Episode 55: Creating a Consistent Collection Strategy (With Philip Amend and Jason Beam)
Happy National Construction Appreciation Week! In honor of such an important week, we're skipping out on liens to speak with some killer construction pros! This week, Karalynn is joined by the heavy-hitting duo, Phillip Amend and Jason Beam, who operate CORE Supply out of Houston, TX. Phillip and Jason dive into the often overlooked, yet truly crucial topic of collections, and what it can mean for a business's financial success to create a consistent collection plan. The CORE head honchos discuss how challenging running a business was before they had a plan for how to handle unfulfilled invoices. Collaborating with a dedicated lien team for invoicing, notices, outreach, and collection has fundamentally changed the cash flow of their construction company and made it far more successful than it would have been, sans collection strategy. They explain the essential steps you should include in your collection plan, how you can connect with a collection pro or lien team, and what the benefits of a subscription format for liens and collections can be for a company.Set your business up for success, and listen up to get the inside scoop on how to fine tune your collection strategy and collect the $$$ you deserve!

Episode 51: Learn Your Liens- Illinois! (With Jeremy Baker)
It's time for another breakdown of lien laws in the U.S.! This week, Karalynn is taking a trip back to her home state of Illinois with Jeremy Baker, a clever and committed construction attorney in IL. From your Illinois lien timelines to when you are allowed to send notice for your liens, Jeremy has a lot of excellent insight into how Illinois contractors can ensure they are properly paid for their work. He breaks down details on state licenses, and what requirements exist for contractors operating within the state. Additionally, he talks about the many ways you can lose out on your right to lien by filing an untimely or invalid lien in Illinois, and why no contractor wants to miss out on the leverage liens provide. Jeremy believes Illinois contractors deserve to have the best shot at getting paid what they are owed, and he works to make that intention a reality for all of his clients. If you work in construction in IL, take the time to give this episode a listen and fortify the financial future of your construction company today!
