Reading Contracts

Chapter 13 of Fire Someone Today is about contracts: The One Who Writes Wins. In it I mention that you can find surprisingly specific contracts to use as examples and inspiration when writing your own.

One great site for finding real contracts is FindLaw for Corporate Counsel. It has thousands of contracts organized by industry and type: employment agreements, licenses, merger documents, stock option plans, etc.

For example, if you were going to rent your own house to your company for business purposes, you might want to read the details of Martha Stewart’s $2 million-a-year agreement with Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, Inc.
