, move, or breakup? Or maybe you simply have too much stuff and don’t know where to start? Let Dolly guide you through what to keep, what to toss, and what to do with it all once you decide.
Learning Objectives:
Class participants will leave with confidence, knowing:
- How to decide what to keep & what to toss - The emotional benefits of decluttering and letting go - How to make a place for everything

“Dolly's closet cleaning services are incredible because of her positive energy and focus. She had me make smart decisions quickly by helping me recognize what I value most and that letting go is easy and important. I cannot recommend her highly enough and I can't wait to bring her back in to do my costume closet next.”-Boo Bess
“What do you do when you've decided to move after being in the same home for 10 years? You hire Dolly! The daunting task of going through 10 years worth of stuff will paralyze even the most ambitious organizer... and that's where Dolly comes in. Not only does she offer the physical support you need to purge belongings (dealing with the dust bunnies and all), but what's more important and invaluable is the emotional support she offers. She helped me organize the items I wanted to keep, and was instrumental in making my move as smooth as possible!”-Varla Velour
"My closet was transformed in just a few hours! I now know that anything I pull out of my closet is something I love that fits me perfectly. I even got some cash back by selling some things on Ebay. I highly recommend having Dolly re-vamp your closet!”-Nina La Voix
