The Entrepreneur’s Prenup, a Business Partnership Toolkit

Choose a Business Partner Who Won’t [BLEEP] You

Avoid 6-figure “business divorce” with our Entrepreneurs Prenup toolkit, a comprehensive guide to navigating the toughest—and often hidden—obstacles to partnership success.


There are smart reasons to seek out business partners. Statistics say a partnership is 4x more likely to succeed financially than a sole proprietorship. But they also say business partnership failures in the U.S. are about 50-75% each year.


Because you don’t know what you don’t know 

And you won’t know if you don’t ask.

Many partnerships get off-course because of what business owners didn’t know and didn’t ask at the start. Just a few smart questions can avoid a major minefield.

But most resources on business partnerships tell only parts of the story. They focus just on partnership communication, without the legal guidance around “what if” things go wrong. Or, they drill down into mind-boggling minutiae about buy/sell agreements and business valuation, without speaking to “what will make us a successful team?

Business competition. Two colleagues having disagreement and con


The Entrepreneurs Prenup is a plain-English toolkit that gives you the right questions to ask.

For less than the price of a 1/2-hour legal consultation,

you’ll gain 20 years of legal and business wisdom.

What other business owners have said about

The Entrepreneur’s Prenup


Karla Lightfoot, Market Director NYC|NJ

Ladies Who Launch

Nina, I can’t begin to tell you how helpful the partnership questions from your book were. Not only did they help guide our thinking, but more importantly, they helped us save time and money by enabling us to delve into the toughest partnership issues. Our attorney was incredibly impressed at how well prepared we were and how much we knew about building a strong partnership. Because of the wisdom your book imparted, we were able to discuss issues we weren’t even aware were so important and in the long run our business has weathered many bumps and thrived in a spirit of open communication.

Your advice helped me realize that it’s never too early for planning and self-evaluation (e.g. money mindset, expectations, exit strategies). On a personal note, your humor as a moderator was much appreciated (a real treat for a West Coaster like me). I know entrepreneurs who could benefit from The Entrepreneur’s Prenup; I’ll be sure to let them know about it

  I wanted you to know how I enjoyed the teleconference on The Entrepreneur’s Prenup! I thought I’d just listen, then ended up taking several pages of notes. I hadn’t heard the description of “money mind-set” put that way before – very interesting, and so true.
