FreshBooks – Helping Mompreneurs succeed at business

**This post contains sponsored content and affiliate links, I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking on my links**

Being a Stay-At-Home Mom money can be tight, being a single income family in 2018 can be hard financial. Running a home based business is something many women are doing.  Not only to help contribute to their family but also to develop new skills, explore a passion, or just even do something for themselves outside of being a Mom.

I personally work from home as an administrative specialist for several clients as well as run a successful blog.  One tool I couldn’t live without out in my business is FreshBooks. This is a cloud-based accounting software features include time tracking for projects, invoicing and expenses.

“FreshBooks self-employed accounting software makes working for yourself painless by making your accounting a breeze. Spend less time on accounting and you’ll have more time to follow your passion.”

Freshbooks New Feature

Proposals are a new feature to Freshbooks and its something I am personally very excited about. FreshBooks Estimates Page now allows you to provide proposals to clients quickly and easily.  This is a great way to follow up after a meeting with a new or existing client. Being able to prepare a proposal email it, then follow up all on one dashboard. This will help you save time and make sure you are getting those jobs. The Proposals feature is only available to those on Plus and Premium plans.

Features include:

  • Your company logo
  • Custom sections like Overview, Scope of Work and Timeline
  • Pricing (using the same format as Estimates and Invoices)
  • Notes
  • Terms


The New Proposal feature is just another way that FreshBooks is working to create accounting that is simple, fast and painless.

FreshBooks offers a 30day no credit card required free trial that I would highly recommend.

    The layout is great and easy to read. It’s nice to have all information in one spot. The more organization you have the easier accounting is and this looks like an easy to follow organizational system.

    Oh wow! This is great and it seems so simple. I hate the accounting part of running a business. This seems like it’s a no brainer for me!

    I do love a point and click – enter the number here type programs. I am so not good at book keeping.
