Welcome to CSR Nation
Hi friends! I recently published a quick interview I did with Alexa Goldman, court reporter behind The Stylish Stenographer, on my blog. She also creates planners specifically geared toward court reporters, so it was a really cool experience to chat with her about that!
On that note, I'm curious about your time-saving and organization strategies. Personally, I write EVERYTHING down and am already shopping around for my 2018 planner (because I'm crazy). So, how do you keep everything organized and manage your time?
I just saw this when you posted about what to read. This sounds really interesting. I would love to see what her planner has to help court reporters!!! That is an awesome idea. I use DepoBooks. That is the most important thing that I use every day. I don't know what I did without them!
That's awesome! It's so cool that there are planners and stuff out these specifically for you guys. Probably makes things a lot easier. :) I'm actually pumped -- I'm getting a standard (non-CR) planner from Alexa herself! Can't wait to see her product in person.
I actually bought myself a planner (for the first time ever!) a few weeks ago to help keep track as I've gotten busier with proofreading. I've not utilized it much yet, but I'm looking forward to figuring out how to make it work for me. Up until now, I've just relied on making notes for myself on my cell phone and emailing myself reminders, which is not the most efficient thing when you're trying to juggle two full-time jobs.
Great interview, btw! :)
Thank you! Despite preferring phones/computers for just about everything else, I cannot keep a calendar or planner electronically. I don't know why! I write client due dates in two places in a physical planner and have a dry erase calendar in my kitchen. I'm a planner freak and watch "plan with me" videos on YouTube for hours at a time. It's a problem! lol
