Just writing down your hours isn't enough to help you make decisions about your business. You need the 10,000-foot view: How regularly do I work really? Which days do I work best? Where are my hidden time sinks? Which of my clients are the least profitable? Freckle helps you find out, with its holistic, info-packed project overviews, powerful reporting features, and the mighty Pulse.
Your true hourly rate is a fraction of what you quote, and there's one reason: Overhead. It's the hippopotamus in the roomvery slippery.
