it’s all about planning

In my workshops, I show a couple of Derren Brown videos to show how important planning is to achieve the outcomes that you want – to get accounts paid on time.

Derren describes himself as a psychological illusionsist and that he uses a mixture of “magic, suggestion, psychology, mis-direction and showmanship” to achieve his outcomes but what he doesn’t say is that an incredible amount of planning has gone on beforehand to achieve them.  Same thing with setting collection procedures …

It’s all about planning.

1:  Work out what you want
(to get invoices paid on time)
2:  Work out how to achieve what you want
(to get invoices paid on time), and
3:  Write it down, step by step, and you WILL
get your invoices paid on time.

These two YouTube links show you what I mean.

10 mins – the advertising executives
(Can you imagine the planning and practice that’s gone on to achieve these results?)  … enjoy

About the Author:

Have you ever wondered why a client does business with you and then ignores your invoice like they had no intention of paying it in the first place or they treat you like their own personal line of credit, leaving YOU dangling, waiting months for their payment? Unfortunately this situation is all too common and can even be puzzling for the most experienced business owner. If you’ve ever had to handle outstanding accounts or you are just so over non-payers, then we can help. Real-world skills, solutions, tips & strategies to get more accounts paid on time, and, most importantly, how to maintain customer goodwill while keeping YOUR cash flow in the positive. You will find the blog posts helpful but to get real results, contact us by using any of the forms on this site, by email or by phone. I’ve been involved in the management of accounts for over 30 years, heard every excuse in the book, can spot a non-payer at 20 paces. Finance Companies in the 70s (systematic, tough), professional firms in the 80s (no systems, too gentle) and, since then, just about every other sort of business you can think of. I’ve written books on the topic, spoken all over the place about it and the blog in this website is my way of “giving back”. I hope you find it helpful.
