As the sun rises on this new year, take a look at the contracts you have in place with your customers and vendors. Take note of deadlines, insurance requirements, key contacts and your scope of work. If anything has changed, you will want to give proper notice to the other party or possibly renegotiate portions of the agreement. It is a good idea to do the same with leases. It is easy to sign a contract and forget to ever look at it again, but there are reasons to revisit your contracts from time to time. A contract connects you to the people and companies key to your success. A contract provides guidance and protection.
