With the new year, I'm thinking a need to get some better systems in place with regards to running my own interaction design business. Some questions for those who are consultants/freelance/solo practitioners:
- assuming you are on a long-term job, what percentage of your available working hours are billable? What is a good target? (I work from home and I always seem to spend some of my working hours doing laundry, etc.)
- what software do you use to track your hours?
- what software do you use to bill your clients and keep track of paid and unpaid bills?
- do you bill for time spent tracking hours and billing?
