Everyone in your business is a salesperson and the impression - positive or negative - each person makes is an advertisement for your business. This can add up to hundreds or thousands of advertisements delivered each day.
So, you are thinking of acquiring a partner in your business. Maybe you want a partner to spread the workload or liability. You could have differing areas of expertise and want to become a “one-stop shop.” Or maybe you’re looking for someone to take over when you retire.
Either way, think before you get “engaged” and sign those final papers! As Lamar Curtis of IAG put it, “a partnership is like a marriage without the good parts.” Before moving forward, consider these suggestions.
