Being a business of one can present unique challenges. We are forced to handle aspects of business well outside our area of expertise. Only a few years ago, a freelancer or entrepreneur was limited to using a spreadsheet or accounting software, sending handmade invoices to clients from M$ word. Time tracking, accounts receivable, and bids were all separate and manually managed.
I don’t like doing things manually, especially things like accounting. I am a marketer, a project manager, a strategist…a numbers guy, i am not.
Enter FreshBooks(yeah referral link;). The Web 2.0 answer to my asking. Invoices, Time Tracking, Accept Payments, Reporting features. I just started using it, but so far, it rocks.
