Time and Billing doesn’t have to hurt

Money

No one likes to fill out their time sheets. No one likes to do their invoicing at the end of the month.

Yet, everyone likes a paycheck, no?

Then, why are time and billing processes so painful? Why are we so opposed to logging our time, or asking out clients for money? It’s all in the mindset. à

Many of us are uncomfortable with the idea of reporting to someone else. Logging out time feels like an evaluation, a justification of our work. The process is a little different for invoicing our clients: we often feel uncomfortable sending a big bill to a client, as our work was not worth the amount printed at the bottom of the page. When it comes to billing, there is a component of self-confidence that is touched.

Let’s say it together: we’re worth the money!

We’re worth the money our clients pay us. If we are proud of the work we’ve done, we should be proud of the invoice that comes with it! If we feel that we’ve done a good week of work, we should feel good about filling out our timesheet!

Make time and billing easier

Timesheets and billing can be made easier with the right system for our needs. Whether it’s a mobile app or a desktop system, connecting the work we’ve done automatically to the clients we bill will not only save time, but also grief at the end of the month.
