You already know the answer, Mick.

You just want validation to feel good about it.

Ask yourself: is this a business or a hobby? Are you in it to make a living, or to make friends? Suer you can *sometimes do both, but what's the priority here? If you don't make billable COLLECTABLE time, will you still be around to help the others that are slow to pay?

Since the older client is slow and disorganized, I say go serve the quick-turnaround guy that pays promptly first, then come back to finish client A when you can. WHen client A figures out that lack of prompt payment equals lack of prompt results, you may convert their behavior.

As you are operating now, you're only enabling their continuation of bad client behavior, aren't you?
