Monet Bush is Art Director and Founder at Modern Monet Graphics, a design team based in Raleigh, North Carolina. Monet uses Shake for agreements and NDAs with her team, allowing the business side of her creative endeavors to remain at the forefront of her mind without any added stress.
How do you use Shake?
When hiring any team member for Modern Monet Graphics, I create my own contract through Shake. This allows me to protect my team as well as myself. I also love the NDA template, as these agreements protect our ideas as a team. It’s so reassuring to have Shake on hand at all times.
How did you handle your contracting needs before discovering Shake?
Before Shake I would wait for hours to get a hold of my legal consultant just to discuss what needed to be included in contracts. Even after receiving the legal advice, I still had to type the agreement myself and always worried if I was missing important legal terms.
I don’t have the lingering voice in the back of my head telling me to get moving on drawing up a contract, so I can focus wholeheartedly on my job and not on something as intimidating as legalities.
What kind of impact has Shake had on your productivity level?
As a designer and director, my mind is constantly pulled in a million different directions. It’s so hard to want to approach the business side of design when I have a pressing new idea for something innovative in our company. It’s also a hassle to hire a lawyer when we are still building our company and its funds. This means the business side of things can get pushed to the side for months. With Shake and its clean design, I simply type in the parts the app asks me to fill in and get it done at the start of business transactions.
Shake takes a weight off of my shoulders because all parties involved are protected, and everyone is able to enter into new business endeavors with open eyes. I don’t have the lingering voice in the back of my head telling me to get to drawing up a contract so I can focus wholeheartedly on my job and not something as intimidating as a contract. It makes me feel very official knowing that I have that ground covered.
To whom would you recommend Shake?
I would recommend Shake to any business professional, but especially those who want to cover all of their grounds when protecting themselves and their company without having to set
aside a budget for it.
