An excerpt from my “Going Indie” book: Contracts

Yes, I’m behind on getting this thing wrapped up, but yes, it’s still coming!

This isn’t the entire section on Contracts – just a snippet, but it’s important. In fact, this is probably one of the first things I wrote back in July when I started.

The section starts with this quote:

Until the contract is signed, nothing is real. – Glenn Danzig

Contracts

This section can best be summarized by the following:
Do NOT ever engage in a project without having a written contract in place.

If you think people are trustworthy and wouldn’t want to see any harm come to
you or your business, you still need a written contract. If you’re doing work
for a friend you’ve known your entire life, you still need a written
contract. If you’re working with a client and they tell you that the project
is small and you don’t need a contract, you still need a written contract.
I don’t care what the circumstances are – HAVE A CONTRACT!

It bears repeating:
Do NOT ever engage in a project without having a written contract in place.
