I am overwhelmed and humbled by the responses to my leaving. During these last couple of days it has been very difficult for me to stay away. This place has become my addiction. Thanks to all for your kind and encouraging thoughts. It gives me hope that things are on the upward move here.

I was a little distressed to see others mention leaving for a while as well, I wasn’t meaning to start a trend and I certainly don’t want to hurt the forum in any way. Sal is going through quite a bit himself with the cost of this place and now the disruption of his life due to Wilma, he doesn’t need any more headaches. I’m going to see if I can budget the means to continue my support even if I am not here as often as I was.

Business wise, work is picking up again for me. Now the trick is to get my customers to pay in a timely manner. I need a guy who looks like Sal or Brett to personally encourage my customers to pay on time. Since I’m on the wrong coast I guess I’ll just have to look up a couple of old friends from the old neighborhood to help out in that area. Of course there’s the other approach that seems to work well, Get a guy who looks like he’s homeless, no personal hygiene for at least a week, send him to the delinquent office where he politely asks for payment due and will kindly wait in their front office until the check is ready. It’s a plus if he likes smelly foods like sardines, tuna and havarti cheese etc. snacking on them frequently through the day.

Any way, I’ll be popping in from time to time, not as much as I used to but I’ll not abandon my friends here. I didn’t mean to bum anyone out, for that I am sorry.

Thanks again,

Kev

PS. I like the Rev. Al Green

:welcome: back!

I missed you union tinner!

Collecting money is the toughest/most important part of owning a business. Last month, our firm did about a million bucks worth of analysis for an aerospace company and they went under.....they gave us a bunch of worthless stock certtificates. (our firm is a tiny employee owned shop so this really hurt us bad) It happens.....ALOT. Its hard to be tough with your clients when you need repeat business. BTW there is insurance you can buy that covers any losses resulting from unpaid tabs.....maybe something to consider.

I could go out and pretend to be a hooker and tell them the price is whatever they owe you, then I'd take the money and run!!!!! What do you think?

Oh, thanks for the thought but as the Father and guardian of three lovely young ladies close to your age I fear I would not deal well with that approach. I tend to be a bit overly protective.

My niece who lives with me works at a local pizza place, she had a problem with one of the guys there. I went to the place to discuss the situation with the young man and attempt to convince him to take a different path. The results were satisfactory. Her manager asked her; "Was that your Dad?" she responded; "No, that's my Uncle." manager; "He's a monster!" My niece tells me that when I walk in the place any guy working next to her steps aside to give her a little more space :hmm: :sneaky:. Now mind you, I've done nothing more than look them in the eye and speak in low but firm tones.

Now apply 'transferrence'.... imagine that all the clients who owe you money are trying to hit on your niece!

Yes, but I think it's better to have someone else do the dirty work so that when the client is properly trained I can come back as the good guy when it comes time to get more work from them. :D
