Nik Cree started the web development agency, Positive Business Online, to get away from the 14 hour days that consumed his life in the finance industry. He wanted to build a profitable business where he could work on interesting projects with great people. And most importantly spend more time with his family.
While growing his agency, Nik suffered a problem most agencies face. He was guessing at how much time a project would take, and billing his customers based off estimates. This is a dangerous game for any agency to play. That's when he decided to look for a time tracking tool. He wanted to make sure that he was billing his customers at prices which would make his agency profitable.
After tracking how much time projects take, he realized he needed to increase his prices by 30% in order to maintain the level of profitability needed to maintain his lifestyle!
