    Collecting the All Important Revenue

    Some of the businesses we work with though are small businesses and do work/spend month to month so sometimes cash flow isn't great for them ( or so they say ). Is it saying these are the payment terms stick by them or no deal or do you show a bit of flexibility?

    O/T: HEALTH What supplements do you take?

    Been in various stores today comparing vitamins, fish oil etc. There are massive price differences. Is this down to marketing costs, % of dosage for each vitamin or is there a difference in quality? Any tips or advice would be appreciated
