Online Bookkeeping and Invoicing

There was a weird problem with iTunes where many of you downloaded a file that was silent.  I thought the best thing to do, was to repost the file and give it a whole new record, so iTunes would look at it as a whole new podcast.  This way, if you are subscribed, you will get it as a new episode.  Upside is the people with a bad file get one that works.  Downside is that the people who did not have a problem, will be getting a duplicate.  To those people I sincerely appologize.

InvoiceIn this episode of the StartupDaddy podcast I talk with Sunir Shah, the Chief Handshaker at Freshbooks is an online invoicing tool that allows you to track your time, and send and manage invoices online.

After a long pause between podcast episodes, I am back with this conversation with Sunir.  I do not have any relationship with Freshbooks, I just think they have a great product that I wanted to share with you.  Their service allows you to create professional looking invoices that you can send on or offline, to your clients.

Your clients can pay you by credit card or paypal, and have an interface that allows them to log in and check their balance with you at any time.  It is a big time saver, and they use a pricing model that scales as you grow your business.

Go to the FreshBooks website for more information, to take a product tour or sign up for the service.

I also talk about a project of mine, RecallNewsletter,com  is a site I developed that helps you keep up with recall news and alerts, from all of the different government agencies that issue recalls.
