I am a self-employed FileMaker developer in Oakland, Calif. I am negotiating a job that the client and I want to turn into a product to be resold. The job will be at least $200,000, maybe more. The current market would be about half the U.S., and it's growing. I'll need to create a company and hire help.
(1) Where or how can I find an extremely affordable lawyer, or would buying a contract template online be sufficient?
(2) Where can I get advice from developers who have been through this whole process before — advice not only on creating a business and product but also on managing a team of FMP developers? Would anyone here be available for a few hours of consultation? Are there web sites or other resources on these issues?
(3) It doesn't look like TechNet is the place FMP developers go to find or share work. I've been lucky and never needed to find work online. What are the best sites, or other methods, for finding FMP developers?
