I was quoted in a really good article, written by Jane Porter for Fast Company: How freelancers can protect themselves and get paid on time. Here’s an excerpt:
LOOK OUT FOR PROBLEM CLIENTS FROM THE START
Often the issue of not getting paid on time can be avoided altogether if you know the problem signs to look out for when approached by new clients, says Ilise Benun, author of the book The Creative Professional’s Guide to Money. “Before you even get to the contract and deposit stage, you need to know what the red flags are for the problem clients,” she says.
Also, I’m updating my “Problem Clients” presentation at Revolve Conference in Charleston SC, Oct. 29-30, 2015. I’m one of 25+ speakers — it should be great. Hope to see you there.
