Don't be afraid to ask questions . . .
Many artists think they should just say yes and "sign on." Most don't fully read the contracts they're given, if they even care about receiving one at all.
Yes, this may seem like I'm generalizing, but I've only come to this revelation because of how most employers respond when I ask questions about my contracts. It's like none of these (my) questions have ever been asked before.
So what am I saying?
Ask questions for clarity.
Ask questions for true transparency.
Ask questions so that you're not wondering later.
Ask questions so others are forced to respect you, on another level. :)
Ask questions BEFORE you sign on . . . you may find that you may not agree with all the terms. You may even look at it and see what more needs to be added. You may even recognize just how much value you have for yourself.
YOU ARE WORTH every penny!
P.S. Don't forget what your "non-negotiables" are.
