Last week, I posted an article announcing the FreshBooks 1 year free subscription giveaway. After receiving a great amount of wonderful responses to the contest topics, the winner was randomly selected and contacted.
And the Winner is…
Mattias Gunnerås! Mattias is a developer who works for Poke London, where he does (and I quote) “all sorts of web related goodness”.
Mattias also has an excellent blog called bother no more where he discusses mostly internet stuff as it relates to web development. Check him out and offer him some congratulations!
Here’s Mattias’s comment on the FreshBooks giveaway:
“My invaluable tool is so simple: pad and a pencil. The last thing I do In the afternoon is to scribble down what I need to do the next day, and the first thing I do In the morning is to review that list and turn it into a task list for the day. I love the simplicity of this process and it’s such a quick thing to do.”
Thank you to everyone that participated. There were a total of 32 wonderful comments (including one comment from me) on time-tracking tips, tools that help make workflow processes more efficient, and anecdotes on client experiences. I will summarize the results on another article and contact the folks that participated to see if they’d like to contribute to the follow-up article.
Thank you FreshBooks!
Last but not least, thank you to the awesome folks at FreshBooks for providing us small, independent professionals a wonderful tool to help manage our invoicing and time-tracking. It seems like every day I find a cool feature that makes me say, “Oh wow” – like the Snail Mail feature that they offer where they send out your invoice for you to your client, saving you time from taking a trip to the post office!
For those interested in trying out FreshBooks, you can sign up for free for up to three clients (so it’s perfect for those just starting out).
