Freedom to freelance

How to run your business from anywhere

Intro

Why should I freelance on-the-go?

Flexibility is the best thing about freelancing. When you don’t have anything tying you down to a physical location or specific timeline, you can work from anywhere at any time.

No matter the reason you started working for yourself, you likely chose it for the freedom it offers for your schedule, work, and lifestyle. Maybe you wanted to spend more time with your family. Perhaps you longed to experience everything the world has to offer. Or maybe you were just tired of answering to someone else’s demands.

You were yearning for that #bosslesslife.

Sure, your clients have expectations, but their only concern is really one thing: the work. <tweet-link>The truth is, clients don’t care about where, when, and how you work. They just want to see results that meet the expectations you agreed upon together. With that in mind, it’s time to ask yourself: Why am I still treating my freelance business like a 9-to-5, butts-in-seats job?<tweet-link>

<tweet-link>Freelancing on-the-go isn’t about becoming a world traveler or buying a renovated school bus to use as your home (unless of course that’s your dream!). It’s about letting go of the limitations that keep you from living your #bosslesslife the way you want.<tweet-link>

This might look like:

Most importantly, this freedom comes from having the tools that make it possible. In this guide, we’re going to introduce you to the Hectic mobile app, your solution for mobile freelance work. You’ll get tips for running a business on-the-move, plus a sneak peek at how our mobile app can help make it happen.

Let’s unlock your #bosslesslife.

Why is the Hectic mobile app different from every other app?

Many (or even most) mobile apps are something known as “companion apps.” They offer a limited version of the tool’s features, but often require you to jump onto your computer to get things done quickly and easily.

They’re good in an emergency, but not reliable for staying in control of your business when you’re out.

With the Hectic mobile app, we’ve designed a full-service mobile freelance tool that does everything you need it to, wherever you are.

Some of the features we’re most excited about include:

  • Simplicity - We’ve designed the app to be focused, fast, and easy to use. You can access everything within a few taps, saving time and effort. Every filter is customizable so you can see your business in exactly the way that works best for you.
  • Mobile-optimized - We hate having to zoom in and shift our phones around to actually see what we’re looking at. Everything from buttons to forms to content is made to fit your phones. We’ve also made it work in both light and dark modes for the ultimate user experience.
  • Real-time sync - If you have the app open on both your phone and computer, you can watch changes take effect in real-time. Whether you’re tracking time or adding a client, everything saves and updates instantly.

<tweet-link>If you can do it on the web version, you can do it in the mobile app. Period. The Hectic mobile app isn’t a temporary solution for time out of the office, it’s made specifically to encourage time away from your desk. It’s your business, in your pocket, all of the time.<tweet-link>

Our team developed Hectic because we wanted to make freelancing possible for anyone. It’s why we offer your first client free, keep our price affordable, and focus our content on helping you start and thrive in your business. Now, we want to help you find and take opportunities everywhere.

It’s also why we’re writing this guide. With this stepping stone, we’re hoping you can throw yourself at your next venture without reservations or questions. It might be visiting Japan or just taking a long lunch down the road.

Can you feel the possibilities?
