If you’re starting to tire of the Wave, not to worry. This will be our last post on the subject for a while.

When you go out on your own, there comes that moment where you feel a little panicked about the management of your money. With the freedom of being your own boss, there comes the full responsibility over every aspect of your business.

Having a good tool to track and visualize exactly where your money is coming and going is vital to a healthy business. Especially for those of us who have a poor track record with managing our funds. Pulse is a one such tool.
