    Collections Companies - how to sell unpaid invoices?
    I'm a younger solo and have a constant problem with clients who take forever to pay. Until recently, I figured my only recourse would be to threaten small claims, which takes time and money and isn't really that much of a threat. I recently spoke …

    Etsy for office signs?
    Has anyone used Etsy or an online provider for a custom office sign? I've ordered a vinyl decal for the glass door, but would like to get a wood/metal sign for the outside wall. Just wanted to see if anyone had any recommendations.
