I love Venmo. But big clients still send me checks. Either way, the best part is getting paid!

1. Direct deposit. 2. Checks. PayPal and cash are pretty small-time, but great if you like to cheat on your taxes.

Cash is king. I’ve taken payments through PayPal family/friends and that’s been great. Are they a serious client paying you via 1099? Or is it one off stuff?

I send monthly n30 invoices for retainer, upfront and project wrap invoices are n30 too. Clients mostly pay by check but I have a few who recently asked me to set up direct deposit. Works for me!

I’ve been very happy with direct deposit. No fees on either end, and immediate payment

How do you approach asking senior managers/directors/partners about writing recommendation letters? I'm applying to law school in the fall and I need some. For what it's worth I'm a second year staff at a mid-size firm, have had good reviews the entire time/known as a high-performer in my office, and I've worked directly with everybody I'm planning on asking. However, none of them know that I'm planning on applying.

Got served an ad for my dream job brand side. Salary is way more and reviews are fantastic. Not actively looking. Love my agency and flexibility. It would seriously disrupt the office to leave. Apply?
