6. CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION.

6.1 Overview. This Contract imposes special restrictions on how the Client and the Coach must handle confidential information. These obligations are explained in this section.

6.2 The Client's Confidential Information. While working for the Client, the Coach may come across, or be given, Client information that is confidential. This is information like customer lists, business strategies, research & development notes, statistics about a website, and other information that is private. The Coach promises to treat this information as if it is the Coach's own confidential information. The Coach may use this information to do its job under this Contract, but not for anything else. For example, if the Client lets the Coach use a customer list to send out a newsletter, the Coach cannot use those email addresses for any other purpose. The one exception to this is if the Client gives the Coach written permission to use the information for another purpose, the Coach may use the information for that purpose, as well. When this Contract ends, the Coach must give back or destroy all confidential information, and confirm that it has done so. The Coach promises that it will not share confidential information with a third party, unless the Client gives the Coach written permission first. The Coach must continue to follow these obligations, even after the Contract ends. The Coach's responsibilities only stop if the Coach can show any of the following: (i) that the information was already public when the Coach came across it; (ii) the information became public after the Coach came across it, but not because of anything the Coach did or didn't do; (iii) the Coach already knew the information when the Coach came across it and the Coach didn't have any obligation to keep it secret; (iv) a third party provided the Coach with the information without requiring that the Coach keep it a secret; or (v) the Coach created the information on its own, without using anything belonging to the Client.

6.3 Third-Party Confidential Information. It's possible the Client and the Coach each have access to confidential information that belongs to third parties. The Client and the Coach each promise that it will not share with the other party confidential information that belongs to third parties, unless it is allowed to do so. If the Client or the Coach is allowed to share confidential information with the other party and does so, the sharing party promises to tell the other party in writing of any special restrictions regarding that information.

7. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY.

Neither party is liable for breach-of-contract damages that the breaching party could not reasonably have foreseen when it entered this Contract.

8. INDEMNITY.

8.1 Overview. This section transfers certain risks between the parties if a third party sues or goes after the Client or the Coach or both. For example, if the Client gets sued for something that the Coach did, then the Coach may promise to come to the Client's defense or to reimburse the Client for any losses.

8.2 Client Indemnity. In this Contract, the Coach agrees to indemnify the Client (and its affiliates and their directors, officers, employees, and agents) from and against all liabilities, losses, damages, and expenses (including reasonable attorneys' fees) related to a third-party claim or proceeding arising out of: (i) the work the Coach has done under this Contract; (ii) a breach by the Coach of its obligations under this Contract; or (iii) a breach by the Coach of the promises it is making in Section 3 (Representations).

8.3 Coach Indemnity. In this Contract, the Client agrees to indemnify the Coach (and its affiliates and their directors, officers, employees, and agents) from and against liabilities, losses, damages, and expenses (including reasonable attorneys' fees) related to a third-party claim or proceeding arising out of a breach by the Client of its obligations under this Contract.

9. GENERAL.

9.1 Assignment​. This Contract applies only to the Client and the Coach. Neither the Client nor the Coach can assign its rights or delegate its obligations under this Contract to a third-party (other than by will or intestate), without first receiving the other's written permission.

9.2 Arbitration. As the exclusive means of initiating adversarial proceedings to resolve any dispute arising under this Contract, a party may demand that the dispute be resolved by arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association in accordance with its commercial arbitration rules.

9.3 Modification; Waiver. To change anything in this Contract, the Client and the Coach must agree to that change in writing and sign a document showing their contract. Neither party can waive its rights under this Contract or release the other party from its obligations under this Contract, unless the waiving party acknowledges it is doing so in writing and signs a document that says so.

9.4. Noticies.

(a) Over the course of this Contract, one party may need to send a notice to the other party. For the notice to be valid, it must be in writing and delivered in one of the following ways: personal delivery, email, or certified or registered mail (postage prepaid, return receipt requested). The notice must be delivered to the party's address listed at the end of this Contract or to another address that the party has provided in writing as an appropriate address to receive notice.

(b) The timing of when a notice is received can be very important. To avoid confusion, a valid notice is considered received as follows: (i) if delivered personally, it is considered received immediately; (ii) if delivered by email, it is considered received upon acknowledgement of receipt; (iii) if delivered by registered or certified mail (postage prepaid, return receipt requested), it is considered received upon receipt as indicated by the date on the signed receipt. If a party refuses to accept notice or if notice cannot be delivered because of a change in address for which no notice was given, then it is considered received when the notice is rejected or unable to be delivered. If the notice is received after 5:00pm on a business day at the location specified in the address for that party, or on a day that is not a business day, then the notice is considered received at 9:00am on the next business day.

9.5 Severability. This section deals with what happens if a portion of the Contract is found to be unenforceable. If that's the case, the unenforceable portion will be changed to the minimum extent necessary to make it enforceable, unless that change is not permitted by law, in which case the portion will be disregarded. If any portion of the Contract is changed or disregarded because it is unenforceable, the rest of the Contract is still enforceable.

9.6 Signatures. The Client and the Coach must sign this document using Bonsai's e-signing system. These electronic signatures count as originals for all purposes.

9.7 Governing Law. The validity, interpretation, construction and performance of this document shall be governed by the laws of the United States of America.

9.8 Entire Contract. This Contract represents the parties' final and complete understanding of this job and the subject matter discussed in this Contract. This Contract supersedes all other contracts (both written and oral) between the parties.

