Credit Insurance – A backup plan for Tradies

Credit Insurance

It is common in business that clients may sometimes delay in paying what they owe you or even fail to pay up. The question then is, what can a tradie do in a situation where a customer fails to pay. One way to protect your business is to demand payment up front which can work for some clients but then you might end up losing business to other businesses that offer better payment terms. However, another means of protecting your business against bad debts is to get credit insurance. Credit insurance covers your business, so that you still get paid even if they go under or fail to pay you.

GOAL SETTING

Goal setting is more than just giving yourself a to-do list. You should set yourself a really meaningful long-term goal and then break it down into smaller achievable targets. Business owners should articulate this long term goal to the team through various mediums. Having a really well defined vision for the company provides clarity for all of your team members.
