If you plan to enter into a contract and have been given the opportunity to prepare the initial document, spend some time creating the document. You will want it to look neat and professional, and not contain any illegal or nonsensical terms.
Since yours is the first draft, it should be your ideal contract. Include the terms that are best for you, but that are still realistic. For example, don’t include a $1.00 sales price for the strawberry shipment, since this may antagonize or insult the other party, and he or she ultimately may decide not to enter into the contract with you. If you and the other party have already agreed to some terms, such as contract length or shipment quantity, be sure to include those terms in the draft contract. Consider consulting with an attorney to help you draft the contract. An attorney may also be able to provide you with a ‘shell’ or ‘skeleton’ contract so you can just fill in the blanks with the information specific to your situation. Purchase a blank contract from an online resource or an office supply store. Make sure the online resource is reputable (check the Better Business Bureau or other rating organization). However, remember that there is no contract that meets the requirements of the law in all 50 states. Therefore, you must alter the blank contract in order to reflect any requirements of your state’s laws.
