Business is hard-Lessons from the Kickstart Accounting, Inc Part 3
We get asked all the time how we have made our partnership work over the last 5 years. We know like any other relationship it takes so much hard work to make a good partnership work. Again it’s hard and just like getting in shape you need to put in the hard work to get the results you want and need. Here are our lessons we have learned:
How to work with a partner so that you succeed:
Determine who likes to do what and who is good at doing those tasks. For instance Danielle enjoys building the internal processes of the business so she has created the systems and processes.
Communicate regularly. Decide up front what schedule you will do your planning sessions. Pick up the phone. We all know how hard it is to read the tone in emails and texts and this is a relationship that you need to prioritize.
Put everything in writing. We joke all the time neither of us are married so the only prenup we have is with each other
If you make a mistake, own it
Don’t take life so serious. Danielle is so intense that Lindsay is the perfect balance. Remember you need to have fun, what’s your why? Why are you doing this?
