You seem to have a handle on things. Hope you get paid for your work.

Money drives people mad. If it was truely about the amount of money, i always can work out payment plans over a couple of months with my customers, that is not a problem. Its horrible when people demand to be paid when you get work done on a vehicle or a personal household repair,but when you send out bills customers take there la di da time to pay you and dont care that you have to pay your bills.

Next year i think im going to do fixed rates each month for everything for all of my customers, instead of having more cash flow in some months than others. If i break it up over 12 months, instead of 8, they will have a lower payment and be paying for services year round. All payments would be one month prior to service and they would know what the money is going towards. I would have income all 12 months and not have to budget as much. Cashflow would be tigher during the working months, but it would be much simpler.
