    I had one customer want to pay for a year up front. But I turned them down and told them that I don't do that and said what happens if something happened to me and I couldn't do it due to accident or death.

    4 months up front iv had before, and id advise against even that, it does feel like your doing it for nothing, unless you use the 420 to generate more work or make your work easier, then you wont hate doing it as much!lol
