have been in the credit and collections field since 1987. I never aspired to be a debt collector, I just kind of fell into it. I was living in RI and moved to NH and went out looking for an office job. I found a job at a company that makes cedar shoe trees, as an Accounts Receivable clerk. I then took over the Collections aspect of the job and found I liked it and did a great job at it. I have been doing it ever since. One of the things I like about collection work is that you can see your results. I also like making people happy and one of the things that make people happy is receiving money. So I make my collection calls and send my letters and money comes in and everyone is happy, except maybe the person who had to send the money
I have been a Credit Manager are quite a few different companies and written credit and collection policies for many companies. I have tried to give you an example of some of those policies in this book. Some of the information may not work with your specific line of business but there is something for everyone in this book.
This can be used as a guide for your own credit policy. You can use parts of this policy or adjust any parts of it to fit your business. You can also just use parts of it or all of it.
