Tracking time is a challenge for many small businesses. My New Year’s resolution this year is to track Simplified time as diligently as I do for our clients’ projects. If you’re a small business owner, you know far too well how an hour can swiftly jump to five hours while working on a passion project for your own business. You get really excited and pull an all-nighter, then take a nap and get right back to the grind for your clients without skipping a beat. Does this sound familiar? Tracking time can change this for you!
This type of work ethic, although very disciplined, can lead to burnout. So to avoid that productivity-suck, start tracking time you spend on your business as closely you do for your clients. This way, you can maximize the time allotted to each client, including yourself and also ensure to make time for yourself to balance it all out.
For Simplified, we’ve been utilizing Harvest for the last few months and it has been extraordinarily helpful with time management. I signed up for a 30-day free trial, unsure of what was in store for us, and ended up signing up because it was exactly what we needed. Quick and easy time management with detailed reporting and invoicing capabilities! If you sign up with our Harvest link, you’ll save $10 off you first month if you decide to sign up officially after you 30-day free trial. Plus, Simplified gets a credit for each referral who signs up.

The bad news is time flies. The good news is you’re the pilot.
