Getting paid is always a tricky thing for professionals who offer creative services, including design. Mike Montiero of Mule Design Studio in San Francisco led a talk called "F*ck You. Pay Me." on San Francisco Creative Mornings on Vimeo. He & his lawyer cover extremely valuable topics, like firing a client (yes, you can fire a client), the top 6 things you need to know about contracts, and they even provide a 3-point winning strategy. Definitely worth a look!
