Tracking Your Time

OfficeTimeAs a small business owner, I look for ways to be more efficient. I tried several time tracking applications until I found the right fit: OfficeTime. I wanted to share this gem, since it’s been eye opening and has assisted me in getting a good picture of where I really spend my time. It provides an accurate, unbiased view, includes great features, and best of all, it is easy to use.

I use my app on my PC because that is where I do most of my business, but OfficeTime is available for use on Mac, PC, iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch. The company offers a free trial, and the app takes about a minute to download. A quick two minute tutorial gets you started.

Top reasons I like this app:

  • Multiple projects – If you are like me, you are working more than one project at a time, and OfficeTime allows you to quickly move time tracking from one project to the next.
  • Invoices – You can export files and reports in many formats (Excel or other) and create your own custom templates to suit your needs, or your clients’ needs.
  • Visual Picture – A simple pie chart with associated percentages (as shown above) shows you which projects consume most of your time.
  • Affordable – At this time, the one-time cost is $47, with no monthly fees.
  • Honest – One of my favorite features is that OfficeTime keeps track of when you are “away,” or not using the keyboard. Therefore, when you walk away to do something and you come back, the following screen appears to remind you that what you have been doing may not be associated with the project you are timing.

So, whether you are working billable hours, writing for pleasure, supporting non-profits, tracking your exercise program, all of the above, or simply want to see how you are using your valuable time, I highly recommend OfficeTime. It’s helped me be more productive with my 1440 minutes a day, and who doesn’t need more time?

Guest Post – Days End Farm Horse Rescue

Please welcome Maryland Horse Council (MHC) Youth Correspondent, Holden Rafey, and her guest post on Days End Farm Horse Rescue (DEFHR).

Time off from school can be time spent with horses, though riding is only one of the ways to get your horse fix. Did you know you can learn about rescue horses and help with their care in spring break and summer programs? [Read more…]

Taking Chances

AIE_VeteranWritingServices (1)It’s been three years since a Navy friend asked me if I was interested in applying for the Veteran Women Igniting the Spirit of Entrepreneurship (V-WISE) program.  At the time I thought:

“Entrepreneur? Doesn’t that mean someone who wants to get rich?”

Psychological Benefits of Writing

(Source: https://c2.staticflickr.com/4/3143/2911715015_752a3a47fc_b.jpg)Today’s guest post is brought to you by Lucy Adams of BuzzEssay.com.

What comes to your mind when you hear the word “writer?” Many of us are used to thinking of a strange hermit with randomly scattered sheets of paper bent over a table selflessly working on the next great novel.

But “writer” and “writing” have different meanings. To write means to express thoughts on paper, and that makes almost all of us writers – even if we do not have the gift of writing. [Read more…]
