Increase Profit with Strategic Time Tracking


3 Hours of Accelerated, Industry-Specific Education


If you are an expert designer, you should get paid like one.

Whether you bill lump sum, fixed fee, or hourly, strategically tracking your time will allow for better estimates and increase your cash flow. The right time tracking methods are going to guarantee that all of the time spent on billable jobs is invoiced to your client.

Time tracking is about so much more than the hours billed—though those are incredibly important. Tired of working crazy hours and not seeing the results in your bank account? Or just ready to refine and take your numbers to a new level? The systems I teach can be implemented immediately. Interested? Sign up for LuAnn’s updates and early bird pricing!
