• Holding Money Hostage

    I have owned a couple of businesses in my career. One thing I know for sure is not to mess with people’s money. People get very sensitive when it comes to being paid and getting what is owed to them. Not surprising, I feel the same way. This is a reminder to be diligent with money etiquette.
