Customize This: Copy Project Contract

Use this as a template for your own contracts with clients. Generously shared with us by Bob Bly, his "boiler plate" contract format is easy to use, well appointed and professional … but simple and plain enough to not sound like a bunch of legal mumbo-jumbo.

Inside our exclusive closed group, you'll be able to connect and converse with your fellow PWA members and mentors in a direct, real-time way.
