After years of playing around with an Outlook calendar, spiral-bound calendar, emails and text messages, I have finally entered the 21st century with my new online scheduling program. The feature is free and provides a link for my students to schedule future lessons. When it is set, I receive an email confirmation and it shows up as busy for other students who are scheduling lessons. I have to say that as much as it is genius, I am starting to feel not so genius about how long it took me to find this thing and start to use it. I first thought about it when I booked a hair appointment with a similar application. It now has me thinking that my hairdresser might have a few more tricks up his sleeve. Maybe I should go online and schedule another appointment… In the meantime, if you have any tips or tricks for upgrading an equine-related business with clever things like this online scheduling, please share it in a comment below!
