Contracts

Contracts are a big deal. They act as a barrier between your business and anything that might, intentionally or accidentally, try to put a dent in all your hard work and hustle. A good contract is one that keeps everyone safe and ensures everyone gets exactly what they signed up for. Protection is a contract’s number one job.

In Get Your Sh*t Together: The Legal Edition, we’ll give you lots of information to make sure all you need to know about contracts is super clear. We’ll start at square one, get you where you need to go, and help you make sure you’re doing this contract thing the right way.

We’ll walk through:

  • Why you pretty much always need a contract
  • How to know your contract is solid
  • Who gets what kind of contract
  • How contracts protect your business

TESTIMONIAL

"This chapter is by far my favorite of them all. Taxes has been one of the biggest challenges I have had to fully understand when running my business, but now I feel confident in knowing what to file under and what to expect from that decision. It's calming to be able to "speak taxes" now and understand what I am charging, paying and ensuring myself an honest salary."
