Charging for Your Time
Do you charge for every minute you spend working on a particular project or case? What about when a past client calls and asks you to look up a detail in an old file? It may take you fifteen or twenty minutes to find that file and then another ten to email or call the client back. Do you charge for it or chalk it up to part of doing business?
What about those five minute phone calls for updates or "I need this document" or "the deadline for this is..."?
These "little" interruptions can quickly add up to billable hours you are missing out on. How do you handle it?
