Legal for course creators – independent contractors (Legal Road Map® Podcast S4E91)

You’re a busy entrepreneur, and you *probably* can’t handle every single task it takes to create a successful online course.  You'll likely need to enlist the help of graphic designers, copywriters, videographers, and more to complete your online course.

But how do you make sure your working arrangement, and your content + brand!, are protected?

In this episode you’ll learn:

  • Why you MUST use a contract with your independent contractor
  • The most important thing you need to look for if you use your independent contractor’s agreement instead of sending your own
  • If you can include a non-compete clause in your independent contractor agreement
  • The one term you definitely should include in your own independent contractor agreements

Key takeaway: Working with independent contractors to create a successful online course can be a breeze if you take the time to consider the terms of your agreement with them.
