Sloppy finance practices can kill a business. Smart finance tools can find new profits.

What’s it going to be for you?

I love creativity. Record keeping and finances to me are in the same category as rats and roaches. Yuck. But I’ve also set a standard of living that requires more than just love and creativity to keep it all going, especially my current world. I run two companies and must maximize my time and resources. The only way I can do it is with efficient, easy help and resources.

I’ve used a lot of time tracking methods in my life including ink scribbles on my hand and some very complex computer programs. This software is the easiest, most flexible I’ve ever used. And you can try it for FREE for 30 days, no software to download and no credit card required. Beyond that they enhanced package options for different degrees of needs and team sizes.

FREE distance communication and collaboration software
And they have another cool software called Co-op, that allows work groups to coordinate projects and communicate at a distance completely free. I’ll be featuring this in a future FREE Biz Findz dedicated to collaboration resources.

Cost: FREE

Oddpodz review:
I am not a left-brained person and setting up my companies on Harvest was fast and intuitive. You can track by person or by task, monitor time, manage projects and then create easy invoices. This product is ideal for professional service providers. Even if you don’t run a business, they let you track time for one in the forever free program, you could track time sent on volunteer work or some hobby passion too.

As a bonus, the folks behind Harvest (Iridesco) sponsor the Harvest New Founders program, where they supply promising new businesses with free software, advice and an interview on our site to help spread the word, all in the spirit of supporting entrepreneurship.
