Freelancers can be called as 'solo warriors' and you know why. Apart from having the skills which yield all the business and money, freelancers have to do the extra tasks for which there are specialized professionals in companies. From doing the follow-ups for payment to marketing the services, he is an accountant as well as the marketing head of his/her own business.
You may wonder how some freelancers’ do everything single handed? Thanks to the brainy developers around the world, there are various applications available which come in handy for freelancers in reducing time and efforts of complicated tasks. Mentioned below are some of them.
There's a saying 'time is money' which is perfectly true for freelancers. The intense workload demands perfect management of time.
