Determine Billable Hours
“Billable hours” are simply hours worked that you can bill your clients for, which is usually the time you spend working on their projects or in meetings. Your number of billable hours is much different from actual hours worked, which adds activities such as marketing, working on your portfolio, accounting, and seeking out new clients. Calculate your billable hours for a week, which can be done by averaging billable hours for several previous weeks and months or by estimating based on your average workload. Once you have this weekly figure, multiply it by 52 to determine your yearly billable hours.
