The most important protection for your business – Contracts – Part 1 (Legal Road Map® Podcast S3E62)

It can be easy to get caught up in the flashier parts of your business,  like selling a course or putting together an affiliate program, but if you don’t protect your business with contracts, you could lose everything you’ve worked for.

This week's episode starts my month-long focus on this business essential, covering important items like:

  • A few business scenarios in which you might need a contract (some of these might surprise you!)
  • How a solid contract works wonders for your professional image
  • Why signing a contract is really an act of trust - not the opposite!
  • The five most important things to consider for your contracts
  • A clever tip to get a (mostly) custom contract for your business even if you don’t have a big legal budget
  • The one type of contract that all businesses with a website need
  • Why podcast hosts need contracts

Key takeaway: No matter what type of business you run, in order to protect it, you need to be using solid contracts. Protecting everything you’ve worked for now with a contract can prevent devastating consequences down the road.
