Jack Mencini and Adam Sonnhalter, co-hosts of Dirty Secrets of Small Business® podcasts know the ins and outs of small businesses. Each week, on their radio show/podcast, they uncover a dirty secret. This week’s dirty secret centers on the idea that “good partners are hard to find, but invaluable when you find one!”
Jack and Adam have over 15 years experience in coaching small businesses to success and sustainability with their business Maximum Value Partners (MVP).
They have owned 20 businesses and now give insights to hundreds of small businesses. They understand the details and challenging times that small business owners contend with. Jack and Adam also determine that it is good to have a partner who is different from you and brings a different mindset to the table. If you hire people who think exactly like you do….this leaves little leeway for change or defining concepts that someone who may think differently can offer in the discussion mix.
Try being open and honest with your business partner regarding the good, the bad and the ugly or else it won’t work. Utilize open communications with each other. Try to be on the same page for where you’d like the business to go in the future and have the same ideas with your mission and vision. Not having to debate and increase conflict with your business partner will turn out better for the success and profitability of your business.
If you have a success story or a question you would like to share, email or call (firstname.lastname@example.org or 877-849-0670). You can also call into during the show each week at noon (EST) – 1:00 pm on WINT 1330 AM, call 440-946-9468 to ask your question to the Maximum Value Partners’ coaches!
