How to use this template
- Open the Template.
- Make a copy of the document. (File, Make a copy)
- Input any clients you have worked with, including those you did not charge. It helps to have a full tracking of how many hours you have worked.
- Track your expenses thoroughly and accurately. Record any expenses made for your clients, marketing, and self care. Use minus sign for expenses, leave it neutral for profits. Your total earnings, hours spent, and average rate will total in the last row.
If you are pursuing your Konmari™ Consulting journey as a serious part or full time business, consider creating an LLC (for those in the U.S.), separate bank account, and more formal bookkeeping strategy using Quickbooks or ANDCO. By the way, ANDCO handle contracts, invoicing, and payments beautifully. I like this nice guide on how ANDCO works. I hope this sparks joy for you!
