The Frugal Entrepreneur: Blog owner Adam Gottlieb was inspired by his father’s entrepreneurial pursuits to create “a place where other frugal entrepreneurs and small business owners could find the small business tips, tools, and resources they need to help them run their businesses, and devote those long, frustrating hours of searching towards other, more productive endeavors.”
Tool To Try:
Freshbooks: The thrill of getting your first clients can be great – but it gets even better when they pay you. Freshbooks not only allows you to create and send professional-looking invoices (to send via email or snail mail) it connects directly to PayPal and has an add-on for Mailchimp and Google Apps. It’s free up to the first 3 clients, the next level up which offers unlimited invoices for up to 25 clients is 19.95/month. Another cool feature – when you send an invoice online you can see the last time it was viewed by your customer.
