This contract is meant to be used when you’re bringing on a contractor. More details below!
You’re an outsourcing machine! You’re going to focus on what you love and let someone else handle the things you don’t need to be handling. LOOKIT YOU.
But here’s the thing: a handshake deal (or texts, or emails, or DMs — yikes) don’t do you any favors in preserving your relationships with your contractors (people like VAs, copywriters, graphic designers and social media managers).
Nor do they do you any favors in doing things like securing the rights to what your contractor creates for you, or protecting your confidential information. (“Hi, can we me make sure we have something in writing before I give you my instagram password?”)
Enter: the Independent Contractor Agreement Contract Kit™.
>>>Plus, for the first time ever, you have access to a video recording where Maria will walk you through what each provision in the contract means. Cause, let’s be honest. A contract is worthless if you don’t know what it says.
Included: A word document (which enables editing), a manual for use in connection with the template, a numbered .pdf that corresponds with the manual, and a link to that video.
This Contract Kit addresses terms like:
- Confidentiality and safeguarding things like passwords and other systems that you use;
- IP Ownership;
- Non-solicitation of your clients (in other words, preventing a contractor from soliciting your clients away from you); and
This contract is for general use and does not substitute, offer, nor should it be interpreted as offering, specific legal advice. If you wish to book a limited, discounted consultation to go through this contract template with Spear IP following your purchase, you will have the option to do so.
Let’s talk for a quick second about what’s the WORST that could happen if you leave your relationships with your contractors to chance.
- You won’t own any of the content she creates for you.
- Your confidential information — passwords, client lists or contact info, business plans — isn’t actually confidential. (And she has no legal obligation to keep it confidential.)
- You could actually breach your OWN client contract because you’ve most likely promised that you have the necessary rights to deliver whatever you deliver to your clients….but without something in writing with your contractor, you shouldn’t legally include anything that she’s created.
Avoid those scenarios. Get your relationship with your contractors in writing. An Independent Contractor Agreement Contract Kit is a good place to start.
