You’ve worked hard all week, all month – let’s face it all year. And now, it’s time to get paid. Easy enough, right? I mean you’ve already put in the hours on behalf of the client. The job is progressing nicely and the client is pleased.

Smooth sailing from here. The only thing left to do is bill the client and collect. What could be easier? I’m joking of course. Somewhere between doing all the work on a project and billing the client for that work, a whole dialogue happens for many of us. I say us because it used to happen with me. The fact that it doesn’t anymore means there’s a way out of that predicament for you too.
