Happy Tuesday, friends!
Okay, so this one is for all of my (aspiring) freelancers and entrepreneurs. Have you recently come across a great side-hustle opportunity, but don’t know diddly-squat about drafting up the proper contract? Well, Shake is here to help relieve some of that stress.
While it gives a full disclaimer that it is NOT a substitute for actual legal counsel, Shake (think ‘handshake’) provides users with a platform to create, sign and share free legal documents in seconds. For example, if you’re a graphic designer doing work for a blogger, you would choose that particular template to create your contract:
Then, you can decide if this will be an agreement between yourself and a company or individual:
Once you’ve completed all of the prompts, you’ll then be alerted that the agreement has been created and it’s ready for signing!
Pretty cool, right? I think that this is definitely a great tool for those of us that do freelance with a growing clientele, and may not have a legal background. However, I don’t think “creating binding agreements” should be something taken lightly, so just be wary of using the app around your friends next time at happy hour ;-).
Do you think you’ll try out Shake next time you need to draft a contract? Let me know what you think of it in the comments below, or send me a tweet! To learn more about Shake, visit their website: www.shakelaw.com.
