And while I’ve shared a few tips on getting paid in full, solo and small firm owners will also be eager to get paid on time … and not six months from now.

But a key to doing that is consistency.

As I often say, you can’t read the label when you’re inside the jar.
So if you know of knowledge-based business owners who want outside perspective on how to get paid on time, invite them to set up a call with me.
