The Lifestyle Business Podcast episode 163 hosted by Dan and Ian talk about a clear Guide to Business Partnership in a Bootstrapper’s perspective.

They talked about Bootstrapping as people who invest their time in order to get their business off the ground.

Another important message of this episode is the share of Dan and Ian’s mistakes that could help us have a guide of WHAT TO DO and NOT TO DO in Business Partnerships.

MY BIGGEST TAKEAWAY!

“A partnership is a sinking ship”

REMEMBER!

“What’s worse than wasting your money is wasting your time”

“It’s the ownership that counts”

“There is a huge opportunity for people that don’t have a lot of resources, young bootstrappers to cut deals with people that a lot of that is a little bit farther from them.”
