In 2011, Mike Monteiro gave an epic talk “F*ck you. Pay me” at San Francisco’s Creative Mornings. He and his lawyer talked about the importance of contracts for creative professionals. If you can handle the potty-mouth it’s a great presentation.
Mike’s emphasis on contracts obviously resonates with us at Inkdit …we do e-signatures after all! But we we felt we weren’t doing enough to help our customers to get paid.

This has been a fascinating journey, and without them, we wouldn’t have gotten very far.
