Re: Begin Vent
Crp, I had a client once who had a similar situation with getting paid. I set him up with a computer program which would report every one of his clients to the credit bureaus every month. Those who paid on time got a good report every month. Those who were chronically late got a "late payment" report for a month or two before getting a "paid in full" report. Each client got a copy of the report each month with their invoice. The word got around pretty quickly and payments started coming in on a more timely basis.
He lost a couple of clients, but gained several more to make up for those.
