Establishing and enforcing healthy professional boundaries with your clients is critical for all business owners, especially if you own your own business and work from home, where the lines between work and home life are easily blurred.

As a business owner, it's inevitable that you'll face minor conflicts and disputes at some point. Whether it's a client who refuses to pay a bill or an independent contractor who fails to fulfill the terms of their agreement, dealing with such issues is a simple fact of doing business. However, given the time and expense involved, filing a lawsuit in civil court to resolve such minor disputes typically isn't helpful, so taking it to small claims court may be your best option.
