Simple. Easy. Love it!

I used Freshbooks original for my contracting services. As I started moving into seasonal work and started another company in a different field, I continued to use Freshbooks for invoicing clients because it was so simple. Things are more complex now and I'm trying to find a solution that works for me but right now, my wife and I have 3 separate companies and so to get the best use of it, I need 3 accounts, which I don't have so it's been interesting trying to use a single account. We have a Hypnotherapy practice, a Performance Mentoring service, and a Group Coaching and Mastermind program. It's the two of us and a team of VA's.

Recommendations to others considering FreshBooks

Stick to one business. My wife and I have one corporation that houses 3 companies. If you have different branches, you will need to use separate accounts to make it work properly with your branding.
