Thanks, everyone, for the feedback. I was getting a check weekly for work
performed that week, but accounting asked if I could bill once a month. So
I've billed at the end of the month but it takes them another 3-4 weeks to
process the invoice which seems a little unfair given that the accounting
dept cuts checks weekly. As a small business owner, I have expenses to
cover and I agree with Lin - 30 days should not be the norm for payment.
I'm kinda new to this so I appreciate the tipsl
