Finding a project is only half the battle -- now you have to agree on a price. I'll share legal templates and email scripts to get the best deal.
How to Grow
You made a deal -- congrats! Now you need to scale it to achieve a healthy return on your investment. I'll help you become a lean operator and build a 100 day marketing plan.
