Process diary

  • (A)  Track your downfall with a simple cashflow forecast.

    Better to prepare for the worst than to put jobs that are only pie in the sky. Wait till the contract is signed (if you have one…) and the schedule is in place before you start counting the money.

  • (A)  Set an hourly rate using maths!

    It is actually based on what you need to earn to survive and not just what your mate down the street is charging or what you blurted out in a panic whilst having a coffee with the client.

  • (A)  Receive money BEFORE you work

    Despite the promise of quick payment in exchange for bending our rules this has always led to the opposite — huge delays in the final payment.
