Future Proofer

After reading enough contracts, you start to get good at picking out what's good and what's bad.

I'm at the stage where I can look at an agreement and find holes that need patching or terms that need adjusting—future-proofing.

I guess that's the essence of building a business isn't it? Preparing for the future, for customers, for experiences, for scale, for growth. Everything needs to be accounted for in the foundational systems we develop when building a business.

One of those unspoken skills that you need when you're in a position like this: an ability to predict. Intuition.

If you predict right, nobody notices because you're prepared. But if you're wrong, well, you better hope you're over-prepared and not under.
