As a creative, you have better things to do than spend time managing money. Every minute you spend sending invoices or trying to keep track of your income, the less time you have for what you love.

These are my top recommendations for what you need to successfully manage your business finances:
Banking - Novo
Invoicing - Stripe
Investing - Fidelity
Accounting - Wave
Credit - American Express
