Your Business Partnership Can Survive if You Know the “Why”

“If you know the why, you can live any how.”

Friedrich Nietzsche

What Nietzsche Meant by This

I came across this quote recently in a book by Victor Frankl (Man’s Search for Meaning). It struck me immediately as the core question to every partnership mediation. Nietzsche is saying that if you know why you want something, you can figure how to make it happen.

Do you remember why you went into business with your partner? Do you still have any of those feelings? If things were better between you and your partner, would you want to continue working together?

Think about those questions. If you can express why you would like to stay in business with your partner, I can help you figure out how to make it work. It’s that simple. This is why I often can tell in advance if a situation can be resolved or if it’s better for the partnership to dissolve.

This thought process has many great applications. For example, if your business is struggling and you wonder if it’s time to quit, look for the ‘why’ and write it out. Why keep going? Why quit now? You’ll be surprised at how helpful getting clear about why to continue or stop is to finding answers to how you can make that happen.

It works in other ways as well and could help you break a destructive habit. Do you spend unwisely? Ask yourself why you want to spend on something extravagant. If that answer isn’t very satisfying, you’ll know. You’ll know when you are fooling yourself. When that happens, you’ll see that the ‘how’ to afford the expense will fall short when the ‘why’ is weak.

Succession Planning in Family Business

Let’s look at how to plan for the next generation of your family to run your business. It’s never too early to make a succession plan and the earlier you start, the more options you have.

You can get out of a business partnership if you planned ahead with a solid Partnership Agreement.

How to Escape Your Business Partnership

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.

Take the proper steps to protect the money you invest to start your new business partnership.

Don’t Risk the Money You Put Into Your Partnership

Somebody puts up money with someone who agrees to contribute labor as their contribution to an equal Partnership. Once things are set up, and a lot of money is spent, the other Partner fails to perform, and the troubles begin. I get 2-3 calls like this every week.

Your partner may take money from the business whenever they wish to do so. A Partnership Agreement could protect you.

Your Business Partner Keeps Taking Money from the Bank Account

Partners take advantage of partners every day and they get away with it. It is the most painful call I get. It sounds like this, “I put all the money I had into starting our business. My partner had bad credit and no money, but he promised to do all the work to get the business going.
