Tips from the Trenches

? From Lisa-Marie Cabrelli: “If you need a U.S. address, Earth Class Mail [earth?] can provide you with an official mailing address. The company will e-mail you when you get mail and will even pay bills.”

? From Karen Henrich: “Set up a business PayPal account and link it to your bank account. That way you can invoice clients, take their payments and pay contract workers in any country.”
