*BUSINESS LESSONS FROM 2021* Part 5of5
The year 2021 had alot of lessons for many of us in the business space in Nigeria and of course having picked the lessons, I will be sharing some of them this week.
*Lesson No. 5*
People (Individuals) will test you by owing you.
Make sure you ask for your money, but don’t lose yourself or the relationship while at it.
An organisation has been owing me since January 2021 and has deliberately refused to pay, but I held a training in the course of the year and they paid for 3 staff to attend, but its on record they are still owing me, I will not render any service on credit any longer, but they are still owing me. No fight, no quarrel, we might still need each other tomorrow, but that debt will have to be cleared first.
Truth is, some people are not good debtors and they really want to test you, but let your anger or fury be too expensive for someone to afford. I have moved on without that money, that is life. I am not the only one being owed, and some being owed have their relationships have gone sour.
Sometimes, this attitude is deliberate and it is simply an act of wickedness.
_If you learnt anything from this, kindly share with someone out there._
