“I use a spreadsheet dashboard to keep track of my billable hours!” (My Freelance Life 011)

Time is money – particularly when you freelance. In today’s episode, we explore how Andy keeps track of every single minute of every day, his billable hours and overall business goals – all with the help of a spreadsheet!

Andy has got a spreadsheet dashboard working for him – which helps him to see not only where his time is going – but also helps to show him his revenues at any given time of day, track his mini-goals he’s set up for himself and other interesting little stats like his highest earnings day of the week etc.

In this episode, we also talk about:

  • How to better manage your freelance income and expenses
  • Why you should keep your personal and business accounts separate
  • Mac or a PC? Andy reveals his choice for his machine upgrade!

As always we would love to hear your thoughts!
