DID YOU KNOW

DID YOU KNOW
THAT NEARLY 85% OF THESE PARTNERSHIPS FAIL?
DID YOU KNOW
THAT THE FINANCIAL COST OF THESE FAILURES IS EDGING NEAR $8 BILLION? AND THAT DOESN’T INCLUDE LOSS OF HEALTH, FAMILY, FRIENDS, IDENTITY, SELF ESTEEM AND CAREER?
WE CALL THIS PARTNERSH*T AND IT WILL DESTROY YOU.
Most business co-owners do not understand that a partnership is a living, breathing, changing human experience that requires care, attention, heart and compassion. Instead, anger and frustration usually take over, leading to the ever-fatal blaming. This will bring down a partnership faster than just about anything.
• If you are just starting a business, we will help prevent you from ever becoming this nasty statistic.
• If you are currently buried in Partnersh*t, we can help you extricate.
• If your business is in a growth phase, a dangerous time that can challenge even the best partnerships, we can help you navigate.
We know that Building a Human Foundation is the single best deterrent there is against Partnersh*t and the partnership failure that follows. Through a series of in-depth, strategic questions designed for soul searching and tactical planning, our 7-Step Partnersh*t 2 Partnership Process walks you through potential partnership and business minefields, helping you to:
1. Create self-awareness and accountability
2. Learn to communicate in healthy, forward-moving ways
3. Learn the art of collaboration
4. Declare exactly what you do and do not want
5. Identify areas of conflict and compatibility
6. Learn how to compromise effectively
7. Learn the power of gratitude and contribution
8. Build a powerful business strategy
9. Create a targeted, focused, meaningful brand and marketing strategy
10. Create the company that you want, that makes you happy, successful and gratified.
11. Create a strong, healthy Partnership Plan that includes an exit strategy
12. Or help you decide that the partnership is not going to work, enabling you to walk away emotionally, physically and financially intact.
The right partner can be a tremendous business asset. The wrong partner will bury you. So before you commit to a partner, commit to yourself. Do the work.
BUILD YOUR HUMAN FOUNDATION FIRST. THEN BUILD THE BUSINESS. IN THAT ORDER.

I’m here to help. Really. I wish I had had this information when I was neck-high in Partnersh*t and lost everything.
Don’t do what I did. Do what I’ve learned.
