Time keeps on slippin’ into the future

 Eileen Reppenhagen,  Certified
QuickBooks ProAdvisor


My favourite QuickBooks feature is the one that increases my bottom line and helps me make sure that time doesn’t just slip away. With 52 weeks in a year, we usually work 48-50 weeks, 5 or 6 days a week. Over a year, 8 working hours per day x 5 days a week x 48 weeks, would be 1,920 hours.

Problem: self-employment requires administration, so not all of those hours are billable. So what’s my plan? There are whole days with no billable hours while I prepare for major events or get stuck working on other the house. There are days when all I do is email or talk on the phone and nothing goes on the timesheet. Does this sound familiar?
