Module 1 – Power Start

Let’s get started! This first lesson will give you a very solid foundation for choosing the right partners, and setting up things the right way once you get rolling. Specifically you will:

  • Define the specific skills, values, strengths and experience that you are looking for in a potential partner
  • Create criteria for making the very tough decision about whom to entrust with your business name and reputation
  • Talk about what you both need to do to make the relationship mutually beneficial
  • How to spot red flags quickly and exit gracefully — and without legal mess
