I am thrilled to welcome our guest expert, Sharon Toerek, back to this episode of Sell With Authority. It’s her fourth time appearing on the show with us, but for those who are meeting her for the first time, she’s the Founder of Toerek Law and the host of the podcast “The Innovative Agency”.

Sharon is also Predictive’s wicked smart intellectual property attorney and has reviewed and advised us with our client agreements and created our buy-sell and partnership agreements.

She has been helping professionals in the advertising, marketing, and creative services industries protect and monetize their intellectual capital, and manage the legal implications of their marketing and advertising work.

Many of us have faced the dilemma of wanting to have certain crucial conversations with our clients — but not knowing how to approach them without causing friction or damage to the relationship.

On this episode, Sharon and I focus our discussion on how to ensure you get paid by having the right conversations with your clients at the right times. And — we discuss how to start relationships with clients on the right foot from the very beginning.

Ensure that you and your agency get paid for your hard work.

Sharon’s expertise provides the tools and confidence to have these essential conversations with your clients.
