How to Actually Get Stuff Done: Track Your Freelance Hours Effectively

When you're a creative biz owner, you're the marketing manager, VP of sales, CFO, head of customer service - you basically do it all. AND you have to do the creative work that you actually went in business to do! How do you get it all done and still have time to sleep and have a life? I'm here to show you how. 

The best hours tracking tool for freelancers

If you're a freelancer who works on an hourly basis, tracking your hours can be a major pain in the behind. I used to keep my hours in an notebook, then on an excel spreadsheet, then in the "Notes" app on my iPhone - and none of those methods were easy. I'd have a bunch of notes for "Two hours and 12.5 minutes," and then would have to manually figure out how much to invoice the client, taking up valuable time and energy.

Then I found the HoursTracker App and it changed my world!

This app is a must-have for freelancers and independent contractors. What do I love about it?

  • It allows you to punch in your hourly rate per job - so if you charge a different rate for different work, you can adjust it.
  • It not only clocks your hours, but also allows you to round up if you charge in increments - for example, rounding up to the nearest 15 minutes.
  • It easily allows you to see all the details of a job and how much you're owed - so much faster than doing it yourself. 
  • It keeps a record of the hours worked in a really user-friendly way.
