I have been known to most people as “Dave Kollasch – professional rollerblader” – who, starting at 15 years of age, toured the world in the sport of extreme inline skating (even holding the record for longest rail-slide – 394 feet). My sponsors included Senate and Razors.
Long before Internet-based invoicing, I was billing my sponsors from wherever I was in the world. I would create these invoices by hand and fax or mail them, hoping for prompt receipt and payment. This tedious process continued for 7 years. Between opening a skate shop (at age 19) and starting a lawn service business (at age 23), it was obvious that I needed a faster, high-tech, solution to address low or high volume invoicing.
Ready-made computer programs did not allow me to create estimates, submit invoices, or track time when I was away from my desktop computer. Using QuickBooks*, for example, I found myself immersed in accounting principles that are “like glaciers, when all I needed was an ice cube”.
Necessity is the Mother of Invention! Consequently, I began constructing a Web-based invoicing system that comes from the perspective of an entrepreneur – not an accountant. To help small business, Greenerbilling has “reinvented the ice cube”.
