bad business partners

Communication is the key. Work things out or walking away may just be the best thing you do, before things get worse.

“I can’t control your behavior; nor do I want that burden… but I will not apologize for refusing to be disrespected, to be lied to, or to be mistreated. I have standards; step up or step out.”

— Steve Maraboli

How to say no to a bad business partner:

  • Clarify motives from the very beginning.

  • Force them to be truthful.

  • Create a partnership dissolution agreement.

  • Make sure that you can communicate professionally with a potential partner before saying “yes” to them.
