Absolutely brilliant! I was feeling so anxious and unclear about all of this stuff having recently taken on a commercial client. This answered all my questions, and explained everything I needed to know in such a clear and simple way. One of the best classes I could have purchased for my business at this stage, and an absolute bargain!
I watched this class for free on a replay. The course is very informative on the topic. I purchased the class to get the bonus materials, which ended up being a complete waste of money. The Photographer Clauses document contains images of 5 clauses, not the text. In effect if you get to watch the free replay you can just grab screenshots of the clauses. The CreativeLive Handout is just a marketing page with a link to the speaker's business website where you get a discount code that can be applied to any of the products purchased on her website. I decided to purchase the photographer's package - tried to apply the discount code several times, but it wouldn't work. Not a great experience.
This class is valuable. I feel like a bandit for what I paid. Rachel Rogers is definitely in your corner to help you make sense of the nebulous nuances that could very well be the difference between you making or missing your money goals.
