After years using pen and paper then a spreadsheet, I recently took the plunge and signed up for a trial of Harvest Time tracking software. I did view others but after a recent UGURUs course and BC Sandpile webinar, I liked the look of Harvest. Very simple to set up, you just add a project name, add some tasks as required then click start when you begin a piece of work and stop when you're done! Simples. The best bit about it is the ease of use and you can use it to invoice clients who pay on an hourly basis although I just use it to keep track of my time per project.
January - the first month of a new year and the time to create targets and resolutions - this year let's try to make them work and not end up being ones that are forgotten or have lost focus before week 3!

If you are going to start this year as you mean to go on then it is time to get serious and set out your aims. To help, we have produced the following suggestions to help you focus and launch in to 2013!
Last month we explained how we were using Google Apps for business and that we were using it for Email, contacts and our calendar. We have also created a 'Virtual Office' for one of our clients who are now also using it for email, calendar and contacts and we even provided several spcific training videos for them to set up their own email accounts, calendar details and contact information. We are now moving them into the Google Drive which will allow them easy sharing of documents and wanted to explain how we use Google Drive ourselves as freelance website designers.
