Every entrepreneur has experienced the blood sweat and tears that go into getting a business beyond the start-up phase. You have a vision and people are just starting to notice. Momentum is picking up and you can finally feel the hard work starting to pay off. The day has come… you landed this amazing opportunity to sign a contract with an admired partner, dream client, top-notch employee, huge grant funder, or for an out-of-this-world speaking gig. You are on cloud nine and overcome with excitement, as you are confident this opportunity will take your business to the next level.
Sometimes that contract takes you straight to the top! Unfortunately, many entrepreneurs know sometimes that “amazing” contract could also turn out to be your biggest headache. How could something so good go so wrong, so fast? It can feel incredibly defeating.
