Choose a Business Partner Who Won’t [BLEEP] You
Avoid 6-figure “business divorce”
with our Entrepreneurs Prenup toolkit,
a comprehensive guide to navigating
the toughest—and often hidden—obstacles
to partnership success.
There are smart reasons to seek out business partners. Statistics say a partnership is 4x more likely to succeed financially than a sole proprietorship. But they also say business partnership failures in the U.S. are about 50-75%/year.
You don’t know what you don’t know …
And you won’t know if you don’t ask.
Many partnerships get off-course because of what business owners didn’t know and didn’t ask at the start. Just a few smart questions can avoid a major mine field.
But most resources on business partnerships tell only parts of the story. They focus just on partnership communication, without the legal guidance around “what if” things go wrong. Or, they drill down into mind-boggling minutiae about buy/sell agreements and business valuation, without speaking to “what will make us a successful team?”
The Entrepreneurs Prenup is a plain-English toolkit that gives you the right questions to ask.
Our book (text and audio) and companion workbook cover the top 13 partnership issues you’ll likely encounter.
Each easy-to-digest chapter takes no more than 15 minutes. Plus, the workbook exercises help you short-cut your headaches and your legal expenses. Better yet, you’ll create a business partnership founded on trust, integrity, and shared values—so you go into it with eyes wide open.
For less than the price of a 1/2-hour legal consultation,
you’ll gain 20 years of legal and business wisdom.
What you’ll find in the toolkit
A Compatibility Test to confidentially understand if you’ve found the right partner
The Integrity Test
An exploration of the values you share (or don’t) —like honesty, accountability, punctuality—and what to do about the differences
Partnership Agreement Details
The nitty-gritty details of your partnership agreement, so you can use professional advisors more cost-effectively

The Entrepreneur’s Prenup saves you
time, money and aggravation!
Could I sit down with you personally to guide you through all the information in The Entrepreneur’s Prenup? Sure! (Happy to!) But think of the costs. At my hourly rate of $400—the bill would come close to $5,000! And you’d still need to work with your attorney to hammer out your partnership agreement.
Imagine avoiding the issues that [BLEEP] a partnership
for less than you’d pay for a 1/2-hour legal consultation!
