TMBA442: ‘Til Death Do Us Part? Business Relationships

TMBA442: ‘Til Death Do Us Part? Business Relationships post image

Dan and Ian love receiving messages and questions from listeners of this show.

A few weeks back, one listener reached out to them about what the ownership structure of a business partnership should look like.

This is a critically important issue for many entrepreneurs, and it's an incredibly complicated one to boot. Dan and Ian are business partners themselves, but they have seen many other partnerships evolve and dissolve over the years.

On today's show, we are talking about five partnership styles that we've personally witnessed over the years, how those types of partnerships can affect your business, and how you can find the right business partner.

Dan and Ian know that today's episode is about a rather sensitive subject.

Not many people in American society feel comfortable talking about money. It's quite taboo in some social circles to share how much money you are making or to open up about your financial position.

It's part of the reason so many entrepreneurs don't open up about selling their businesses. They think that nobody wants to hear them complain about how they made a lot of money.

We've found that the types of people that are able to speak freely about these topics are often the ones who are the most successful with their money.

In this week's podcast, we aren't holding back. Dan and Ian are sharing how they feel about money, how much money they want, and what actual financial freedom looks like.

Every once in a while a podcast episode jumps out at me and grabs my attention. This week I was so pleasantly surprised by Scooter Braun's appearance on the the Bill Simmons podcast (Bill's approach to interviews is unique and elite. His conversation with Hulk Hogan is an excellent example of his style). Anyway, Scooter is most...
