Beat Stress and Depression By Doing This Simple Thing
Is the news, confinement, money problems, fear of the unknown making you depressed? Do this!
Say “Thank You!”
There are a lot of people that I appreciate. Each day I write 1-3 Thank You cards and put them in the out-going mail. I send them to people I think of and for no particular reason other than wanting them to know they matter. Today, I sent one to my dog’s vet. They sent me some meds I needed even though that’s not something they normally do.
Send one to your local super market. They are working hard to keep our food on the table at some personal risk.
Send one to the post office. It can be any post office. They deal with all kinds of people and work in less than state-of-the-art facilities. They handle mail and packages without question. The government doesn’t think the Postal Service deserves extra funding despite losing $2 billion a week. That can’t set their own rates. You don’t even need names. Just say thanks!
Neighbors? Sure! Clients? Vendors? Yes. Prospects?! Sure! I even sent one to a guy who sent me spam about making me a new website for $200. I looked up his site, found the address and sent a card. Why not? It amused me to do it.
And that’s the moral to the story. Do something random and you’ll feel the benefit. Your spirits will lift. Cost? Under $2. Isn’t that worth it to feel better yourself while doing something for other people? I can’t say there will be economic benefit. Don’t do this and think you’ll impress that prospective client so much that they’ll throw a million bucks in your lap. I wouldn’t want a million bucks in my lap anyway.
Drop me a note and let me know how it goes. Feel better. Things will get better and we’re going to make it. You’re going to make it.

There are many things to cover in a solid Partnership Agreement. In this video, I’ll explain the items that need to be covered. You may have other items to include as well. Keep in mind that there are many ways to address each clause. My job is to offer you options and to help partners agree on how they want to address every line item.
Your Partnership Agreement protects your interests. Ideally you would go to a qualified business attorney and have the proper legal document drafted. But if you are putting it off because of the expense, you can get the key items on paper to protect you and your business.
There are times when you legally can and should lock your partner out of the business. But, those are rare circumstances. Locking your partner out, even if your partner is showing bad behavior, open you to potential liability.
I pay close attention to what is expressed during my private interviews before we start a mediation process. There are 3 signs a partnership will fail.
