Say No to Learning Invoice Software: 7 Things Freelancers Would Rather Do3 min read

Freelancers are a tough breed. They’re always hustling, finding their next gig; straight up bosses doing it for themselves. But if there’s one thing that all freelancers will avoid, it’s learning invoicing software. Sure, it’s meant to be easy, but it’s so tedious that we can’t help but list all the things we would rather do on a summer day.

How Wrong Is Wikipedia?

While you’re trying to get a hang of invoicing software, take a moment (or all 25 hours it typically takes to learn those things) to answer a question as old as time: “How wrong is Wikipedia?” We all know the common user writes information on the site and if there’s anything that the Internet has taught us it’s that Internet users are sometimes dummies. So buckle down and start researching. It’s now your job to make this world a bit smarter.

Find That Pair Of Headphones From Two Years Ago

You need some headphones to focus in on that deadline and your go-to pair just gave out. You KNOW those earbuds are in your house and you’re on a mission to find them. You won’t stop till that free pair from the airplane is back in your hands!

Reconcile With a Mortal Enemy

You know what lays on you? Holding grudges. It gives you bad juju. You’ve been meaning to work it out to your mortal enemy for oh, ages now, but you’ve just never had the time! You never really wanted to resolve these past woes until you had to face hours of learning new software…what a coincidence! Well, would you look at that, just as you were about to learn QuickBooks you had this sudden urge to break out your old address book and finally call Jim, the devil that slathered gum all over your hair in fourth grade. Sure, balancing the books is important but think about how clear your aura will be to tell Jim “no hard feelings”.

Learn To Cook A Bouillabaisse

The day to figure out invoicing software is (shocker) also the day to cook a fish stew you can’t pronounce.

Re-watch The Office

The hit television show, The Office, features accountants Oscar, Angela, and Kevin. There’s a solid chance that they were using invoicing software, so watching all nine seasons of The Office is practically homework. While you’re at it, you might as well binge the three seasons of the British Office as well. Not only will you undoubtedly be completing your assignment, you can make a definitive decision on which you think is the better couple: Pam and Jim or Tim and Dawn?

Get Your Teeth Cleaned

“An apple a day keeps the doctor away, but it won’t keep the dentist at bay” is a lesser-known extension of the popular rhyme because if you’ve been eating a lot of apples, your teeth need a good scrub! Sure, it’s unpleasant to get those pearly whites white, but at least you’ll feel a little less agitated than how it feels to learn complicated software.

Become A Social Media Star!

Because getting a ton of strangers to follow you seems easier than learning this darn software.
Honestly, this list could go on and on because learning invoicing software is another task freelancers don’t need to have on their plate. That’s why you should sign up for AND CO because they want to do those tasks for you. WHAT. A. DREAM. Also, tell all of your followers to sign up as well after you become the social media star you always dreamed of being!
