Link to Slides (Google Drive)Sample Adjustable Fee ScheduleIndependent Contractors vs. Employees
I know that after our chat, your brain is probably going 100 miles an hour. And that's fair, because there's a LOT to understand.
But I would never leave you hanging! So:
🔹I've linked a PDF download of my slides so you can refer back to the clauses we talked about ;
🔹 I've embedded a form so you can download my Strong Statements of Work Workbook to really hone in on those contract terms;
🔹I've included a collection of information about a 🔥hot topic🔥 we might not have had time to discuss: Independent Contractors vs. Employees (and why it's critical to get it right!);
🔹 I've taken our top articles, built with the "FAQs" from all of my speaking engagements and put answers RIGHT BELOW.
CRMs like Honeybook, Dubsado, and 17Hats are great.
The only bad thing? The signature blocks.
The signature blocks in all three of these CRMs default to a personal signature, and are not set up so it is you signing on behalf of your company.
This is a serious issue when you have a business entity, such as an LLC or Corporation, because it can void out the “limited liability” you get from those entities.
When you sign personally, you sign as YOURSELF, not as the LLC or corporation.
➡ Your block should look like this:
Name: Dustin Smith
I've made this video to walk you through how to change your default signature in Dubsado. This is an easy change that makes a huge difference, legally!
We discussed how contract needs a strong Statement of Work.
Even the best contract can be dismantled by poorly describing exactly what you do, and what makes your services unique!
Luckily for you, I've got a FREE DOWNLOAD that will help you write stronger, smarter statements of work.
Because better contracts = more protection = less drama.
