One thing that really annoys me is when you have a client who is talking about their 6 figure business, but they can’t pay your invoice for $110. Or the one for $25.
Yes, it’s annoying that you’re not going to get that money, but the thing that annoys me the most is how it makes you feel about YOURSELF.
It’s happened to me and while I was annoyed about the invoices not being paid, I was more annoyed that it made me feel like what I had to offer wasn’t good enough.
It made me feel like I didn’t deserve that money, or that I wasn’t providing enough value to justify that money.
Even though there were other people who had paid in full and on time, I let that one person’s actions define my self-worth and that’s not something anyone should have the power to do.
It’s easy to think about what you could have done to have created this situation, but it just doesn’t work like that. The situation is created solely by the other person and is not a reflection on you.
If you’re ever in a similar situation it’s up to you whether you keep chasing the payments or let them go. I decided to let them go, because I don’t want that negative energy hanging around me.
Remember that it has nothing to do with you and that the experience has something to teach you. I learnt that I’m not going to offer payment plans for things under $300, as it’s too much hassle. I was also reminded of fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me.
The money isn’t worth the hassle and my dream clients won’t need to be reminded to pay their invoices.
#Petpeeve - when someone uses MY photo without MY permission to advertise their business. .
I think social media has caused many of us to think that Intellectual Property Rights are a thing of the past! And no, reposting, tagging or acknowledging the person doesn't absolve you.They still have every right to ask you to remove THEIR photo from YOUR page. (I won't even go into #cyberbullying or #defamation)
In fact, if you read the fine print of Instagram's (or any other social media paltform) user policy (yes, that thing that you clicked on when signing up without reading😀) it explicitly tells you to ensure you have the right to the pics you post. Of course, most of us (including me), run afoul of this BUT we are NOT usually trying to advertise a product for sale).
Believe it or not, celebrities aren't the only ones with rights to their name, brand and image. Most importantly, a person shopping with you is not an automatic endorsement of you, your products or your services. If they are pleased with your goods or services, they will usually acknowledge you on their own accord (as I often do). You can't simply grab someone's image and do with it what you please. If you are a business, posting or reposting photos of your customers online, please obtain their permission!!! .
