immediate cash. As a business, it has been around for hundreds of years. In

fact, if you want a Biblical reference to discounting invoices check out Luke16:

1- 13.

Without changing your general business practices and without hiring new

collections personnel, is there anything can you do to collect the money that is

owed to you in less time than it takes you today?



In a word, NO. No growth occurs without change. You will have to change. If

your current practices could get you paid sooner, they would be doing that already.

Change is important indeed, but… Continue

Aren't invited to THE club or chamber or lodge?

Start Your Own Chamber



Our local Houston chamber (one called Greater Houston Partnership) is a great source for about 10,000 highly active volunteers. But, it is hard to get involved and even harder to get a place of usefulness. The morning meetings downtown also necessitate commuting over an hour one way which is one reason why I started working for myself and I don't want to go back to that.
