I’m lucky to be in a business where I get paid before I do the work. There’s no waiting 30 or 60 days to receive a check. It’s all arranged up front before coaching is provided.
But this summer I had a new client who really couldn’t afford me and delayed payment for weeks after our initial session. After a lot of rig-a- marole, when the payment did arrive, it was short.
This didn’t feel great to me.
A day later another new client package arrived by Fedex. This client had started the day before. He overnight his book, the signed agreement and full payment.
Now this felt perfect.
