Slow paying clients can definitely hold things up at a small business!! Most clients don't mean to pay late, but it's what works for their schedule or they even simply forgot! A simple reminder is no issue; but once you feel like you're being a pester you may want to take some steps to avoid the situation overall. I shared some tips in my latest post on Forbes. I hope this helps! Have a great weekend!
No matter what type of business you operate, you’re bound to experience slow paying customers. Here are several tips on how to deal with late payments and motivate clients to pay you promptly in the future.

Tax season has come and gone - but for some the pain could still be felt by a hefty payment. Did you know that your businesses' #legal  structure can affect how much you pay in taxes? It does! If you got hit hard this year, it may be time to re-evaluate that structure to make some changes for your 2016 taxes. Here is some more insight on my blog. I hope it helps!

If you're asked to sign a noncompete agreement down the line for a job or after a business acquisition, there are some things to watch for as signing this agreement could have serious implications for your future. Read the fine print and note the state you live in and what is allowed where - especially in California. Hope this helps! 
If you’ve been asked to sign a noncompete agreement in order to get a new job, promotion or severance, don’t just sign without fully understanding the details inside.

Even with all of my electronics - there is nothing like a good old-fashioned sticky note that does wonders for my productivity. Do you use them or any other old school business tool? I'd love to know of others! I shared my favorites in my latest on Huffington Post.

Story
Tagline
Mom, Wife, Small Business Owner and CEO of CorpNet.com!
Introduction
I'm a mom of four beautiful children and am married to my best friend, my business partner and my husband of 16 years. My husband and I started our first business back in 1997 from our apartment and grew that venture to a lager company that was acquired by Intuit in 2005. We could have retired then - but who wants to do that? In 2009, we started CorpNet.com, where we help entrepreneurs incorporate a business, Form an LLC, file a DBA and many other legal startup tasks.
