People who are owed money or are receiving payments from clients can often access large payouts immediately instead of waiting to get paid. And why not? After all, it’s their money!

The most basic ways to bill for services is either through an invoice or accounts receivable. Did you know that you can get paid in 24 to 48 hours instead of waiting 30 to 45 days or more to receive payment?

Other income streams exist in all sorts of forms, including business notes, mortgage notes, lotteries, annuities, structured settlements, and others.

Do your homework! Make sure that you understand the effect of deciding to sell off an income stream; the highest payout may be the most costly in the end!
