The scenario: I have my own small personal business, which brings in some money every month. I work alone and alone only. I don’t need other people to help me out because it’s a simple business. I pay my bills, clients pay their bills, I get richer by a few hundreds. I’m still hoping to expand in the future by diversifying my services.
The problem: Longevity. If I’m not here, who’s going to be responsible for my clients? Who’s going to pay the bills, collect the money? Family knows nuts about what I do, so they can’t help, and friends? It’s a matter of trust I suppose. I don’t give my full trust when it comes to money, so what can I do then?
I have a friend who started this thing with me, but she dropped off after that when I took full control. She’s still the secondary contact to the accounts in the event of an emergency. One thing is, we met online, but never actually met face to face before. Talking about putting your full trust into someone you never actually met.
In terms of contribution, I’ve contributed 99% of all the work and clients, but she did thought me how to do this and that in the early beginning.
So, back to the question, what can I do then?
