I'm sure you've noticed by now that the blog world is going crazy about online courses. I'm right there in the middle of the hype. I LOVE online courses because they're an amazing way to gain new skills and learn from others.

  • Learn from others who have been in your position and can show you how to grow from there. 
  • Learn at a fast pace instead of having to experiment and research everything yourself.

What is Pancake App? Why use Pancake?

Pancake is online invoicing, project management, time tracking and proposal software for your business. You only pay for it once and then you're done! No monthly payments snapping at your bank balance. 

Pancake app does what Freshbooks, Quickbooks and Wave does- but better. 

I've been using Pancake to invoice my clients for the last two years and even though I've tried a lot of other invoicing systems, they haven't come close to what Pancake can do.
