When I first got laid off from my full time job I panicked. That is, until someone convinced me that freelancing could be a very lucrative business for me. This career path has allowed me to build skills I would have never learned otherwise. I’ve also managed to double the salary that I was making at my full-time job.
So what’s the catch?
The burnout rate is high and rapidly growing. If you don’t have stellar organizational skills and a business strategy (because this is your business), it’s easy to lose control over your budding empire. Contracts will be lost, you’ll damage your reputation and soon you will stop booking jobs altogether.
Here’s the good news!
There's tons of apps perfect for freelancers
These apps will become the catalyst to your next level. Lucky for you, I love sharing! I swear by these six apps and I think you should too.
The worst thing you can do as a freelancer is to forget to invoice your clients. It happens to the best of us. Wave Accounting allows you to easily and accurately manage all of your invoicing and payments. It also connects to your checking or savings account and your PayPal. You can also access this on all of your devices. The best part is that once the invoice is entered it will send automatic updates to you and your clients when the invoice is overdue.
