just to be clear, when I received the check for my advice I reported it as working for that week and suspended my claim.
I did however give the school advice by phone in the weeks , prior to being paid, with the understanding that if there was no deal, there was no compensation.
in essence, when they called with a question about the financing, I responded by phone or e mail
OK, not to nit pick but without some of my advice there probably would have not been a project, which would have meant I would not have been paid.
so when the project came to fruition, I submitted one bill for services rendered for payment. The major component was negotiating the price for the project with the bank that was providing the financing.
Just want to be sure ?
