New To

Hi everyone, I am a new Business for 2013. I have been working for other companies for the past 10 yrs and decided to venture out on my own. Fortunately I was able to partner up with silent partner which will work hand in hand. He owns a company that will help supply clientele as vice versa. I am open to any suggestions as my journey begins.

Thank you and God Bless,

HEY, Welcome. I think you will find a GREAT amount of info here. dont forget to do a search be4 posting.
you having been in the business for a while. about the only advice I can give is, decide on what type of company you want to have. " As in-work for anyone, or high scale customers "

I can speak from advice. get your self an agreement. for the customer to sgin. give them 10 days to have there payment in your office after reciving the invoice. mail out on the last day of the month and have it due on the 10th. if not then charge 3% interest, anythign after the 15 RE-INVOICE them at a charge of 35.00 after the 20th. STOP SERVICE.........

I know this sounds harsh. BUT do it right from the get go and there wil be NO issues.......

Best of luck to you
Dont even talk to people who cant purchase your product or service.........Dave Thomas.

Thank you bohiaa, as I have learned in the past how payments are tooth and nail to get sometimes. I have suggested to most my clients to pay a month in advance. Majority of my clients are on board.
