That is really poor planning on the company’s part

I had a friend who would get paid a week after she submitted her invoice to her employer. The company got bought and they announced that they were going to pay every 90 days!
So an invoice she submitted in March, she got paid for in June! It was awful. They had to tap into a line of credit they had still. I think they went 9, 000 in the hole while they got the kinks worked out in their budget and got caught up and paid themselves back. It was absolutely ridiculous the change in the pay schedule. I think the company did it because they didn’t have the money to pay payroll and this was the only way they could keep the business running.
I know with your smart head on your shoulders, you will figure it out. I have to balance money every month being self employed. You will make it!
