Why You Need This?

Our Consulting Agreement is an agreement for an individual to act as a Consultant for a Client individually or to the Client’s company. This role is more formalized than a mentorship, and will come with compensation.Set your professional relationship up for success with the right foundations.

It is necessary to both adequately protect your Consulting rights and summarize your mutual agreement for services within a written understanding. Most states are explicit on the definition of Employee v. Independent Contractor classifications and requirements. Consult with an employment or business attorney BEFORE you engage any independent contractor.

This Agreement protects you, as the Consultant.

What’s included?

Who can use this?

A Consulting agreement is a client agreement, where the client will be receiving services from the consultant, as part of the value. The client may be a company or an individual in charge of a company.

A consultant makes targeted, timed recommendations to improve a business. This may be a “hands-on” approach where the consultant works WITH the client to create the change and improvement, OR it may be in the form of a pseudo-advisory role where the consultant provides broad suggestions that the client implements within their business, themselves.

This Agreement allows you to engage a client for which you will provide consulting services to the client Company.

If you are a COACH who provides services to another person who will be YOUR client –please use the Coaching Agreement. A Coach is different from a Consultant in that a Coach works with individuals only, whereas a Consultant works with a Company and the individuals at the Company.

This Consulting Agreement is slightly different from a VIP day Agreement because Coaches mainly utilize VIP days for short, one- or two-day engagements with INDIVIDUALS. If you are a Consultant offering shorter engagements to COMPANIES, please use the Consulting Agreement, and note the time commitment carefully.
