Check out my Online Billing and Invoicing Software Guide, which has just been updated at +ConsumerAffairs . I've tested 13 options for online invoicing software to help small businesses, contractors, freelancers and others find the best option for their business. Some of the apps have project management features and task timers for hourly billing, some are integrated with or export to accounting software.

Does anyone know if US Cellular pushed out the patch for the SwiftKey security issue on Galaxy phones yet?
Mashable
Have a Samsung Galaxy device? Chances are it has a security flaw that lets attackers eavesdrop on your calls, and there's nothing you can do about it.

#3 Embrace the Shake. "We need to become limited before we can become limitless".
We all feel stuck sometimes — whether it’s on a creative project, in a job where we feel like we’ve plateaued, or a mental state we just can’t seem to shake out of. These talks may help give you that jolt.

I just bought some Paleo and gluten-free groceries at a discount, then got 25% off at Thrive Market. This is a subscription deal, like Sam's Club, except you order online - but first month is free so no charge if you cancel in 30 days. Clean eating, Paleo, Gluten-Free food and personal care items at quite the sweet discount.
Shop the best healthy, natural, non-GMO, organic, vegan, raw, Paleo, gluten-free, and non-toxic items from the top-selling brands at wholesale prices.

http://bible.com/r/2b I just finished day 2 of the @YouVersion Plan Experiencing God's Renewal. Check it out here:
Being a new creation in Christ means that we are being constantly renewed through Him. God renews our hearts, minds, and body. He even renews our purpose. During this 5-day reading plan, you will dive deeper into what God's Word says about renewal. Each day, you will get a Bible reading and a brief devotional that will help reflect on the different ways we experience God's renewal.
