We Are Alive! March 7th, 2022 Monday Monday MONEY

Today is billing day. Once the sale is made, good or services rendered, it's time to bill the client. It's a strange thing, but I have a tricky time billing. One would think that's the "fun" part, but for me it's a bit of a chore.

I hate paying bills, but it's a part of life. I hate sending bills, but it's a part of life. Don't get me wrong, when the client pays their bill, it pays my wages and keeps my family fed - that's certainly important and needed. But pushing myself to not neglect billing, it's the final and perhaps one of the most important steps in the process.

Being a small business, I have to wear a lot of different hats. Prospecting, selling, secretary, managing, purchasing, accounting, shipping/receiving, billing. Did I miss anything?

Paying the bills sucks but it's a part of life. The last thing you need is for it to cause more problems in your daily life.

Yes, I have to remember that even though I don't like paying bills, it's not wrong to send a bill for a completed service.

Managing a small business is one of the most difficult things there is, especially having to deal with bureaucracy.
I saw your email on Listnerds.

Not easy to have several hats, but I have the impression that you prefer the beanie 👀😁

I have always felt weird about asking for money. And yet, we need to get paid for the services we provide when that is how we make our living. It is also challenging to do everything ourselves as small business owners. Having time designated for specific tasks makes a lot of sense.

It isn't always mine either! I really have to push myself to get certain things done sometimes. I find that doing harder tasks first helps because that is what I tend to procrastinate on. Thanks for the tokens. Enjoy your day!😀

I had my own business a long time ago. My wife started her business a couple of years ago. I warned her about all the hats. She forged ahead. Now there are days when she regrets her decision. Good post. Thanks

In a small company, it usually happens that they have to assume different responsibilities and fulfill several tasks that are very different from each other.

I worked with some relatives in a small party services company and I remember that my uncle was both a Manager and a Freight Driver, we all took on various activities and worked on things that were necessary, from billing, budgeting, customer service, purchases, preparation of inputs and many other things.

I remember it was not easy. Although I must say that it was a satisfying time, it was nice to see that everything ended well.

I love Mondays, I like them too much. In my last formal job, I worked Sunday and Monday much more than the other days, since, on Friday, everyone had their payment in their accounts on time. They always looked at me strangely because I love Mondays. And of course, you have to put on the corresponding hat. Greetings.
