If you haven't then you are indeed a lucky duck!
When you do have troubles with collecting though, consider
what "Ask Dave (Barnier)" will do for you:
1. First he'll have an initial conference with you to
discuss A) the balance owed to you and B) what documents
you might have that Dave could include with his Demand
Letter that he sends to your non-paying customer.
2. He'll then write up that Demand Letter and send it
off (along with any accompanying paperwork) to that non-paying
3. Then he'll follow-up with a phone call to that non-paying
4. Then he'll report to you regarding your customer's
response and he'll consult with you regarding what your

After that, if you'd like him to spend more time on it
(such as to prepare a settlement agreement) then that
additional time would be billable, but only if you want

David will ask you for a total deposit of $475 prior

OSHA says "Hello"!
you be ready when OSHA drops by your jobsite? Most
small to medium size contractors believe that OSHA will
never come visit them because they are so small. Unfortunately
that kind of thinking can get a guy in trouble!
See, the thing is, no matter how small your company might be,
if you are a contractor working on a site with other contractors
then you are just as likely to receive a visit as the large
contractors are. Why?
Well, when OSHA visits the site to see another contractor,
trust me when I tell you that they're going to find you and
The next thing OSHA says to you will be a question: –Do you
have a written Safety and Health Program?” (In California it's
known as an "Illness and Injury Prevention Program").
A blank stare on your part at this point of the conversation
becomes expensive and makes your life miserable!
The correct answer is "Yes and I have a copy of the program
right here on the jobsite with me. Would you like to review
BUT, how are you going to show the inspector your Safety and
Health/Illness and Injury Prevention Program if you don't have

show the GC his written safety program and you can't?
