How do I get out of my partnership? And, it’s the biggest reason I am always ranting about having a Partnership Agreement. Without a Partnership Agreement, your options are very limited. You accept anything your partner is willing to give you, or you can dissolve the business.
I recommend that partners talk through a specific issue and then draft an agreement (called a resolution) that sets a policy. You can keep this in a binder to serve as amendments (or foundation) to your Partnership Agreement. In this post I’ll explain how to talk about things that bug you with your partner and how to draft a binding resolution to fix the problems.
Is the news, confinement, money problems, fear of the unknown making you depressed? Do this!
There is much to consider when setting the value of a business. Talk with a 100 experts and you’ll get 100 different valuations. These methods should help.
The 2 reasons creating a Partnership Agreement should be your first step when forming a business partnership. First, the protection a Partnership Agreement affords makes skipping this step rather dumb. Second, the process of working out the terms of your Partnership Agreement will reveal potential problems and help you work them out before they happen in the real world.
Never prepare for negotiations by thinking about what you want first. Start by thinking about all the possible things that would constitute a payoff to your partner.
