Are you a creative person doing work on the side? Starting a small business? We can help. Here are some creative hustle downloads.

I’ve been running my own creative side hustle for more that 10 years. I do video production and web development. Today I want to share with you the Spreadsheet-apps I’ve developed to keep the financial side of things organized. This frees me up to focus on the fun and creative work.

Now, I know what you may be thinking. Spreadsheets?

No. Spreadsheet-apps. This is different. I’ve developed some powerful sheets, designed to run on the Google Sheets app. I think spreadsheets are cool. But what I’ve made is something that behaves a bit like a spreadsheet and a bit like desktop app.

Why use these?

Because if you can be more organized, you have more time to be creative.

Don’t like spreadsheets?

  1. Think again, reconsider, they’re more useful and cost-effective than you realize
  2. You don’t need to like (making) them, just use mine

HustleBooks Starter is a Spreadsheet-app (plus 5 minute explainer video) that helps you track the most important things when you’re getting a side hustle started: money in, money out, and client projects. Give this a try. You’ll likely find it’s all you need to get started, or all you ever need. No strings attached.

If you bill your clients by the hour, here’s a handy time sheet Spreadsheet-app that I’ve been using for, gosh, almost 10 years. Note: you have to be logged in to your Google Account or create a free account for these Spreadsheet-apps to work. It doesn’t take long to develop the very useful habit of tracking hours so you can bill those clients for as much money as possible…and have the documentation to back everything up.

HustleBooks Pro (not free)

Thanks for reading and best of luck out there with your side hustle or small business.
