In today’s episode, I chat with corporate powerhouse turned entrepreneur, Linda Taliaferro. Linda shares her experience transitioning into entrepreneurship and the unforeseen challenges of poorly written contracts for her top dollar services. Linda gives us “The TEE” on a client calling her out on her “flexible” contracts (that she initially thought was solid enough to protect her), the money she lost as a result, and how she’s adjusted things in her business (hint: solid contracts!) to combat this issue moving forward.
