In this episode of The Creative Business Podcast I talk to Ryan Battles of Harpoon, a financial goal‑setting, time‑tracking, and invoicing app. Ryan talks about the struggle of freelance finances, and how we can better resolve some of these problems.

Whether you're a freelancer, studio or agency, finances are no joke. It can be easy to put finances to one side and focus on the "fun" stuff, like work. But forget about your finances for too long and you're asking for trouble. Ryan spoke to me about his app Harpoon, and some of the ways it can help your business to be more financially responsible.
