When i'm meet up a friend who startup a business consultant company today. The first word would be he say... "Haiz.z..... hard to collect the payment in today market."
I will reply immediately:
Why? Market down? It's because you do not want to collect? Or, you forgot to ask for payment? Or your customer run away from you? All the possibilities I mention has not hit the answer.
I will then reply again... No worry, take it easy. Why not you hire a person to manage your account and report to you the financial status in weekly or monthly basics? How about get yourself a good software manage your overdue invoices. With this way, you can refer to the system to perfume the job as "debts collector". I believe this will resolve your problem.
