Business tips – upfront money

It’s funny how trustworthy some people are with their clients, even those that come from “who knows where.” Our advice? Upfront money.
At the very least, get a contract down on paper. Even if they’re close personal friends, and you’ve known them since kindergarten, there is still the chance that you’ll get stiffed from any job. There’s no telling with people that you have never met. It’s like purchasing from eBay but instead of buying something, you’re selling your services. Why do you think rental places ask for first month’s rent? You better be ready to not be able to collect or go through small-claims court if you ever get stiffed. And that’s just a plain hassle.
So get that upfront money. It will save you a lot of heartache and stress in the future.
