Besides wedding photography in Boise, we also do web and design work all over the world. That used to be a big portion of our income. As full-time freelancers, and especially in the web/app/design realm, we get asked to sign NDAs (Non-Disclosure Agreements) often enough. And we’re fine with it. We would never steal someone else’s ideas, but it makes some clients more comfortable, and that’s the goal.
But here’s the thing: we’ve heard hundreds of ideas, sometimes from people who are pouring their life savings into these ideas. And a big portion of them aren’t worth stealing. Small ideas, and big ideas, take a lot of work to make successful. And we have enough brilliant ideas we don’t have time for. We don’t have time to steal yours.
So if you demand an NDA before you talk on the phone with us, or demand the blood of a virgin and the signature of a reigning prince to seal it, yeah, I’m going to be a little annoyed.
Okay, rant over.
