I've been busy since I went back to work 2 months ago. And I am actually really enjoying myself! My new roles include the redesign of the website (Yay!!!) and Credit Control. I've never really fancied credit control. I'm not one for being on the phone if I can help it, and I'm not good at confrontation (unless I'm drunk or seriously peeved). Last time I was put in credit control I was expecting Jack so I was a lot younger, softer, hormonal, and just plain scared.
Now.... now I have 3 kids I need to be strict with and take no bull from. Now I understand the importance of getting the money owed back to the company. And I accept that if I am not proving myself to be an asset to the company I'm likely to find my hours reduced or cut altogether! ("current economic climate" and all that)
So! Credit Control it is! And I'm enjoying it. I'm actually getting results too. Debts going back almost 2yrs are being sorted and paid. I feel like I am making significant progress on some of the suborn clients (and ex-clients) who have been holding off paying. I've researched my CCJs and stuff too and although I have not yet threatened anyone with court action I am confident that if/when I do I'll know exactly what I'm talking about... and we'll win if it does actually go to court.
I have my first Debtors Report to write on Mon morning ready for the directors meeting. Hope they are happy with the progress that I've made!
