“Don't be scared as partners to give that hard critical feedback because it doesn't mean you don't love each other, it doesn't mean you don't want to be partners, you're just really trying to improve the partnership.” - J Scott

Action steps mentioned in this episode are:

  • Reflect on your own financial goals and ensure that you and your potential partner have aligned objectives.

  • Prioritize open communication and understanding outside of the business to avoid potential conflicts based on religious, ethical, or political differences.

  • Take the time to evaluate potential partners and their values to ensure a strong foundation for a successful partnership.

  • Assess your own skills and strengths and seek out partners who complement and fill in your weaknesses.

  • Remember that a business partnership is a serious financial commitment, so approach it with the same level of consideration as you would a marriage.

  • If you're considering a partnership, think about whether you would work for or hire the other person

Diverse Skills for Success

Your potential partner's skills should ideally complement your own, according to J Scott. It's beneficial when a partner exhibits strengths in areas where you may lack, which allows for an even distribution of roles and responsibilities.

The Power of Partner Alignment

In successful partnerships within the STR industry, there's a remarkable emphasis on having shared values and goals. J Scott highlights that having aligned values helps reduce potential conflicts and eases decision-making processes. Also, having similar goals sets a unified direction, preventing possible disparities in business pursuits.

Transparent Communication for Strong Partnerships

Transparent and open communication serves as the cornerstone of successful partnerships. J Scott advises that discussing even tough topics can greatly contribute to a healthy partnership, enhancing mutual trust and respect. Regular feedback, both positive and critical, is also crucial in any successful partnership, as it aids in continuous improvement and growth.
