Waivers versus Contracts…. What are they – and what’s the difference between them? How do you know when you’re supposed to use a Waiver? When should you use a Contract instead?

In this episode, Lisa shares:

  • What a Waiver is and how it protects you
  • When and why a Waiver will not hold up in court
  • What a Contract is and why you should put it in writing
  • How to know when to use a Waiver and when to use a Contract
  • Different examples of when you’ll use Waivers or Contracts
