You’re not going to jail, but why does anything that have to do with the law seem so scary when you’re in business? Because we don’t want to screw things up, short ourselves on getting paid and end up doing work we never intended to do. For the independent contractor, this is why the contract that makes us so squeamish. But I don’t want this to stop you!

Contracts are so important. They protect us, our work and make sure we’re getting paid. But they’re also a work-in-progress. You’ll get better with your terms and scope of responsibilities as you work with different client personalities and discover what you will and won’t put up with. 

To piggyback off the last episode with a tax and legal expert, I wanted to share with you contract tips to help you write the best one for YOUR business, whether you do monthly retailers, ongoing services or per project work.

Contracts don’t have to be perfect, they are a refinement process.
