Hi Benedict

First of all, I’m sorry that happened to you. I went through a similar situation a while back which prompted me to change my terms to a 50% deposit, 50% due upon completion schema, unless it’s something that involves printing. In that case, since I have a supplier dependency, the entire balance is due before the printing is organised.

I have also put on a seven day term. I pay my bills within that timeframe so I don’t want to do business with companies that cannot or will not (usually more to the point) do the same. This may lose me some potential business, but I suppose potential business doesn’t pay the bills.

By the way, I love the touches of history in your blog … Very nicely done.

Well, hang in there. I’m sure a great client is right around the corner. When you ‘make a space’, amazing things can (and do) happen.

Ok, it’s time for bluerays! :-)
