Hey, freelancer! Congratulations on taking the world by storm and deciding that you hold the key to to your professional destiny.

At Qapital, we know that money, whether you’re making it or saving it, is an everyday issue. We created the Freelancer Rule to help you put aside money for taxes but there’s so much more to the app that can make your life as a freelancer better.

Once you sign up for Qapital and link your checking account and credit cards, you can start saving while you’re spending money and time growing your business — and living your life.

Here are four ways you can use Qapital to stay both independent and wealthy while you’re freelancing:

Save your change: When you’re freelancing, there’s no supply closet or in-office expense account. So whether you’re picking up supplies for a presentation or grabbing a snack to the airport on the way to a meeting, use the Round-Up Rule to save your change toward your Goal every time you swipe your card at the register.

Cash in on your coffee: Personal finance experts are always telling you to stop buying coffee in the morning if you want to save money. We disagree — we need our coffee. Get the most out of each double shot of espresso, latte, red eye, or plain cup of joe by setting your favorite coffee shop as your Guilty Pleasure. That way, you’re saving for something special every time you caffeinate.

Power your walk Set the Moves Rule and you can save every time you walk a mile. That includes pacing the carpet brainstorming new ideas, taking the stairs instead of an elevator or parking your car at the farthest spot in the lot to get those extra steps in.

If This, Then Save Connect Qapital with IFTTT and you’ve suddenly got thousands of ways to save. Reward yourself every time your company gets a new Twitter follower or when you check in on FourSquare at your favorite place to work. You can even connect the Weather to Qapital and reward yourself for working on a beautiful day.

Put money in its place

Master your money with the app that makes it easy to divvy up every dollar so you can balance what you want with what you need.
