Since I started freelancing earlier this year, my most valuable metric has been how much runway I have left (or "how long before I need to get a real job").
I use FreeAgent for all my finances. It’s a great tool, but it’s more about showing you your balance sheets and capital assets rather than the bigger picture.
So, I looked into forecasting software and found the likes of Float and Dryrun both of which look great... for large companies. I felt like I needed an accounting department just to get any value from them.
It's for this reason that I'm very happy to announce my latest project: Forecast.
Forecast is a bullshit-free forecasting service for freelancers. It’s built on one key principle: no additional input from you is required.
To me, being a freelancer is all about the flexibility and the freedom to work on the things you enjoy. You should be too busy working on your projects or having fun outside of work, not babysitting another finance system. Once you've connected your FreeAgent account, that's it! It just works.
