emailed a new client who was late in paying an invoice.

Not very late – just a day past 30.  Much easier to just do nothing and hope the check arrives eventually.

Most times, when this happens, it’s just an oversight.  But even if it isn’t, it’s up to us, as solos, to get comfortable with the subject of money and to take quick action as necessary.

(She apologized for the delay and told me the check would go out tomorrow.)
