“We believe that there is simply not enough guidance for business owners who choose to partner. The lack of support for business owners is what inspired us to write this book. Our goal is to provide a manual covering the entire process”Page 3

From The eBook

“After working with thousands of business owners, you learn that it is as easy as a handshake to get into a partnership, but it can be very painful/time-consuming – and expensive – to get out of one.”Page 8

Testimonials 

“I really liked The Real World Scenarios . The titles were catchy and the succinct details of each case brought the whole book to life.”
Larry, Utilities Industry

“This EBOOK is much needed, since I found precious little written on the topic at the time I was looking for it. I had no idea the behaviors being perpetrated on me were illegal or that I had legal recourse. The most important thing in my experience was the knowledge and understanding of the law that you communicated to me: That I was absolutely protected under the law, and also that I was the natural buyer. This gave me tremendous strength.”
Randy, Marketing Company

“The ebook’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

“The flow chart on page 7 totally sets the stage for the book’s premise and purpose. Information of this type is very much needed within the small business community, as many entrepreneurs have little knowledge of these topics. The combination of communication, legal, and business organizational strategies is unique and creative, as well as enhances the readability of the book. Kudos to you and Richard for producing such a worthwhile publication!”
Sallie Mullins Thompson, CPA/PFS, CFP

“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
