My plate is cleaned tomorrow (delivery of housings). I have to do a 500-700 word reflection Essay for the G course I am taking, due Friday.. When this is all said and done, I am taking time off of trying to make money and finish the shop to be a showroom. I need to be able to market it, and that means being able to give tours and have new photos on the website, I have 3 months of work to get ready to open my doors officially. I have signage to make and some lingering props to make (new thread coming on that...) Also outdoor work...its good to have a contract so that everyone knows what is expected from the start, in writing, timelines, quality, etc
BUT, and this is a big BUT, a contract does not guarantee you get paid, civil court in Canada has no teeth, you can talk to anyone who has been through civil proceedings, its pretty much a waste of time/money for small amounts, your best off to wash your hands off it and move on, its better for your mental health
really, the small busines world just works on the honor system, and i really do hope you get some of your money
Now, time to go OD thread two tie-bars 1/2-20 both ends. and drill 10 holes...
