Cash flow is essential at this time of year, so if chasing late payments makes you feel uncomfortable, outsource those phone calls to a trusted virtual assistant.

Having a Christmas party? How about a catered lunch at your office then give everyone the rest of the day off? It’s the ultimate thank you!
