Do you really need a partner?

I have had many partners over the past 19 years, some good and some horrendous. I have been speaking on many investor tele-summits this past summer and wanted to recap a few main points for you in case you missed out……and hopefully I can help you avoid all the yucky stuff.

 

So many entrepreneurs assume that business will be easier if there is a partner to share the “burden” with. What they fail to look at, is the reasons they are hoping someone will be there for them. All things considered, it sounds fun …

Barbara Corcoran Has HUGE Passion

I still feel the buzz from just having spoken to Barbara.  I  admire her honesty and passion and think you will feel super inspired after listening.   And for those of you who have a secret desire to audition for Shark Tank, but have been afraid……she really encourages you with an insider tip… that if you send in a video of your presentation…… you stand a better chance of being picked out of the over 70,000+ applicants!   Holy Moly…….I am in awe of how many entrepreneurs are out there.

Perhaps (again like myself) each week is like a full on swooping roller coaster of emotions.

How to avoid legal boo boo’s

In case you haven't noticed yet, I am all about helping you avoid the legal boo boo's that I made (and there were TONS) while starting and running my first business…….OY were there tons.  I made every mistake under the sun when it came to legal docs, working with investors, and protecting my own personal interests and not only those of the company. There is no reason for you to repeat any of the mistakes I made!  I asked my friend Linda Wang to chat with me about ways you …
