An Independent Contractor Contract (also known as a 1:1 Services Agreement) is used if you are the person providing services OR when you are hiring on a hourly/part-time/project basis.

And frankly, without one you are taking a big risk (with your time, money, and business)!

More Questions? We Got Answers!
1. Why don't I create my own contract, I mean you can find anything and everything on the web … right?
Hmmmm, I don't know about you but I wouldn't try fixing my own filling or sewing up a huge cut on my arm. Why? Cause I didn't go to school for that and have little to no idea what I'm doing (even watching some YouTube videos isn't going to help!)
Guess what? I went to law school and learned HOW to write contracts and after years of being in the online business world, I know exactly what needs to go in them. And no offense, but you don't! Sure you can look at other peoples or do some googling but...will you ever REALLY be sure that you have everything it needs to protect you?
You Don't Know What You Don't Know…
2. Why shouldn't I just buy this off one of those big sites that pump out templates?
Well you certainly could, but why do that when you can get a lawyer drafted and approved (do we even know who writes those) contract written by someone that actually KNOWS your business. I've been around this neighborhood and know the ins and outs of the coaching world - I have a coach, I've been in coaching programs, and have tons of friends & colleagues that are coaches - I know what needs to be in your contract.
Don't spend the next few years wondering if your contract is going to protect you, buy now and KNOW that it will!
3. How do I use this in my business?
Follow the directions to customize and then you can turn the contract into a PDF and use with any customer management or digital signature software (e.g., HelloSign, DocuSign, Dubsado, 17Hats are just a few)
4. Does this work if I'm outside of the U.S.?
Yes -the templates are customizable for countries outside of the United States. However, I always suggest getting a local lawyer in your jurisdiction review the templates for you especially if you have any questions
5. What is your refund policy?
The template is an instant download so there are no refunds. However, we will work with you to make sure you’re 100% happy so please email us at email@example.com if you have any issues!
6. Are you my lawyer now?
No, this is a legal template that you will complete, it does not create an attorney-client relationship and the template is not be construed as legal advice.
7. What if my client doesn’t want to sign it?
RED FLAG, contracts exist to create parameters and a better working relationship, if your client does not want to sign, that is a big red flag!
