8 questions to ask when forming a business partnership - Part 2

[ Blackboard Fridays Ep.45 ]
by Jacob Aldridge Published

In last week's episode, we asked - with some case studies - the 4 strategic questions potential business partners need to ask each other.

As promised, there are also 4 operational questions. And many a great idea in business has failed because some of these expectations weren't set right from the beginning.

If you have a great idea - for a new, or your existing business - and a potential partner lined up, asking and debating these questions can feel unproductive. Trust me when I tell you - it's better to have a partnership fall over because you couldn't answer these questions, than to discover your incompatibility at a crucial and expensive juncture down the road.

If you'd like all 8 questions in a simple to follow document, just press reply on this email and I will send it out to you.


Take 5 minutes each week to focus on your business instead of dealing with the demands of working in it.
