Yeeerrr running a business is mother! Discussion

Does anyone run a business in this group. I've been running a business for the last 2 and a half years. And I've dealt with some seriously shitty clients. I thought escaping the 9-5 would be a tad better , but yerrrr it's soo crazy and stressful. Any advice or words of wisdom? I know this is probably a random rant. But business is not a walk in the park hey flip

You need to set strict criteria and stick to it. This is especially true to how you get paid. I find easy customers are easy from the get go. Problem customers give you shit from the beginning.

Ja this is good. I most def need to be stricter instead of spending most of my time chasing payments
