Independent Consultant Templates
Would love to see common templates for proposals, hours tracking, project management, invoicing, etc.
Are there any websites recommended for recommended consultation by industry?
Specifically, if you are consulting in more than one industry, and in various states, it would be great to have a reference tool for the "ballpark" tool for pricing the service.
Regarding invoicing, I have been using FreshBooks for 7 years, and it is user friendly and includes all the functionality that I need (includes hours tracking, a function I have not used).
And your question on project management templates is a good one, as I prepare a plan for each engagement, and hope to leverage past assignments to make this task easier.
Yes, you should now be able to upload the following document types: Adobe PDFs, Word Documents, Excel Documents, and PowerPoint Presentations.
