"I am in the process of opening my own Event Management Company in South Carolina, and was seeking advice. 

* How do you price your services? (hourly?, percentage?, Flat fee?...)

* Contracts...do y'all write them yourselves...or do you hire a lawyer to assist you with this? Do you have a "sample copy" of a contract?

I really appreciate your time! Like I said earlier...I am in the beginning steps and would love any advise you have to offer..."
