AMA II: Electric Boogaloo. And Then There Was Day 2.

Hey there, hero!

Earlier in the year, the AMA (Ask Me Anything) I did was really well received and was lots of fun.

So, I thought, let’s do it again! And you came through with lots of great questions.

Today’s 2nd day of questions deal with why P2P sites have such bad reps, and how to handle clients that just won’t pay.

Let’s get to it!

Hope this helps!

  1. David, thank you for these videos and all the time you put in. Its so easy to only think of asking you about the business vs. you. If I could go back and include them, I would ask you what are your personal obstacles to being your personal best that you face. I would ask, what are your goals for 2020? I might ask, what are the top 5 books you have read in your life? And I would ask, who are the three most influential people (living or not) in your life? And lastly, lets hear that story about your landlord!

  2. I know it’s been a while since you worked for the government, so I thought I’d clear up one point. The federal government is required to pay either by the date agreed upon in the contract, or 30 days after receipt of an invoice. The days of 180-day payment lags are gone. See U.S. Code § 3903.Regulations for the specific language (section 39 is often referred to as the “Prompt Payment Act”). Most state governments also have prompt payment legislation in place for state agencies.

    1. It took 4 months and 6 days for a DARPA contractor to pay me for a narration job earlier this year. Their attitude was “Go ahead and complain.” That’s what I’ve based my comments on. I am thrilled that you are getting paid faster.

  3. I am playing catch-up on The Daily videos so sorry for the late response. concerning collections, having been in radio sales for over 25 years I have a bit of experience in this. If you were doing work for an agency, sad to say they’re notoriously 60 to 90 to 120 days. Unless you have a firm agreement in writing. I have found mostly when there is a slope a a conversation including a phrase similar to I am trying to avoid legal action against your company but… Also ask them to help you getting getting the matter cleared up. Often times you can combine those two and get the effect of I’m in your corner and you don’t turn out to be the bad guy, the other thing is remember they’re the one not paying a bill you should not feel embarrassed because they didn’t pay their bill. It can get kind of harsh but often times it can be cleared up without it going that far
