I'm excited to share Tycoon with all of you on Product Hunt. Tycoon is one of the companies we have been fortunate enough to work with here at Human Ventures. The company was founded by Jess Perez, an experienced freelancer who was looking for a simple, digital way to track her income and payments from multiple, international clients. Tycoon was most recently featured by Credit Donkey as one of the best finance apps of 2017. I've been impressed with the team who have all had first had experience with the life of a freelancer and have built a product that speaks to their audience in a unique way. With Tycoon, simplicity is key. The app allows freelancers to easily record their jobs in any currency, see their income divided into paid, waiting, and overdue payment status, and send pre-populated email reminders to clients when payments are past due. The next feature set (out next week!) will let freelancers track the amount of taxes they should save from each paycheck so they can know their actual ‘take home’ income. It’s proven to be an awesome tool for freelancers from every profession you can think of-from consultants to graphic designers, models to yoga teachers- letting them take control of their financial lives and make better financial predictions for the future. Jess will be on Product Hunt live today at 10AM PDT / 1PM EDT Join here: https://www.producthunt.com/live...

@martagonz @tycoontracker I love the new design and the reminder function, now I don't feel guilty reminding my clients when they are late on a payment. Keep up the great work!!
Jessica PerezMaker@jesslperez · CEO and Founder, Tycoon
@gui_gar @martagonz @tycoontracker Thank you! As freelancers we are often made to feel bad for asking for payments we deserve. It's really strange when you think about it, but I can totally relate. Hope you experience some guilt-free reminding!
@jesslperez @martagonz @tycoontracker Yes, exactly! Why do we feel bad for asking for our own money? It doesn’t make sense, right? This type of tech definitely helps me be more business minded about the whole payment process. I like that the email reminder is friendly, but professional.
Jessica PerezMaker@jesslperez · CEO and Founder, Tycoon
@gui_gar @martagonz @tycoontracker Yes, we are very aware that freelancing is a relationships-based career so it's a delicate balance between making sure we get paid and keeping the client-freelancer relationship friendly.

Very cool! As a sometime freelancer consulting for other startups, I'll definitely be using this. Looking forward to the tax-tracker feature as well, since that is definitely a pain point come tax season
