One of the most difficult things in any practice is how to keep the bills paid while you are waiting for your money to come in. This is especially true of practices that are relying on health insurance or employee assistance program payments. Some will say that you should just take self-pay clients to resolve this issue, but this is difficult to do particularly when you are first starting out. Also, just because clients are “self-pay” doesn’t necessarily mean that they are good about paying you! Here are some things that you can do to improve your cash flow.
No more do you have to go and buy a cheesy, tame costume from Target. Spirit Halloween has a vast variety of costumes available from baby through adult. Some are tasteful while others are a bit more scary or risque. The best part is that there isn’t a huge price tag to go with your one stop shopping Halloween store. You can buy costumes, candy baskets, scary Halloween decor, and even lighted bracelets to keep your children safe while they trick or treat at night.

My advice to you is to find something that you like to create and something that will sell very well within your geographical area. I paint images of musicians playing jazz music with a palette knife on wood and canvas. When I first started out, I painted a little of everything, landscapes, still life and abstraction and I would have all of them in one booth. I found out that this was not the route you should take if you want to be successful as an artist. Today people come-up to me and say “Hey you’re the guy who paints those musicians, I love your work”. They have identified me and my specialty. I want to make sure people are able to do the same when they see your artwork or see your name.

Having a point-of-sale system and using it strategically are two very different things. Rather than using the point-of-sale system as a glorified cash register; use it to provide superior customer service. The difference will earn you the sales that are walking out of your competitor’s doors.
