Most of my clients are very prompt with payment and I just love'em for that. But there are some that are either very slow on paying or just don't pay at all. One fellow I coached recently just flat out stiffed me. That infuriates me. If he were to call me and say, "Hey, going through a rough financial time, but I can pay you in a month." Then, I can accept that. Hey, life happens sometimes, right?
But to ignore me and cause me to look at the next client with doubt? I really hate that. My advice to these slackers?
PAY UP AND THEN SHUT UP.
