Kudos to you and Richard for producing such a worthwhile publication!” – Sallie Mullins Thompson, CPA/PFS, CFP

What Specifically Will You Learn In Our E-Book?

In our experience business partners are either seeking to form a partnership, seeking strategies to use to make their partnership work to grow the business or seeking to break up the partnership. Our e-book addresses all three areas. Review the section below that most clearly meets your needs.

Seeking To Form A Business Partnership?

  • Common partnership benefits and risks you may face now and in the future
  • Asking yourself if you need a partner(s)
  • Determining who is a good fit with 16 simple questions to ask possible partners
  • What to include in legal partnership formation agreements
  • Protecting yourself and your best interests from the start
  • Effective alternatives to equity sharing

“This book provides invaluable insight and guidance on the importance of properly setting up a partnership. Oftentimes, we get so excited about starting a business, that we overlook the importance of selecting the right partner/s. Having the right partner can sometimes make or break the business and potentially taking it to the next level. This is a book that should not be overlooked when looking to establish a partnership for anyone starting a business.” – David Hom, Restaurant Owner

Seeking To Empower Your Business Growth With A Healthy Partnership?

  • How to optimize your partnership for business growth
  • How to conduct an annual partnership review
  • What to do if you’re in a partnership with no partnership agreement
  • Communication tools you can use to prevent and handle conflict
  • Life happens, how to adapt your partnership
  • Keeping your partnership agreement relevant

“This book is long overdue. There isn’t anything quite like it, as it tackles the complex issues in an easily understandable, yet thorough way. Understanding the human dynamics, along with the business pragmatics makes for compelling reading. I highly recommend it to professionals, business owners and entrepreneurs in-the-making.” – Bruce D. Stout, President, The Rainmakers Forum

Seeking To Break Up Your Partnership?

“The e-book’s takeaway is: Think very carefully before choosing a business partner, including whether you even need one. If things are going right and there is no written agreement, avoid future misunderstandings and conflict by putting one in place. If things are going wrong, get professional help to repair. If things have gone past the point of repair, legal recourse is available.” – Ray, Software Company
