Struggle capturing billable hours?

It’s the last week of January, so you know what that means…

Your time is due!

If you’ve got it all in and you’re feeling great about your numbers, way to start the year off strong.

If you’re dropping your head or outright cussing me, you probably fall into one of two categories:

  1. You always say you’ll do better but then you find yourself at the end of the month with hardly any hours written down and now you have to spend the next few days completely re-creating your month

  2. You have your time entered but you know you worked WAY more hours than is actually reflected and you’re annoyed that your billables don’t match your output

Well, I have good news.

In today’s Hustle & Flow episode, I’m going to help you tackle this problem head-on.

Even if you’ve tried to get in front of this issue a hundred times before, don’t give up!

Listen to the episode HERE and see if one of these solutions finally does the trick.

A month from now, you’ll be so thankful you listened!

Oh, and one last thing…

You are not your billables.

Don’t for two seconds allow billables (or other firm metrics) to be a measurement of your self-worth.

You’re amazing and have so much to offer the world just by being you.



P.S. Know of a friend or colleague who struggles with the billable hour? Please forward this episode. It just might be the solution they’ve been hoping for…
