Consultants/Advisors/Strategists/etc: How do you keep doing a good job for your clients when you're burnt out and do not give a shit about the outcome of your work? I feel mentally "done" with my career, but because i don't yet know what my next step should be, I need to stick at it for a while. And i need to not suck so much, even though i can barely interest myself in completing the work. [more inside]
I'm new to the consulting world AND my mind has erased anything practical it might have learned in college accounting courses. My client is really slow to pay me, and I want to start charging them interest for overdue balances. My google-foo is failing, I can't seem to find any bookkeeping tutorials that tell me how to calculate this (daily? weekly? how much?), or even how to format/word it on my invoices. Can anyone either tell me how to do this, or direct me to an appropriate web resource?
