How to ask your clients for your payment?

I saw my colleague recently and she looked distressed. I recalled that she accepted a position at a small law firm and her salary was not more than $7,000 so I suspected that this was frustrating her.

I asked her why she did not consider starting  her own law practice. She replied that she thought about it but she was uncomfortable asking for her payment.

I once heard that “begging” is asking in a pathetic manner.

But it is still asking.

I am of the view that you can confidently ask for your full payment from the start.

A few tips

Know your worth.

 Take a good look at yourself and realize that you are a professional.

 You must first be convinced that you deserve your full payment.

When you value yourself and respect your time and work, new clients have no choice but to make your full payment.

Let your clients know that you can start working on their project as soon as you receive payment:

I can start working on your documents as soon as you make full payment.

 I await full payment.

I will send your receipt as soon as you make the full payment.

Refund or Reputation?

There was an incident in Trinidad in December 2019 involving a cake that was delivered by a cake baker that was not well received by the customer.

 I am of the view that in a case like this a full refund must be offered right away. Social media may be used by dissatisfied customers to post pictures of items received from an online business owner or of screenshots from conversations. There are legal options to seek redress but the immediate aftermath is embarrassment, less clients, reputational damage and hurt feelings.

Always be able to give a full refund.

 A refund will not stop your customer from being disappointed with your service or product but a customer is less likely to rant on social media about an online business after they received a refund. It is my desire that you only accept projects that you can complete and that you accept clients that you love to work with.

I take written instructions from my clients and I read it over to them to ensure that we are both on the same page. I do not accept every client that approaches me because I am not always able to give their matter my full attention and they deserve my undivided attention.

May you always select clients who love your work and support your purpose.

To do List •

 Create a Refund Policy and share it with your customers.

• Decide under what circumstances you are willing to give a full cash refund.

What is a Hustler?

A hustler is an ambitious person who works smart to create the life that they want without regard to the circumstances.”-Antoinette Sydney

 Traditionally the word “hustler” has been given a negative connotation. It has been interpreted as being involved in illegal activities such as narcotics or selling happiness. On one platform the hashtag “hustler” was banned. Posts that use this hashtag will be flagged . This is not the interpretation that we will be using because it is disrespectful and far from the truth.

Hustlers never quit, we find innovative ways to take care of ourselves and our families. We use our skills to pay the bills. We are willing to give our customers value in exchange for full payment. A hustler is not to be confused with a “con man” or “smart mam” or “scamp”. The latter must understand that every “six for a nine” that is given to innocent, unsuspecting customers will come back tenfold. You may have a full-time job, or you may be a mother who takes care of her family and you want to start your online business. When is the best time to start an online business?

My answer is now, you are well able to start and succeed in your online business with the help of my book that I wrote just for you.

How to provide outstanding customer service:

I am well on my way to reading one book every week  pursuant to my new year’s resolution. This week, I am exploring “The magic of Thinking Big by David Schwartz. In one chapter he narrates a  story of an irate guest at a hotel who sent a telegram to reserve a room for a single occupant but who came to the hotel clerk requesting  hotel room with double occupancy. The customer insulted the clerk threatening to have him fired and questioned his intelligence. The young clerk apologized but declared that he was merely following instructions.

The author was next in line to deal with the clerk but was pleasantly surprised when the clerk greeted him warmly. The author told the clerk that he admired the way that he dealt with the previous customer. The clerk stated that he refused to be infuriated by a customer like that, he empathised with the man and supposed that he was having marital problems and that the man used him as a scapegoat to feel superior. The clerk added that “…underneath he is  probably a nice guy, most folks are…”

The author then suggested that we remember this statement the next time someone “declares war on us. He said the best way to deal with situations like this is to let the other person say their piece, then forget about it”.

We have nothing to lose by following this approach. Instead of responding to their insults , especially for those of us who work in the service industry, it is wise to hold our tongue. There is nothing to gain by charging with bitter words. The other person may in fact be experiencing some trying times and may simply want attention. Although you may find that your minimum wage does not pay you enough to take insults, I am sure by the following week that you will forget the exchange of words.

Top 10 ways to Launder Drug Money through a Casino: Free Anti Money Laundering Training in Trinidad!!

In casinos it is normal practice for patrons to enter with large sums of cash on their person. They sometimes go to the cashier’s cage and pay their cash and receive a chit or chips. They return to the table or game and place their bets. In Trinidad, casinos are called Private Members Clubs. Recently many restaurants also have a room where there is a roulette machine and various slot machines where patrons can gamble.

Here a 10 ways that money obtained from illegal activities can be laundered through a casino.

1.The casino may accept dirty cash and perform bank-like services where they may also facilitate money lending services;

2. An individual can go to the casino with dirty money and do some gambling, then cash out the chips and leave. I was told of an instance in Trinidad where the wife of a certain licensing officer was going to a certain private members club with $10,000 every night. Her husband gave her this money from bribe payments that he collected to issue licenses.

3.Friends or associates can be recruited to take a certain sum of cash each and they will also be given instructions to gamble on certain tables or machines and different casinos and locations. Each person can be paid a commission. They will also be told when to leave the casino of course after they receive their winnings or cash the chit or coins. ;

4.Use money obtained from criminal activities to purchase food and beverages with cash  that will be prepared and sold or shared at the private members club. All receipts will be kept;

5.Employees salaries can be paid with dirty cash as a business expense;

6. A limited liability can be incorporated and a company bank account can be opened. The name of the company can be something related to the gambling industry, such as a security consulting firm.  All winnings from gambling can be deposited in this account. If required to disclose source of funds, you can show the chit or receipt from the casino;

7.Use online gambling casinos and play with bitcoin that may request an email address and a password. Your winnings will be paid to you using bitcoin;

8.Rent for the casino can be paid in cash derived from the proceeds of crime;

9.The entire casino can be used as a front to a money laundering operation. To keep up appearances, there can be drink specials, food on sale. I was in a maxi taxi and I heard the front seat passenger tell the driver about a new restaurant in east Trinidad where beers were being sold for $21.00 TTD.  The driver exclaimed that he doubted that the restaurant would be profitable. The co-pilot stated the restaurant was being used to wash money, so it would definitely be profitable.

10.Dirty money can be used to gamble at the casino and then winnings can be transferred to a the bank account of a charity that was created to wash money.