Do you spend a lot of time on non-productive tasks? If yes, you may need to invest in a good log hours app. With such an app, you may never have to worry about being unproductive, which can be a major deterrent in progressing in your freelancing career. For the most part, you only have to develop a habit of working smarter rather than harder to overcome this problem. The app makes you more smarter, which then benefits the consultancy.

Log Hours App

Below are a few ways the log hours app can be immensely helpful to your freelancing business.

1. Stop working overtime with the log hours app

Overtime is good but not healthy. It’s fine to work overtime only when it’s absolutely necessary. Otherwise, you should plan your day well. Good freelancers plan their schedule well. Failure to schedule all your activities well – possibly at the start of the day – could force you into working overtime, which could then affect your health negatively. It’s impossible to be productive when you’re struggling with poor health. Your freelancing business suffers when you’re unwell.

Use the log hours app for planning your time well instead of working overtime.

2. Take a nap when using the log hours app

Depending on the nature of your freelance work, you may need to spare some time for a nap every day. It’s fine to be a polyphasic sleeper, which is normal with almost 85 percent of all mammals. Some of the leading companies in the world have a pro-napping policy. Their employees are more productive because of this policy. Your consultancy benefits greatly when you also follow suit.

3. Delegate responsibility with the log hours app

There are times when your brain needs a bit of a rest. The body too needs rest if you’re to continue operating at optimal levels. Therefore, you should never be afraid of delegating responsibility. Some projects require only 1-2 freelancers. Other projects would never get off the ground without involving a large team of consultants. You run the risk of burning out by doing everything yourself too. Learn to avoid burnouts.

4. Avoid being a perfectionist with the log hours app

Some freelancers are perfectionists. They have no problem being all that and more. Don’t fret if you struggle being a perfectionist. Perfectionism can trip you and make you less productive. Many freelancers end up spending more time focused on getting everything right to the detriment of everything else that the business needs. The log hours app should help you be more pragmatic rather than stressing yourself trying to be a perfectionist.

5. Embrace automation and ignore repetitive tasks with the log hours app

Many freelancers waste plenty of time on repetitive tasks that don’t contribute to the bottom line. Automation is the best solution in situations where the repetitive tasks are making you less productive and inefficient. Once more, the app is your most important tool. It provides you with tons of information. In freelancing – just as it’s the case with everything else that entrepreneurs do – time is money. Automate some tasks to save time.

6. Use data as the basis for your decisions with the log hours app

There are moments when inefficiency is nothing other than the result of the decisions you make. Base your decisions on the data that the app provide and you will notice a significant increase in your productivity and efficiency. Do not rely on guesswork. Optimize your life as a way of not only growing but also maximizing your potential as a freelancer. Use data from the app to know the hours when you are most productive then make necessary changes.

Stop struggling with inefficiency in your freelancing business.

Find an excellent and highly reputable log hours app to use instead.

Are you part of an organization? Your organization can benefit too from the log hours app

The log hours app has tremendous benefits to your organization. It’s just like any other time tracker but with a few major differences. It opens the door for great things to come into your business too. Time tracking can be a revelation to your business. It highlights the time you – or any of your employees and teams – fritter away in non-productive tasks. It offers you a chance for re-evaluating everything and focusing on what’s important alone.

1. The log hours app is better than timesheets

For the most part, timesheets bring in a new kind of mentality to the business. Many of your workers would not be ready or too willing to fill in the timesheets. The focus should be on encouraging them to do that. They have to understand the risks and rewards of not filling vs. filling the timesheets. Where this continues to be a struggle, the log hours app can be a better alternative.

The app appreciates one simple fact: lost time costs money. There can be no substitute for time spent on non-productive activities. Employees have to understand that the job you employ them to do requires proper concentration. Without that, nothing else would matter. You can train employees to be more dedicated and committed to their jobs. One way of doing this is by installing time tracking apps to log hours.

2. The log hours app improves your management skills

Are you aiming to be the best manager and leader of your team? Then you should be ready to sit down with anyone who is not putting in the effort. Normally, sitting down with them would involve praising them for work done properly and to the customer’s satisfaction. However, you would also need to be ready to work with them on their shortcomings, which is where the log hours app comes in by providing a foundation for your claims and criticisms.

Use the app as one of the ways of giving your team the feedback they need to be better.

3. The log hours app restricts workers to their core functions

Every minute your workers spend on their actual job descriptions has a positive effect on your business. Each minute is valuable to the company. The log hours app seeks to save you money. Time spent on non-core functions costs the company a lot of money. The company cannot afford to grow in any way if it continues losing money. For these reasons, it’s better to install the app and monitor employees’ use of time.

4. Use the log hours app to motivate and teach

In the United States, failure to track workers or log hours cost the economy $7.4 billion daily. Explain this fact to your employees. Give examples they can relate to, so they understand what that figure means for the company for whom they work. Explain the benefits they – and the company – eventually stand to derive from the app. It’s better to be open about any changes you wish to introduce than expecting them to adhere to adjustments they know nothing about.

Before introducing the log hours app to your team, prepare guidelines on how you expect it to be used. Be ready to change the system and the culture in the office too. You can take several measures to change the culture for the better. These include making the workplace good for everybody; removing brilliant jerks; building resilience with teams; being more open; and embracing technology, which is where the app falls.

Your employees might struggle in setting up the app. Have a system in place to help them with that or any other issue they may encounter with the app. Share reports from the app with the entire office. Address problems the app identifies early enough and more efficiently as well. Follow-up the issues emerging from the tracking with all the concerned parties and ask the workers for feedback too.
