30-Day Blog Challenge, Day 27

A problem you have or have had in the past.

A problem that has recently developed for me is nonpayment from clients. I’m new to the freelancing world, but so far the majority of work that I’ve completed has been contractual. The companies that hire me provide a contract that explain when and how they prefer to be invoiced. So, I follow those directions precisely, because this is my livelihood here! I’m currently waiting on payment from two clients who were invoiced at the end of July. When I started to follow up about payment two weeks ago, one responded immediately and explained why accounts payable was behind and when the check would be delivered. The other client didn’t respond for a week. Every freelancer hopes to avoid this problem but I’m sure every single one has gone through it.
