Collaborations can be a great way of adding fresh perspective, other interest and a wider audience. They also come with some challenges. Glenn will discuss the pros and cons of collaborations and the agreements you should have in place before starting.
Is the price right?

Pricing your work is one of the most difficult processes you will face during the process.. too cheap and it will affect your market positioning, too expensive and you potentially face making a loss.
