It Takes Two to Tango: The Perils and Possibilities of Entrepreneurial Partnerships

Did you know that fewer than 20% of partnerships last five years? Yes, these stats come from America, but in our experience, this isn't that far off the British experience, or indeed that of any country.  

I've just read about some excellent research on partnerships - well worth a look.  Do not be mislead by the techy nature of the original date - the insights are eye-opening for any business partnership in any sector.

Among the major findings are:

  • It's the relationship between partners and not the business plan but that leads to success or failure of a partnership venture
  • It's  the interpersonal and emotional dynamics that can upset a partnership - written agreements are no protection

After a tragedy in my life, I have both seen and experienced more counselling than most people. None of it has got through to me. Yet Cathy, in just 2.5hrs helped me to go round it and get past it in a way that makes sense to me. Something has changed, and I feel better for it. It is worth paying for Cathy’s services - she delivers, when other don’t.
