Please take this advice: DO NOT CONFUSE YOUR GOOGLING SKILLS WITH A TRAINED PROFESSIONAL! I have many clients that come to me only after the sky has fallen. As a business adviser and strategist I often find that entrepreneurs chose to complete critical tasks themselves to be scrappy and "practical". This is often a mistake.
Two of the most overlooked team members is a proper Accountant and a licensed Attorney. There is a misconception that these professionals are very expensive. So, instead of paying for an hour or two of their time we make a mad dash to Google's home page. There is only one problem with the contract or template that you downloaded; it may not be suitable for your needs. How will you know? You won't until you are in a jam. Non-professionals can not spot the errors or deficiencies.
When I am deciding whether to engage a professional I first ask myself two questions:
Do not save a few hundred dollars today only to pay thousands later!
Calling with small questions will always be cheaper than unraveling a complex issue.
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
