Ok, I went freelance about 4 years ago…and it’s been great.
My problem is this: I spend time avoiding paperwork. I have a small set of tasks that someone could do.
I’d like to hire someone for (at the least) handling invoicing and collections.
What/who am I looking for? Is that a bookkeeper? [more inside]

I neglected to bill a client for a project I completed in January 2013. Once I realized I was late in billing, my failure to do so in a timely way has felt dreadful and embarrassing and worse and worse in my mind. So, yeah. I've continued to avoid it. [more inside]

I did some freelance work for a small (seven person) webdesign company this past winter and haven't received the final 2/3 of my payment yet. After some missed deadlines on their part, what should be my next step in getting this money? [more inside]

My question is in regards to making sure I get paid for my work. I'll be billing private individuals as opposed to companies and thus am concerned there will be less incentive for them to pay for services rendered. [more inside]

I recently sold a photograph (of dragonflies copulating, no less) to an Italian publishing house. They asked me to send an invoice and appropriate tax information. This is the first time I've ever sold something like this; can anyone tell me what forms, et cetera I ought to use or make? Thank you!

collecting for web design....
I've got a client that is sitting around after they've approved the design. I can't seem to make them get off their asses so I can finish this and more importantly collect the final payment. Any and all advice is welcome.
