We’ve all heard the adage “time is money.” It’s never more true than when you’re a freelancer paid hourly. Not only does the number of hours you work directly correspond with how much you’re paid, you’re also the only one tracking those hours. You don’t have a boss to tally up your timesheets or a payroll department to calculate your paychecks. It’s up to you to carefully manage your time and make sure you get paid for every second worked.
To do this, you could use the old pen-and-paper method, but that method leaves room for human error. Even a small mistake can cost hundreds if not thousands of dollars over the course of time. Knowing this, many freelancers choose to automate their time tracking using time tracking apps designed to track better, faster, and more accurately. Here are a few of our favorites.
