Bill for all your time

With so few billable hours, you need to ensure that you bill for all of your time and disbursements, and that nothing slips through the cracks.

Any forgotten time is a direct hit on your profit. To survive on your own, you need to keep a real-time record of everything you do on a client's matter. Phone calls. Emails drafted and sent. Photocopies made. All time spent on a matter. And if you leave your time- recording to the end of the month, you're bound to forget some of the things you did. You can capture time in a billing system, or simply make notes on Excel, Word, or Notepad.
