How To: Legally Organize Your Client Work and Website

I’m sure, like me, you’ve been diving into some 2018 BIZ PLANNING! But in addition to launches and funnels, have you thought about how to legally ‘organize’ your biz so it’s protecting YOU and your INCOME.

What Needs to Be in Your 1:1 Client or Services Contract?

What Needs to Be in Your 1:1 Client or Services Contract?

Whether you are a coach, web designer, VA, consultant, photographer, or stylist, having a client agreement in place that has all of the following terms in writing goes a LONG way in protect your business (also read as: will protect your income and keep you out of court - trust me, you do NOT want to end up in court).

Here are the different clauses your agreement should have and a bit about what they mean.  

 

Why 1:1 Contracts Are So Important!

Why 1:1 Contracts Are So Important!

It’s flu season...and the flu happens...SO do Nightmare Clients.

I tend to take my health for granted - I RARELY get sick, eat well (*most* of the time), workout (just started training for a marathon!), and overall have been lucky.  But sometimes I end up under the weather, with a weird pain (hello recent back pain, NO FUN!), or you know, need a good teeth floss.  

Knowing that I have health insurance and a doctor definitely gives me a sense of relief during my bedridden days. What if I didn’t have any protection in place? Of course I could go to an ER but no doubt the bill would end up being way more. I see insurance (and healthy lifestyle) as a foundational layer in protecting ME!

I’m sure we’ve all done it.  You get to that weekend away and realize you forgot all of your underwear/panties/insert-garment-of-choice.  Oops. Shops are closed until tomorrow and you guys are heading out for a night on the town.  So you borrow a pair from a friend.  She’s about your size and they will work.  You put them on and get through the night, but the whole time, YOU KNOW deep down that they aren’t yours.  You borrowed them and will give them back (at which case she may or may not let you just keep them…)

Think of your legal documents in the SAME way.

It's 2017...Check Your Biz Health

Welcome to 2017!  The first of the year is a great time to look not only internally at our health and habits but also those in our business. 

I don’t know about you but sometimes I tend to take my health for granted - I RARELY get sick, eat well (*most* of the time), workout, and overall have been lucky. But when I do on the occasion get knocked out, I am quickly reminded how easy it is to take my health in general for granted.  

Written v Oral Contracts - What's the Diff?

Written v Oral Contracts - What's the Diff?

This week in a Facebook group someone posted about a web designer they had hired, paid through PayPal®, and now wasn’t delivering. The website was late, she had missed deadlines, and the quality wasn’t what she expected.  

She was asking what she could do.  Of course, the first question someone asked was did she have a written contract in place.  Nope.
