Don’t Go Into a New Year With a Dispute
It’s the end of the year and while many people are enjoying their holiday season, many who read this are struggling with a serious and stressful partnership dispute. When your business struggles to make ends meet, it’s stressful enough. Add a bitter dispute with a partner, client, customer, or vendor and you have the makings for a nervous breakdown.
Don’t go into another year without starting a plan to resolve the problem. If the other party is somewhat rational, a solution can be found. Businesses with serious problems waste more money lost to disfunction than the cost of fixing the problem. You don’t have to live like this. It isn’t what you envisioned when you decided to go into business.
If your partner is even a little reasonable, suggest that you introduce me into the mix. Having an outside person bring perspective will take the tension off the problem and help the partners find a workable answer. It works. Wouldn’t you rather celebrate?
