Understanding Contracts in Creative Business - with Kiffanie Stahle of the artist's J.D.

Something I hear over and over again is, "I didn't get into this because of the business side of things; I got into it because I love knitting!" and I know it's something that most of my audience can relate to. So, chances are pretty high that you don't jump up and down with excitement over "all the legal stuff."

Thankfully, I'm going to introduce you to your new best friend in this episode! Kiffanie Stahle is both a lawyer and a creative business owner. She's even a maker in the fiber industry! So she gets it. And, something she's really great at is talking about "the legal stuff" to make it easier for creative business owners to understand.

In this podcast episode, we're specifically talking about contracts. We will be chatting about all of these questions: Why are contracts important? When should I use a contract in my business? What are the key elements of a contract? And Kiffanie even provides an audit on this episode of the contracts that she's signed with me!

If you're feeling uncertain at all about contracts in your business, this episode is for you!
