“Should I Hire A Debt Collection Agency?”

old-lady-collection-agencyAre you wondering if you should hire a debt collection agency to collect an overdue payment on your behalf?

Don’t bother.

You may like to think they have magical abilities to reach into your x-clients bank account and withdraw funds, but not even the government has the power to do that.

Collection Agencies use the same techniques you can use yourself:

  • Emails
  • Phonecalls
  • Official looking letters
  • Persistence

So save yourself the fees (often 25% – 50% of what they will collect for you), and follow this simple process for getting overdue invoices paid.

Here, I’ve recorded the parts of the book that were particularly useful to me. I encourage you to read the book yourself in your entirety because you are bound to find different sections more relevant to you.
