Eve Brown, Principal at Bricolage Law, makes talking about contracts pleasant and definitely less scary. Let's put it this way: the more you know up front about any kind of relationship you are entering into, be it a lease agreement with another business, or a payment structure for your services, the more you have spelled out on paper that you both have signed, the easier it is to enforce it, and talk about it if something isn't working. And guess what? Eve gives you permission to have that contract on a napkin. That's right. Just have something. In this Training TuneUp, Tin Shingle's co-founder Katie Hellmuth Martin hosts Eve to give you information you need to know on sales agreements, contracts for business agreements, and why a contract is important even when no money is exchanged. Inspired by a question from a Tin Shingler in our member-only Community Boards who was searching for advice on how to prepare an agreement, we reached out to Eve to deliver on an entire TuneUp devoted to this topic.
